It says the hotel 'called the police' they got so many

ticked-off calls. And some threats. I'd bloody well hope so.
A hotel that refused an injured soldier a room, forcing him to spend the night in his car, was backed into issuing a grovelling apology yesterday after receiving a barrage of abusive phone calls.

The Metro Hotel, in Woking, Surrey, called the police as its phone lines were flooded with angry and threatening calls from the public.
And why was he refused a room?
The attack on the switchboards came after it emerged that Corporal Tomos Stringer, 24, had been told that it was company policy not to accept members of the Armed Forces.

A soldier since the age of 16 and veteran of multiple tours in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, Corporal Stringer had travelled to Surrey to help with funeral preparations for a friend killed in action.

The miserable worms have apologized, etc., and claimed the receptionist had made a mistake. Uh huh. And would somebody inform me as to how she'd have made that 'mistake'?

Bullcrap. The bastards made a decision to crap on their troops, and now they're paying for it.

The desk clerk made a serious mistake interpreting the company policy. The large print said, "refuse service to all military personnel". The fine print immediately after that said, "unless the refusal comes to the attention of the news media."
The clerk messed up, don'cha know.

How can we find out if the hotel chain is owned by British Muslims?
