Tipping the staff is at your own discretion. If you would like to give a particular staff member a gratuity, please hand it directly to the staff member. Here the normal 10% of the bill can serve as a guideline. However, if you want to give a tip to all the staff who contributed to your great experience, such a tip can be paid in at reception or can be brought to the attention of the Duty Manager – we will ensure that all staff will benefit from your generosity.
