Room advertised with Wotif wasn’t available upon checkin. Was down graded. Breakfast which was included in the package wasn’t acknowledged on booking and was queried upon arrival to restaurant. No confirmation to reception was completed, just advised we weren’t entitled to breakfast. One bar of soap in room, no other toiletries available. Tired room. Staff at checkout were helpful and empathetic. Communication between Wotif and resort needs to be rectified. We weren’t the only ones to experience this issue, same day and day prior.
