I have responded to your review on Booking.com and again I need to respond to your inacurate statement regarding the room keys. I explained that each room door key fits each room and the side door to the pub, allowing 24/7 access. The keys are individual to the rooms and common to the external door. Security is therefore 100%. Your... More
