Rude and useless

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
Location: Good location, with lots of other accommodation options nearby (thankfully!).
1. They had no record of my wotif booking when I arrived (I had the email confirmation, so not my error). 2. They wouldn't let me check in anyway because I didn't have my passport. This fact was not evident ANYWHERE in the booking process. When I mentioned this, I was told haughtily by the boy at reception that well I agreed to it with the terms and conditions (which I'm fairly confident he's never read, and agreeing to terms and conditions when booking online - really?). No "sorry" and "we should look in to that so this doesn't happen again".
