Obviously we were delighted the Albany could be there for you; as we have said many times before hotel prices are highly transparent and sensitive to changes in demand. It is a dynamic market and one that determines the price. Every hotel we know is...More

Questions & Answers

In response to the Manager - The only reason you did not reinstate my booking within 20 minutes of me realising my error, was pure malice. There was absolutely no other reason, as it was your own personal decision irrespective of T&C's - this is the sort of person any potential clients should know they could be dealing with. I wasn't asking for just a refund - you know I asked to simply stay in the rooms and you said no unless we paid again !! Yes there are sour grapes as you took £220 of my money and I cannot afford to pay more than that so you ruined our weekend. You could have kept our money and given us our rooms, but no. In response to your comment about not knowing how you can accidentally cancel - well unless you are saying I am a liar, then you can ! And a 'pop up' box came up with bold green letters saying FREE - which you can confirm with the booking agent. Again a false accusation. Funnily enough I'm not the only one to complain on these reviews about your money grabbing ways.
