Owner Response
WillowBankManager, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Willowbank Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Guest Thank you so much for your great review of the hotel. It’s always nice to receive such great comments about the hotel and team; I will ensure they are all made aware. I am sorry that the bar closed early on the Friday evening, I will investigate this as we normally close around 11pm and then the night porter takes over to serve the residents. I will also look into the Black Pudding situation to ensure quality going forward. Thank you for your constructive comments; we look forward in welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future. Kind regards Damon Yoxall General Manager
