that is very interesting, how can you tell genuine visitors from fakes?

I agree with OP. There are a couple of reviews for both hotels that are somewhat suspicious and they are obvious.

Hi there....

Yes, i also agree with the OP, and this has been going on with Kani Lanka reviews for sometime now, whilst i don't doubt that the reviewers have stayed at that hotel, it is "quite likely" that thier reviews have been, hmmm how can we put it politely , co-erced ??..

Some recent ones don't even mention the hotel facilities, but purely about a certain restaurant and tour guide !, i did in fact report a couple recently, and they have been removed..

It is quite likely that a turf war is still ongoing yes..

Regards

Dave

thank you for replies having stayed there 3 times i just wish that both parties could realise they could both earn more money by working together and it would improve atmosphere outside of hotel for visitors

Annie....

I agree, and these now too reported to TA, with a recommendation that a closer eye is paid to Kani Lanka reviews in future....., it is obvious that some are either written by Red Lobster themselves are are "coaxing" others to do so..

The written language gives them away also !

Hi Dave

I've just read the top review for Kani Lanka and was wondering where Gatlinburg was..Is it worth a trip?
