I generally try to leave only positive reviews online and speak to directly to an owner about any challenges I had with their establishment. I purchased a coupon online. Due to a death in the family and an unexpected move to a different city I was unable to use the coupon during the specified time. I contacted Rose immediately and was initially pleasantly surprised with her response to not worry about the timeline due to my extenuating circumstances. I had kept in touch with Rose and finally it came time for me to get the much needed respite.
When attempting to book my get away via the phone I found Rose exceptionally rude with absolutely no leeway in terms of dates although I was willing to go just about any day or time so that I could relax. I reminded her of our previous emails whereby she had (graciously) agreed to honour on the coupon to no avail.
Long story short. The reception I received during these communications was so hostile that I chose to not redeem my coupon and took the financial loss. It really seemed counter productive to escape the insanity of the world only to receive a less than friendly reception.
Lesson learned for me. I do however wish the Plantation House the best in the future however I would definitely say that Plantation House was a 'buyer beware' experience for me as what you receive in emails and during discussions on the phone can be 2 different things.
