colin veitch says:HI DOUG & MANDY,
WOR GRAEME HAS SPREAD THE CANASTA WORD AFTER YOUR HOSPITALITY AND YOU MAY BE GETTING A FEW ENQUIRIES SHORTLY.RARE TO SEE A COMPLAINT ON YOUR WEBSITE!!! BUT WHEN YOU READ DEEPER ITS OBVIOUSLY NOT FAULTY SERVICE....MORE FAULTY CUSTOMER...CARRY ON THE GOOD WORK...AND MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM...REGURARLY...TO AVOID...DISAPPOINTMENT...HAHAHAHA

Well...thanks Colin but if the guest has that perception of us then its clear we failed in the communication department. All I would add is that we do try and be friendly but sometimes its a long day and we like to chill out ourselves when we have capable staff looking after front of house. I really dont think Mrs Dale was expecting a personal butler and confidante for 21 a night.

Our Reply:

A Complaint


We DO publish all constructive criticism...

Mr and Mrs Dale...I'm really pleased you found the hotel to be clean and in a good location.

I'm very disappointed to read that you think we didnt talk to you and I am a bit puzzled to be honest. BUT, I dont want to come across as though I am defending this, really, as it was YOUR perception that we didn't make an effort to talk to you....so it's obvious we failed.

I have to be REALLY honest here and mention that I can't even remember you...so you must be right.
Most of our guests will vouch that we are friendly and try and go the extra mile...I'm truly sorry that we didn't seem to do this with you.
Shame about New Year....it's a brill party and we only have one room left.
Have a great time when you next visit Blackpool even if you don't choose us to stay with.

Mrs Dale replies:-
"thank you for replying. you said u only have one room left for new year i have looked on availabity and it says you have two rooms left."

:)
Thanks - I had forgotten to update the online system.
Ooops..update...just sold that too
We're now FULL for our New Year party.
Have a great time ...wherever you go :)

The food, rooms and staff were all great and it was always nice to see a welcoming face ready with a pot of tea each time we returned to the hotel. We also had good weather too! Also special thanks to Doug for our unplanned tour around every back street of Blackpool!! We will definitely be coming back, just not when the skyride is on lol. x
