          Why did the hotel manager say we should have mentioned these matters to the reception when we did and got no offer of help. The building work was noisy and disturbed the peace during the day and health and safety matters were non existent even when pointed out to reception that I would report the safety. How do I reply to the incorrect response of the management who are clearly lying about my continual mention of problems the telephone was logged in their nook twice but on spite of a drawing showing why nop one ever came to sort it out. Reception staff continually ignored my concerns and the site was NOT SAFE.
