A message from Toni & Vicki...

The strength of empowerment and the power of passion is a gift taught to us both by our mother Beatrice Tollman, Red Carnation Hotels’ Founder and President. On this day last year, she said: 'This is something I have discovered about passion. Far from fading away, true passion glows ever more brightly.' Today, as the world of travel begins to open up once more, we are more inspired than ever by her words…

With warmest wishes for a bright and passionate future,

Victoria & Toni Tollman
