Thankyou for your reply. I was under the impression that small claims track would be the way to go here so thankyou for confirming that for me.
However, you haven't answered the part of my question as follows:
"This incident left me in an emotionally distressed state, do I have any grounds for bringing a claim for compensation against the hotel for this?"
This is the part I'm most interested in.
I'm sorry it does not clarify.
I understand I have grounds for claim for compensation due to breach of contract for the cost of the alternative accommodation and travel etc.
But on top of that additionally incurred expense. Do I have ground for claiming additional compensation due to the stress / emotional distress at the uncertainty of being homeless for the night.
Or is my claim limited to my actual loss (i.e. cost of additional accommodation / travel)
