Dear Kylie Bruce, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologise for not meeting your expectations. The $200 bond that we take is a common practice employed in almost every hotel and is taken to cover any incidental charges or damage to the room, which I am sure was explained to you on check-in. This bond is then immediately cancelled on departure. I will certainly be having a serious conversation with the front desk team in regards to their attitude and, specifically that they, apparently, did not inform you of the requirement of the bond prior to arrival. That is certainly not our standard, and I will not accept rudeness from any staff member. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms and bathrooms, and this is attested to by many reviews. We can assure you that the bathrooms were certainly not dirty. The floor tiles in the bathrooms are a mosaic beige tiles and water tends to etch the tiles over time, sometimes giving the impression that that tiles are stained. We have a tile cleaning regimen in place, and I can assure you that these bathrooms are scheduled to be attended to this week. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience, for which we are known. If I can provide any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Sincerely, Richard Christie General Manager Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel

The staff were bright and friendly and the room I stayed in was clean and tidy. I was expecting it to be damp due to flooding but it was all aired and smelt lovely. Everything was easy and accessible and I would stay again.
