A spokesman from the Thistle Hotel Group has told ITV News that they are investigating claims that a receptionist denied a gay couple access to a double room at a London hotel.
From our initial investigations it appears that the couple booked through an online booking system which didn't work properly and so when they arrived at the hotel there were no double rooms available. We are very sorry if the couple feel they have been badly treated and we are now looking into the situation.
Having spoken to Mr Hurley we understand that the couple were not to upset that there were no double rooms available, but rather with the manner in which this information was conveyed. We have offered them a free night in one of our hotels but they have refused this offer. Thistle Hotels does not tolerate homophobic behaviour and will investigate this matter thoroughly.
