Thank you for your review. I am disappointed to hear of your recent visit to the hotel no being the best. We pride ourselves on great customer service and I am again disappointed that our team didn't excel on this occasion. With this in mind I apologise on their behalf. We take all feedback very seriously and I will be investigating this further.
