Owner Response
GMPriory, General Manager at Best Western Priory Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Ceri, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review following your stay with us here at the Priory Hotel. While I'm glad that you found your stay relaxing, I am sorry to hear of your concerns. Please be assured that our car parks are covered with CCTV, as are the rest of the buildings on site. The hotel is currently awaiting the start date of our next stage of renovations, which includes the refurbishment of existing guest rooms. We are working hard to ensure correct staffing levels throughout the hotel's departments and re-training is an ongoing process; which is helped by feedback from our guests. We do hope to be able to welcome you back to us again in the future. If i can be of any assistance, please do let me know. Kindest regards, Kim David General Manager
