Hotel de Vie was launched in 2007. The brainchild of two successful business managers, it was based on what they felt would be liked by their guests, from their own experiences at hotels from around the world. Various consultants and advisors were brought in throughout the process and after six months of dedicated renovation, the hotel opened its doors in early September 2007.
Although the hotel was originally targeted at the leisure travellers' market, for business travellers tired of the monotony of the major chains, Hotel de Vie offers a more tailored approach. Guests are treated as individuals (often by first name) rather than just 'another room number'.
Around 85% of our guests during the week are staying with us whilst on business in the area. Many of our business guests are now such regular visitors to us that when we're full they re-arrange their meetings for another day, so they can stay with us rather than anywhere else!
