I booked accommodation for the company's project engineer. This is his furious feedback on his return NO room was ready when we wanted to check in at 2pm. We were told to wait in the lounge as the room wasn't ready - no refreshments of any sort were offered. After 40 minutes of waiting, I went to investigate and found...
