A couple have been shamed for complaining about getting kicked out of a hotel for ‘arguing too loud’.

The pair took to TripAdvisor to slam the Southcliff Hotel in Folkestone, Kent, saying they would ‘rather sleep on a bench’ than return to the £55-a-night budget guest house.

But the hotel owner hit back saying they should be ‘too ashamed to even dare make a comment’ after scaring other guests with their early-hours spat.

The woman, named as Hannah, said in her review: ‘They walked straight into our room without knocking and decided to kick us out for talking too loudly with absolutely no warning.

‘We were thrown out onto the street at 2am knowing we’re not local and without a care in the world.

‘Then I was refused a refund for the remaining two nights and had to go back the next day and argue for a refund.

‘Absolute joke of a place – would rather sleep on a bench than pay £55 a night to stay in this dive.’

But owner Patrick Dubus said: ‘Dear Hannah, you should be ashamed to even dare make a comment.

‘Believe me our night porter would not have evicted both of you if you and your partner had not been having a loud argument.

‘He was five floors away when other guests asked us to do something about the noise.

‘In fact the guests were worried for your safety.’

The Victorian hotel, which in other reviews was branded ‘disgusting’ and ‘outdated’, is currently on sale for £999,000
