Scottish hotel boss offers free night to anyone who can identify non-paying couple

A boss at a luxury hotel in Scotland is offering a free two-night stay to anyone who can identify a couple who left the establishment without paying after racking up an £800 bill over Valentine's weekend.

The pair enjoyed fine wine, food, and flowers at Knock Castle Hotel & Spa in Crieff, Perthshire, before leaving without showing the money.

And now hotel boss Jason Henderson has launched an online appeal to catch the couple, offering a free stay to anyone who can positively identify them.

The man and woman arrived on Friday and were due to check out on Monday but left a day early.

Jason has now posted a CCTV image of the pair on Facebook in a post offering the reward.



Speaking to the Daily Record, Jason said: "They stayed at the hotel and used false card details and fake info.

"They left without paying their bill in a silver Audi A3."

He added: "Free two-night stay for anyone who can be the first to ID these people."

Police Scotland are investigating the incident. A spokesman told the Mail Online Travel: "We can confirm we are looking into a report of fraud at Knock Castle Hotel and Spa in Crieff.

"The incident occurred between 6.30pm and 9am on February 13/14.

"The man is about 5ft 6ins, of thin build, aged in his late 20s and was wearing a blue jacket. The woman is approximately 5ft 8ins and of medium build."

Anyone who has any information are urged to call Police Scotland on 101.
