First things first. Top quality hotel, beautiful spa/pool, fantastic well cooked, fresh food, spotless spacious rooms, modern bathrooms. The staff from enquiry to reception to porters to breakfast waiters to check-out were without exception brilliantly helpful and courteous. All you could wish for... But why, why, why have all that quality and air of real class then charge a fee to pay by credit card??!
I don't enjoy paying for the privelege of paying by my method of choice. When my independent corner shop and pretty much every shop on the high street (not to mention all other hotels I can bring to mind) shoulders whatever costs that incurs, its disappointing that a company this size cannot.
