We stayed at the Willow Inn after a late flight . We agreed that we would be picked up from the airport and brought back the next day for ZAR 300.
When we arrived there was no transport arranged. The phone number on booking.com was not working. We managed to find another number and agreed that we would take a cab and Francios would pay the bill. This was ZAR 500.
The next day transport was arranged but also this ride we had to pay ourselves, ZAR300.
So in total ZAR800 instead of the agreed ZAR300.

After numerous text messages and chats via booking.com we have tried to contact Francios from the Willow Inn but they haven't responded.

It's not so.much about the money, but it is keeping up to your deal and responding to messages.

We would NOT recommend

My husband and I took 2 nights off from our parental duties to just get some refreshment, rest, relaxation, and some desperate sleep.

I booked us in at the Willow Inn, and boy, was it the best decision we ever made.

The staff and management were so welcoming and very friendly, the food was so delicious, the place was immaculate and very clean, and so quiet, really really enjoyed our stay

This will definitely be my go to place when We need a break

Enjoyed one night stay at The Willow Inn. Room and bathroom were basic but very clean, quiet and comfortable. Short walk to new cafe/restaurant. Lovely lounge and sofa area. Breakfast incl yoghurt, fruit and cooked options.

No tax invoice received from the property for my stay. After numerous telephone calls, email requests, requests via WhatsApp and on the booking.com app, no invoice received. Very poor from the guest house and from booking.com

This was my second time to stay here and again, a perfect place to stay. The hotel is so close to the airport and perfect for a stopover though I am certain a longer stay would also be wonderful. The rooms are great and the breakfast is amazing. Thank you!
