Dear Mr Castles Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent stay at the Apollo. We reviewed CCTV footage, and questioned all the staff involved in your booking, and established that, at no stage, did the receptionist attend to another person whilst you were present. However, we take feedback like this very seriously and I am sorry that you felt that you were shunned away. On arrival, your booking was made, by your travel agency, for the wrong dates and for a single person occupancy. We assisted by offering a number of alternative solutions to accommodate the extra night for the earlier than original arrival date. On check out we noted that there were food and beverage charges for a double occupancy, which was not permitted by the charge-back authority from the travel agency. This then took time to be charged correctly. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. Kind regards Richard

Dear Mino010 Thank you for your review regarding your recent stay at the Apollo International. We are most concerned that you did not find your mattress comfortable. We generally receive very complimentary comments about the quality of our beds and bedding. It is obviously difficult to please all guests – some enjoy a hard mattress and some a soft. We can also assure you that, whenever a mattress shows any sign of wear, we immediately replace it.. We offer a bean-to-cup automated coffee machine at the breakfast buffet as well as barista-made coffee at the bar throughout the day. Your comments in regards to the coffee are noted. I assure you that, had you made us aware that the coffee from the automated machine was not to you liking, we would have made you a perfect coffee. We are sorry that there were aspects of your stay that you did not enjoy, and for that we apologise. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. Sincerely Richard
