Couldnt get there due to borders being closed for Covid 19 we are stuck in Tasmania. Informed both Wot if and The Great Southern Hotel about this but neither would give us a refund or a voucher to use at a later date. They happily just kept our money knowing we could no longer get there. The cancellation wasnt by choice it was forced by government restrictions. Will never use wot if or stay at Great Southern again as they ripped us off.
