Great staff!

I have been a regular at The Atlantic for a couple of years. I have never had a bad stay and without doubt, the staff both in reception and in the bar/restaurant have always been outstanding. I have t... more

Owner Response
RicardoSanta-Rita, General Manager at Best Western Atlantic Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Mr Dazzadj , Thank you for your email regarding the pre-authorisation of £50.00 on your Credit Card. I thank you for bringing these matters to our attention. Our procedures are that we request a credit card to guarantee the booking and we follow this procedure with all of our guests, in which an allocation of monies are retained in the unlikely event that a guest forgets to pay his bill on departure or damages are made to our property. This procedure is followed by the majority of Hotels in the UK and around the world. Providing no extras or damages occurred ,the banks usually release the pre- allocate funds within 3 working days, and depend from bank to bank. I trust that the above explains my team's procedures. We always encourage our guests to make a reservation in our Restaurant in the eventuality the Restaurant maybe fully booked. May I thank you for bringing the matter to my attention, and I do hope that we will have the opportunity to regain your confidence in our standards on a future occasion. We consider nothing to be trivial if it displeases our guests, and we take all complaints very seriously. Again I thank you for bringing these matters to my attention as our success depends on customer’s recommendations. Kind regards,

A disappointing stay
