Ambassador Hotel

Upon arrival on the 4 Jan 2014 we were told that we were on a half-pension plan which was indicated on their voucher from Travelplan.  When I told them that we had no meals included the manager said that the voucher means more to him than an itinerary, however he would check with Travelplan. The manager returned with an answer on the Thursday and showed me the information sent by Travelplan, on which was indicated that we were entitled to one complimentary dinner. This led to more confusion. We had only one dinner at the hotel because the food was so poor and the location of the restaurant in the cellar felt claustrophobic. Also upon arrival we were taken to a one bedroom apartment.  When I complained to the manager that we had a two bedroom apartment booked and told him that Toby had called to check on the 2-bedroom apartment booking (as told to me by Toby verbally and in a follow-up email) the manager said that he had not received any call or further confirmation and complained that Travelplan caused them a similar problem the previous year and that Travelplan don't know how to book correctly in their hotel/apartments.  The manager was luckily able to give us a 2-bedroom apartment. He was helpful, accommodating and pleasant throughout our stay.

Toy & Ross ski trip to Zermatt

Written by Ross a Skier from Brookvale, NSW. Australia
21/3/2011

Dear  Miranda: We are just back from our holiday, booked through you,  principally to Zermatt skiing. Zematt was fabulous and we just loved  skiing there, as well as over the hill in Italy. The Hotle Sonne that  you booked us into was just excellent. The family running it were always there, but the staff did leave you alone too.  It was a wonderful  balance.  The food was just great. Please feel free to pass on to  other Travelplan staff & management our comments, and both Toy and I would  be happy if you wanted to quote our comments.

Thank you for your own efficiency, too in all of the booking processes.
