  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst customer service and ripping off clients

    Well it’s not much to say when you arrive at the hotel and front staff told you that they don’t care about third party booking , you should book direct. We have booked 2 rooms, sea view with balcony and that’s what we paid for to so when we get there been told we are fully booked and should have mentioned about the Balcony when we made our booking at but we told them it’s the room we booked and paid for so why do we need to make request for it and simple reply was they don’t care about third parties booking like or Expedia should book us directly, while we talking to one of the girl another two staff behind her said , people comes they are nasty asking for view this and that, WTH we paid for all this not asking for free and you are getting paid for your job so just shut your mouth and do your job! Atleast after 30 mins of argue Manager gave us our keys with Balcony sea view room but guess sea view was from ground floor with big trees at the front so it was just waist of money paying for sea view but thanks to representing who understands our situation and Happy to give $50 credit for our next holidays.

    Good location, dated hotel.

    Location was really nice and so were the staff. The hotel is pretty dated now with the rooms could really do with a renovation. Walls and floors are paper thin, could hear kids flying down the hallway and stomping about on the floor above.

    Ocean side room had the view of a brick wall. Sounds like Sumo wrestling going on upstairs but that is not the hotel’s fault.

    Great food, friendly staff.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has so much potential to be a luxurious resort however it was very run down and outdated. The food was impeccable though, huge complements to the chef.

    The location of this property is fantastic and the rooms are spacious. Staff are always very accommodating. Just a bit dated. Bathroom in particular, with shallow bath. Great hot water, though, so perfect travel stop.

    Lovely surroundings, very friendly staff, quite a bit of a trek to some of the rooms & cushions on the bed were more comfortable than the pillows
