We chose this hotel based on other Trip Advisor remarks & ratings. We would agree that all the lovely things said about the position and decor of the hotel are absolutely correct.
We booked a 5 night stay, based on a special promotion, lake facing suite for R3000 plus taxes and this is what we expected to pay. On arrival the hotel informed us our room was upgraded for two nights then we would have to move to a different room. They did not tell us that the upgrade would cost R5,337.13 plus taxes per night- a significant difference to the quoted price we had accepted. After two days we packed our bags expecting to move and were told we could keep the room for the rest of our stay.
The suite they gave us was indeed beautiful - however when we book and agree on a price - that is what we expect to pay. We didn't expect or ask for an upgrade - this has come from management.
The unexpected and unnegotiated new amount has strained our budget and has soured our stay at the hotel.
