Final let down

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel The very positive remarks with regards to the wedding reception are most appreciated especially the quality of the food and service. I am very disappointed that such a good experience was tarnished by an incident at breakfast and as a consequence lowered your score. I am indeed looking into the sequence of events of this and if you could contact me directly I will respond to you accordingly. Thank you once again for your overall positive review and bringing this incident to my attention.

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments re our latest Motown & Old evening. The main suite has been booked up for private functions in recent times but as to not disappoint our regular Motown fans we have operated this evening in our Carvery. The evening does return in January and March 2016 to our main suite so hopefully there will be plenty of room to dance next time. You will also be pleased to know that by returning to our Kennet & Avon Suite there will be 2 for 1 cocktails and drinks available again from 6.30pm until 7.30 pm. Thank you once again and we do sincerely appreciate your loyalty and kind remarks.
