Dear Stephen Thank you for taking the time to review the Priory Hotel following your recent stay with us. I was glad to hear that you liked your bedroom, with comfortable beds and plenty of tea and coffee making facilities for you. I was however disappointed to read that your shower didn't work very well and that your bin had not been emptied. I have taken this up with housekeeping to ensure that we don't get a repeat of this in the future. I feel that at £12.95 our breakfast is reasonable for a full continental and cooked option. Had you have booked an inclusive breakfast rate this would have been reduced as part of the package. I do hope that we can welcome you back to the hotel in the near future kind regards Rameth Kurdi General Manager
