1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service
I was charged twice for the stay !!
We stayed at Highfield Mews for one night in April and paid fully with my credit card upon check-in. 16 days later I found that my credit card was charged again for another $162. I rang the motel twice asking the owner to check and refund me but he refused to do anything and insisted that he didn't take the money. I have to notify my booking agent and also ask my bank to send me a letter of payment before he agree to refund me. Obviously the second credit card payment was charged by the motel without my consent. And the owner twice refused to check on his account or to rectify the problem!
