Scammer - do not book or provide the with your card details. I used the website to book a gift for a family member. The company took payment but backed it off to a third party company. I was sent an email to state my gift voucher had been ordered and received email confirmation (photos attached) all looked legitimate. No. I gifted the stay then received a call to say they are not honouring the gift vouchers purchased from their own website as it's been a year. Their voucher never arrived, all they sent had been an email with no expiry date. Following the sale in 2022 they updated their website. They've taken the money, put it in black and white there was no expiry but just taken the money and ran. I've attached their own terms and conditions they sent me. Not a mention of an expiry. Their staff are absolutely shocking, having asked a manager look at the situation they are clearly not equipped to understand their own terms and conditions. I've attached them to allow other customers to see the scam. Absolute shameless scam. I called to discuss and they confirmed they take no ownership on that area and diverted it to a third party company who are clearly extremely unprofessional. For cyber safety I would not give them any payment details or pay to them as they take no responsibility and do not honour their contracts. Dreadful, disgusting abuse of customers. To be avoided.
