Went to book a night away for my parent's christmas pressie and came upon a very cheap price.

Wanted to add dinner also but wouldn't let me.
I called reservations who informed me that this was an incorrect price and would be taken offline by midnight tonight.
However they must honour it otherwise it is false advertising!!!

My advice? Book now!

not really a deal is it £156 for a night




A night at Cameron House normally costs £300 a night. That's how much a 5 star hotel overlooking Loch Lomond sets you back. But then by the looks of it you're not used to luxury!
Travel Lodges are obviously your height of pleasure!

I can get £159 a night there with breakfast from laterooms.com without even breaking a sweat.

And its prices like that which are largely responsible for the ongoing strangulation of the Scottish tourist industry.

We really must stop ripping off visitors with £300 hotel rooms.

Brilliant. A work of sheer genius!!!:thumbsup:

Just a point of order on this - a misprice is not 'false advertising' and does not have to be honoured by any retailer until they accept your payment in full for the product or service. Even then, companies will more than likely have a clause in their T&Cs that allows them to amend misprices in their favour. I wish people would educate themselves more about consumer rights/how the global economy works/how oil prices feed through to petrol prices - we could then avoid the majority of pointless debates on HUKD!

Correct, however being aware of a misprice and not doing anything about it is false advertising.

Just went through selecting a double room with breakfast on the 3rd Dec = £139 ??

Stayed there overnight a few years back. Staff were throughly obnoxious and didn't give a toss - duty manager was about as much use as a chocolate teapot and after several phone calls to vent my disatisfaction got half my money back and vowed I'd never set foot in the place again.
Nice location though

Yeah, it's cheaper midweek.

I would prefer to get a Travelodge room in the area and drive to the loch.

Bear in mind it's also not peak season and they are possibly struggling to fill the rooms - doesn't exactly sound like a misprice to me. The golf courses will probably be closed too which takes away another reason to go for many people.

Possibly the worst misprice I have ever seen!

It's certainly not going to hit the hotel in the pockets if they do honour this one :giggle:

The Mrs and daughter stayed in the Waldorf Astoria in Park Avenue, New York last week (one of the top hotels in NY) and it cost them about £80 a night total (without brekkie of course). Most hotels 'normal' tariff (i.e. the one that companies/reps pay) and the 'other' tariff - the one that most of us pay (usually half the rrp) are a mile apart.

Ok, I had a quick browse through ]the offers page and found something called a 'Winter Mid-week Break' using booking code LWO. However, it comes up for the night of the 6th December as £129 (b&b) which is a weekend night by my reckoning. Similarly, works for the 20th December for £129 (b&b).

Still, even at £129 for b&b, it's not the world's hottest deal (I've paid less than half this for awesome 5* London hotels using Priceline).
