Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

At first we were accommodated in a room with moldy corner and no AC! When we complained at the reception we were promptly moved to a different room. From that I concluded the staff knew about the issue very well and they were just trying if we speak up, unbelievably unprofessional! The second room was okay, however it still wasnt perfectly clean, the drain in the shower wasnt working properly also half of the shower door was missing and there were no curtains over the window.
Good breakfast with possibility to sit on a lovely terrace. Friendly staff

Everyone will agree wedding thank you notes are important. Usually they’re sent if the couple received presents, and to thank the guests for joining them for the celebration. But, not everyone will agree about how to send them, in these modern times. As we’ve already mentioned on the subject of modern wedding dilemmas, invitations sent by email are slowly becoming the norm, so it’s only a matter of time before digital takes over completely, and written thank you notes will be considered a quaint vintage notion.
The good news is, wedding thank you cards are actually pretty simple to tackle, no matter what way you’re sending them – the difficulty only increases with the number of guests. So, here’s our complete how-to and etiquette guide to wedding thank yous.
Click here to go to WOL’s wedding stationery directory for some of the best wedding thank you card designs in Ireland!
Someone once said it’s ok to wait up to a year to send thank you cards… and for some reason, this is still believed by many brides today. US etiquette guru Emily Post says you should take no longer than 3 months from the wedding date, while Debretts says no longer than one month. Apply common sense here. If you’ve had a huge lavish wedding and received hundreds of presents then everyone will understand you have a huge task to tackle. If your wedding was small and you received a few gifts or opted for cash, waiting months to say thank you won’t look great.

How far in advance have you received it? If the gift comes just a few days before the wedding, you can wait and do it with the rest of the cards. If it comes well before the wedding (for example, when someone is unable to attend and sends a gift right after receiving your invitation) then it’s appropriate to send the thank you card right away – so it’s best to stock up on a few a bit early.
You should already have some kind of a record or a spreadsheet of all the people to whom you sent invitations. Save a second copy clearly marked ‘wedding thank you cards’ and adjust accordingly as people confirm or decline your invitation. Anytime someone sends you a gift, be sure to mark it down and a brief description.
Appoint a person to be in charge of this. They will need access to the aforementioned jazzy spreadsheet and, of course, will need to be invited to your wedding. This is an ideal role to delegate, as you have too much to do already. This person will have to make notes on what gift was brought by whom.

Because wedding thank you cards should be personalised. You’re already personalising them with names, you just need to add the gift details. Scroll below for some wording examples you can use.
We’re going to say YES, but it won’t work for everyone. Obviously, you won’t be able to email people who don’t have an email address, or for whom you don’t already have an email address. People who gave expensive gifts or large monetary contributions – they should get a proper thank you note too. Any older generations from both your families (even if they email). Anyone who went through the trouble of sending you a gift by post. It’s ok to email anyone who doesn’t know what life was like before the internet, and anyone who needs to have their smartphone surgically removed from their hands. Make sure to put some effort into this email, to avoid it looking like a convenient short-cut. It should be just like a thank you card, except digital. It should be personalised and not sent to a group.
Even if your invitations cost a pretty penny, it doesn’t mean you have to spend the same on wedding thank you cards. If you’re shopping for stationery now, be sure to ask if all-inclusive deals are available, so you can save money. Look on Etsy, eBay, Hobbycraft and art supply stores. Ask your photographer how much it would cost to print a single image multiple times, then incorporate it into a simple card. Or if you’re getting your pictures on a CD, arrange the printing yourself. There are many ways you can pay less for thank you cards. Do put aside money for stamps, and if you don’t think emails are too impersonal, be sure to send a few of those (see above) to cut the postage costs.
Above, wedding thank you cards by The Parlour Press
Some couples like to send a token with a note – fridge magnets are very popular, for example or some couples add in a photograph of the guest(s) from the day. You may want to reconsider this idea if guests already took home favours from your wedding, as they already have a token to remind them of the occasion. However, if you have the time, the inclination and the money to send something extra, go right ahead. Just remember, you still need to include some words of thanks.
Yes they can be, but they still need to be personalised. If you leave blanks for names it’ll look like a very obvious shortcut, and like your thanks weren’t personalised much. Typing the name on every single card is time consuming, but still quicker than writing out each card by hand. You should also sign each card by hand.
Perhaps you might like to mention what the cash is being spent on. We discussed the question of whether it’s ever ok to ask for cash as a wedding present – and one thing guests really care about is contributing to your future life together, or a honeymoon. This is why putting the money towards paying off the wedding is a delicate matter. If you really did use all the money, or most of the money, towards paying off the wedding, should you own up to it? It’s a grey area that’s best decided according to your own opinion. Whatever you decide, you should still send a thank you card, and acknowledge the gift.

Here are some helpful ways to word your wedding thank you cards. Start all cards with ‘Dear…. ‘ and end according to the degree of familiarity you have with the person. You can say things like ‘all our love’, ‘lots of hugs’, ‘lots of love’, ‘hugs and kisses’ to people you’re very close to. For something more formal, you can say ‘sincerely’, ‘best’, ‘with gratitude’, or ‘yours sincerely’.
