Hotels & guesthouses treated to an evening of Cruise & Dine

On Thursday evening, concierges and guest house owners were treated to a harbour cruise and a dine-around three course meal and they LOVED it!  
Guests were welcomed onto the Sea Princess and taked on a 1 hour harbour cruise at sunset.  After that, they were divided into 3 groups and taken to The Greek Fisherman, City Grill and Meloncino where they had starters before moving to the next restaurant to taste their delicious main meals and finally onto the 3rd restaurant for decadent deserts. 

The evening was a great success and enabled to the hoteliers to experience first hand what they will now be recommending to their guests in the upcoming season.

Below are some of the thank-you notes that the restaurants have receieved from the guests.
Just wanted to thank you for the fantastic evening last night.
I enjoyed the food at the 3 restaurants.
Just a thought- the City Grill seems to be quite dark inside if one compares it to the others-not sure if anything could be done about that.
Kind Regards,

Thank you for a great evening last night – you have GREAT product, food, service and ambience are excellent.  There was such a cool vibe at the Waterfront last night, it really means that summer and holiday season is in sight.

Firstly, thank you for a great evening last night.
The food was to die for and the dessert at Meloncino is definitely highly recommended.

Thank you so very much for a wonderful evening last night.
I was beyond impressed by the very structured and perfect organisation of the event and the planning put behind this, AND then we got so spoilt with all the delicious food!  It ran very smoothly and despite you all being so busy last night we still felt we were guests of honour.  Thank you all very much for the wonderful presentation of your yummy foods, we were very spoilt and we at Abbey Manor will most certainly continue to promote you to our guests and with summer being here (well not today) we will most certainly plug the cruise/dine option, it’s a wonderful idea.  Well done to you all and thank you for thinking of us at Abbey Manor
and inviting us.
Best of the season to you all
