Vejle Center Hotel

This blog piece should bring some wind to the sails of even the most cynical traveller.

I was meant to be staying at the Vejle Center Hotel in Velje, Denmark today. But my plane from Stornoway was delayed by 4 hours and 20 minutes because of a faulty set of stairs (Logan Air for you), so I missed my connecting flights from Edinburgh and Amsterdam to Denmark. I cancelled my hotel reservation at the hotel from Stornoway Airport, fully expecting the hotel to charge me for the late cancellation – however the wonderful Jesper at the Vejle Center Hotel has informed me that they will not be charging me. I think this is excellent and I think we all should frequent the Vejle Center Hotel.
