Owner Response
Alistair Risk, General Manager at Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa, responded to this review
Dear Uglybird3613, Thank you for your review. I do appreciate the positive comments about the staff, the food and other areas. I am sorry about the situation with the lifts. Whilst I am unsure when you stayed, I can confirm we do have regular scheduled maintenance on our lifts, plus a 6 monthly audit carried out independently. Unfortunately there are occasional breakdowns, but we do respond quickly and can only imagine that the issue you described were two separate occasions. With reference to the Spa, we have endured some issues with our air circulation, and have invested heavily in there to correct this, however, the matter has been recurring despite our best efforts, and we therefore took the decision to section off some areas in the gym. This was some time ago. Again, I am unsure when you stayed with us. The Jacuzzi is another temperamental piece of equipment, which is serviced regularly. We have had an issue with the "Button" which switches on the bubbles. This has been replaced numerous times, however, the issue again seems to recur. The whole hotel is currently closed due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, however, all of these areas are under review prior to re opening. Thanks again for your feedback. With best regards, Alistair
