Our Guests Will Remember
An Exceptional Cup Of Coffee.
As part of an unforgettable stay at The York by Swiss-Belhotel, our guests will remember an exceptional cup of coffee. The choice of Nespresso Grands Crus reveals our passion for excellence in every detail and commitment for our guest’s enjoyment.
Nespresso has formed agreements with over 15 international luxury hotel chains including Swiss-Belhotel International, working together to enhance the overall guest experience throughout their stay. Nespresso controls all stages of the coffee production to ensure coffee of consistent quality. From production through to tasking, nothing is taken for granted. This is why every cup delivers the ultimate coffee experience.
The Nominations are now closed for the 2012 HM Awards.
We received a nomination for Service to the Community for Relay for Life. And we are still in the running for Hotelier of the year.
Relay for Life
Congratulations to The York by Swiss-Belhotel team members who participated in the Shoalhaven / Nowra Relay for Life event over 31 March/ 1 April 2012 weekend. Relay for Life is an overnight, community event where teams of 10-20 participate in a relay-style walk or run to raise funds for Cancer Council. The event brings the whole community together for a night of fun, entertainment, celebration and remembrance. “The Cure Walkers” team which included Christie Love, Abbie Williams, Kat Murray, Maroochye Wenham and Skye Lawton managed to raise over $21000.00 which will help fund cancer research, education and patient services. This effort was a record for the 9 year history of the Shoalhaven/Nowra event and the team was awarded a trophy for their hard work.
TYSB huge Christmas donation to The Starlight Foundation
Over the month of December TYSB asked all staff, residents and guests to donate a toy for The Starlight room at Randwick Children’s hospital. The response was overwhelming and on Tuesday 20th December 2011 staff took the 3 huge boxes to Randwick where they met with Captain Starlight and some of the many sick children who will be spending their Christmas in hospital. The toys were received with great joy and is something the staff who were lucky enough to go will never forget. After the success of the toy drive we will definitely repeat the drive next year. A huge thank you for everyone who contributed.
