    Things you should never tolerate on holiday

    When it comes to going on holiday, you may have to accept that nothing is perfect, and any holiday will inevitably have one or two small things go wrong. When it comes to the hotel you are staying in, there are certain things that you may have to accept and just weigh up against the overall experience. However, other things you may come across should not be ignored and you should make a complaint, demand to be moved, or move yourself from the room or the hotel. Here are some of the things which you should not tolerate in a hotel on holiday.

    • Faulty electrics. Not only is this dangerous, but faulty electrics could actually be fatal in some cases. If you are in a room where you can see wires sticking out, or have trouble with electrics going on and off or sparking, you should speak to reception and demand to be moved. If the problem is throughout the hotel then you should think about moving yourself.
    • Dirt and grime. It is not helpful to have standards which are too high if you are staying in a budget hotel, and you should worn fabrics and so on. What you should never accept is a room which is actually dirty, as this can cause illness. Ask for your room to be changed or cleaned as soon as possible.
    • Rooms which do not lock properly. If you are staying in a resort and find that none of the rooms lock properly then it is better to leave and book somewhere else than risk it. Having a room that is easy to get into puts you at risk of theft and, more worryingly, attack if you are in the room and the door does not lock fully behind you.
    • Bad food hygiene. If you think that a hotel is bad with food hygiene then you do not necessarily need to leave, just avoid the food. However, you should still report this and make a complaint as you risk being around other people with food poisoning, which can still ruin your holiday.
