Having arrived after a full day at work, I didn't react as quickly as I should have at being asked not only for my credit card, but my drivers licence as well, to check-in. The receptionist disappeared behind a screen where I discovered (the next day) she had photocopied the lot! When I realised what had occurred, apart from hurriedly shifting some money, I questioned a different receptionist as to why? I was told that it was because I might not be the debit card owner, that the licence was needed for verification. This doesn't answer why it should be photocopied however. Given that the full amount for the three night stay had already been withdrawn from my account some 5 days before check-in (that is not industry standard surely?) it's heavy handed. It is a poor way to start and I felt very vulnerable thereafter.
Apart from that, the room was fine and the man in the cafe below makes good coffee.
