Not up to Best Western usual standards

DGCC, Owner at Best Western The Dartmouth Hotel Golf & Spa, responded to this review
Thank you for completing the survey regarding your recent stay with us here at he Dartmouth Hotel Golf and Spa Your business is very important to us and we value your feedback. i am sorry you did not find the room to your liking, unfortunately we do not have mini bars or fridges in any of our rooms and this is not a requirement under the Best Western criteria. A safe is available at reception where we keep guest belongings when requested to do so, i am not aware that a request was made, but it does state this clearly in the bedroom guest information. The lift failure was most inconvenient and apologies for this unforeseen mechanical breakdown although it was attended to by our lift company and repaired within 4 hours and assistance should have been offered by reservations. Bookings received via a third party travel agent, booking.com in this instance, do not benefit from best western rewards points and only bookings made through ourselves or best western directly qualify for reward points. There are 2 options when booking through Best Western or ourselves, advance purchase, giving more favorable rate however none refundable, or best available rate which does allow you to cancel up-until 4pm on the day of arrival, i am at a loss as to why both rates were not available to you or offered. Regarding the very poor shower and body wash liquids that not replenished once during the 6 nights of your stay is untrue, as well you know this. On 3 occasions i was made aware of this and each time additional toiletries were supplied to your room via the housekeeping manager in person and by our reservations manager, also in person. Yours sincerely, jamie Waugh Director Best Western The Dartmouth Hotel Golf & Spa

Dear Marmaladetamcat Many thanks for taking the time to leave your response on trip advisor. your feedback is important to us as we strive to continually improve our services. Clearly, on this occasion, we didn't meet your expectations within the bar and bistro service for which i am truly sorry, normally something which we are renowned for. Hopefully, upon your next visit you will enjoy a much more attentive service. kind regards jamie Waugh Director
