Dear Dembocheatalot Thank you for your mixed review and for your insight into the running of a hotel. Firstly I would like to get my trumpet out about our free car park. I have worked at many hotels that either have a very small car park, an NCP next door charging between £10- £15 for over night parking. I feel that the fact we have enough free parking for all our guests is a really good facility. Glad that you found the rooms ok but must assure all readers of this review that all our tea/coffee making facilities come from an industry leader who supplies many of the large hotel chains. I was also pleased that you had no issues with your evening meal or breakfast. I would like to say that we are always reviewing our bar prices to make sure we are competitive with other hotels in the area. We offer a varied drinks menu, which demonstrates plenty of choice to meet all guests budgets. To be fair, drinking double spirits is not the cheapest option and I am not a fan of offering doubles at a very cheap price as it does not meet with my culture of being drink aware. We want our guests to have a good time but feel responsible not to encourage excessive measures in one glass. Your budget of £50 per head being spent by all the guests is some distance from the actual facts. This on average would be about 10 to 13 drinks on top of the wine included during the day. I am sorry the lager was not available in the function room you were in but due to the set up of the hotel, line cleaning and the fact the rooms are not in use every day means that not every drink is on offer. That said we have a large selection including lagers in all our function rooms. I am pleased you noticed the wide variety of events that take place at our hotel, including our fantastic Christmas parties which are selling fast. Sorry to be direct but I am very proud of our hotel and feel many of your comments were not rounded views. I am very quick to admit when we get things wrong but on this occasion don't feel there is much to address. Kind Regards Brent Hutchins General Manager BEST WESTERN Smokies Park Hotel

Dear peter m Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and I am so sorry you were not totally satisfied. We have invested so much over the 5 years I have been the manager but we will never stop. We have recently opened our new Filament lounge, which is the hotels fabulous new bar. All our rooms have had work carried out on them and we shall continue to review them and make the appropriate actions to ensure they are up to the standard we want for our guests.
