The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be bunking down in Whitehorse tonight at the Coast High Country Inn, and although it’s one of the finer hotels in the Yukon it’s not exactly Kensington Palace.
This point is being made loud and clear by the British media, with numerous articles complaining about how the royal couple will be forced to slum it in a three-star hotel during their visit to Whitehorse while visiting Canada’s West Coast.
“Worst stay I’ve ever had,” writes The Sun, quoting a review on TripAdvisor and writing that “Kate and Wills opt for three-star hotel where visitors have complained of yellow water and tiny rooms.”
Meanwhile, the International Business Times describes the hotel as “cramped and dated,” while the Daily Mail gripes that the couple will be downgraded to the best room in the “downmarket hotel,” a “premium jacuzzi king” with such amenities as a microwave, mini fridge, hairdryer and ironing board.
Despite the media furor, a source claims the couple are “delighted” with the accommodation on their “date night” trip to Whitehorse, with children Prince George and Princess Charlotte remaining in Victoria in the care of their nannies.
