    extra--free of charge or not?

    The following is taken from an ad about a hotel. The two items in blue are marked with 'payable'. Then can we infer that all the other items are free of charge, including 'Dry cleaning service extra' and 'Beauty care'?


    Hotel Services:
    1. Newspapers available
    2. Day reception
    3. Baggage handler
    4. Baby-sitting (in hand soon)
    5. Dry cleaning service extra

    Hotel equipment:
    1. Disabled friendly
    2. Iron/Ironing board (by request)
    ...
    5. Internet access in common parts (payable)

    Leisure activities:
    1. Beauty care
    2. Outdoor swimming pool (heated)
    3. Spa (payable)

    Not a teacher.

    "Extra" means an extra charge. On a hotel bill.

    Did you think they might clean your clothes for free?

    It's best to assume that additional hotel services are going to be charged for unless they are described as free.
