Cape Town Central, South Africa1 contribution
I was called by the owner a week after I paid in full to say that that apparently Nightsbridge "double-booked". Now I have booked many places with nightsbridge and once you make the booking it blocks it our for that date. Apparently the other people had also made a booking but not paid yet, but because they were a different bank it did not reflect yet (after a week... hmmm???). Bear in mind I had already paid in full and emailed through proof of payment. The lady that called me gave me the run-around rubbish story but I could hear she wasn't being honest. Anyway she offered to find alternate accommodation which you rightfully should have done anyway and offered us a free one-night stay, which I pretended was awesome but seriously this left a bad taste in my mouth and I'll never EVER book there again. Do yourself a favor and find alternate accommodation with honest folks, if your booking could start out as mine, then imagine what your stay would be like.

Dear Craig, I am sooooo disappointed reading your review. You were so friendly and kind in accepting that things like double bookings happen. Weren't you compensated with breakfast, a decent stay and a free visit to us to make up for a digital discrepancy that took place while we were out of signal? Yes you really played the fool with me. Please read through all out reviews you can find on the internet..... Then you will realize that we honor our customers and put in the best possible time to be able to provide them with the best experience. You are leaving a bad taste in our good hearted souls. After this review, please take your free stay with us and come and visit us, you will never be disappointed as all our other customers. Please always keep in mind double bookings can happen when people book online and people phone in at the same time. Rather call the establishment and confirm availability. Take care, and we wish you a blessed stay for your next visit. Kind Regards Mariska
