Went on-line; booked; paid; arrived; asked for smoking room; went up; came down and said they had given me a non-smoking room. Got the first intimation that they had changed their policy!
About 1/3rd. of the adult population smoke – I want an hotel room so that I can relax, read, smoke my pipe and go to sleep – so why do some businesses decide to exclude us? it did cost them - I spent not another penny in the Hotel!
Much to be said in its favour for the price, but I shan’t be going back. You other smokers be warned!
