2/10 Poor

When I arrived with a confirmed reservation from Expedia, I was told there was no more room at the inn. That's it. Sorry, we don't have a room. I was told that somehow my reservation with Expedia did not "come through" despite having the confirmation in hand. My driver had left by that point, so after a long day of travel and no luggage, I was just left standing there with a reservation in hand and no place to stay. Finally my colleague had the good sense to ask them to make me a reservation elsewhere and transport me for free. They tried to make me a reservation at a "cheaper" nearby hotel that I knew nothing about. I declined and asked for the Sunbird, where I have stayed before and at least I know. They called their driver and did not tell him the ride was on the house. When he dropped me off, he asked me to pay, which I also declined, but did tip him. I am unhappy that they shrugged off a reservation and made NO effort to find me a room at their own hotel or elsewhere. You'd think they would have a protocol for when they screw up like this. The manager was less help than the original staff member. Very officious at letting me know that nope - no rooms, and yup - that is a legit reservation. So who gets the 0 - Expedia or this place?

4/10 Fair

The hotel is supposed to have a "French ambiance" as it has lots of old, rusty metal furniture pieces, mismatched chairs, etc. It probably had its better days, but those days are long gone 😞 We had a 2-bdr apartment... Shower doesn’t drain, leaking downstairs, massive mold and dry rot issues, kitchen cabinets don't open (no knobs). The swimming pool area is open to non-guests. The bedding was good. An ok restaurant. This was the worst hotel among our 28 different hotels/lodges in southern Africa.
