Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were there for my nephew's wedding. When we arrived for a 12.30 seating at 11.30, there was no bar open and almost nothing prepared, almost as if we were an inconvenience !!! The set up was small to say the least, the seating was so close together that the person at the side of you had to lean forward to be able to sit side by side !!!!! The evening went well, although i would say that the food was a little on the sparse side. Breakfast was another matter !!!!! We were instructed to be down for breakfast between 9.00 and 9.30, we were down for 9.20, had our cereals and a cup of tea, went up for our cooked breakfast only to be told that there was no bacon left, after much of an ado we were informed that we were too late and the chef had gone, no bacon available, the guy had no idea about customer service !!!!!!! I must say that this is the first negative review i have ever written but feel so upset about the treatment that my wife and i have been subject to has pushed me into penning this review. Apologies for the rant !!!

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback regarding your recent experience at our hotel during your nephew's wedding. We are truly sorry to hear that your experience did not meet your expectations, and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience you may have encountered. Regarding the seating arrangement and food during the wedding, we apologise for any discomfort or dissatisfaction you experienced. We are somewhat perplexed as to who provided the instruction regarding the breakfast timing of 9:00 am to 9:30 am. Our records indicate that the wedding manager overseeing your nephew's wedding explicitly communicated a breakfast commencement time of 8:45 am for all wedding guests, as reiterated during the check-in process at reception. Regarding the depletion of food items, it is worth noting that service began 45 minutes prior to your arrival at the buffet station around 9:40 am, after you had consumed your cereals. Consequently, certain food items had already been depleted as the breakfast service was drawing to a close. While we regret any inconvenience caused by the unavailability of bacon, we did offer alternative options to accommodate your needs. We uphold a commitment to fairness and equality in addressing guest inquiries. However, we must note that there were instances of raised voices during our interaction with you, necessitating apologies to other guests for any disturbance caused. We value your feedback and strive to ensure a positive experience for all our guests. Best Wishes, Joe
