I find it quite amusing that you made a one night booking on your arrival date through Wotif, arrive at reception at 10 am attempting to check in early, and again 15 minutes later, and when you were told the apartment was occupied and needed cleaning, informed me you would return at 2 pm. When you hadn't arrived by 6 pm, I sent you a text with the late arrival information using the phone number on your booking and you declared you never made the booking. Shortly after, Expedia, Wotif's parent company, called me to inform me you had claimed you had not made a booking and demanded a refund. At the time of the booking, Wotif take the tariff, not us, so that raises a question as to how they got your credit card details, if you had not made a booking. The apartment was held for the night of your booking, against my better judgement To top it all off, you call me at 11.30 pm the following night claiming the Wotif app says you have a 2 night booking and you would like to check in, when the booking details you claimed you never made,clearly state only one Please book else where in future

The apartment was clean and reasonably spacious but a little on the dark side. Most windows overlooked parts of the building, so there was no pleasant view. We didn’t spend any significant time in the apartment, so it didn’t affect us much.

Thanks for your comments. We are not a seaside building and as such don't have these views. Having said that, the building is not that ugly with a very nice pool between the two buildings
