1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I booked this hotel for work via at a rate of 55 GBP per night. When i checked in i queried how i would pay as i was leaving early for the ferry and was told my card would be charged. The manager queried where id got my rates from as they werent the usual rates. When i returned home i found that id been charged 75GBP per night for my stay. This amounts to nothing less than premeditated theft. The hotel staff have refused to issue a refund. Needless to say i'm taking this further but id say avoid thid place like the plague
