booked a function room for a 50th birthday celebration. told conflicting things by different members of staff re: heating to warm the suite before party begins. Also told we were not allowed use of the disco lighting for the party. How ridiculous is that!

Thank you for your recent review of the King Charles Hotel The Disco lighting is only for the use of the In House DJ. As you booked your own DJ, I would of thought he should have his own lighting!
