    Children in bar until midnight

    We had booked a stay at short notice for our anniversary and by and large the hotel was excellent however there was one issue. My major concern was around the amount of children in the bar on the night of the 1st. While I totally understand that your hotel is quite family orientated I was confused when I went to the bar at 9:15pm and noticed at least 15 children under 10 in the lounge and bar. I assumed the children would be leaving by 9:30pm but was amazed to see children there until 11:30, even 12 midnight. I had noted before I booked that the following is displayed on your website, “Please note, children are welcome in our Waterfront Bar until 9pm and until 10pm during peak summer months”. This is why I was very surprised to see children pushing toy prams around the bar well after 11am along with kids rolling around on the floor. I mentioned it to a staff member at the bar and they kind of shrugged their shoulders and mumbled something about the time of the year. After my visit I contacted the hotel to state my concerns, I received a message from the manager on Saturday 4th stating that he wished to apologise and talk to me but was going on leave and would ring me Friday 10th however as of today 18th of January I have not received any call.
