"An inhospitable â€˜welcomeâ€™ by deceptive, indifferent front desk personnel. Bait and switch online booking, inaccurate CA"
On checking in (around 4:30 pm Tuesday 12 September) I noticed on a map that the 2 bedroom villa I was offered was fairly close to the road. I asked for one a bit further back, facing the golf course but was told â€œnone were availableâ€. Must be pretty busy here, I mused. However, on entering the villa my friends and I noticed we were the only ones there â€“ no other cars at any other 2 bedroom villas. And no one showed up that night. The next night we saw two 2-bedroom villas had lights on (but no cars in front). Why were we told we could not have a golf view villa considering they were, in fact, available? It was a shock to see how tired the villas were. The roofs are peeling, furniture and curtains are stained, washroom blinds were missing blades. The Pinestone website villa photos do not reflect the reality of how tired and worn this resort is. Prior to checking out I revisited their website room rate for 2 bedroom villas and it indicated, as I recalled when I booked, â€˜from $319, plus discount for CAA to $287â€™. I was charged $349 -- why? Judging by the few cars in the parking lot, and how empty the 2 bedroom villas were, the resort had a very low occupancy. I pointed out to the front desk person the discrepancy between their website rate and what I was being charged, but she insisted I pay the $349. I then asked for the manager but was told she was not in and was given her card. I asked about the CAA discount. She offered $15/night off. I asked what percentage is their CAA discount, and she said 15, then changed it to 5. ($17.45 would be 5% off $349, not $15.00.) Doing the math, their website actually indicates a 10% CAA discount. Why wasnâ€™t I given 10% off? What are owners Vince and Ravi Aurora (of Aurora Hospitality Group in Vaughan) doing here since purchasing the resort in August 2015? Raking in any monies they can on a very very tired resort, for as long as they can? Despite stated â€˜big plansâ€™ to redevelop The Pinestone â€œto what it should have been many years agoâ€ before a meeting of Dysart councillors (The Highlander, Sept 2015). TripAdvisor shows many poor reviews by disgruntled guests over the past two years. Is anyone taking note of this? I feel ripped off.
Hotel is dated. My room was so dark even during the day that you couldn't even read. Wallpaper falling off in bathroom. Decor had to be 50 years old and never changed or fixed. TV only worked on a couple of channels. Light bulb burnt out in main fixture. Asked th front desk to send someone to fix it but no one ever did.
"Worst value for money"
My partner and I have been to numerous hotels and resorts around the globe, this one on our home turf was the worst value for money ever! At roughly $200/night with a 2 night minimum you would at least expect some kind of breakfast included. Although, the rooms were fairly large and well laid out. The beds were quite comfortable with their pillow top mattresses, feather duvets and choices of pillows. The rooms were musty smelling and poorly lit. The hallways had old heavily stained carpets in much need of replacement. The toilet was very low down and was not easily accessable for someone with a disability. There was very little counter space in the bathroom to put toiletries on.The doors into the building didn't allow for disabled persons to manouver easily through. Stairs and no ramps in the main lobby unless you wanted to go outside and around the building to get through another entrance. The restaurant wasn't worth the money either. Extremely slow service yet wasn't that busy. Half the food was cold and half luke warm. Ordered a single portion of mussels but served and charged for a double.Tables weren't cleared in a timely manner and server wasn't very knowledgeable.
"Great space for the Price!"
We needed a clean place to stay near Bancroft and found this little gem! It's not a high end resort, but it is a decent place to stay. The staff at the front desk were very polite and welcoming. The pools (indoor and outdoor!!) were both clean and spacious with lots of clean towels for guests. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. The ONLY thing that I would change is that it smelled musty.... we opened the patio door and kept the bathroom fan on to air it out. We were in the 'extra' building which is only a 2 minute walk from the main building. I'm not sure why it was musty, but that is the only thing that needs to be changed... can't complain for $150/night however.
"Tired and in need of care"
Arrival was really nice. Staff are really helpful and were able to accomodate us with another couple who were with us in a villa. Villa was nice on first look but then...no hot water in one room; toilets did not flush properly in both and one ran for 2 days; towels are really small and really really thin; carpets are wrinkly and need serious work; roof of the villas would be hard pressed to withstand a decent storm. Rooms smelled musty but luckily we were able to open both back and front doors to air out. Beds were fine and comfortable. The service at the patio was good and the basic food was fine. However when looking at other friends hotel rooms and checking around the resort, it was clear that not a lot of money has been spent on upkeep. Carpets everywhere are wrinkled, there is no lounge for guests to simply hang out (only the restuarant had tables and chairs) the paint in the pool is chalky and comes off when touched. Some larger unpainted concrete pieces in the pool. No pool service and not enough loungers evident. One word comes to mind...tired! I sure that this was once a smart hotel but today this old lady needs a lot of makeup. It was dissapointing and I dont think worth the money paid (even after the discounted rate)
