          With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
          white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's

          Are you still charging for wifi and the use of the pool and gym? I read some comments about joining a frequent guest program and those charges would be waived. Have reservations for July 2017 but if everything is extra, I am wondering if staying there is such a good idea.
