Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; car supermarket; Car World, Norwich

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; “Words fail me on how rude these people are!!”

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; from the start we were greeted with stupid questions as in “what’s brought you here today?”!! …. and “what have you come to buy?”!!!…Where did the salesman think we were – a sweet shop?!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; we asked the salesman what range of cars he could show us after giving him a price range. Annoyingly ignoring my question, he immediately tried to sell us finance within the first 30 seconds whilst guiding us to a table and computer.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; I again asked the salesman, what cars he had available and could we take a look at them! He replied; we have thousands of cars out there and it could take us all day to find the cars within our requested price bracket. He continued to ask personal and irrelevant questions.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports; I again told the salesman for the second time; we are not happy being interrogated regarding personal information when we’ve only come to look at whats available and could he either help us by showing us the available cars, or if not, we are perfectly capable of taking a look ourselves!’

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; he explained he has to put all our information into the computer as this is the way they sell their cars and straight away proceeded to ask more personal questions whilst at the same time trying to push more finance on us; at which point we had experience enough rudeness, not to mention insulting behaviour, and arrogance by assuming we needed finance in the first place.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; I can’t begin to describe how arrogant these people are, they don’t listen to a word you say only what they want to here and what they want to do.

The salesman was then shocked and surprised when I got up to leave after telling him, “you’ve ignored me three times; I’ve repeatedly told you I don’t need finance and I’m not happy you keep asking for personal and private information when its not relevant at this stage”.

Sorry Louis, but if you had treated us differently and a little more respectfully, you just might have made a sale.

Public….stay well clear of this place

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; the demise on our High Streets ……

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states that; over the past few years we are seeing more and more local specialist providers disappearing from our High Streets. This is forcing us to turn to the bigger and sometimes more costly centres, like B&Q, Tescos, ex-Maplin and MFI; all who have sprung up to form industrial parks or out-of-town retail centres.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports that; whilst the availability of your local ‘down the road’ specialist provider has disappeared, more and more of us are having to go to the retail parks, which from experience, either do not have that specialist item or they only have limited stock and have to place an order, for which I am repeatedly told will be delivered either “next week or the week after”.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports that; I have been purchasing for my various businesses on a daily basis, which takes around 2 to 3 hours per day and becoming increasingly frustrated – products which were readily available are no longer in stock!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports that; in recent years we have now begun to see the demise of ‘superstores’ disappearing from our industrial parks! – REASON – quite simply, it is easier to buy off the internet for products which are not only cheaper but in fact more often than not, arrive the next-day without you having to take a step out of your house!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports; it is easier to spend just one hour per day on the internet, perhaps purchasing as many as four or five different products which arrive within 48 hours, which in fact would be equal to 4 or 5 hours chasing around different providers and suppliers, only to be told that half the products are not in stock or have to be ordered, with delays perhaps up to one week.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; the Village Limits Restaurant, Woodhall Spa is an Unexpected Little Gem!!!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports; on a warm sunny day this restaurant was an inviting ‘watering hole’ for a quick drink before walking into the metropolis of Woodhall Spa’s 1940’s weekend.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states this quick drink soon turned into a very pleasant Sunday lunch and a bottle of wine. The food was good and well presented, the ‘Village Limits’ was very clean and tidy.  It also caters for accommodation to the rear which the stable-like accommodation units are pleasantly nestled into the surrounding trees.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; I can highly recommend this place whether for a drink a meal or a stopover. It is also within walking distance of Woodhall Spa village centre.


Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; Olé Olé Tapas Bar & Restaurant, Lincoln

A Country-Style Ambience in the Middle of the City!!!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; a quirky little restaurant situated in the Bailgate with a beautiful al-fresco garden area, to the rear.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports; we arrived on a Saturday evening to find the place heaving; full of life and clearly the ‘place to be’!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; it is situated on the Bailgate within walking distance to all the best restaurants, bars, Lincoln Castle, Lincoln Cathedral and the Steep Hill leading down into Lincoln City centre.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; we can highly recommend this establishment, either for a drink or a meal in its beautiful surroundings, you will not be disappointed.




Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports on; Bail House & Mews, Lincoln

An Unexpected Surprise!!

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; if I didn’t know better you would have thought you were staying out in the country with its cute and quaint cobbled street mews entrance from the rear, with a private car park situated past the outbuildings which are self-catering, along the green shrubbery York stoned pathway to the Reception, all of which looks very welcoming and friendly.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; the rooms are well proportioned and contain 4 four poster beds, antiques to die for with a nice relaxing self-serve drinks area in a welcoming lounge area.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire reports; there is a Tapas bar next door where you can go for a quiet drink or your morning breakfast which I understand is part of the accommodation.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; Bail House is situated in the heart of Lincoln’s ‘West End’ on the Bailgate which is in the area of Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln Castle and Steep Hill.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; we could not have wished for a better location on our one night stopover to attend the ‘Billy Ocean’ concert at Lincoln Castle.

Raymond Singleton-McGuire states; I highly recommend this establishment. It is clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.
