This month, we are continuing to highlight excellent service around London, and where better to start than with one of our hotel partners who shares our service ethos? The Hari is a five-star boutique hotel in Belgravia, where our Members can book a working lunch at preferential rates and where some of our staff recently went to compare notes on service during a training day. At The Argyll Club, we’re committed to delivering and celebrating excellent service – here, we catch up with Andrew Coney, The Hari’s General Manager, on his views on life at the hotel, what makes great service, and his outlook for 2020.
