How everyone has seen this and spreads the word to never book with these racists
Was just gonna post that , i can see where Pontins are coming from as lubo stated if you've never experienced it first hand then don't be too quick to condemn it ,there law unto themselves and respect nobody barr themselvesTry living down south where your holidays away with your kids are ruined time and again by travellers who, fight, shout at and threaten other guests. Push families and kids out the way who have been queuing for rides for over and hour. Threaten staff members who try to intervene. Threaten guests to move from tables when they are sitting down for meals. Spend all night drinking and shouting when you're trying to get your kids to sleep. I can completey understand why they have tried to make their resort better for other guests. Maybe they've gone about it the wrong way but it's not as simple as it looks at 1st sight.
Sorry but not everyone with an Irish surname is a traveller and not all travellers have an Irish surnameWas just gonna post that , i can see where Pontins are coming from as lubo stated if you've never experienced it first hand then don't be too quick to condemn it ,there law unto themselves and respect nobody barr themselves
Pontins made a massive fk up in the way this was leaked and while some families might think thank fk ,the travellers will be thinking lets get booked up and show these fkrs
Hotels/ Country houses do the same thing to block traveller weddings the travellers spend huge amounts of money cash never a problem , but some hotels just see it as not worth the hassle and block the bookings

Sometimes you are dammed if you do and dammed if don’t there is always gonna be some bugger upset these days no matter what they doAbsolutely correct. But the reason they set up their rule was due to the high number of Irish travellers that were causing trouble. I can only imagine that Pontins were losing a huge amount of cash through refunds, damaged items and unpaid bills. And speaking of my own experience here, losing out on future guests. They came up with a way to try stop this. OK its not the best way but show me the person out there who can think of the best way of dealing with this sort of thing and I'll show you a genius. What's the alternative??
Never said they did
if your going by pontins then believe me they're not the only one's who do it ,i worked in the hospitality trade 30 yrs ago large hotel chains have the same sort of policy
Am sure you father in law doesn't refuse jobs based on people's surnamesMy father in law owns a carpet fitting shop. He has refused to fit carpets on several occasions for travellers, mainly due to the fact he subs out the work to local carpet fitters who refuse point blank to go onto sites and also because he has lost thousands and thousands of pounds due to not being paid after the job have been complete when he used to do the jobs on his own....and the people ripping him off weren't always strangers. It was guys he knew and spoke to. But they have no respect for anyone and just refused to pay....what could my father in law do. Call the police?? He would find a burnt wreck where his van used to be if he done that.
100% he does. Traveller names are well known down here, and not because they help old ladies cross the road and volunteer at the local old folks home. It's easy to criticise when you haven't experienced it.Am sure you father in law doesn't refuse jobs based on people's surnames
