Worlds poshest hotel in Dubai has not a drop to drink for guests!October 4th, 2008 - 2:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 4 (ANI): The worlds poshest new hotel that has stunning water slides and aquariums has been labelled Fawlty Towers by Brits after the places taps ran dry.
Visitors, who flocked to be among the first to stay at Dubais 750million pounds Atlantis, claimed to be left with dry taps for endless hours even at the bar.
Owing to the flawed plumbing, the holidaymakers were left with dead flushes and showers, while some got stuck in the elevators.
Meanwhile, protests hit the bar when it ran out of all its beer and wine.
If the Beckhams stay here theyll be disappointed, the Sun quoted a fuming mother, who paid an exorbitant 800 pounds a night for a suit, as saying.
Another guest, John Walton, who saved every penny for a year to treat his family for a weeks stay, said: My wife was in tears.
A Leicester retail manager even claimed that he and his family were woken by the housekeeping who busted in at midnight to clean their carpets.
John, 45, holidaying with his friends lashed: Ive had better service at a Travelodge. Its farcical here. What kind of hotel runs out of water?
Its like Fawlty Towers but at least with Basils hotel you werent paying through the nose to stay.
Interestingly, the hotel is located on the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island, where the Beckhams have a villa. (ANI)
