On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.
We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.
Since the rise of websites like TripAdvisor, hotels, B&Bs (bed and breakfasts), hostels and guesthouses have had to face public criticism. TripAdvisor has been around for 14 years, but in this time, it has forged a fraught relationship with the hospitality industry. This was brought to the fore yesterday when it was revealed that a Blackpool hotel had charged a couple £100 after they posted a critical review on the site (see the topic on British seaside winter holidays).
Have you ever written a review for Trip Advisor? Or do you take any notice of reviews other people have written about places before you book?
It’s just the latest in a string of incidents and disputes that TripAdvisor has found itself in.http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2014/nov/19/tripadvisor-hotels-fine-bad-reviews-lawsuits?CMP=EMCNEWEML6619I2
