Southampton have poked fun at the hotel that cancelled their stay ahead of the meeting with Swansea City by providing a one-star review of their services.

The club were forced to move to the Vale Resort hotel near Cardiff after the Swansea Marriott reportedly told them they could not honour their booking due to the outbreak of a virus.

Manager Mark Hughes was scathing of the venue, which continued to take public bookings after Saints relocated, and later suggested mischievous Swansea fans could have been behind the confusion.

Hotel general manager Michael Downie defended the decision, which did not ultimately cost the visitors, as they claimed a 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium to put them on the brink of Premier League survival.

Saints have had the last laugh, too, by sharing a screenshot of their review of the Marriott on TripAdvisor.

The one-star assessment, titled 'Last-minute cancellation' was tweeted from the club's official account but not posted on the review website.

"Had been due to stay here for an extremely important business trip, only to have our reservation cancelled 24 hours before arrival, due to apparent virus outbreak," the review read.

"Very disappointing, as other guests' bookings seemed to be unaffected.

"The inconvenience meant we had to make alternative arrangements for our group at short notice. Ended up switching to the Vale Resort. Not an ideal location for our needs – much longer trip to get to our meeting – but great staff and facilities there and would highly recommend.

"Fortunately, the experience didn't sour our trip. Business meeting was extremely productive!

"Not planning to return any time soon."

Everton and Tottenham linked with Southampton star .
Everton have been linked with a move for Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina this summer. According to a report from French news outlet Foot Mercato, the Toffees are among a host of Premier League clubs to have expressed an interest in signing Lemina. The Gabonese international signed for Southampton last summer in a deal rumoured to be worth £18 million from Juventus. Lemina has enjoyed a positive maiden season in English football on an individual level but has struggled with a mix of inconsistency and niggling injuries throughout. Southampton booked their place in the Premier League next season by staying up on the final day of the season on Sunday, meaning that they’ll surely be keen to keep hold of their prized assets. Lemina signed a long-term deal at St Mary’s upon his arrival but has been linked with a move away for some while now, with clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Everton now named as potential destinations by French reports.
