Loughborough accomodation trouble


We had booked our room already in February at the New Life Guesthouse, very close to the venue. It seemed very nice and affordable.

Yesterday I received an email with a cancellation due to "overbooking". I tried in vain to make them change their mind and cancel the other persons reservation as surely they had made their reservation after ours.

Plus their communication style was cheeky/impudent. (You'd better quickly book some other hotel room as it will be difficult to find one now. - Oh really?? Maybe that is why we already booked in February!!)

You can imagine how angry I am right now.

Does anybody else a reservation with them? You'd better check with them if it is still valid.

We now have a room in the Ramada Hotel. Who else does?

And where are you others staying?

I'm in the Ramada too!

I'm sorry to hear about the guesthouse - I can imagine you're furious. I hate it when stuff like that happens.

That is great!

Have we met in Oslo?

I was there, but I'm not sure whether we met. Looking forward to meeting in a couple of weeks!

Glad you got something else. I think their attitude needs a review on Trip Advisor.

That's awful service! So glad you found something else and there are other bookcrossers staying there.
