I booked a room at Wilton Manor through Expedia. I did it because of it's location, parking, internet and price as well the pictures showed a beautiful Victorian House. We got to Cape Town very late and we did the check around 11pm. There was only a watchman who told us the hotel was full and our room was 3 blocks away at " Festival Court", at Expedia there was no such indication. He took us to an apartment building in Main st ( 3 blocks away) bars all over the windows and doors with no parking, no internet and no beautiful Victorian House. Nice though. The day after at breakfast, at Wilton Manor, where we were supposed to be, a lovely lady who seemed to be the owner tried to comfort us in our disappointment, but no refund or price break for the lack of accommodation like parking or internet was issued. We stayed because they were really nice but overall because there was a mining conference in Cape Town and all hotels were fully booked. It's not a pleasant surprise when you get to a city you don't know, with hotel reservations and turns out not to be what you booked!
