Lies & poor showing deserving of a 0 star rating

I made a booking for the honeymoon suite, and 15 min later had to cancel because the event we were going to was cancelled. I called the venue and was told that I would have to forfeit all the money due to terms and conditions. I figure we may as well make the most of it and just go. After much fracas, with the overzealous administrator cancelling the booking etc, I got confirmation from her and safari now that I was indeed booked.
FFW the day, we go off to harties, only to be told at the gate that there is no room for us. Impossible, I say, I have confirmation and my name is on the list you've just shown us for the honeymoon suite. We go speak to the owner who offers us "more expensive" options because "there is no water in the honeymoon suite". Enroute to see these other "more expensive" options, we spot a couple looking all loved up outside our RESERVED & PAID FOR chalet. Apparently, they had been there 1 night already. After much complaint, the owner offered us a full refund, but we still had to trek back to Pretoria in the dead of night. None of this would have been necessary had we been contacted the day before, or they had cancelled the booking when we requested. The only bright side was that the money was back in our account the next day. Very poor showing Shangrila-Innibos!

The room that I booked online through SafariNow and the room that was actually booked at the venue for us was not the same!!! The room type that I booked online was fully booked when we arrived and had to either go with a log cabin which was totally unacceptable or a room in the house. We ended up going with the room in the house which was not ideal but much better than that of the log cabin. The owner at least tried to assist as he could see I was unhappy.
Be careful to book anything through SafariNow as what you book and what you get is NOT the same!!!

We stayed at Shangrila-Innibos over a weekend, arriving in the dark on a Friday night. The signage for the venue runs parallel to the road, making it difficult to see if you've never been there before. The accommodation was adequate, hence the review title. We stayed in the honeymoon chalet, whose description is a little bit misleading, in the sense that the private garden that it claims to have is a hardly private and hardly a garden. The appliances and fittings, while serviceable, appear to be ancient and cheap
I think that my biggest gripe is on the value for money side. Perhaps I am ignorant, or out of line, but my feeling is that it was overpriced, and things that are often taken for granted such as housekeeping and breakfast were optional extras. All in all Shangrila-Innibos was more or less sufficient for our needs, but that's about it.
To end on a positive note all the staff were friendly, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her massage (I think that the masseuse's name is Grace?).

The staff was friendly
The rooms were dirty and funny smell and a broken TV in the room.
The noise was like we were sleeping outside on the street. .

Close to Jhb and yet the ambiance creates a bush retreat effect which could be anywhere. Well managed and maintained.

Dit was 'n heerlike en rustige naweek.
Die eienaar is baie vriendelik en akkomoderend en het uit sy pad gegaan om alles so gerieflik moontlik te maak.
Die personeel is ook baie hulpvaardig.
Dankie vir 'n heerlike wegbreek!

This is a very neat place and close to all things, but definitely not value for money, the cabins are so close to each other, you can hear the other people talk inside their cabin.A bit more privacy should be nice.
Also the noise all the trucks, cars and bikes make is a bit hectic as the main road is close to the entry.But other than that, we had a rest, and that is all that matters.
Not up to standard

The accomodation was definitely not worth the money you pay. The chalet was dirty. The cutlery is breaking and dirty. The cupboard is breaking. The cupboard in the bathroom doesn't even have doors and looks terrible. The help is very unfriendly and we never saw the owner/manager even once. Not worth visiting.
Relaxed and destressed

We got to Shangrila-Innibos on 19 April 2014, we were informed by SafariNow that the check in was 12:00pm but when we arrived at our destination we were told that check in was 14:00pm.
Luckily, the owner told us that we could wait at the pool and that they would let us know once our room was ready. The staff was very friendly and our room was ready before 14:00pm.
Our room was well maintained and the atmosphere was very relaxed which was lovely.
We were literally right outside the Elephant Sanctuary and close to the flee market and close enough to a Spar if we needed anything.
My fiancé and I felt well rested and de-stressed when we left and would definitely go there again!
I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to just get away to relax, it was pleasant and welcoming.
