We had made a internet booking Upon arrival we were told they had cancelled out booking, despite us completing all necessary documentation They had apparently been fully booked and had overbooked.

Colleagues and I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions in the last two months.

Rooms are pretty basic, no wardrobe, no complimentary water, room key that stopped working three time in four days, there is often bad smell in the corridors... But if the hotel itself should probably need one star taken off the declared 3, the...
