Claudia Bezeka needs more experience in the hospitality side of running a B&B. Ragland Mansion offers the first floor for party's. I called all three numbers on the website with no answer but a man returned my call and told me to email Claudia but not the email on the website. I told her I was wanted to have a party on September 7th for my mothers 90th birthday and my mother was actually the great great granddaughter of the original owner of the mansion. I gave her a date got a reply that she always looked forward to meeting the owner's descendants. She asked what time I wanted the party to start and end and how many people. We discussed whether I needed a caterer and she said she could recommend some and she would provide tables and serve ware. I gave her the start and end time and asked what her max was and I was going to have the max. I requested to meet to finalize the arrangements and put a down payment on the party because we were beyond email. I got a reply she had just booked my date with another party.........and for me to advise her what to do next! Why did she book someone else. She could have told them that date wasn't available. So I decided to forget it and try for the next day, Sunday afternoon and make it a tea. I asked in the email for a response but got none. I called the B&B and stated I was trying to get in touch with Claudia and the person on the phone just said, "Okay." .....And silence. So I asked how to do that and he said he'd take my message. I told him I wanted to meet with her so I could put a down payment on the party and sign a contract. I didn't want to lose another date to someone else. Well, I've heard nothing, no phone call, no email, nothing. I then see on these reviews that others have gotten the silent treatment as well. Not good. Shame on Claudia for posing as an Innkeeper and leaving people in a lurch.
