Grandad abandons ‘hotel from hell’ within hours as Turkey holiday goes terribly wrong

A grandad-of-three endured a night in a Turkish “hotel from hell” before he walked out in disgust.

Martin Willmott, 64, was looking forward to the eight-day holiday in Marmaris, having spotted a great deal in a brochure. On arrival, dad-of-two Martin claims he found fresh blood, urine, broken tiles and dodgy electrics in his hotel room.




The caterer was unable to stomach the problems and so walked out, just two hours after arriving. He has since complained – but claims package provider Galaxy Holidays are fobbing him off, prompting him to go directly to the CEO.

The travel firm has now claimed Martin did not tell staff of the issues before leaving and that he has since been offered compensation.

Martin, from Daventry, Northants, claims he found fresh blood and urine on the bedsheets and mattress, as well as electric plugs in the shower cubicle.

He said: “There was blood on the sheets. The mattress protector had what looked like fresh blood on it and the mattress underneath filthy. There were stains that looked like urine. It was filthy and made me itch just being in there.

“It was the hotel from hell. I was abandoned in Turkey and they refused to do anything about it – no partial refund, nothing. They wouldn’t acknowledge genuine complaint.”
