Dear Sarah How pleasing it is to hear you speak so highly of the staff here and indeed your experience in general. We try our hardest to ensure our guests have a relaxing and enjoyable time and upon your next visit or to future guests reading this then a phone call to reception is all it takes for us to adhere to most wishes and it is our job to help our guests in any which way we can. If you are to stay with us again Sarah then be sure to contact the hotel directly for the best available rates. Kind regards Steve Bailey

DeanCourt, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Jan K Thank you so much for reviewing your recent stay I do apologise that we were not able to offer adjacent rooms, whilst every effort is made to ensure that all of our guests requests are taken into consideration we can not always guarantee that requests are met, In this instance due to several long stay bookings we were unable to allocate rooms next to each other and for this I am sorry. Your request was noted but we were unable to offer this and I do hope this was not too much of an inconvenience. As a returning customer I do thank you for your kind comments regarding our staff and we will try our utmost to honour any future requests. Kind regards Steve Bailey
