The company i work for has been working away for several weeks local to harrington, staying at church farm lodge. During my stay.. On the monday the room was freezing at night and me and my work mate were clothed in bed. I went to politely ask for an electric heater off a young lad which didnt seem a problem at the time. The following night we hadnt had a fresh toilet roll so again went to ask for a spare roll to be rudely asked if we had checked the cupboards and what we wanted it for?? Everynight after a shower we had been putting our towels on the floor in a pile obviously expecting them to be taken away and replaced with fresh ones the next day.. (standard b&b procedure) until the thursday night which we realised that already being there for three nights we hadnt had fresh towels, they had folded the ones up off the floor and put them back on the radiator. As we were not shown on day 1 where reception was.. We went to the house to ask for some fresh towels as ours were obviously dirty and damp after 3 days... To be very rudely greeted by a lady asking why we hadnt been hanging them back up and using them again.. Our reply was obviously that they were dirty as we are site workers. After being abruptly told we shouldnt be knocking on her door (which we didnt know) we went to see the boss. I again politely asked.. Could we please have some fresh towels... To be extremely rudely shouted at explaing that "this isnt a 5* establishment we use the same 1 towel for a week, you have done nothing but complain since you have been here, i dont know what kind of living you are used to but its obviously different to ours" he was very rude and very unhelpful. Leaving it at that we got up the next morning to be told we werent welcome to stay there anymore.
I would strongly advise giving this place a miss if you
A. Want to have a warm room
B. expect a toilet roll
C. Expect a clean towel daily
I didnt think that i was being unreasonable by asking for these three things, needless to say we have now moved to a different hotel so we dont have to be spoken to like children again.
