Dear Mia F. Thank you for your review. I am so sorry that the service we provided did not meet expectations. We do take food allergies very seriously indeed and I wonder if perhaps you could email me at info@cedarshotel.co.uk or call the hotel in order that we may look into this further? Kind regards
