Trampstruffles, Thank you for your review, may I say that considering you say that you have had so many issues during the course of your stay, t it is very surprising to me that you did not consider it necessary to report any of these at any point during the course of your stay, which would have enabled us to take positive action while you were in our care. In response to your comment, "searching for the 4 stars", let me assure you that we worked very hard to achieve this recommendation, and continue to work extremely hard to maintain the standards necessary to be recognized. We are all hard working and genuinely care about looking after our very many guests that use our facilities each year. I will share your comments with all members of the team and assure you that we are committed to improving our performance at all times. Your Sincerely, Alan Price
