A South African couple couldn't find the hotel they had booked in Eastbourne - because they were on the wrong side of the world.
Michael and Sunette Adendorff booked a room in the £90-a-night Majestic Hotel which promised "splendid views" of the Sussex seaside town's pier.
However, the only trouble was that they were in Eastbourne, New Zealand, which doesn't even have a hotel, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Mr and Mrs Adendorff thought something was wrong with their hire car's GPS as they drove around in circles in the Wellington suburb.
When they pulled into the local chemist's shop to ask directions, they were shocked to discover where they had gone wrong.
Shop assistant Linda Burke said: "They just walked in and asked me where Royal Parade was, with the Majestic Hotel.
"I said: Oh no, there's no hotel here. I looked at it and said: That's in the UK, that's in England."
