Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your review, we are sorry to hear of your disappointment , but feel that some items need to be clarified, we offer in each room the following amenities 2 x shower gel, 2 x shampoo, 2 x body cream, 2 x conditioner, 2 x soap, plus also the following items, sewing kit, cotton buds and cotton wool , shower cap, iron, ironing board, tea and coffee facilities with unlimited refills available from reception, all these items can be replenished and provided additionally if required by contacting reception which are all mentioned in the guest directory, the bottled water is complimentary and again as mentioned in the guest directory is available chilled and served with ice sparkling or still complimentary rather than a room temperature bottle of water sitting in the room. If any of these items were missing we are truly sorry and will speak to our housekeeping team if we have any shortages of items to ensure this does not happen again. Unfortunately as the wedding x 160 guests was taking over our restaurant and function room, we were unable to offer a restaurant service that evening but a number of guests did partake of our sandwich selection prior to the event taking place. Again thank you for your review and we will ensure that the comments are acted upon.
