Our room was all on one level and the shower was walk in. But there are steps to the pool, observation decks, and dinner area. I’m not sure if there was an elevator available. Contact the hotel directly just to make sure

I see the General Manager of the Hotel has submitted a vague reply, stating this is an unusual problem?? The woman I spoke to at the front desk said that another guest also complained of the rooms being very dark, so it’s just me? No, I don’t think so. Don’t make out like it’s a small little problem with one complaint. There weren’t even any plates on the last day of our stay at breakfast. Never mind hot ones. We were eating off side plates. I’m sure I had lipstick on my eyes as I couldn’t see a dam thing to get dressed in the morning. If you’re the manager, I can see why there are problems. You rate my poor remarks about your hotel as lightly as a puff of air. This hotel sucks major, and I will never return to it while you run it. You don’t seem to GET the problems. Contact Granny Goose in Cape Town and get some decent Goose Down duvets and pillows. They are an investment, and you can write them off. Use at least 600 thread Egyptian Cotton. You are supposed to be a 4 star hotel. No porter was at the entrance when we arrived. No drinks available on arrival except water. Wow! THANKS. Big t.v’s don’t cost a vast fortune, so why were the t.v.’s in the rooms about 30 inch T.V.’s? Get lamps which are standing lamps at the dressing tables and the couch. It’s DARK, YOU CANT SEE TO READ OR DODD ANYTHING. YOUR ANSWER WAS INSUFFICUENT, DULL AND DEMEANING. NO, I WONT BE BACK. PROTEA NEED A NEW MANAGER.
