Last night Mark Hughes made his anger clear with the Swansea Marriott hotel after their reservation was canceled due to a 'virus' despite the fact the hotel was still accepting bookings from the public. Hughes called it 'one of the poorest hotels we've stayed in.' Now the club itself has made this review official.
Southampton had to organise another hotel 35 miles away before their vital relegation decider against Swansea, a game they went on to win 1-0 anyway. However preparation was less than ideal given the hotel situation as well as on the way to the ground, the players had to walk the final section of the journey as they were told the alternative was a 25-minute wait on the bus.
With that in mind, the club decided to leave a damning review on TripAdvisor.

The review finished by clarifying they were 'not planning to return any time soon', which could well be the case given Swansea face imminent relegation as they are three points adrift of Huddersfield who also have a game in hand.
The hotel in question had actually released a statement surrounding the incident, after Saints fans began to leave negative reviews on TripAdvisor.
We were made aware late last week of a small number of associates and guests becoming ill. As per our normal procedures, we notified large group bookings in order for them to find alternative accommodations, should they choose to do so.
