Bad start but good end

First time I used Travel Republic and booked a nice 4* hotel in the lakes only 2 days before I was meant to go. Late on Friday night I had an email with a change of hotel asking me to confirm acceptance or cancel no one to call only email to deal with.
Having spent many hours looking for the right hotel in the right place I was not impressed but we had been offered rooms at another hotel not far away and of as good or better quality but more remote.
We had a good time in the end but a phone call instead of an email would have been preferable it was only by chance, as i was bidding on ebay, that I checked my emails late on Friday otherwise I would have ended up not seeing that email until it was too late. Even a text telling me to check my email, voicemail even.
Summary: not impressed
