avoiding stuffy and inflexible service at nice european resorts

Jump to last reply

stayed at many wonderful resorts in europe and were shocked by rude and defensive comments by staff members at hotel du lac in riva la garda. beautiful hotel, but guests do not deserve to ne treated as inhospitable as we did, particularly after spending a very hefty sum for a high end room. when politely requesting a simple coffee/tea unit, we were given such grief and made to feel that we were somehow being too demanding. Before being outright rude to us, they first claimed, very defensively and inhospitable, that, well no hotel in Italy does such a thing as coffee or tea in the room. I told them we just came from Hotel Accademia in Verona and they had it without even asking for it. They went on to say, rudely and defensively, well in Italy, no one drinks tea or coffee after ten, the time when their breakfast service ends. after pleading with them more and explaining that it is quite commonplace to have this in most good hotels, they exasperatedly responded, that well the could send up a water heater with personally delivered instructions (like we don't know how to properly operate one) and that as far as the tea bags or coffee - you're on your own - you can buy them in town. what a beautiful resort wasted on lame service !
