The company’s website remains online featuring properties to rent in Brighton.Several of these customers have contacted the BBC to complain that they had paid significant sums to book accommodation for holidays last week but had not been warned that the company was about to cease trading.HeartbrokenOne woman, Jennie Nash, says she is ‘heartbroken’ after plans to celebrate her combined 30th birthday and engagement in Brighton were dashed after the company took money from her last week for a booking.No details of an administrator have been provided, and a sign has appeared on its high street branch saying: “It is with great regret that due to the challenging economic conditions Brighton Holiday Homes has ceased trading with immediate effect.”The company has not missed any of its Companies House filing deadlines and has been trading since 2008 after being set up by director Neil Stonehill at an office in the popular Kemptown area of the city. Staff left the office for the last time two days ago, neighbouring businesses have reported.Brighton holiday homes May 30, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
