carl says:hi doug stayed with you a few times and all your rooms are none smoking which is not a real problem a its law however just stayed at the GRAND BURSTIN HOTEL IN FOLKESTONE and the clearly state in reception that they are excempt from this law and allow guest to smoke in there rooms how is this possible is it choice?
Our Reply:Hya Carl
Yes...its down to the individual hotel's choice. The law states that if we allocate a room as "smoking allowed" then we MUST allocate ALL rooms within the same "fire zone" as smoking allowed - this means that every room behind the nearest fire door must be of the same type.
Bizarre....I know...but there you have it.
This would mean that one COMPLETE corridor of rooms would all be "smoking allowed" and, as you can imagine, the whole corridor would stink. Larger places, like the Grand Burstin perhaps, have more bedrooms and to allocate one of their floors as "smoking available" would not affect them so much. To be honest, even though I am a smoker, I prefer the Canasta as smoke free. It did used to "hum" a bit in the sun lounge after a busy Saturday night when we did allow smoking in the sun lounge.
I guess we'll have to give up
Cough....splutter

carl (fred) and sam says:Hi all had another great stay with you all. Once again you made it the perfect weekend. Dan is a star polite and pleasent and as for christine just excellant cant do enough for you. Friday night karaoke with swampy was so funny she just could'nt take the repaet off the songs but then again if you charge her 35.00 per hour plus vat then i don't blame her ha ha.
Saturday karaoke was even more entertaining if you know what i mean hee hee all that entertainment on a budget of a few coppers lol.
we will definatly be back for another great stay at the canasta anywhere else just would'nt be the same.
Keep up the good work it really does make staying with you all enjoyable.
Carl & Sam (FRED)
Our Reply:Hey up Carl and Sam Yes - it was quite entertaining on the Saturday - you should have seen the Licensing oOfficer on the Sunday night (now that WAS fun). Letters have been sent and we're eagerly awaiting the response...may even get a few web pages out of this!!
Did he REALLY call me an aŁ$%hole ??? :)))) LOL
Nice to see you both again..
