We are sorry for the inconvenience, however we do require a preauthorisation of $150 on check in. Please note that as we are asking the banks to freeze the amount, it will not show as a refund. After a period of time the original amount will drop away and you will have access to the funds again.

The Crest was a great location, super comfy bed and a nice shower. Check in and check out were nice and easy. The only problem was you couldn’t fit a bottle of champagne in the fridge standing up.

Thankyou for taking the time write us a nice review. As our fridges are only bar size, a bottle of champagne would be tricky to fit upright. We are happy to hear that our check in and check out was done efficiently, and you enjoyed the rooms.
