Gay couple turned away from B&B in Cookham

The couple drove back home after being refused to stay in the B&B
A gay couple were turned away from a Berkshire guest house by the owner who said it was "against her convictions" for two men to share a bed.

Michael Black and John Morgan, from Brampton, Cambridgeshire, had booked a double room at the Swiss B&B, Terry's Lane, in Cookham, for Friday night.

When they arrived Susanne Wilkinson refused to let them stay.

She admitted she did turn the couple away because it was against her policy to accommodate same sex couples.


She said if we'd told her in advance she would have told us not to come

Michael Black
The couple have now reported the matter to Thames Valley Police.

Under the Equality Act 2006 it is illegal to discriminate against people on the grounds of sexual orientation.

I seem to recall that a similar case happened a few years ago. I may be a tad cynical but I wonder how much this couple will try to get in damages for hurt feelings. I would also not be surprised if the 'couple' knew of the land lady's views before booking.

It's sometimes hard to believe that we live in the 21st Century. Why should their sexuality even be a topic of conversation, let alone a reason to refuse them a room?

Perhaps she'd be better off having a ban on sodomy instead. A nice, non-sexuality-specific ban on sodomy.

Good find Stacker.....is that in your fav's?
Nah the view from the hotel isnt very go... I mean certainly not.

It does however show that they do have their own hotels that are out of bounds for straight people but I bet the police dont get many complaints because straight people don't want to stay there rather than throwing a hissy fit.

Funny that.

It's her house, she isnt a hotel and has a right to refuse anyone I would have thought.

I wonder what hurt more, having to find another hotel or the realisation that not everyone likes fudge packers?

Nothing on the website.
Looks like a nice place. I'd stay there, safe in the knowledge that the previous occupants hadn't been ******* or feltching each other!

Then a ;ot of campsites have rules against same sex groups but I imagine thT IS more to do with drunken louts. Why don't they just post it on the website and people know not to go.
Joking aside what business is it of anybody what other people do on their own time?

Most places ask for the names of the guests. I guessing they did not tell her it was Adam and Joe for the King Size four poster.
But money is money so she should have just manned up and took one for the team.

I can't see the argument here - if it was my B&B and it turns out that "John is leader of the Lib Dem group on Huntingdon Town Council." I'd have turned them away as well.

We had a young lad living under our roof for about a year. He was the architypal, full on, mincing gay boy sort. Apart from that he was OK. It was our decision to give him a room. It should be the decision of the woman who owns the B+B who sleeps under her roof, and no-one elses. Good luck to her.

Probably nobodies business but all they needed to do was add on the website 'No same sex couples' easy enough.
I think they misread the point about "No Irons" thinking they should bring their own :oops:

Good on the owners, they have an obligation to the other residents and after all it is their home. Besides I thought couples in the beginning were Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Gay boys ought to stop getting hurt because someone does not like their lurid practices, in not so many years from now the next crowd to have their fellings hurt are the paedophiles, yep thats right, some other disgusting lot getting the hump. They ought to get a life and quit complaining that not all of society likes the gay practice.
