          3rd time at the hotel had a great stay. Accommodation is neat, clean and location is good. Food was delicious. Staff friendly EXEPT stay away from the bar. The staff is not very competent, rude and can do with some training in hospitality.

          Winchester mansions are looking for a photocopy of my passport and credit card (front and back) via email, before I arrive, even though I made the hotel booking through an online website. Is this normal? I don't feel safe sending such personal information over email, hence the reason I made the booking through a reputable agent.
