Dear ADAMOC Thank you for your review. To be honest I am having a very strange week on Trip advisor as I am receiving comments that I have not had in 4 years. I take all feedback very seriously and any cleanliness issues will be dealt with very quickly. I have now had 3 comments about cleanliness and will be personally reviewing all 73 bedrooms and bathrooms with the head housekeeper and maintenance manager to rectify any issues with immediate effect.. I have never received feedback about the restaurant like yours, only positive comments. I am really pleased with the décor, atmosphere and menu but I totally understand that we are all different. Again our bar is well received as it is very homely, with very comfortable sofas, TV's as guests do like to watch a variety of programs, a very well stocked bar with bar stools for those that wish to sit at the bar, a good bar menu and very friendly staff. I am sorry that it was not to your taste. As I said before, I will be taking immediate action on all cleanliness issues raised but in terms of the other comments I do feel they are your personal opinion, which you are fully entitled to and share but I just do not agree. Kind Regards Brent Hutchins General Manager BEST WESTERN Smokies Park Hotel

The hotel is sat next to the main road so is easy to find and on first impression looks rather inviting. The rooms are ok, but the walls are very thin and you can even hear someone having a shower. Th... more

Dear warriorCallowEnd Thank you for taking the time to review on hotel and I am sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction. I will not tolerate poor standards of cleanliness and shall be meeting with the head house keeper to discuss your comments. I am pleased you were happy with your meal in the restaurant but again disappointed to hear you comments about the bar menu. Our head chef is very committed to delivering high standards on both menus and will review the standards on the bar offering. The one big surprise was your comments about the teams service as regular readers of our reviews will see how highly they are rated. I take all feedback very seriously and will investigate what happened. I can only summaries at this point that it was a bad day and for some strange reason they were unable to deliver their normal high standard of service, for which I am very sorry. I wish I had had the opportunity to discuss these issues with you directly and would always advise guests to contact e directly on Hope this experience does not put you off staying with BEST WESTERN again Give us a second chance and I am sure you will experience what many other reviewers are saying about us Kind Regards Brent Hutchins General Manager BEST WESTERN Smokies Park Hotel

Dear Suzanne Walker Thank you for posting your review and letting me know of the issues your experienced. I am so sorry that you were given this room which was a mistake on our behalf. We have just had 15 bathrooms refurbished to a new modern standard and the room you stayed in was on this list but had to be taken off at the last minute. Unfortunately we had already booked out all our rooms on the night you stayed. This is no excuse for such poor standards and the bathroom has since had a total deep clean and will be the next one to be refurbished. I am also very disappointed to hear that you contacted our guest service department and did not get a response from me. I deal with all guest feedback and remember you feedback well. I replied to you and asked that you contacted me directly and heard nothing, which I was surprised at. Since reading your trip advisor review checked my system to find that my response was unsuccessful in its submission and now understand why you feel ignored. Please can you contact me directly on my email to give me the chance to resolve this issue. I am pleased that you liked the wedding you attended but was sorry to hear that you found the drinks you choose expensive. We do try our best to remain competitive compared to other hotels in the area but also understand we are more expensive than pub prices. We do try our best to manage guest smoking in the hotel bedrooms and apply a fine when smoking can be proved. We do give rooms that have had evidence of smoking a deep clean but the odour is very difficult to clear quickly. I do hope you contact me as I hate to hear of such dissatisfaction and would like the chance to try and put things right. Kind Regards Brent Hutchins General Manager BEST WESTERN Smokies Park Hotel
