Ticks all the boxes: friendly, clean, tidy. BUT... the El Greco Restaurant! We decided to dine in. Asked to see the wine list and what followed was a scene out of Prohibition Era: "we don't sell wine sir, you can bring your own."
First day in Canada: "So where can we buy some? Is there a bar:
"No the bar is closed, you can buy some at reception"
Whispered tone to reception "I believe you sell wine"
She got the key and opened the cupboard behind the desk. (okay, I might be making up the bit about the key)
I chose the $20 one: "That'll be $25.01 with tax. First day in Canada so no small change. $20 notes and $5 notes. Offered $25: "Sorry sir, we need another cent". Offered $40: "Sorry sir we don't have change"
Paid by credit card. Weird or what?
(nice hotel though - will dine out on this story for ages)More
