Friends are very precious commodities- Hotel TerraVina counts their blessings

It is always very upsetting when you think you know someone only to be disappointed by their behaviour, empty promises or their selfish actions- thankfully most of us are good judges of character, most of the time, but now and then a rogue “friend” may slip through the net and cause us to re-think who our true and precious friends really are.

True friends are hard to come by and when you find them such relationships should be worked hard at, not taken for granted; instead they need to be nurtured and cherished.

Hotel guests are similar. Those guests that love a hotel, who come back regularly and are loyal, enthusiastic and supportive should be made to feel special and appreciated. I have written often of how fortunate we are at TerraVina to have so many lovely guests who are so enthusiastic and loyal to us- we try to ensure we appreciate them as much in return and it is always so nice to welcome them back to us… they tell us they feel relaxed and already chilled out as soon as they walk back through the door and for us we already know them well enough to make the job of looking after them and ensure they have a great stay so much easier.

Which brings me back to friends- a good friend is the one that you can spend time with without having to try, who will drop everything to help you at a moments notice, who simply “gets” you. Happily most of us have lots of friends, many of us have best friends who are our most cherished friends, who even if we don’t see them as often as we might like, know we are thinking of them.

Thus in the absence of any such date as a “Friends Day”, (why isn’t there such a day- we have every other type of celebration day?), I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of our loyal Hotel TerraVina guests for their friendship, enthusiasm and custom and remind my own special friends that I am thinking of them all and sending them love, good wishes and cherished memories.

Till next week

    Hi Nina

    Good blog – a very good “thought for the day”, which I am sure is reciprocated by many of your guests. True friends we don’t take for granted, but we do need to take time out once in a while to appreciate what friendships we have – and TerraVina is a great venue for this to happen. We are looking forward to continuing friendships on 28th!

  2. Hello Richard

    Lovely words from you as ever- I have a friend who is currently poorly with a brain tumour and it has made me take stock and realise what is important in life;without great friends the world is a much poorer place. It is lovely to have great friends but even nicer to be a great friend back I think.

    Looking forward to seeing you on the 28th and best of luck to Josh for the Marathon on the 21st
    Love Nina x
