Wasted Weekend
Where do I start. I booked on line 3 weeks since, to meet with friends, upon arrival it was clear the hotel had been closed for sometime as the car part reflected a scene from Jurassic Park with overgrown weeds, and pigeon feathers in the lobby, and then wasted 3 hours of my life unsuccessfully finding alternative arrangements despite help from the team. I basically have wasted, a weekend, paid childcare and inconvenienced myself and partner, all because the website took my booking, my money, had knowledge the hotel was closed as they admitted other clients had referenced the exact same experience to them. I tried checking in to the hotel at 3 having had earlier drinks with friends, so not expected to be “stranded” captive, unable to legally drive so had I not had to get my partner who is an inexperienced driver to drive on the motorway in an unfamiliar car which was distressing for her.
