"i purchased a voucher through Wowcher and no where was i told i would have to input three seperate dates on the booking form, the form wouldnt go through with just one date in or the same date in the three boxes. i then got an e-mail back to say i had got my third choice of date, which i didnt want or couldnt do. i tried contacting omg before i filled the booking form in but you are unable to get through to this company on the phone and i sent five seperate e-mails to ask them to consider changing my dates to the one i wanted and received no response from any of my e-mails even though omg were advertising a similar deal on their own website in the same city with availabilty for my preferred choice of date. i then contacted wowcher to see if they could help me and all i got told was omg were unable to amend or cancel my booking once the booking had been made........stay clear of this company, customer service is non existent and i will NEVER use them again!!!!!"
"Bought a voucher through Living Social to book a one night stay in hotel with 3 course meal at Jamie Olivers restaurant. Not cheap at £150 for two people. The restaurant has gone into liquidation but no contact from OMGhotels. When i contacted them, they refuse to refund me as i'd booked the hotel.......of course i had, because the voucher would run out. i am now having to take the hotel booking, which incidentally was for my birthday, and will have to accept whichever restaurant they decide to offer me. Really unfair, as i only bought the voucher because of the meal."
"If I could give this company a zero star rated review I would. To cut a long story short, exceptional circumstances that no one could have predicted, meant we were unable to attend a Harry Potter Studios Tour we'd paid for. The Warner Bros Studios Tour company, as a gesture of goodwill, sent a refund to OMGHotels.com for payment to us. This was in June and the refund is still outstanding. Emails to OMGHotels MD haven't been answered and their customer service team just keep sending us around in circles. I will never entertain using them again."
"I booked a OMG hotel and theatre package via Travelzoo for two nights in London 11/12 Aug for my mother and myself at a cost of £389. What I didn’t do was review each of the 4-star hotels that were listed on the OMG site. When the reservation came through it was at the Good Hotel in London E16 (a 35 minute train journey from the Theatre!). This wasn’t the major problem, the fact that The Good Hotel is a floating hotel was a major issue as my 80 year old Mum has a morbid fear of water. So I emailed the booking manager immediately on 6th August who confirmed the reservation as her email stated “please contact me if I can help”. I asked for the reservation to be moved to another hotel that wouldn’t cause my Mum such anxiety. I also called the customer service line, which puts you into a never-ending loop of choices which means you don’t have the opportunity to speak to anyone in person By 11th August I still had not received a reply, so I booked an alternative hotel as there was absolutely no way my Mum could stay in a hotel room floating on water. I also sent another email requesting a response. At the time of writing I have not received a reply to either email that was sent to Frannie Jenkins, Booking Manager. This was my first experience of using OMG hotels and Travelzoo for that matter - I won’t be using either again and will be sharing this review with Travelzoo as well. Appalling lack of customer service!!"
"a minute ago
Terrible experience. I purchased expensive tickets to see a westend show only to be advised 2 days before the show date that there wasn't any availability and I'd have to choose an alternative day. I wasn't able to talk to anyone in customer service as they never seem to pick up their telephone. I had also arranged parking and a restaurant reservation and had a very disappointed 8 year old. I would never use this company again."
"Our family booked a Wowcher for our 60th Wedding Anniversary which included 1 nights accommodation in a London Hotel with OMG Hotels and a 24 hour hop on hop off River Thames Cruise. Our complaint was initially with OMG Hotels who took over the organisation but when OMG Hotels did not respond to emails, telephone calls or a written letter we then tried to take it up with Wowcher. No joy there, they told us it was company policy not to deal with us the recipients, they could only deal with our family who had purchased same voucher. we explained this was too difficult and embarrassing. So Wowcher denied us help. Briefly we chose a Hotel within a short distance of a Pier to facilitate our travel. However we were accommodated in a Hotel in OLympia 4.9 miles from the nearest Pier, the Hotel we chose (which did have availability) was `1 or 2 minutes walk from a Pier. We received our communication from OMG Hotels stating that we would received our vouchers 48 hours before our booking, we did not receive these and tried countless telephone calls and emails to let them know but no reply. On the morning of our journey at 09.25 we received an email via my phone with vouchers and we were already at the Coach stop awaiting our 09.40 Coach. A disaster. Hotel were able to print off voucher from my email but a different story when we reached the Pier Kiosk. Eventually we were allowed to board Cruise Boat. Very stressful. As a company Wowcher have a duty of care to their clients but they dismissed my honest and justified complaint and hidden behind "Company Policy". When we made our complaint to Wowcher they did contact OMG Hotels and we did receive a letter from them but this was full of inaccuracies. Be very careful when dealing with these companies especially if you plan to "gift them". Our experience was stressful and frustrating caused by the thoughtfulness of OMG."
