British people banned from hotels

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I dont have a link on the internet but we were watching the news at 6:30 am.

In certain Hotels Englanders arent welcome anymore because the bang doors, smash everything in the room, have sex on the beach naked, and dont clean up after their mess.
They showed the beach and the hotels being covered in trash, and young people showing their butts, nipples, and private parts.
When they got too drunk they would start fights.

Now i'm a bit embarrased because im young and a brit and certainly do not behave that way.

Certain Hotels have removed the british flag and not letting any british people accomodate in their hotel. I know they have lost alot of money because they broke expensive things and disturb other customers but do you think its right?

I mean what if an elderly civilised couple wanted to go on a holiday and were banned from a hotel because of the youngsters stupidity?

Don't worry Fran, i wouldn't put you in that frame just because your a youngster

I know what you mean though, because we've got one of them in the office here, or should i say did have because he's grew up a lot!.

Were these places in question in Faleraki and Aya Napa?, because their known for it.

They should start what weve started over in the UK right now. Anyone caught being drunk, or aggresive in the street are picked up and thrown in the cells for the night, along with a hefty fine.

I can't say I blame them really! If people acted on our beaches the way they act in some of these greek and spanish resorts they would expect to get thrown in jail, but for some reason they assume that because it's a different country they can behave in any manner they wish and face no consequences. I live in a quiet seaside town, and the thought of groups of drunken yobs shouting and throwing up in my town is awful! God knows how the Spanish/Greeks put up with it for so long!

I realise that not all younger people are like this, but as always it's the unruley minority that give the rest a bad name.

hmm, i dont know which city it was, i was half asleep ben was laughing his butt off because he saw a young guy flop it out in the camera.

I know scottish people are banned from a hotel in germany because they smashed the tv's and ripped the curtains (these were my mums friends back in her time) But i dont understand why they do it?

dont they have to pay for it in the end?

I guess i will have to speak german or italian when i go to spain or greece so they let me in

Not too sure Fran?. I've always stayed away from where the "wild" places are because although i love to party on an evening when i'm abroad such as Greece, i still like to have some relaxing time without any heavy metal playing around the pool or on the beach.

I'll never forget when my then boyfriend and i went to Crete 4 years ago. We stayed at a place called Makrialos which was only small but lovely!.

There was one bloke there with his girlfriend who really should have been in the likes of Faleraki because he was a loud mouthed, beer guzzler who we found out had poked fun at the other holiday makers in our resort which made them all feel uneasy

He tried his luck with my boyfriend but picked on the wrong person that night, because he was an expert in Judo and Tai Kwon Doe and floored him in one fell swoop!.

He had 3 days of his holiday left and never bothered anyone anymore and was as quiet as a mouse, in fact he never drank after that!.

It doesn't just happen 'abroad' but in our green and pleasant land. There have been some grumblings about the behaviour of some of the people who went to the Oceanfest in North Devon a couple of weeks ago. One 14 yr old girl passed out in the sea from too much to drink. Her friends were (I believe) treated for alcoholic poisoning. Now a lot of the moaners are probably Victor Meldrew types who moan about everything that the 'young folk' do, but I agree with them that there was too much alcohol consumed. It seems to be the common factor in cases of trouble - that people drink too much. I'd be interested to know why it is that some Brits don't know when to stop drinking. There does seem to be a binge-drinking culture here, and we take it abroad. Why is this? I wish it would stop, it's embarrassing for the rest of us.

To be honest I'd rather have a quiet sight seeing holiday than a boozy one. I think its far to dangerous now days to get blind drunk when abroad. Not only do you run the risk of sexaul assualt, girls as well as boys go out now looking for fights.

I dont think the hokidays makwers are entirley to blame though. the resorts cant fill the towns up with bars that never close and cheap, limitless alcohol and not expect people to take advantage of it.

It is pathetic when many are judged by the actions of a few, but unfortunately, such is the way of the world.

English have had the reputation for years (centuries?) of manifesting boorish behaviour, and I really have no idea why this is.

Some of it, I am sure, is percieved, while some is, regrettably and obviously, real.

I recall having to work with British military shortly after WW-II, and it became odorifically obvious very quickly that many of them were not on speaking terms with soap, and this wasn't just the "other ranks" either, many of them had "pips" on their shoulders.

I recall probably the most embarassing moment of my life was in helping an American Destroyer tie up alongside a Brit ship, and the skipper of the Can announced over the PA system that the Brit had better "button up" because the Can was going to hose the Brit down before tying up alongside.

I could only imagine the shame of the British Captain and having to suffer such an indignity, but his ship was dirty, filthy, actually is a better word, the Tars taking BM's at any convienient location on deck.

It could be that a lot of "kicking up of heels" is a result of lack of personal freedoms and a welfare state that does not encourage personal responsibility, therefore encouraging boorish activities and slovenly personal habits.

While there have been many English of notable stature, Bobby Browning and Maggie Thatcher come to mind, there are many more who are responsible for the "broad-brush" reputation, and actions such as the maintenance of a wasteful and flamboyant monarchy and the blatant lack of respect shown by the elected officials to their cohorts in Parliament only encourages such stereotypical categorizations by the civilized world.

Would that there were more like John Smiley, and perhaps it is apropos of the problem that it takes fiction to create an admirable Englishman.

That I have stated the above opinions and memories in no way denies that I fully support England and recognize a valuable alliance between our two nations, for after all, our interests are very similar.

This doesn't sound all that different from the "spring breaks" of USA students in Florida and anyplace else that has a warm climate and beach.

I just remembered - Mardi Gras has it's share, too. Ever watch "COPS" when they film the antics at Mardi Gras? One thinks the only phrase used there is "Show us your (insert body part)!".

I am British... and I am sometimes so ashamed of the behaviour of other Britains when abroad. When I was 19 I went to Ibiza - NEVER AGAIN

The place was nearly full of lots of English (and others, but mainly English) getting drunk, stripping, having sex on the beech, asking if I wanted drugs, swearing all the time etc etc etc. I am not innocent but I was totally disgusted by some ppls actions.

Now when I go on holiday, I choose places that are quiet, with some nightlife but I would never go to a holiday resort like Ibiza again. I don't blame some hotels for banning some ppl really. They deserve it, these lads and ladettes (cos it's not always just the blokes) disgust me....

Jan, you make a real good point. It does sound like Spring Break and Mardi Gras! Perhaps the difference is that American youth who do this type of crap generally stay in the US to do it, but because of the geography of Europe it is easier for British youth to go abroad.
post #16 of 19
I agree, its really no different but in Europe, you can skip over to Spain and party there instead of staying home.

Some hotels in my city (an hour's north of the border) have banned young Americans on Spring Break, as they come up to take advantage of our 18 year old drinking age, when theirs is 21. They smash up the hotel rooms, run down hallways and generally go nutty.

I also heard that certain hotel rooms demand a parent's credit card or one in good standing in advance so they can tack the amount onto the bill.

I was always under the impression that the British were more refined and stiff! I sure was wrong!! They sound like American college students on Spring Break, as someone mentioned earlier. Drunken youth will be drunken youth I suppose. I've always wanted to go to Cancun, but I'm afraid to because I can't stand that sort of set. I worry that I'd end up down there during someone's spring break and have multitudes of 20 year olds throwing up all over the place while flashing their boobs. Wait, that sort of sounds like the dorms I used to live in

You mustn't have met any lager louts out on the town then!
I was once almost pinned in the midst of a pub brawl in a small England town once!

And yes, Cancun is bad for drunken late teens puking on your shoes.

Just step fast!
