Peak season for hotel usage
It was Christams season and perhaps we chose a wrong time to come as the whole hotel lobby were packed with people who were having dinner at the restaurant, not hotel guests. we were looking forward to a quiet stay but the minute we walk out of our room into the lobby we were greeted with merry making diners.