"Disgraceful non existent customer service. Having paid for a two night London break no voucher has ever been reveived. Despite numerous emails and voicemails i have had no response at all. I have had to resort to legal procedure to recoup my payment."
"Bombay Gin visit along with overnight stay advertised. As a party of 4 we had to fill out a form and was informed would respond within 3 working days. Took longer and only received a reply by email, after TravelZoo intervened. However date we initially wanted, was now fully booked. Frannie asked if there was any other dates we had in mind. We responded by asking what dates were available within a time span. Unfortunately, now 6 working days, and never received a reply back. Telephone numbers given, complete waste of time. Every extention has recorded message,”Mailbox full. Please try again later”. Not the best customer service!"
"Absolutely appalling customer service skills. Their contact number goes straight to answer phone and I left a message, with no reply. So I left another and yet again no reply. I left 4 messages over 4 weeks and numerous emails. Not one was replied to until 3 days before I depart. I spoke to “David James- Concierge Team Manager” via email who seems to only put the blame onto myself for misunderstanding the booking, if my first email had been replied to they could have clarified everything and I would be looking forward to my weekend away this Saturday. Instead David felt the need to patronise and blame me for everything that has gone wrong. When I told him i would be leaving a review he said he would forward any review onto his legal team to take action. What’s the point of review sites for customers to put up their honest opinion if companies threaten legal action. Appalled at the lack of customer service received and would highly recommend booking with another company rather than this one. Saying this i do hope my weekend away will be enjoyable and this fiasco will not get in the way."
"The worse company that I have ever deal with. Poor customer service. Not responding on emails and voice mails. Unorganised and rip off!
Firstly, I tried to book my voucher for 1 night stay in Bath, which I have received in a gift. The customer service team contacted me one month later that I have to buy another wowcher because on voucher it was written in very small font that "one night stay in Bath for two people required 2 wowcher to be released". So I have received link to pay that extra £100. I have emailed OMGhotels, that "I have paid, can I now continue my booking" . NO response for about another month to number of emails and voice mails. Finally I have received email that my experience is already booked from Sunday to Monday-even if I only wanted weekends. So I have responded to the email and asked politely if can be move the stay for a weekend and I willing to pay extra fee. Only have received rood respond with statement: "dates and times can't be changed ".
I have received emails with the booking confirmation for the hotel and for the "roman spa museum entrance" 3 days before the trip. Before, I have already booked tickets for early Monday because I had important meeting in London and I had to be back. However the entry to Bath Spa museum was bought for Monday (probably because it was less expensive for the company). So I had to call the museum to move the tickets for Sunday and pay the extra fee.
Overall, for one night stay from Sunday to Monday with breakfast in 4 star Hotel and standard museum entry for two people I have paid 205 + 75 for train tickets=£280. Just avoid."
"awful experience. I booked a 1 night stay in a hotel and a 3 course meal at Jamie Olivers restaurant. I never received the code for my Jamie Olivers restaurant even though I paid, I tried numerous times to contact them via telephone and email and they never phoned or contacted me back. Terrible service, absolute SCAM!!!"
"I booked a 1 night stay with Thriller show and was told there was not enough seats available for 4 people to sit together on the day I wanted so had to book the next day. I have had to contact them every step of the way. Customer service is terrible!
