    Sounds like a fab hotel...

    DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL! This hotel has now become social housing for the homeless, alcoholics and other druggies. I booked a double room in November 2018 for one night in January 2019. Plenty of time for the hotel to react and let me know. I arrive in the late evening only to find random strangers in flip flops and dressing gowns walking around the premises. I was terrified and actually worried something was going to happen, judging by the looks I was getting from the other “guests”. At first, I was told my booking could not be found, only to then be informed there was one, single room left in the hotel, which I could take. Being given the key, the receptionist simply told me to go upstairs and check the room to see if it is acceptable. At this point I knew there was something wrong, but entering the room confirmed my earlier worries. The whole hotel stank, with everyone smoking inside, damp everywhere with the stench being unbearable. I was told a full refund would be paid to me, but I was given no assistance or financial help for booking a new hotel room at the last minute. Authorities have been informed.

        We are staying at the Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport hotel. Taxi from the airport to hotel is £30 or else the buses run every 20 mins and are only £2.50 e/w. Only a 20 min drive from Coventry. €40 per night for a double room.

            I'd cancel and stay in one of these new Eco Green Cubes - cleaner and more comfortable.....

                      See you for some early pints around glamorous Coventry city centre on Saturday morning?

                        Sounds like a plan! Drop me a line some time after 10. I'll introduce you to any new pets I acquire the night before ...

                            Yeah, I mentioned it to mrs chips this evening - we'd both been trying to find a place and she told me she'd found a handy one with a good score on booking.com, so I said to go for it. Turns out the "good score" wasn't 5 out of 5, but 5 out of 10! A place has to be pretty crap even to go below 7 in my experience. The "free cancellation" period had expired at midnight so I've had to send through a cancellation request, but I haven't heard anything back yet.

                              I had a major row with booking.com recently. Booked something 3 months ahead, but the free cancellation period had also expired. Hope you have better luck than me!

                                That’s not the fault of booking.com.
