Nice hotel but certain aspects of the layout dont work

16/02/2017 Joyce81264, Glasgow, United Kingdom

Our two night stay was a gift from my son. B&B with dinner on first night. First of all we'd preferred to have been asked what night we'd like to have dinner rather than being forced into first night... more

Dear Reviewer, We are pleased you enjoyed our hotel,and the quality of our food was very good, our sticky toffee pudding is a firm favourite of our guests, however as you rightly pointed out this was a voucher / deal which has proved extremely popular with over 650 being sold this year alone, the voucher promotion clearly stated the menu prior to arrival, and that dinner was included on the first night only. Your comments on drink prices seem strange as follows a large glass of wine is priced as follows £5.75 (250ml) 1/3 rd of a bottle yet you say that £16.95 for a full bottle is reasonable, a mere 10p per glass more expensive than a bottle. We also have two lounges in the hotel one with music, one without music based on guest feedback some prefer a nice quiet relaxing room with a real log fire to relax in, rather than one with music, however we are able to cover both of these having the two loungesto choose from. Finally Thank you for your review

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, but you are quite correct , breakfast does finish at 9am during the week & 10am at weekends, which is printed in your guest directory, on your room card & our breakfast display at reception shows this. We should however have offered you an alternative for this we are truly sorry and we will ensure our team are briefed on this in the future.

Very Good

Dear reviewer, Thank you for your review, the special deal offer you had purchased was extremely popular with over 650 vouchers being sold this year, and the smaller offering for dinner does have the option to upsize. All our team would like to pass on their personal thanks for your kind words.
