Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I am sorry if you were disturbed by wedding guests. We do have rooms on the other side of the hotel which are a little more expensive but situated away from the function rooms. If you had rang down to reception to complain our receptionist or night porter would have happily offered you an alternative room. Kind regards Joy

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and I am pleased that you liked your room and enjoyed our food. I apologise for the lack of Air Conditioning in the room. It is not something that we have considered installing up to now but we will maybe have to in the future. The weather in the North of England is not normally as warm as it has been over the past two weeks. We do have fans at reception which the receptionist would be happy to have brought to your room if requested. I am pleased that this will not deter you from staying with us again and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards Joy
