Very disappointing stay

18/04/2017 Tasha-Leanne, London, United Kingdom

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel over Easter weekend as we were attending a wedding nearby. Our initial thoughts of the hotel were that it looked like an 'old people’s home' from the outside, a... more

Owner Response
RicardoSanta-Rita, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Atlantic Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Tasha-Leanne I was very sorry to learn of your disappointment regarding your recent stay at the Atlantic Hotel. We take all our guests comments very seriously indeed, and I was most concerned to hear that the room was not to your expectations. I would like to address a couple of items you mentioned. Initially when you came to Reception regarding the bed and the items in that had been left in the wardrobe, the Receptionists on duty misheard you, and thought you had said ‘Boxes’ not ‘Boxers’. Upon the discovery of the items, the Receptionist who was with you was most embarrassed that these items had not been seen/removed by the housekeeping team that day. We sincerely apologise for this occurrence, and the matter has been addressed with the Head Housekeeper and her team. We are currently completing a refurbishment program. All our rooms have zip-link beds making them Superking size, which are designed for hotels and usually we get compliments on such. This offers a very flexible sleeping solution and for this reason they are particularly popular in hotels and guest houses and I am sorry that these were not to your personal liking. Suffice to say the room you were given was not up to our standards, and we apologise for this. I know that you have not stayed with us prior, and would like to take the opportunity to regain your confidence in our hotel. I would like to invite you for a complimentary stay based on two people staying, with us on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, Bed & Breakfast within the next six months. Date is subject to availability. If you wish to take up this offer, simply contact myself when you wish to book. Yours sincerely, Ricardo Santa-Rita / Regional General Manager My direct email address: RSanta-Rita@rose-and-crown.com

This hotel wasn't really what I expected and whilst I don't want to appear too picky, there were a few things which I wasn't overly impressed with. Firstly, there wasn't a lift and for a modern hotel ... more
