Why do we require a credit card for Internet reservations?
By securing your online reservation with a credit card, you are eligible for our Reservations Guarantee. If your reservation cannot be honored, the host hotel will provide a room at, and transportation to, another convenient and comparable hotel, and pay for telephone calls to notify family of the lodging change. The host hotel will also pay the full cost of the first night's lodging rate, plus tax. Any advance deposit will be refunded.

So yes, you do need a credit card by the looks of it.

The text about the Benefit of using a credit card doesn't seem to be the best answer from a big hot chain, why can't they offer same benefit for people paying with a debit card, I would look at the angle are they wanting a card they can max out with unexpected debits for damage or no show cancellation charges etc ??

may be ways round it if booking a package we used Superbreaks I think for Legoland and Holidaying and we used debit card as have no credit cards

I didn't think about it that way

It just grinded my gears as we also don't own credit cards either
