Never Too Late
I recently received a telephone call from a very pleasant saleslady who told me that I was one of the lucky 25 winners of the resort package for $64.95. After being assured it was not a timeshare offer, I signed up. Then when I went onto the website and read all of the reviews, I knew I made a horrible mistake. I called the Georgian resort and they told me I couldn't cancel, I could only reschedule. However, I called up VISA and explained to them. I was told that I could still cancel the payment if I haven't stayed at the resort yet, and call it Misrepresentation of the Facts by the Merchant. This is exactly what I plan to do, thanks to the reviews from other people who were mislead.
Georgian Manor not so BAD
I have been reading the reviews on the Georgian Manor Resort. I to have attended a sales presention at the Manor. I purchased a 50 yr.
membership. I have already enjoyed two great hoildays through my membership. In fact my first exchange was to whistler last March break, i had a 2 bedroom condo at the westin regina in whistler village for just under $700.00 canadian. My second trip was to Cabo San Lucas mexico. The resort was spectacular. I have owned my membership for over 1 tear now and I am stoked about the vacation options now available for my family. All the previous reviews are from non buyers. I feel your coments to be biest. You really have no clue about what you are speaking about. if anyone would like to travle the world in 6 star accomodations for less than $100.00 per day check out the georgian manor.
Thanks to this site for the warning! Re: Sales Pitch
I also received a call and something didn't sound right. The sales rep said I won but I had to pay $64.95 a night? I could stay free at the resort for 1 or 2 nights, depending on the time of days of the week.
The only thing we had to do was take a 1 1/2 hour tour...that's it. The rep even said it was nothing like a time share, only a tour. They hope that they would get future business from our friends and relatives.
I am so glad that I saw these reviews. I called back and told that to take my name off their list. I also told them that I felt they were misleading people. They told me that only 25 people won. When I confronted them about this they clarified "25 per night!". Meanwhile, it sounded like a call centre in the background! The guy said he was sorry I felt that way. My advice is to stay away!!
We recently spent a night at the manor as a result of a phone campaign.
It turned out to be a sales tactic for time share. We needless to say my husband and I were not impressed. Besides the high pressured one hour sales pitch, the room was freezing when we arrived....the childrens club house smelled like a wet old wool rug, and the indoor pool heater was broken which meant the pool was ice cold. The scum floating on top of the hot tub was unappealing as well. If you get the call, ...a no thank you would be your bet answer.
Cancelling got nasty
We "won" a trip to Georgian Manor at the home show. They called and were very pleasant. At $65 a night, I got a bit suspicious & checked this site. When we saw what it was all about, we called to cancel.
That's when they got nasty. Long story short, we've finally had to call VISA and lodge an official complaint in order to get our money back, and that's cancelling a full month before we were set to arrive.
Stay away! If they're this bad on the phone when things don't go their way, I can't imagine what happens once you're their captive.
BE VERY CAREFUL
We recently stayed at the Georgian Manor as a result of a phone campaign. Although the "salesperson" told us it was not a time share presentation, that is exactly what it turned out to be. Every person who attended had their own Salesperson to show them the property and make the sales pitch. We were subjected to a very high pressure sales presentation, in which the presenter used inflated costs to make the package appear more attractive. We advised them on several occasions we were not prepared to sign that day, and our salesperson was semi hostile because we would not sign on the spot. In addition, he mislead us, by telling us there was a "cooling off" period if we signed and then changed our minds.There is no such law in Ontario!!!!!!!. Buyer beware and make sure you do your homework. If you decide to attend, be aware of their tactics!!!!!!
I Don't Think It's Worth It
We stayed for 2 days and two nights as a result of a "phone campaign" advertising a special. Turned out it was a high pressure Timeshare presentation.The place is under construction. Warning to all potential buyers - get anything the salesman tells you in writing and don't sign anything until you have your lawyer read it. Unlike some other provinces and states, Ontario has no law protecting consumers regarding Timeshare purchases, no "10 day cooling off period". In short No Refund! Believe me, the shower which quickly changes from scalding to freezing while you're in it is nothing compared to this shock. Be warned.
Where's the hot water?
Spent a couple of nights at this "resort" in fall of 2001. Hot water in showers non existant. Complained to duty manager who explained that there was nothing they could do about it. They always had this problem when several people showered at the same time. Thought this was the 21st century and plumbing technology had gotten past the building with the crescent moon in the back yard. Apparently not in the Blue Mountains.
Further to"Puzzled and Exhausted"
Not too long ago,Vacation Inn Resort was our chose for a two day/one night getaway.We enjoyed a very good breakfast following a comfortable night's rest.The amenities and service were very good.I cannot fault anything from arrival to departure.However,,,within some months hence,the sweet voiced young marketers began calling with tempting discounts and deals.Having had former familiar experience with Florida tactics almost mirroring these,I began bombarding them with questions relating to"what is it you're selling?"Low and behold,the same time share sales pitch would take approx.three hours of our precious time if we availled ourselves of this wonderful offer.Even after more calls we never did subject ourselves to their sales pitch.
First Time Sales Target
We've just returned from a one night / 2 day stay which has left us puzzled and exhausted.
We were targeted in a sales promotion by Holiday Resorts.
Enticed by a discounted rate and coupon tactic we signed up for a weekend.
The hotel was nice although I was expecting a suite but when confirming informed we were booked in a double room
The breakfast was very good.
There were many chirdren which resulted in the small pool being to busy for our liking.
What has left my wife and I puzzled is the sales pitch which lasted 2 plus hours.
It was high pressure and to tell you the truth I'm suprised that we didn't succumb.
Too much information too fast has left us seeking an answer as to whether or not it's a good deal.
$12,000 for 50yrs membership
+ $335.00 of usage/2 yrs (we pay)
plus $400.00 one time fee
signing bonus we'ed get 3 8 day/ 7 night holidays to be used in the next 3 years.
That would intitle us to world wide access to 5 & 4 Star hotel and resort Single bedroom suite accomodations at $335 8day/7night once /yr
It could be upgraded or extended for additional $.
Cost indexed to CDN consumer index. Whole sale flights ect...
