My girlfriend and I had a romantic long weekend at a hotel

Customer Question

My girlfriend and I had a romantic long weekend at a hotel and stayed three days to celebrate her birthday. On the final days stay we made love and she had a powerful orgasm, meaning that she gushed a little on the bed. The hotel called me later that day to say that they were going to charge us £300 (!) As they had to replace the mattress.
Now (1) The wet area wasn't that large so we feel that they are exaggerating the damage but obviously can't prove that now (2) It isn't technically urine so can they charge us for it? (3) The cost seems exorbitant.
Understandably my girlfriend is embarrassed and horrified, expecially with the aggressive stance that the hotel have taken. Do we need to pay the £300 or are they chancing their arm? If things go legal can we counter claim damages from them because of the embarrassment? Please help!

It is with Best Western. Under the 'Behaviour' section it states that :
When you book with us , you accept responsibility for any damage or loss caused by you or any member of your party.I genuinely don't feel that there was a lot of fluid on the bed and that they are charging a disproportionate level of damages even if the mattress was wet.
