Enjoyed our stay room was nice staff are a little reactionary rather than proactive they need to understand how to anticipate the guests needs particularly in the restaurant

I've completed this form already but you have sent a reminder. This possibly highlights my thoughts. My issue isn't about the quality of the hotel or the time I spent there, it is about your systems and difficulty when trying to book and pay for a room. I tried to book online, got to the final page, then a message appeared to say to contact the hotel directly. I tried and after the line ringing out for a few minutes it was finally answered. The reservations department was busy therefore was told that they'd return my call in 15 minutes. 90 minutes later, after not receiving a call I tried again. I was then told that the reservation department had left for the day therefore I should call back the next day. As the next day was the one I was looking to stay I asked if anyone else could help. I was put through to someone who could. I booked a room and asked to use my points. This was sorted and later confirmed by email. After returning home I checked my invoice to see that I had been charged £150 when checking in and then £595 when checking out. The invoice was for £645. I sent a message immediately to say that it should have been charged against my points and that the charge wasn't correct at all. I didn't receive a reply therefore sent emails to chase a response. I finally received a reply to say that it would be investigated. a further 3 days later the money was transferred back to my account.

Bonjour Mr S., Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Please accept our apologies for this experience, we take the feedback of our guests very seriously, as this helps us to identify areas for improvement and please rest assured that we will be addressing your comments with all our team as well as investigating what may have happened. We very much appreciate your loyalty to Accor and always prioritise our loyal guests for complimentary room upgrades whenever possible, I am sorry this had not been available so far this year as in the past due to the limited availability. We hope to welcome you back for an improved stay in the future and please do not hesitate to contact me directly at any time. Merci, Sally-Ann Jenkinson, Director of Guest Experience

Anastasia C. Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

This was my first stay at this hotel, staying three nights June 16-19 and again on June 22-24. I loved everything about the hotel...rooms were beautifully decorated, the restaurant and bar were lovely and the room toiletries and amenities were first-rate. The staff were helpful and friendly, especially as the rail strike affected my travel plans and the hotel was able to re-book me on short notice for a second three-night stay. The only thing that marred an otherwise great stay was on my check out day when I returned to my room at 10:45am to find two room attendants cleaning my room, despite the fact that I had not checked out and my luggage was still in the room. All soap and towels had been removed so I could not refresh myself as planned. They seemed to think that I should leave the room and agreed to leave when I asked them to do so. The front desk attendant did apologize profusely and promised to look into the matter. She also waived a small fee for a local phone call to compensate me for the inconvenience. I would stay at the hotel again as the location is excellent and the staff are helpful and friendly.

Bonjour Ms C., Thank you for taking the time to share your review. It is a pleasure to hear that you had a comfortable stay with us. We appreciate your kind mention of our team's excellent service, who strives to provide our guests with the best experience possible. Please accept our sincere apologies for the incident with housekeeping. Nonetheless, we thank you for bringing this to our attention at the time and are glad that the matter was resolved quickly. We look forward to the pleasure of welcoming you again. Merci, Sally-Ann Jenkinson,, Director of Guest Experience
