Nice restaurant. Not the best hotel.

20/07/2017 Royal45RL, Farnborough, United Kingdom

The staff where good but the room was a let down. Gap in between the bed and a zip through the centre of the quilt. It rained during the first night and the gutter outside dripped really loudly all ni... more

Having been given advanced notice that the car park would be full on our arrival we were given instructions where to park in the overflow car park. However, when you get there, there is still that bit... more

I stayed here for a work trip for 2 nights in May. The hotel rooms were good, the sizes were perfect for 2 sharing which were clean and simple! On the first night we ate at their restaurant which was... more


A real surprise

09/06/2017 David J, Wellington, null, United Kingdom

The approach to, and facade of, this hotel is quite unpromising, but once inside it's a nice surprise. Swish, clean, modern rooms, a very friendly and helpful staff, and a lovely restaurant. Very plea... more

The night porter had appalling attitude. He needs customer service training before he should be left in charge of the hotel. His mannerism is aggressive and we do not expect to be talked to like chil... more

Owner Response
RicardoSanta-Rita, General Manager at Best Western Atlantic Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Mrs Heywood, Thank you for submitting an additional review on Trip Advisor. I enclose below a response I have sent you via Medallia Guest Survey. In the meantime, I would like to bring to your attention that on the night in question, my Night Porter served many other drinks to other guests which appreciated the intervention from Night Porter relating to the noise and behaviour. "Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. My apologies if my Night Porter came across a little aggressive, but as we sometimes experience some feedback when guests use their mobile phones or Ipads to play music after 11.00pm we request that all guests refrain from using such devices with music on...with a view not to disturb their sleep whilst staying at the Hotel. Noise can travel easier at night... I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. If I can provide any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at 01245 268168 & 01206866677. " Yours sincerely, Ricardo Santa Rita / Regional General Manager
