I was very impressed with the Westbury. We were running late all evening but the staff were very patient and held our reservation. The service was excellent. The only small comment I would make is the area in which my party were seated could have been more atmospheric - perhaps different lighting or some candles would have been a nice touch as the rest of the bar was beautiful. Overall we were delighted with our experience.

Thank you for a lovely afternoon! The balcony area of the sidecar was just right for our family gathering of 12. It was quieter than the main area and so we could talk which was great for a catch up and also for the older members of the family who wear hearing aids.

I reserved for 4.30pm to 6pm and received confirmation back. When I arrived I was informed quite abruptly that there was no record of my reservation without any apology or any effort to look into it. It was very embarrassing for both me and my partner.

Ogni anno è sempre più bello, lo staff sono sempre meravigliosi e l'attenzione di ogni dettagli è sempre apprezzato. Abbiamo fatto un aperitivo e poi siamo tornati dopo nostra cena di avere un digestif, è il manager ha fatto tutto e più per noi di avere una tavola di nuovo.

We were overcharged by 6 glasses of Chablis, which we picked up when we were paying the billl. Service in general was messy.

A group of us meet in the Westbury each Christmas. We were disappointed with the service mainly during yesterday’s visit. I sat at the table for 10-12 minutes before my friends arrived and wasn’t offered a menu or a drink by waiters. We ordered food and the waiter got our order wrong (no chips with a friend’s burger and incorrect meal for another friend) it took so long to correct this and we all ended up eating at different times. Then, we ordered dessert. Two of us got the apple tart with which came with rum and raisin ice cream instead of vanilla as stated on the menu. The apple tart dessert was difficult to cut with the spoon and eat and wasn’t what we expected at all. It was like a pancake. On the contrary, main course of curry was delicious. Our waiter (do not remember his name) made errors in many ways and this surprised me as the Westbury has always struck me as a place that holds such high standards from a service point of view. In the end, there was a €12 chips charge on the bill which was incorrect and this had to be corrected for us. In all, the service was extremely poor and not what we have experienced in the past. Regards, Deirdre

Hi, My family and I have been enjoying family day ours for years at the Westbury, from get together, celebrations etc. However, my two sisters and I and our Mum arrived yesterday for a pre Christmas get together. As we were leaving my mum in her seventies, tripped at your revolving door. There was no one there to assist her, we got an awful fright. I found one of your staff members for assistance to get a taxi after this, as we were afraid to get her to walk far. He informed us we had to walk up the back of the hotel. I am aware that this was an accident but was disappointed with the lack of service at this and no assistance while leaving.

We were a party of 9 and had a lovely afternoon thank you. The Sidecar bar is such a lovely bar and the hotel was buzzing with plenty of people around. We were disappointed that we has to ask for some nuts to nibble on. We also had to ask for the macaroon that was to accompany our Boodle Champange cocktails - which was had a total of 5 of this particular cocktail. On review of our bill we were also over charged for an additioal espresso martini
