Booked for 4 nights over the bank holiday as they had a family room available and did not want to be cramped in a double. Was called by Wendy to check if we were a family and asked if I didn't mind taking the double room as she had a family wanting to stay. Out of politeness I said yes,... More

My room was a double, but was... More
