The exposed data could allow the matching of hotel bookings with home addresses.
Information security consultant Scott Helme, who described the breach as "appalling", told the BBC that repeated emails and phone calls to HotelStayUK had been ignored.
However, managing director Chris Orrell said he was unaware of the issue.
"No-one's passed on any information to me," he said.
