Firstly thank you for taking your personal time to write us a review. I am sorry that on this occasion we have not met expectations. I have taking all your feedback very seriously as i can see from your review that this is not our usual standard of service. I have spoken to staff that were on duty that day and fully investigated this matter, I have provided additional training for all staff involved to ensure that this remains a one time occurrence. I do hope that you will return to us in the near future as we pride ourselves on providing a truly outstanding guest experience.
