16/02/2017 Heidi W,

Stayed for 2 nights over valentines day 2017. A 10 min walk away from the train station and 15 min walk to the city centre suited me and my partner down to the ground. The manager on shift when we boo... more

Terrible experience

Owner Response
KILIMA, Manager at BEST WESTERN Kilima Hotel, responded to this review
Dear faye232, What can I say other than I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are upgrading the rooms all the time and are currently putting new flooring in all the bathrooms. As for the noise you endured with slamming doors this is something we do not normally suffer with as most of our guests are respectful of other but it would seem on this occasion a few spoilt it for the rest. I Don't know what more to do with the parking to make it clearer for guests but here goes. Unless booked direct with the hotel (01904 625787) a charge of £5.00 per day will be charged for car parking. This is clearly marked on all major websites and indeed is payable on one site. I do hope you will come again and on that note please call me personally so that I may allocate you a room more suited to your needs. Yours Chris Betteridge Hotel Manager
