Welcome to the forum, Oncebitten. TripAdvisor staff reads these threads, but rarely take a moment to respond or act on comments. Almost all assistance comes from your fellow members.

The management photo is a "Photo from around the world", a constant annoyance to me. I don't know where they come from, but inaccuracies abound. Some users are still willing to correct a "Photo from the around the world" by clicking the "report as inappropriate" link at the bottom right of the offending photo.

I think they come from Google Images. Even when I've no idea which is the correct location for these mis-placed photos, I can often find the original photo source by searching the name on Google Images and can therefore usually identify the correct location. Once reported, TripAdvisor will just remove it fairly quickly but won't relocate the photo so it doesn't matter if you don't know the correct location.

This issue comes up regularly on both this forum and the TripAdvisor Support forum. See this topic from a couple of weeks ago:

Just saw a real beaut of a "Photo from around the world", a little taco joint portrayed as if it had a big, carpeted banquet room with tables set up for a formal dinner with chairs in white, formal covers.

Add the beer Photo from around the world that is attached to a coffee house. Irresponsible.
