Dear Mr and MrsMWarwick Thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your recent visit, I am pleased to hear that you and your mum had an enjoyable stay with us. Your kind comments regarding our staff have been well received. There is as you have said a refurbishment programme in place and our general manager since his arrival has developed a plan which will see all areas developed albeit in order to keep guest disturbances to a minimum this is an ongoing project. I must apologise for the fan outside of one of the rooms, this is from an extraction fan and is normally off by 10pm If you are to stay again in these particular rooms and find that this is on beyond this time then please let our team know and we will address this. On behalf of all the hotel we hope that your mother had a fantastic birthday and you both had an enjoyable stay. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
