Having made a large block booking in January 2016 in plenty of time for a September 2016 wedding the wedding party accommodation should have been secure. However when they arrived they were told that the rooms were not available and that they would would have to stay at the Springfield Hotel which was more expensive and an additional five miles away. The wedding party also had a house in Corfe so that all the family could be together. As a result the family were completely separated and incurred huge extra costs.
This is appalling behaviour with no consideration for the customer and complete abuse of a firm booking. They were only told that their rooms were unavailable when they arrived. The message is Do Not Book at the Bankes Arms in Corfe.
