Booked via the Best Western website for one night for hubby, myself and his guidedog. Made it clear on the remarks page that hubby is registered blind and is a qualified guidedog owner. The receptionist was fine until we wanted to go to the restaurant for our dinner as the bar was very busy and other dogs were there off the lead (this would distract my husbands dog). She was friendly but insisted that PETS were not allowed in the restaurant! Explained guidedog etc etc but she was not having it. It was resolved after a call to the manager and she did apologise and we were given complementary drinks at the meal in the restaurant (which was empty!). But we were still not happy with hotel itself. Room was very old fashioned and shabby, the carpet was bitty and the bed was hard as nails! The pillows we think were made of concrete, my one gravel! Although nicely presented and a lovely waitress from Poland was falling over herself trying to be nice the food was not great with just about thawed prawns basically dumped on the plate with very little rose-marie sauce. The steak was tough, the chips were nice. The breakfast was good though. Won't stay there again and have now been put off Best Western hotels.
