Poor customer relations

11/10/2019 MikeandLeonie G,

On Oct 4, while trying to book a room in this hotel for Oct 5 online, I inadvertently booked for Oct 4. As soon as the confirmation email arrived (within seconds) I contacted the hotel to inform them... more

Richard C, General Manager at Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Mike and Leonie Since you booked through Booking.com, all correspondence in relation to your booking, needs to go via that channel. As mentioned, your booking was made for 4th October as a non-refundable reservation. We did receive a call from Booking.com, and we were asked to confirm the terms of your booking – to which we replied, and Booking.com concurred, that it was a “non-refundable booking”. The service representative thanked us, and that was the last we heard. At no time were we asked to make any concession re the terms of the reservation and nor was your booking cancelled. The hotel was fully booked on the night in question and, since your booking was live (we reiterate that it was NEVER cancelled), we were still expecting you to arrive that night. We have therefore been charged a commission from Booking.com. I am sorry that the booking process has affected your opinion of us. Had you booked directly this would have certainly been an easier process. I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we are afforded another chance to provide you with a superior experience. If I can provide any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me directly on 02 4943 6733. Sincerely, Richard Christie General Manager
