when checking in we were informed that the hotel required a further security deposit of £50 per person per night. We had not seen this anywhere when booking the room.This was a surprise and did put a damper on the stay. The room was described as having a atrium view but all we could see was the roof of the atrium. the room it's self was excellent and the bed very comfortable.
