  1. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but hopefully it is okay. I'm currently in the process of writing a consumer advice/promotional article for a company and I would really like to include a quote or two from professional consumer advice people to give it more credibility. The article is about how to choose the right contractor for your requirements and will offer advice about finding GAS SAFE registered engineers etc. etc. At the end of the article, there will be a short paragraph promoting the company - they put people in touch with approved, qualified contractors for
  2. Hello I wonder if anyone can help me regarding a problem I have with the new PS3 Slim? Here's the situation: I traded my old 60gb PS3 in for the new PS3 Slim at GAME. When I got home, I noticed that the PS3 Slim was much noisier than my old 60gb - it makes a constant humming noise that is very annoying, especially if I am watching a film as it is clearly audible over the film's soundtrack. I can't stand watching blurays on it because of that and even with games, the noise is very irritating - it is like a car horn going off constantly in the distance. I went back to GAME and th
  3. Thanks for all the help, guys. We've come to an agreement with the company now, so hopefully everything is going to be okay.
  4. The link didn't work. Might be a wrap problem or something. Try again: [EDIT] It is on the cottages4u.co.uk website, Peak District region, and it is Crow Hill Lodge in Marsden. I think it is the second or third page in.
  5. Here's the link: [EDIT] The place we are staying in is the small building at the front. When we booked it, the photo only showed the small building and didn't reveal the fact that the owner's property is so close. It is going to be like staying in their granny flat! Good idea about the printed brochure. I will look into it.
  6. I'll put a link up to it later on - at work now so tricky.
  7. Yes, but I can only do a screen capture of how the ad is now, not how it was before. I wish I had printed out the old ad now. Would a screen cap of it as it is now be of any use?
  8. Unfortunately, no - we don't have proof. Kind of relying on them admitting it today when they can speak to the web developers. The original photo was a close-up of the single-storey cottage, but the new photo is shot a bit further back and shows the owner's house is right next to it. We would never have booked it had it been like that in the first place as we both want privacy when we are away. And it definitely stated private drive originally but now says shared. Also, most of the other ads on the site state Owner Lives on Site but the ad for the cottage we have hired doesn't. Is it unre
  9. Hello all, first time poster. Could someone advise me on my rights in this situation: We booked a week in a cottage in Derbyshire a few weeks ago through Cottages4U. At the time we booked it, the advert for the cottage said it had its own private drive and the photo showed a small but perfectly adequate cottage. However, since then, the ad has changed to say that it is a shared drive and the photo has also changed to a more zoomed out one where it is revealed that the owner's property is right next to the cottage - just meters away. Both of these factors would have put us off renting
