UNDERWHELMED!

12/04/2018 CEW19492006, Lancashire, United Kingdom

Dear CEW19492006 Thank you for taking the time to post your review of the Cedars Hotel. I am sorry to hear that your stay was not good and that you were allocated room 11. As mentioned previously this is only allocated as last room availability, and generally not to senior citizens. In respect of your comments regarding the bathroom and bedding etc I can confirm that the hotel is due to undergo a large refurbishment in the New Year which will see new bathrooms in the rooms but in the meantime we are trying to change what we can such as the bedding and towels as quickly as possible. As you can appreciate however these things do take time and I can only apologise that you were in a room that did not yet have the updated items. On a positive note I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your breakfast and that your server was attentive and we have indeed taken note that the tables are a little small for four people. I do trust that you will visit us again - maybe when the refurbishment has taken place - so that we can provide you with a positive experience of the Cedars Hotel. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss your stay with me please feel free to contact me on 01449 6125668 or alternatively you are welcome to email me at reception@cedars hotel.co.uk. Kindest regards

Give it a miss

Michelle W, Front Office Manager at The Cedars Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Jillrw I can only extend my apologies that you were allocated room 11 and found it lacking. Room 11 is usually allocated only as the last room available and, whenever possible, only to guests who are aware of the stairs, ceiling and floor. I also extend my apologies that the room was not as clean as it should have been and we will be looking into this and re-training where necessary. We will also be looking at the allocation and reception procedures as the response you received was not in keeping with your concerns. If you would like to contact the hotel and speak directly to me I would be very happy to discuss your stay Kindest regards