You try to phone and are met with an answerphone which they NEVER get back to you! I left 5 messages and wasn't once phoned back. Emailing is just as bad it takes 3 days. I am travelling tomorrow and although had an email confirming booking I am still waiting for the booking vouchers to take with me with all the details on. Would not recommend or use again!"
"Terrible customer service. We wanted to book to see thriller on a 2 nights break in London. We payed through groupon for the deal.
Then we got an email saying the dates we wanted was not available . After that trying to get through to the company has been a NIGHTMARE. We have emailed, tried ringing and just get a recorded message saying leave your name and number and we will get back to you. Guess what ? They dont.
Would NEVER book with these again"
"The most difficult company i have ever tried to contact! Phone line does not work, i was told i’d recieve my booking vouchers within 7 - 10 working days. After 4 weeks i’m still yet to recieve them after numerous emails back and forth and being told over and over again i will get them. When booking it was never made clear i would no get a choice of hotel after advertising a list ( and i already checked availability for preferred hotels) i also did not ger the preferred date i would of liked to travel. It feels like i have been scammed of my money and will never recieve my voucher!!! Will never ever use again!"
"I am surprised to see so many positive responses towards OMGHotel’s services, when my experience was so negative.
I tried for two weeks straight to contact OMGHotels regarding my booking and did not receive one response. Resulting in me not using my voucher due to no clarity. I left numerous voicemails (because the phone did not ring once!!) and tried to contact through Wowcher who advertise the deal. The only time I received any form of response from them was when they sent through the confirmed vouchers, that I had been trying to ask for advise on.
Seeing below that customers have received changes to their original hotel and restaurant bookings, (which is the same request as my own), makes me question their consistency. Since my booking dates have passed and I’ve asked for a refund due to no correspondence (leading to no use of the vouchers), I was told that it was simply not possible to make changes to your bookings. This is quite the opposite to the service received by other customers!
My latest email to OMGHotels has been ignored for over two weeks.
Be VERY careful when booking these deals. Locations are scattered and not logistically easy. Certainly do not book anything in conjunction with something else that you already have booked - once you’re locked in, and they have you’re money, don’t expect any help!"
It's always disappointing to hear if ever someone feels we've fallen short as we pride ourselves on the service we provide. And as you've said you can see the positive reviews of our service below, as everyone else can, which is clear evidence of this.
It's more disappointing though when someone makes a false review.
As you’re aware you bought a hotel and restaurant experience on a non-amendable and non-refundable basis and you accepted the terms at the time of purchase.
As an agent we don’t have any control over the cancellation policy suppliers put in place, which is why we always include it prior to booking for your acceptance and agreement which you agreed to and instructed us to proceed. Some suppliers provide free cancellation periods, which is how some people can have their bookings changed. This was not the case for you as you accepted at the time of booking.
It’s the same with non-amendable non-refundable flight bookings and many other services and events, changes aren’t possible to them. Otherwise we’d happily have obliged. This was also previously explained to you in our correspondence.
Your DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel was booked with breakfast and dining at your chosen restaurant as purchased and if you chose not to take these up as you later said and instead sought to take a refund again after the date had passed then we’re unable to comment on this as they were available for you to use.
We do accept requests for hotels and will always check our availability first if a customer makes these and we will book any customer into their request when this is available. We will always place customers within easily accessible reach of the other elements they've booked and I can see was done for you.
As a globally responsible company, if we had made an error in any way we'd of course held our hands up and resolved the situation but we supplied everything according to what was purchased and simply could not refund your booking when you decided to change your mind afterwards as you’d bought a non-refundable non-amendable experience.
As a leading experience company sending thousands of customers away each year and operating since 2014, we arrange many trips for thousands of satisfied customers, often in conjunction with any other plans they may have and this is why we we're valued by our new and repeat customers time and time again.
This is also why we receive consistently high reviews across review platforms globally and also by individual customers thanking us personally each day.
