Kristina, it looks like we'll miss each other.

Thanks for seeing my side of the story regarding this web site. I didn't complain about the 3%. I gave them my credit card even after I became aware of that. But the breakfast, that would be another $45 per night for the two of us so yes, it is a big deal. Maybe Walter doesn't think so and that's fine, he can pay it.

I'm glad you posted this Laurie - I was about to book the same deal and also have an email from this website that says the price (I was quoted the same as you) includes breakfast.

This is for our honeymoon - and as I am horrendously busy marking exam papers and trying to organise a wedding and reception in Thailand and a reception in the UK at the same time, doubtless I would have missed this detail once I had made the decision to pay the money. So thank you!

Just for a matter of interest I checked several agents websites to see if breakfast was included in the rates. In all but a couple of cases breakfast was included up to March 31. After that date, until October 31 (low season) the rates dropped but no breakfast was included. The drop in price hardly offsets the cost of a breakfast for 2.

So if you can get a rate of 190 ++ with breakfast for a deluxe rooom by dealing directly with the hotel, as Kristina did, you are laughing.

Scotters, indeed I am. And, the Pen is giving me a grand deluxe room for the price. I guess the lesson is, always contact the hotel before dealing with other sites.
