Good 6,0
Disappointing experience
The overall stay was good, but I had a very bad experience when checking out. It was about 2 hours to my flight, and at checkout the lady overcharged me by about 4000 rand! I would have, under normal circumstances understood and requested for a refund, but I was shocked that she didn’t even seem surprised. The worst part was that after being refunded, the only apology I got was from an assistant manager, after having stayed at the hotel for almost 5 nights. It’s very disappointing that the front office staff treat guests with little to no respect. Except for the lady on duty that night at the reception, and the assistant general manager on duty the night of my checkout, all other staff are great though, especially the doorman and supper staff. But disappointed as I would have liked to stay in this hotel during my monthly trips to Cape Town.
