Yes, 15% fees is high, giving you only 85% income.
But I look at it this way: I get more bookings by using booking.com, and 85% of a lot of bookings is better than 100% of a few bookings.
Do not be blackmailed by threats of bad reviews. We have competitors with a lot of very bad reviews, they still get lots of bookings.
This occasionally happens to us. Sometimes it is immediately obvious that they have made the error and we phone the guest to clarify, but often we dont know until they arrive. Usually we just take the loss.
The worst for us is family rooms with a double bed and bunks for children (children stay free) and they think 4 adults is OK. Sometimes the confirmation email says only 2 adults staying (no mention of children) We now always contact family room bookings which do not specify children's ages to make sure they are not 4 adults. ( we assume if ages are stated they are genuine, and if not we can refuse to admit them when they arrive).
