Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Our Lounge is open to the General Public and therefore available to all both guests and General Public. I am a sorry that your plates were cold and I will speak to our Head Chef regarding this as normally all of our food is served on hot plates. I do hope that you will consider us when next in the area so that we can provide you with a more positive experience. Kind regards Joy
