Castle View Guest House

On booking double room with double bed on web page, was told on arriving at hotel that I needed to pay extra £50.00 on top of my booking, as a second person in room was not included on my booking very unusual as PRICE SHOULD BE FOR THE ROOM the booking did not ask how many in this room Parking is a nightmare as only place is some way away, if you can find one and is £2.80 per hour on a meter

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Park outside city limits and get a bus back to center can save much money this way
