Popular website Reddit has opened a thread in which hotel employees are revealing some pretty unappetising secrets about their workplaces.
News.com.au published an article with just some of the comments that popped up in the thread, which might make you rethink your decision the next time you're considering a five-star stay!
Here's a taste:
- “The remotes for the TV are rarely cleaned.”
- 'Mattresses WILL be stained, with a lot of stuff. There's no way we could buy a new mattress every time someone bleeds on it, or spills coffee on it, or urinates on it. It wouldn't be practical. So we sponge them down and dry them with hair dryers, or flip them over when it's really bad."
- "Do not use the ice bucket without a liner. It may have been used as a puke receptacle."
- “Check the seals on the things in the minibar. I once had a guest who had drunk the whiskey and then peed in the bottle, closed it, and put it back. I've also seen candy three months past the expiry date."
