Not all holidays go off without a hitch!
Whether your hotel room isn’t up to scratch or you find yourself having to send a meal back at a restaurant, it’s important to speak up – we’ve all been there.Hotel staff are usually more than happy to help you find a solution – provided your request is within reason. Unfortunately, some holidaymakers have been known to make outrageous demands, or even downright bizarre complaints!
Television troubles. One guest trekked down to reception in the middle of the night to complain he was unable to watch television. However, the issue wasn’t that the TV was broken – he complained that when he was lying on his bed flat, he couldn’t see the wall mounted screen because his FEET were in the way! The best part? He even brought a photo along as proof.
Breakfast in bed woes. While hotel staff are no strangers to weird breakfast requests , but one guest’s complaint had nothing to do with the food. After ordering breakfast in, they were left bemused as to the etiquette of eating in a hotel room, so they called up reception and, well, check out the transcript below…Guest: “Hi, we’ve just had our breakfast in bed delivered to the room. Is it okay if we eat it on the chair by the desk, and not actually on the bed?” Receptionist: “Erm, yes, of course you can. You could even eat it in the bathroom if you’d like to!” Guest: “Right. Well that should have been made clear to us.”
The one with the live chicken. One woman was furious after being refused a room reservation. It may sound a bit harsh, but staff had a legitimate reason – during her previous stay, she had snuck a LIVE CHICKEN into her bedroom. And it doesn’t stop here. She ordered in room service and allowed it to peck and generally make a mess of the room, causing hundreds of dollars in damage. So yeah, in this case the hotel was happy to recommend she take her custom, and choice of roommate, elsewhere.
