Owner Response
GeneralManagerApollo, General Manager at Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Valued Guest Thank you for completing this review regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologise for not meeting your expectations. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. We have identified the room and the staff member that cleaned this room, and it is clear in this instance, that what you have explained is not our standard nor what we are known for. I can assure you that had you made us aware of these issues, we could and would have made every effort to rectify the problems by moving you to another room. We generally get great feedback and are very proud of our rooms and comments that we receive in this regard. I have had a meeting with all the housekeepers explaining our standard in which we adhere to, and the importance of ensuring that it is maintained. At the Apollo International we have 94 rooms, with most of the rooms having walk through showers. Any guest that has problems negotiating the bath, and wishes to have a walk through shower instead are accommodated without question. When you are next booking your visit to beautiful Newcastle, please let us know, and we will ensure that this request is met. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience. If I can provide any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at 02 4943 6733. Kind regards Richard Christie General Manager Sincerely
