    "<p>I arrived to be told the booking I had made had been cancelled because a family wanted the accommodation.</p><p>I had payed a deposit and received confirmation of the booking as well as an email from the owner looking forward to my visit so had a valid contract.</p><p>On arrival I was told Safarinow had emailed me to cancel the booking and had contacted me by telephone. This was not the case. I am now asked to give my opinion of my stay! What stay? Shocking behavior. I do not rate Courtlands.</p>"
