The additional taxes, luxury taxes are not made clear total wise by booking. Com so be prepared to pay at least over a quarter again on your "total" when checking out. This fault lies with booking.com.
Also, if you are unwell and order a simple meal such as plain spagetti be prepared to pay the same as a complete pasta meal from the menu. Unlike most countries Ive travelled to, when you may really simplify your order and its charge is reduced accordingly - they are unwavering here and seem happy that your plain bowl of spagetti has cost you NZ $30 odd.
Great super friendly helpful staff, lovely surroundings and delicious food at both the Indian and Chinese restaurants.
The smiley warm waiter at Jade was our highlight at Claridges.
