    [TEXT REMOVED BY FORUM TEAM] strikes again with autumn spa suite in woodford green at best western hotel. Recently closed.

    What is even worse is I sent a bundle to the Head of Press department and CEO of Best Western Hotels and was in dialogue with the Head of Press and they said that it was down to the individual hotel to decide what they do with free space and who they allow on board. They didnt seem bothered about their brand being associated to the toxic company of Katies.

    I also have a list of bookings and confirmation and payments which I have sent to HMRC as they have not submitted no accounts for their limited company and it is at the proposal to strike off stage for not submitting accounts. She is no doubt hoping that HMRC will tell companies house they have no interest in it so it is dissolved. Also sent them the bank account details and sort codes where payments have gone to.

    She stated that she sold the company to two other women but she is still the owner. I have a few more surprises or her too which I dont want to mention publicly

    ''Grumpy But Gorgeous" Pamper Party scam continues to take place (16 June 2016)
    They are now operating under the website grumpybutgorgeous.com

    Here is my experience (as per my review on TrustPilot and Google Reviews) - not surprisingly they are trying to get these removed:

    Do not trust this business or hand over money under any circumstances. We booked them to do a pamper party for my daughters 8th birthday and paid them a 50% deposit. We also paid extra for the convenience of party bags. The party was booked for today (11 June 2016). Late yesterday afternoon my wife receives a phone call informing her that she will not be getting party bags (despite the fact that we had already paid for them). This caused unnecessary and unexpected stress as we had to run around the night before trying to sort out more party bags. Little did we know that this was just the beginning of one of the most unprofessional and distressing experiences a parent (and child) could have. Despite being informed that two therapists would attend the party (for 12 girls) only one arrives at the venue. One therapist (artiste) can clearly not pamper 12 girls on her own so we immediately became a little suspicious. 30 minutes before the party was due to begin (prior to which I saw her smoking a leisurely cigarette in her car) the ‘grumpy but gorgeous' representative came in and informed us that the party was not going ahead as the venue was ‘unsuitable’. The reasons given for this were ‘parking’ and the fact that she had to climb a short flight of stairs (around 15 stairs altogether). She also mumbled something about insufficient ‘plug points’. Her reasons were absolutely ludicrous. We had hired first floor rooms in the Windlesham church building which based in a small village. The parking could not have been easier or more convenient. There was ample parking within 25 meters of the front door. Furthermore, she was literally able to drive and even park her car within 2 meters the front door for the purposes of loading/unloading any equipment (which my wife and I also offered to do for her) if she had wanted to. There were also at least 14 plug points in the venue. It soon became clear that she had never intended to do the party (she even had a male passenger waiting for her in her car). The ‘Grumpy but Gorgeous Pamper Party’ did not go ahead and we were all left extremely distressed by the whole incident. Fortunately, a group of mums jumped into action. While one of the mothers entertained the kids ‘Brownies’ style the others rushed off and purchased pampering products and equipment. The kids ended up being pampered ‘mummy style’ and giving each other beauty treatments. They had a ball doing it. We are so grateful to the mothers that helped out. Thank you so much. It is nice to know that the world is still full of such genuine, kind and wonderful people.
    We need to ensure that no other parents or children fall victim to this unscrupulous business.

    UPDATE: The more I dig around the more information I find. I have now also ascertained the 'Grumpy But Gorgeous' appeared on RIP OFF BRITAIN (series 6 Episode 8) in 2014. There is also a Facebook group called 'Grumpy but Gorgeous Girls Pamper Parties Scam' of people who have been scammed over the past few years.

    Grumpy but Gorgeous This is a scam
    WARNING!!!! WARNING!!! This company is. Scam
    Do not trust these people my friend booked and paid for her daughters 11th birthday.

    THEY NEVER SHOWED UP. CALLED 20 TIMES and no one picked up. No apologies. Nothing.

    WHO DOES THIS??? Still waiting for a refund. THEIR REVIEWS ARE FAKE.

    When we checked other reviews it seems they have done this several times before there is a thread on mumsnet about this company's unscrupulous manner.. They have also been featured on rip-off Britain series 6 episode 8. I believe all the positive post have been posted by themselves. They operate from essentially a PO Box. I've yet to receive a refund although I've been told they are processing a refund 🤥🤥 Please don't make the same mistake
