Refused a service because I am gay

The Court of Appeal has upheld the County Court’s decision confirming that Christian Hotel Owners Mr & Mrs Bull discriminated against Civil Partners Messrs Preddy & Hall by denying them a double bed.

In accordance with their religious belief, Mr & Mrs Bull operated a strict policy permitting only married couples to share double beds at their hotel. As Messrs Preddy & Hall were registered Civil Partners, the Court of Appeal found that the only reason that they were treated differently was because they were gay.

The Court held that, regardless of religious beliefs, owners have to run their business in accordance with the law, which includes an obligation not to discriminate against customers based on their sexual orientation.

If you have been subjected to similar treatment on grounds of your sexual orientation you may have a claim for discrimination. Please contact us for further information.
