The springs area... Beautifully laid out!
However, a chap pulls up in a golf buggy and says I may not park where I am parked as it is for the hotel guests only... I am a day visitor. No advice or suggestion to "park there"...
When I ask, I must go behind a point.
But there's a pile of soil dumped and blocking the area?
So where shall I park then?
Just park on the pile!
In a car when a 4X4 could not get there???
Then inside the pool area - lots of signs saying no smoking. But the stompies are all over, floating in the jacuzzi and pool. the sign says "No glass!"
Empty bottles and glasses lying around, in the flower pots and the place is a pig-sty with old tissues as well...
Then a chap says we may not be in a part of the pool as it is only for hotel guests...
Where does it say that?
On the sign over therewe are told...
I did not see it.
We leave the area through the muddy path and look at the sign...
No restrictions like that at all!
No sign saying day visitors are not allowed in!
Of course, the staff member concerned is not to be found...
The fact that we are caucasian and the staff who were so officous were not caucasian makes me wonder what their agenda was...
Filthy pool area!
Filthy change rooms!
Bad attitude from the chap behing the bar when I asked when I could buy a cooldrink!
Really awful experience and my advice is stay away! You earn your money so don't waste it at the Montagu Springs!
