Dear Streetgt Thank you for the review, as you are aware there are many changes taking place at the Hotel including the very noticeable refurb throughout. All of these are for the better as we begin to make this great Hotel even greater. We apologise if you have had any inconveniences but assure you it is only temporary. The menu is changing next week as we build the team and continue to make much needed improvements. We look forward to welcoming you back as a regular guest and welcome your feedback on site where we are actually able to help you. Kind regards, Samlesbury Hotel Team

Dear Ken S Thank you for the review - we would like to take this opportunity to give our feedback on the version of events. The Samlesbury Hotel is undergoing some major changes to make great improvements here under new ownership. As per your comments we are undergoing some refurbishment work starting with Reception and moving onto the bedrooms. The Restaurant and bar will follow that along with meeting and function rooms and this Hotel will, we are certain, become one of the best in the area. We are encountering some teething problems which we are gradually ironing out. However, it can be misleading to guests when they book a dinner bed and breakfast rate through a 3rd party as to what the expectation is against the offering. We don't guarantee that it will be the Restaurant, and due to making changes on recent days it is closed but we have a great alternative in place. In any Restaurant you would be expected to wait to be seated or ask at the bar and regardless of how many diners or guests you think we have in, the operation is our responsibility rather than such negative comments which are factually incorrect and personal to the teams capabilities. Whist we were very sorry for the issue with the starter and did apologise - you were fully reimbursed with the whole meal, and provided also with drinks. A decision made by the 30 year old experienced Duty Manager, who also offered to move you to another bedroom, with an upgrade and take all the luggage for you. You declined this and requested we do not also charge you for the room, due to the mirror which you have just previously said did not bother you, but also that if we weren't prepared to offer it we would receive a negative review in return. Again, we are sorry if we fell short on some minor aspects of your stay, but are quite saddened to read some of the magnified comments. We do hope that you will return in the coming yest when most of the works are complete to see what a difference it has made. Regards Samlesbury Hotel Team
