Very good place, beautiful green area.

We stayed there in the middle of March, the lobby area was undergoing some renovation works, but we were advised about it prior to arrival, so it wasn't a major issue for us, our room was very comfort... more

Dear jeanninerose37, Thank you for reviewing your stay with us, I am sorry to see that you were disappointed with a number of aspects during your time at the hotel. I note that you had been staying with us for a couple of weeks and you don’t appear to have raised any of your concerns with us prior to your departure, had you done so the team and I would have welcomed the opportunity of discussing this with you and addressing your concerns. I am sorry that it was necessary for us to cut your stay with us short due to the Government instruction which was issued earlier this week for hotels to close. On the day of your departure myself and my senior management team were working hard behind the scenes in speaking with our team and coordinating the hotel closure on the back of the Prime Minister’s announcement the evening prior and I’m sorry not to have been available to speak with you personally about your enforced departure. Our duty manager was readily available and I believe spoke with you on a number of occasions prior to your departure, although she has no record of the points you have raised in your review having been discussed. I appreciate the nature of your stay and I am sorry for any additional upset caused by the closure of our hotel prior to the end of your stay. We face unprecedented challenges to which we have carefully followed Government guidelines not only for the wellbeing of our team but also our guests. I do hope that you may consider returning to stay with us again here at Chilworth Manor during better times in the future. Sincerely, Joe Lythe Operations Managed
