          Hi, we stayed 11-15 June (last week) and the security card deposit of 50£ per night has still not been refunded as it has been quite a few days already (we were told by reception it would be refunded instantly upon checkout). When will this occur?

          This hotel is very bad at this. They messed our bill up, twice. If you have not got your money back in a week contact them and complain. I would never stay there again.

          The most convenient way and most reliable, is to sent an email at the hotel. Normally they answer within no time.
