At the end of my stay, I paid the bill by debit card, the amount was instantly taken from my account and a bill paid was given at the desk. I then went to withdraw funds from a banklink machine only to be told that in the account I had plenty of money but had "insufficient funds."
After speaking to my bank they informed me that Macdonald Portal hotel had put a block on my account amounting to near 3 times the bill that I had already paid! On contacting the hotel asking why this had been done without informing me "no" satisfactory answer was given and that the block would not be taken off for eight days approx. I wrote a letter for an explanation this was ignored. SO BEWARE PAYING A HOTEL BILL BY DEBIT CARD you may be without funds for over a week, which can be embarrasing.More
