“Shabby treatment by manager”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

My daughter, who is working in Lesotho, had a confirmed reservation for us at this establishment. When we arrived at 3 in the afternoon, exhausted from our travel in the mountains and anxious to freshen up after our visit to a rural area. However, the manager, who was manning the reception desk informed us that because our daughter had not answered her cell phone calls, she had let our rooms to someone else. The manager was not only not apologetic, but openly hostile to our daughter. We suspect the alleged phone call was a fabrication since our daughter's phone showed no missed calls and no messages, though it was off while we attended a church service and to conserve energy as that part of the country was without power for most of the day. The manager did finally find us rooms at a much nicer lodging, which she might have done in the first place instead of treating us so rudely. We were happy to turn our backs on this place. It was the sad exception to a city we found to be filled with delightful, happy and friendly people.

Room Tip: Find other lodging if possible; otherwise avoid the manager.

Thank you so much for this review. We take all comments seriously and constructively. Albeit much time has passed since the posting of the above review and our attendant response we have, to the extent possible, tried to address the issues raised.

We wish to notify our guests that our front desk reception has always and continues to close at 2200hrs after which arrangements are in place for receiving and welcome late arriving guests. Also, all our rooms now have fridges. Next time, you are encouraged to taste our breakfast or any of our meals and submit your comments which will be highly appreciated.

As the owner of Tribute Guest House I take the provision of good accommodation, food and friendly service to be of the utmost importance and we are certain that several of our other clientele can attest to this. Once again thank you for your comment. We sincerely look forward to receiving and serving you in the near future.
