Hi there I would like to leave a message for the hotel manager if possible. I am very disappointed with the treatment I am getting regarding an upcoming booking. A friend of mine is begging married in 2 weeks and I booked 2 nights in this hotel earlier in the year. Due to unforeseen circumstances l am unable to stay for 2 nights so I have tried to contact you regarding this and asking to change my booking to 1 night. I made this request last month, so plenty of notice and I received a very abrupt and impolite message telling me “they have a 2 night minimum policy”. I understand these policies and circumstances however I provided plenty of notice and do not see why I should have to pay for a room which I’m not going to be in. This hotel appears to have a very good reputation so I am very surprised. I’ve tried to contact them again explaining my situation as it’s a very personal reason and circumstance for me and I was told it would be looked into. I went onto bookingcom and they are allowing me to book only 1 night so the policy is clearly something the hotel directly are putting on. I would rather do my business with the hotel directly. I would really appreciate if this could be sorted for me as it’s causing me a lot of stress and giving the hotel a very bad name. Thank you.
