Albatross Drive, Fourways
booked a room for 2 nights and was specifically looking for a pool, internet access and a private bathroom. The place advertised that they have these facilities. I booked the most expensive room to include what I wanted. When I arrived, none of these amenities were to be found. They insisted that I pay for what I booked. This is false advertising and intended to mislead people. Three properties in Albatross Drive, Fourways belong to the same people. Don’t book any overnight stay in Albatross Drive! You will regret it!
