Went for a romantic dinner with my wife. Very impressed with everything. Been coming to this area several times a year for many years but somehow had never been before. Everything was top quality , had a look at the recently refurbished rooms and thought they were 5 star quality. In fact the whole place is oozing 5 star quality....

Hmm. I'm sorry to hear this. Sunday is always a crazy busy day and, not that this is an excuse, more of a possible reason, your bill has been, perhaps, mixed up with another one.
