“Grimsby must be one of the most talented places in the world!”

An Evening With Karen And Kevin From Grimsby bought Strictly Come Dancing champion Aljaz Skorjanec, whom performed at the event in Grimsby Auditorium. Kevin Clifton and fiancée Karen were the brains behind the three-hour bonanza, putting on the show after the show Flash Mob, a show which they were both originally planned to star in had to be cancelled at the last minute.

Strictly stars stepped in and helped put together the show, with a helping hand from parents Keith and Judy Clifton. The shower performed to a packed audience in the Grimsby Auditorium, with special guest Susanna Reid joining her partner Kevin from this year’s Strictly on stage once more.

Kevin and Karen together performed a host of different dances, gaining a standing ovation from the everly impressed crowd.

Kevin said: “We were feeling pretty nervous beforehand. It’s not every day you have to put together such a massive show as this in just a couple of weeks, so we weren’t sure how we’d do. We just need to say a big thank you to all those who came and to all those who made this happen!”

Two other Strictly dancers: Aljaz Skorjanced and Janette Manrara – who perform on the show alongside Kevin –also performed on the show, bringing along more standing ovations and fabulous dance moves along the way.

A new star was also born with the appearance of Kevin’s sister Joanne, who has already signed up to perform in the next series of Strictly.

A new dancing star was born when Kevin’s sister Joanne appeared in the show. Wowing the crowd with her dance moves, Joanne revealed that she has already signed up to perform in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing. She originally retired from professional dancing in December of 2013, when she was crowned Ballroom Showdance World Champion.

Three lucky compeitiors had won places in the competition through the Grimsby Telegraph and they all performed alongside the show with three Strictly dancers. They took part in a mini Strictly-style competition that was hosted by the attending special guest Susanna Reid.

What do you look for in a hotel?

What features are important to you in a hotel?

There are little things that people enjoy in their homes, as the little things are what really make the bigger picture. These likes will transfer to other things in life and there are features in accommodation that people look for in order to make their decision. There are universal features that are commonly associated with a hotel and people will look at the features available to them before deciding on whether your establishment is the right place for them to stay. Though these features are basic, they ensure customers have a comfortable stay in your hotel, so here are seven key elements to consider when choosing a hotel for your next holiday.

Cleanliness

Cleanliness is the biggest factor in any form of accommodation. There’s no point having luxury items in your hotel if they’re going to be covered in dirt and grime. Lack of cleanliness hugely affects the chances of people staying at a hotel, as well-maintained bathrooms and various facilities will provide comfort and tranquillity to customers. Cleanliness is a must for all businesses, regardless of size.

Services and Facilities

Customers want to ensure that their accommodation will not only give them a clean and healthy environment, but one that delivers both great service and facilities. These two factors can be the decider between yourselves and competition, as they support your needs, no matter how niche.

Location

Location is an incredibly important feature, as it will determine how far people are willing to travel to reach local commodities. The shorter time in travel will result in longer days, so this will maximise holiday time for your audience. The hotel location needs to be optimal for the best coverage from hotel stayers.

Price

Pricing is naturally a factor for anybody on a budget, but travelling ‘in style’ doesn’t have to mean that they have to pay out of their nose for a hotel room. Competitive pricing is always a good thing!

Amenities

Though many travellers don’t plan on spending most of their time at the hotel, any time that they rest in your establishment should be rewarding and effective. Good amenities will aid them unwind in pleasure and convenience. Amenities to look for are:

·        TV

·        Mini bar

·        Hair dryer

·        Climate control

·        Comfortable seating

·        Phone and internet access

Reliability

Reliability will forever ranks high among travellers. When choosing a hotel with a good brand name reputation, any hassle that usually presents itself is taken out of having to choose a hotel for every trip. Your holiday will be is fuss-free when you know that you’ll be getting clean, well-appointed comfortable rooms with excellent services and facilities.

Service

The people will make the hotel what it is – travellers should expect prompt, efficient and good service from their accommodation. Good hotels make customer service a priority, ensuring to quickly attend to requests from their customers. Actively ensuring that guests are getting the most out of their stay is a must, whilst also respecting their space and privacy.
