Morning people, following on from my post yesterday about a nice restaurant in Bodrum I'd like to share with you quite an unpleasant situation just in case you ever fancy visiting this place. As I said yesterday the lovely manageress in our hotel called the above while I was standing in front of her and made our reservation for last night for our anniversary,they said they would collect us for our 9pm reservation, we were waiting in reception from 8.30, by 9.20 nobody had showed so we spoke to the manageress and she phoned to see what was going on, a long conversation between them followed that resulted in them telling her that no such reservation had been made, nobody had arranged for us to be picked up and they wouldn't take a booking for us. I felt really bad for the manageress,she was so upset as she felt she had let us down, we told her not to worry and went off to Salamakis and had a lovely meal, had kind of gone off the idea of Bodrum by then. We weren't impressed by the behaviour of Elvino anyway but the manageress came and saw us this morning and told us they had then phoned her back three times last night and were really rude and abusive to her claiming she had never made the reservation, I stood in front of her and saw her take the phone number from the screen and call them and heard the whole conversation. I feel so bad for her that she has had to put up with that after just trying to do something nice for us and, let's face it, pass custom on to them. I have already put a strongly worded review on TA, awaiting publication but just wanted people on here to know how badly they have behaved.
We will go into Bodrum tomorrow and eat at one of the other recommended restaurants and, with luck, have a better experience!
