I was very pleased with the hotel, location, staff and amenities were all good until I checked out. Upon check out I noticed they had charged me twice for the 200 pound deposit. When I mentioned this the check out person assured me this was a mistake and would be cancelled. Three days later and still no refund for the mistaken deposit. I called to find out why it was taking a while to refund me for their mistake and I was informed I could not get a refund and would have to call back after 5 days to contest the mistake. Sounds suspiciously like a scam. I have informed my Bank and they have made a claim against them. Nice hotel but watch out for the deposit scam.
