Owner Response
Mark T, General Manager at Best Western Plus Swan Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Reviewer Thank you for your valued review left for us. As mentioned in person, over the phone and on all other media platforms you have given your valued feedback we are sorry that you did not personally enjoy your time with us at the Swan Hotel. Having shared your comments with my very hard working Christmas team they are equally sad that you did not enjoy your experience. Your own personal subjective opinion of the Christmas Lunch service was not mirrored by other diners who have fed back such exceptional reviews of the same meal. I do as expressed though 100% understand and appreciate that each and every one of our preferences and expectations are different and respect your feelings on this. Again i am sorry that i was unable to give you the requested refund and do appreciate that the venue you stayed with in Christmas 2018 did give you a full refund i hope our conversations explains why a refund was not granted. Thank you again for taking the time to post your reviews. Kind regards and my very best wishes. Mark Tobin General Manager
