Simon C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Cedar Court Hotel, responded to this review
Dear shaver2015, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel following your recent visit and I am truly sorry that we didn't live up to our usually very high standards of guest care and service and for this I apologise most sincerely. I am confident that your experience last week was very much isolated and would therefore hope your continued loyalty to us would continue as it is always great to see returning guests. Of disappointment however is that you have chosen to write this public review here and yet not written any positive reviews when we have previously provided you with great service and facilities. I always welcome guests feedback but always hope for a balanced approach. Please get in touch when booking your next stay as I am sure we can deliver you our usually very high standards once again and thank you again in the meantime for your feedback. Simon J Cotton General Manager
