    From dissapointment to Excellence

    Initially I was very disappointed as the room I received was not the one I booked. When I enquired about that all they could tell me was that the pictures displayed on the room I booked was false. I spent one night in the incorrect room. I then however asked to be upgrade, which they did at an additional cost of R500, the upgraded room is outstanding. It is exactly what I originally booked. Service with regards to my upgrade and move to the new room had been great. I am very very impressed with this room and I will most definately stay at the Taj again.
