Dear lenyDorchester_Uk, thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent stay at The Westminster Hotel, Chester. I am pleased that you found our staff to be of a welcoming nature as we do strive in delivering "hotels with even more personality" throughout our hotel. On the other hand i am extremely disappointed on the two points regarding problems with the shower/bath and no hangers in your room as these minor faults can disturb a positive experience. I have discussed your points raised with management, our maintenance team will perform an audit on all of our rooms and reform any damages with showers and pressure rates. The same will apply to our room attendants who will ensure that a minimum of 5 hangers are available in every room in our hotel, apologies as this could of been rectified if acknowledged during your stay. To that end I hope we can welcome you back in the near future and show that we do strive in delivering the best possible stay. Kind Regards The Westminster Hotel, Chester.

Dear Lizard_lounger, thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your recent stay. I am disappointed to read you had more negatives than positives during your stay. I have passed your points raised regarding your room cleanliness to our housekeeping manager to review as this is unacceptable, all of our rooms must be cleaned to a professional standard, prior to check in. I am surprised with your comment regarding our award winning buffet breakfast as we are renowned and complemented on a daily basis for our offerings, nonetheless i have passed your comments onto to our breakfast supervisor to monitor and report back. We have recently installed a booster/extender re: WIFI to ensure all of our guests receive the best possible free WIFI we have to offer, apologies. I am pleased to read your comments regarding our staff as we do strive in delivering the best of customer service. Many thanks again for your comments and i hope we can welcome you back in the near future. Kind Regards The Westminster Hotel, Chester.
