6/10 Good

The room I was checked into was not the one which was shown on the booking. I did the booking online, chose the room which I liked, view it online and paid for it. However when I got to the place I was shown a different room from the one I chose and I was told I'm supposed to pay almost double what I had paid online to get the room I viewed and chose online. Because it was late I ended paying and took the room. However the TV was not working either. I was also also not impressed with the breakfast. Just 3slices of bread, fried eggs and 1 cup of coffee only for R65.00. Simple things like a tomatoe was not available or at least some sources, nothing. I was really disappointed, I didn't expect that, especially because I was with my family.
