A hotel that I had passed many times and always fancied staying. I saw an offer on the internet and made snap decision to go for 1 night. After booking I was sent an e mail stating there would be a twelve and a half percent discretionary charge on food and drinks and 7% on the room which I have never heard of before, a bit OTT and I objected to it.
Lovely greeting on arrival, unfortunately not given the room booked, far too small for a twin, given another room, but not the lovely Nidderdale room from the photos on the internet.
Had a lovely massage at the spa,had a refreshing walk in beautiful scenery and enjoyed sitting by the log fire.The meal at the Burlington restaurant was very good, quite a different experience!
A pleasant stay in a beautiful place marred by hassle over the room,the bill (discretionary s/c added) and to top the lot, an e-mail from the manager stating he was 'saddened' that l was not happy with the room- the room that wasn't booked, too small and had not been cleaned properly!!!
