          Hi, I notice that this hotel charges a deposit for each day of your stay ( according to the search I am making). Can anyone tell me how this needs to be paid? Cash or credit card? Or can I use a debit card? Was it repaid at the end of the stay? I doubt we will cause any damage but I don't have a credit card and don't especially want to have lots of foreign cash returned to me on the last day. Thanks in advance
