Restaurant - some good some bad

Dear RAS_Photog, Thank you for your recent review of Best Western The Hatfield Hotel. It is disappointing to hear your dinning experience was marred by the quality of the chips that accompanied your meals whilst visiting our Restaurant. We have recently been experiencing some issues with the consistency of the chips we've received from our chip supplier and I have also spoken to the Head Chef and can assure you we have not changed the way in which we cook our chips. With them being blanched at first to soften and then deep fried to crisp up on the outside and cook through the middle. I am pleased however to hear you were impressed with your starters and found your main component of your meals the Cajun Salmon and Cheeseburger to be very good. Your feedback however is very important to us in order to grow and improve our business and we will be sure to take your comments on board. Please accept our sincere apologies and I do hope that you will visit us on a future occasion and afford us with the opportunity to redeem ourselves Kindest Regards Steven Cordory General Manager

Dear brent68, Thank you for taking the time to review Best Western The Hatfield Hotel. We are thrilled you found the hotel to be perfectly located, clean and comfortable with the food from the restaurant being excellent. I am also so pleased to hear you found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and more importantly that you have already booked a return visit. I couldn't agree with your recommendation anymore to book a Sea View Room. These rooms certainly offer fantastic views of the sea and promenade, regardless of the weather or season. It is always great to hear such positive feedback and we will be sure to pass your kind comments on to the rest of the team. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we are already looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kindest Regards Steven Cordory General Manager
