Page 12 - ... cost. But it is always worth asking in advance, because there are some very good deals to be had, especially over two- and three-day stays. Above all, check the price first. Sometimes prices go up after we have gone to press. Sometimes there is a seasonal or other variation from the printed version. Rooms Under this heading we indicate the number and type of room - and whether the rooms have baths (usually with shower or shower attachment as well) or just showers. Facilities Under facilities...
