Owner Response
lordhaldon, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Lord Haldon Country House Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Kubda301. Thank you for your review of our Hotel. We spoke with you on the morning of your departure where you raised the issue of noise during the night and your travelling partner becoming sick. As mentioned on arrival, a wedding was taking place during your stay and we had decided to move you into a room that was on the other side of the hotel, away from the function room, instead of the room you would have had directly above the function. Unfortunately we cannot control noise during the night from guests going to or from their rooms, we do however ask guests going up to bed late at night to go quietly and respectfully, without disturbing others. We can only apologise if this was not the case. With regards to your claim of 'food poisoning', we had served well over 100 guests that night including yourself and have since had no other complaints. We advised you to seek medical attention asap, which you did not. Instead you demanded a 'substantial reduction' on your stay. We offered you a reduction on your bill which you dismissed and then threatened to leave a bad review on tripadvisor. You have not provided any medical evidence to support your claim of 'food poisoning' . I would also like to point out that yourself and your sick travelling partner both enjoyed breakfast with us that morning, and thanked us for helping secure you a good deal on your onward accommodation.
