    Hi, I stayed at your hotel on Saturday the 7th March. I booked your hotel for 3 people. When we got to the room there was only 2 cups for tea and only 2 glasses in the bathroom? On arrival we also asked the reception staff if they could bring us up 3 glasses to our room for drinks and they said it was cost €5 ?? €5 to bring up 3 glasses ?
