"A Guest Wanted Revenge On Her Boyfriend" Say Holiday Inn To Visitors Woken By 4am Fire Alarm
Revenge is sweet...
Guests at the Holiday Inn in MediaCity reportedly got a surprise this morning when they came down to breakfast.
A notice has been shared online which it's said was on display apologising for a 4am fire alarm - but putting the blame for the intrusion firmly on a female guest.
The notice explained: "Please accept our sincere apologies for the fire alarm during the night.
"A guest wanted revenge on her boyfriend!"
The letter which was posted was signed off with thanks from Siobhan Thomasson, who works as a general manager at the MediaCity venue owned by Peel Hotels.
The letter was posted by tweeter Jason Horton, who works as Head of BBC South and of Sport England.
He wrote: "A 4am evacuation of the @HolidayInn Media City Salford. I think we all need to know what the boyfriend has done...."
Jason told Lovin Manchester: "The letter was posted in the lifts and in the restaurant this morning."
He added that there had been a ruckus in the night, saying: "Yeah, sleep disturbed."
On the subject of any possible culprits, he said: "Nobody obviously sheepish at brekkie but lots of grumpy faces."
Lovin Manchester asked Holiday Innabout the incident, and general manager Siobhan Thomasson told us:
"At approximately 4am this morning the hotel fire alarm was set off by a guest and the evacuation process was initiated.
"Staff quickly established that the alarm was not related to an emergency situation, so guests who had started to evacuate the hotel were advised they could return to their rooms. No emergency services were called to the hotel.
"We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."
