The Broadway Hotel in Blackpool has certainly come in for its share of criticism over the years. Well, its owners apparently came up with a novel way to cut down on critical online reviews; charge the offender an extra 100 pounds!

If you're going to Blackpool for the convention, read this story first: [url]http://goo.gl/4njJYo[/url].

(The hotel has since rescinded the policy after negative publicity, but a journo from the Guardian went to stay for a night subsequently. Her review can be found at http://goo.gl/oJnu38.

The news article went viral on a variety of online forums, and people began posting horrible reviews on Tripadvisor. What a horrible way to conduct business. Glad I didn't book this hotel for Blackpool 2015.
