Return to an old favourite

Dear Ms Wragg, Further to your complaint. I feel the hotel acted more than reasonably in its dealings with you. I would like to clarify that the steam room to which you refer in your comments, is actually a sauna (we don't have a steam room) was broken for 2 days (awaiting parts) but is now fixed. At the time, because the swimming pool was fully operational and unaffected, we didn't feel it was necessary to contact guests to advise them, before arrival, as you suggested. No other guests staying this weekend, mentioned the lack of this facility had affected their stay. Because you were so unhappy and even though you had booked on a Best Western Winter Promotion Non-refundable rate,we still arranged a refund.I'm not sure in the circumstances what more we could do for you. Yours sincerely, Andrew Middleton

Fabulous relaxing stay.

Dear Mr Lewis, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent lunch. We are pleased you rate our food highly and we are sorry you felt our service let you down somewhat. Your comments have been discussed with the manager on duty that day.We still offer silver service to our guests but also find many prefer a more relaxed family service , where we leave the vegetables at the table so guests can take more if they wish. At £18.95 for 4 courses, our Ostler restaurant Sunday lunches offer excellent choice and great value for money. Teas ,coffees and other optional after meal drinks are offered on a priced menu at the table. Freshly brewed filter coffee is priced at a very reasonable £2.00 per cup. Yours sincerely, Andrew Middleton
