Dear John, Thank you for taking the time to write this review with regards to your recent stay with us. First of all, please accept my most sincere apologies for what clearly was a disappointing experience. Please rest assured that we have taken your comments on board and passed them on to the relevant departments for their review. It is a pleasure to announce that we will be implementing many of these upgrades to the property within the next couple of months. Our rooms will be getting new bathroom fittings, air condition, window treatments, carpeting, in-room accessories, and much more! In taking great care of our charming hotel, our main priority is to be able to offer a very well-maintained and comfortable atmosphere. I hope that I can convince you to change your mind about another visit to our property. Please reach out to me directly if you would be willing to give us a chance to turn your experience around. It would be such a pleasure to personally welcome you back to our new and improved hotel! I hope we may have the opportunity of welcoming you back again in the very near future and restoring your faith in us. With much appreciation, Suresh Abbas General Manager
