We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us, but we cannot do anything to try to make things right as you have now left. May I suggest that if you find yourselves in a similar position in the future that you ask to speak to the management to sort matters out or indeed, move on. We have most certainly never had such comments made about us in the past and this is the very first time we have felt the need to respond to a review! Best regards Clive & Mel Owners
