Booked a double room but as they had a large party in we were given a twin which over looked the smoking ares so the room was continually refreshed with cigarette smell. Whilst the room appeared to have been recently upgraded they clearly did not get round to the beds. No

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. I have spoken to the reception team and to the best of my knowledge, nothing was mentioned to the staff. If at all possible, I would ask that you contact me at the hotel to clarify a few points as none of our twin rooms overlook or are near to a smoking area. With regard to the headboards and linen, I will review this with the houssekeeping team Again, thank you for your review Regards Dave Taylor General Manager

A lot of people like the Newtown, so perhaps this was an isolated experience. Restaurant was not busy, people were friendly and welcoming. The food, however, was mostly disappointing. Starters: Home made pate was good, however the menu said Melba toast but we were served it

Dear customer Thank you for your review. I am pleased we were able to get some things right, but it does sound like you hd a poor experience with us, which is not good. If possible, I would like you to contact me at the hotel, so that we could discuss a return whereby, I can assure you the food will be better. Since your visit, I have employed Jamie Clarke as our new head chef, who together with his team has managed to deliver some fabulous food. Hopefully, you will contact me, so that I can demonstrate, to you the standard of food that our local and customers from further afield keep coming back for Kind regards Dave Taylor General Manager

Dear Marie Whilst I can understand you frustration, I would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few points. First of all, to the best of my knowledge, no member of staff has refused to speak to you about your cancelled booking. With regard to your deposit, I believe you made your booking via bookings.com. Like most other hotels, our policy is to take card details to secure the booking. Nothing is deducted from the card until you attend or there is a no show. With the limited information you have supplied, it has been difficult for me to clarify your exact booking, however, the issue to the best of my knowledge arose as a result of the Goodwood dates being changed. If this is what you are referring to, then, the reason we have had to cancel some bookings, was to facilitate our many loyal customers who return year after year. With all of this as a consideration, I would suggest if you have not been able to find anywhere to stay yet, that you contact me at the hotel and I assure you, my team and I will do everything we can to accommodate your booking Regards Dave Taylor General Manager
