My friend and I had booked to spend two nights in Corriemar, on 20th & 21st April 2014. When I called to make the reservation I spoke to Mr Billy Russell who was pleasant and charming, he was helpful, chatty and was able to share information about ferries to the islands and his warm and friendly nature made us even keener to visit Oban and stay in this Guest House.
Sadly, on 19th April I experienced a family bereavement, which was as a result of a tragic accident at my home in Ireland. Shortly after I heard this news and made arrangements for travel home, I contacted the telephone number listed on the website for Corriemar. Mrs Sandra Russell answered and when I explained the circumstances, and apologized for having to cancel, Mrs Russell merely stated "there is a £10 charge'. Her manner was rude and dismissive and while I have no problem paying the £10 charge, I found her attitude to be cold.
It is most unfortunate that this has possibly left the hosts with a vacant room over a holiday weekend, however the circumstances were completely outwith my control and I did apologize for this inconvenience.
