Well I just came back from holidays and it was pretty weird this time. Me and my family went to queensland for 2 weeks. We have been there before and its been really nice, hot, sunny and everything goes fine. This time was different, we flew there and show up at the hotel(we have stayed there before, it was good) and go to get our key for our room. We booked 6 months ago and wanted number 23(its one of the best) but when we went to get the key. They tell us the rooms not ready and the owers are completly remaking it and it would be finished in 3 days. Fine so we have to stay in a worse unit for 3 days, no problem...but monday comes and we go up to see what number 23's like and its not even FINISHED. I mean no where near finished. :uhm: So because the unit we were moved into had people coming into it that day, we had to move again to a shit unit. And in that one the air-con didn't even work(and you really need it there, it gets very hot). So we finally got sick of it and wanted to go somewhere else. My dad rings up the manager to say where leaving and the manager goes insane, he was screaming his heap off and bagging out my dad and my mum. When my dad went down to finish the bill the guy looked like he was ready to a full on punch up fight. Just because we wanted to leave. :mad: After that crap though it was alright, we went to a better place around the corner, we had a great view and everything was better. Still it rained most of the time(as the news said a 1 in 100 year storm) but the beach and pool were still great. :)
Ahh well, shit happens. Atleast you're still here, that's what matters. Hope you had a good time.
No offense mate but.. "Waaaghhh, Waaaaghh Cry :bawl: " Some people don't even have a roof covering them man, remember that next time you're on holiday ;) I agree with the other part though. Man, that guy is a wanker for going off at your Dad like that. lol you shoulda pwned the guy.
haha...too bad. But...if you had booked like 6 months ago...doesnt that give you the right to sue them since you didnt get your room?!
Well, it's like Blitzkrieg said.. Shit happens. If you had a very nice holiday and you're going to the same place as you've been, the chance is big that the holiday won't be as good as the previous time. Simply because you expect it to be as the previous time.
And what a jerk, the hotel manager... You pay lots of money for a hotel, ten you won't get your room.. You are angry ofcourse and want to leave, then some wiseguy manager is beeing a pain in the butt.
Well.. Hope the rest of your holiday was good.
Yeah, don't let your holiday be spoiled by some drawbacks.
Wanna go Double Dutch?

Heh, don't let yourself be screw around with. You are th customer so you should get what you applied and payed for. If I would get a far worse room without valid reason I would pack my bags and leave for an other location. Either that manager was just looking for extra profit or a very arrogant bastard (both perhaps).
I hope you still enjoyed the rest of your vacation, any pictures you are willing to show?
'Aurora-[NZ']No offense mate but.. "Waaaghhh, Waaaaghh Cry :bawl: "
I didn't say it was ruined.;) It was good fun after we changed hotels.
any pictures you are willing to show?
I got a few of a massive lightning storm so ill try and stick them up. other than that I didn't really take many this time. I just hope one of the shots has some fork lightning in it, I did about 10 shots to try and get one. It was pretty weird, a lot of the time the storm was there, there was a TON of lightning but no thunder, then all of a sudden there would be 5 massive claps of thunder and about 10 mins of rain then it turns to blue sky.:p
46 and 2, are just ahead of me

hey, nice to see you back in action. I didn't know you left, or i forgot, one of the two. :p
Seems like it all worked out in the end, i've had some crappy hotels before. Its funny because for me, bad vacations always seem to get worse.
Glad to hear that it all turned out better, but did you get a refund from that hotel that you booked 6 months in advance?
Doesn't sound like the greatest vacation, but I'm sure it's better than where I am now. :p
