Dear joank312, Thank you for your review following your recent stay with us. I am disappointed to read that you felt us worthy of a 'poor' rating, especially when you have chosen to book again (which I do appreciate), however I wonder if things were so bad if you want to come back again? I was sorry to read we didn't live up to our usually very high standards of guest care and satisfaction however I can assure you we will make every effort to score nothing but 'excellent' from you when you revisit at Christmas. If there's anything else you require to make you more comfortable, please do not hesitate to let me know. Kind regards, Simon J Cotton General Manager
