I was booking a hotel (Anniversary thing ) & found out, by going direct I saved. Initially i contacted Laterooms.com a hotel agency, who charges 15% for hotels booked through them (parasites). Be advised to book direct,with the guest accomodation, as the poor hotel/ B&B( who has nothing to do with the bad service from 'Laterooms') gets the review rap !! Best avoid the agents, go direct to the B&B, google the area you wish with 'B&B' etc & save More ammo for me
