No tempations for Kylie Minogue

Malmaison ManchesterLike to be greeted with a bottle of bubbly when you arrive at a hotel?   Or maybe a few chocolates?   Not Kylie.   Apparently she has requested that all chocolate, crisps and booze be removed from her £450-a-night Moulin Rouge suite at the Malmaison in Manchester. She’s also said to have booked the rooms either side of the suite so that they remain empty.  

I have stayed at this hotel a few times and, on my first visit, booked a standard double room.   When we entered, the room clearly wasn’t ready – the bed wasn’t made, the bins were full, etc. so I reported back to reception.   They apologised profusely and we were swiftly upgraded to a top-floor suite with fabulous views over the city.   If only my room could be not ready more often…

  1. A friend went to a hotel somewhere in London and suffered the same, but he was not upgraded, he was given the room for free! (he had to wait for it to be cleaned, though). It´s good to know that some hotels behave in a polite way and realize of their mistakes. Good news run, but bad news fly…
