We turned up in Victor Harbor after worrying about the route because of bushfire warnings and alerts, that coupled with a very hot, hot, 40 degree day travelling from Adelaide.
I had made the booking for the night with a gentleman and the room was discussed at length, credit card details given etc.,
My sister and i went to book in and there was no booking for us...
Now this time of year this could potentially have been very challenging for us, but the lovely younger lady at reception assisted us and we were allocated two queen rooms on lower level of the hotel, which suited our needs so we took them.
We paid for the rooms and checked in.
Air conditioners whilst a little noisy did the job; everything in the room was as it should be; and we were quite happy with our overnight stay there. The beds were very comfy; shower pressure good; water hot; creature comforts supplied.
I have to admit the other reviews about the car parking being designated one way certainly make sense, as there was a family who continuously let three young children run riot whilst the parents were elsewhere, and there were a lot of families staying at the hotel.
My sister and I returned the key to front reception on checkout morning and were quite perplexed about the manner in which we were requested to wait until she had checked us out. Had she been on top of her game, she would have known that we had paid the previous day. We were given the obligatory keep cool, enjoy your day, but ......
These are the kind of things that influence whether I would stay again.....
