There is no option to prevent Google from scraping photos from another website nor to prevent photo uploads to listings. 

 

You can however load fresh photos that Google loves AND report duplicate and old photos that are no longer appropriate that were loaded from elsewhere.

 

To remove photos is a multi step process.

-Log using the email used to verify the listing
-Goto the photo gallery for each hotel via either the Knowledge Panel or Google Maps
-Click on the photos you want removed
-In the upper right of each photo is a flag that should be clicked
- This will take you to a report form which needs to be filled out

If after two weeks the photos are still present you need to contact support for their assistance.
Google has changed (actually hidden) their support options.

You can dig to get in touch with Google My Business Support. You need to:
1- log into your Google my business dashboard http://www.google.com/mybusiness
2- select support from upper left hamburger menu
3- a help screen will appear to the right
4- It used to be just a scroll down to contact us under Contact Us
5- Scroll down and select Need More Help
6- Select the specific problem - in your case Verification
7- Select I requested a postcard more than 14 days ago
8- Scroll to the bottom of the page and choose most appropriate contact method for you (some are not always available)

Thank you very much. Great Help  
There are lots of Hotels frustrated with Booking.com and Oyster.com loading hundreds of photos. 
GMB should give owners option to remove them.

Thanks, I'll also have to try this. We have 100 or so photos and links via Booking.com for another business in the area 'infecting' our page, and I'm really struggling to get them removed.
