I did not like the unpleasant surprise when I went to pay that despite your advertising of a weekend away in wellington cheapest price etc. you charged me more for the Saturday night than the Friday The materiality of the increase in price was insignificant it's the fact you cheated me that means I will NEVER EVER be back. I will also be advertising the deception to my friends and associates. Be up front about your rates.
