Family weekend break

Food very good but practically the same menu for lunch & dinner every day, more choice needed. Very disappointed & disgusted actually to be told by the very lovely & professional staff that the 10% se... more

Owner Response
Catherine Clifford, Owner at Best Western Lansdowne Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Navigate724041 Thank you for your review. Im sorry you felt that the menu choices were limited. However, from an operational and quality perspective, it is necessary at this time to have a more limited offering. Im sure that you have seen in the news the issues with recruitment in the hospitality industry and because of that we are only able to offer a more limited choice. When we get fully staffed in our kitchens, we will then introduce more choice. As far as your comments re the tips for our staff you have been misinformed - I can only imagine by a new member of staff! All gratuities are shared out amongst all staff. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Hotel needs to embrace freedom day fully

Inflexible about breakfasts, asking for mask wearing post freedom day. Needs to lead by example if we are to ever be released from this covid nightmare. Receptionists are miserable. But great location... more

Catherine Clifford, Owner at Best Western Lansdowne Hotel, responded to this review
Dear alanr152021 Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear you weren't happy with your experience with our reception team. We normally have very positive feedback re our staff. Please can I point out that across the board 'freedom day' means 'freedom of choice day'. If a business still has some covid protocols in place it is to protect their workforce and also a choice made by individuals either who work at the hotel or who come and stay. Remember this is about relaxing restrictions and being sensible in maintaining some. We believe we are doing the right thing by our business, staff and guests whilst at the same time ensuring excellent customer service and a smooth operation. Thank you. Catherine Clifford Partner
