So it seems that they don't like my review and have somehow hidden it. Google still indicates a one star review and 31 reviews but only 30 are showing and mine is missing. Maybe one of those dodgy Remove a review companies has hidden it...?
So as I really feel that other people need to be aware of them I shall put it below as I had taken a screen shot of it.
I hope this is ok but I'm sure someone will let me know if not.

cheers

Hi, I second the comment "well said". Could you let us know on which site you left the review, apparently they are not worthy of patronage as well.

Right here and at the moment Cockpit's comment is in first place, right at the top of the comments

Hi, it appears that google will remove a review if it has been flagged as inappropriate. I would guess that the operators of the operation see the review as inappropriate. So much for the independence of the google review system.

Indeed, if it is true that Google will remove a review at the behest of the criticised party, or a "review fixing" third party, the entire review feature is pretty much useless and will over time hopefully be recognised as such.

Do a review of Google's review facility and see how far that gets you.
