          I am planning to stay for 2 nights in summer (between Christmas and New Year), but it's almost half the price in winter. I get that the time I'm looking at is absolute peak holiday season - but is it going to be that much better in summer than winter? I'm interested to hear from anyone who's stayed both summer AND winter - how it compares.
