No airport shuttle included!
Staff was not friendly. Confused our reservations with the day before, thinking we had been a no show, so had to get that figured out. NO AIRPORT SHUTTLE INCLUDED. Costs $20 to schedule a shuttle one way.

Hotel fine, however did not get room booked.
While I can't fault the hotel, and have stayed there on many previous ocassions ( having booked either directly or on another site) the hotel room I was given on check-in was not as described on the website. The room did not accord with the booking photo. It was a much smaller room with no walk through lounge area as depicted on photo (the room I usually book at this hotel) and so no sofa bed for my young daughter. It was unsuitable for 2 adults and a child as advertised, and I was therefore forced to take an expensive upgrade at the hotel to get the room I had thought I had booked. I paid an additional R565 at the hotel. has not response to my complaint. In the circumstances, I will never book through this site again. I attach a photo of the room as booked the site. Whether this was intentional or due to an oversight this lends itself as a case of false advertising. Not impressed at all. Due to above excercise caution when booking on this site.
