TOWIE star slams Manchester’s new 5-star boutique


Manchester’s newest five-star boutique has taken an online slating after TOWIE star Mario Falcone took to Twitter to voice his disappointment after a stay at the recently launched Hotel Gotham.

The hotel, which opened in April after much anticipation, welcomed the reality TV star and his girlfriend this week, but failed to impress after Falcone tweeted: ‘Very disappointed with my stay @HotelGotham last night. One of the worst hotels I have stayed in.’

However Hotel Gotham was quick to respond to rectify the problem, tweeting directly to Falcone just an hour after the initial comment was posted.
