Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. As explained on my previous email correspondence, the £20.00 charged was due to a late check out fee to the address on the registration card. Check out times are clearly explained and on the day you were meant to check out, you have clearly ignored our several requests from 11.30am onwards the request for you to check out so that my housekeeping team could go in an clean the bedroom with a view to get this ready before 15.00pm which is check in time. You eventually left the bedroom by 12.30pm. We have a few photos of what state the room was left and my housekeeping team had a job on their hands to turn the room around and get it clean for the next arrival. It also helps for future correspondence that the correct address is clearly legible on the registration card to enable us to contact guests. I trust the above explains and justifies the reason as to why we have charged you for the late check out. Yours sincerely, Ricardo Santa Rita

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Whilst it is your right to write about how you have interpreted your experience with us, my team also encountered many challenges when dealing with you and your party. We hope and aim to give everyone a positive experience. At times we may fail to achieve our objectives, however I can assure you that the majority of the guests that stay with us have a positive experience and return to our hotel many times which indicates that different types of expectations do exist leading to different experiences. Whilst my team are here to deal with all sorts of guests, at times is difficult to please when behaviours are beyond what is acceptable and in turn, perhaps my team were not as accommodating as they normally are. My apologies for not delivering your expectations. Yours sincerely, Ricardo Santa Rita / Regional General Manager
