18/09/2016 Scott S,

We stayed overnight here as my cousins 30th was just down the road. From the outside the hotel doesn't look the best, more like an old people's home but don't let that put you off. Checking in was n... more

Owner Response
D W, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Atlantic Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Mr Keech Thank you for taking the time to complete a Tripadvisor review. We do not advertise the Duplex Suites as having Air Conditioning. The size of the bed is in fact a Super King Size Bed and made up of 2 beds zip-link together. Which are designed for hotels and usually we get compliments on such. Whilst I am aware that not everyone has got Sky TV at home, I understand my receptionist assisted you with pressing the Sky button on the remote control to enable you to view the TV. Even though I have offered you a complimentary stay including Breakfast as a gesture of goodwill, this was still not satisfactory for you. To which I felt it was a generous offer. You advised us that if you did not receive monetary compensation you would post a review on Tripadvisor, to which I accepted and hence my response as above.
