Really bad experience
Really bad experience - Italian afternoon tea was nothing like description and food was horrible - restaurant not interested and Virgin Experience customer services no use at all.
Description of experience completely incorrect and deceptive.
A 65th birthday experience that should have been a lovely event was a disaster made worse by the way that Virgin have handled the problem......BEWARE when booking!
I ordered a gift experience for a hotel with dining option for my newlyweds friends.
I haven’t been told in advance that the experience was ONLY available Mon-Thurd ( even if it was - which I really doubt, it must have been hidden somewhere in tiny print). My poor friends had to take a day off - which of course was NOT what I wished to give them as a gift. When they got to the Dumbleton hotel (in the Cotswolds ) they were given a small room ( Not the luxury/superior room that was promised) and the decor was apparently run down, with a really below the average bathroom. You advertise this experience as being worth of many star, you talk about being an ‘impressive’ and a beautiful wedding venue, but it was sad, uncared for and with uncaring stuff. Apparently the average age of the diners in the restaurant (dinner was included in the ‘experience’) was over 70, this should also be made clear on your website - the target audience. Say the truth. Don’t mislead your customers. Make sure that you are able to deliver what you promise. As of now, I won’t be buying from you ever again, and will make sure that my voice, as a respectable paying customer, will be heard by others which don’t deserve to be let down, or even worse let down their loved friends.
Unfortunately I couldn't give 0 star.
Probably the worst "experience" provider ever.
I bought a cruise on the Thames, only to realise that you pay in advance for a voucher, with no dates confirmed.
And to my delight, I discovered there weren't any dates suitable to my schedule.
I tried and tried to see if I could find one, but no luck.
When I gave up and asked for a refund, I was told that I was out of the 14 days refund policy.
If you want to spend your money without the possibility to get a refund and a very appalling customer service, this is the company to go for.
It really look like a scam.
They get your money first, that's the most important thing.
Then if you can get what you purchased, great.
If you don't, they simply don't care.
I had two Virgin Experience Days vouchers. One was for the climb the O2 the other was for a cocktail experience. Neither are now suitable, as my wife is pregnant.
I contacted Virgin Experience Twitter team and asked about exchanging the vouchers. I was told this was possible, and that the expiry date of the new voucher would be the same as the date the original voucher (10 Nov). I received the voucher in the post yesterday, and the expiry date was the 10 October.
I went back to double check my messages only to find that .... the message that the virgin experience team sent Via twitter, stating the expiry was 10th November, was deleted !
I have screenshot to prove this was sent to me.
It is clear to me that the agent clearly noticed their error when reissuing the voucher and decided to delete the message .... rather than just admit they were wrong.
Either that or they are trying to get me to pay an additional £20 to pay for an extend the expiry date.
I would have no issue if I felt that this was a genuine mistake ... However, I find it absolutely disgraceful that my conversation history has been doctored, and is a clear failure on Virgin end !
This is not what I would expect by way of service. This is also the thoughts of the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) who have indicated they will investigate should I not reach a satisfactory outcome with Virgin (At this minute in time - this is very unlikely)
Virgin claim that the message shows on their end - but will not share evidence to that effect or will they comment on the evidence that I have provided.
I have asked for this to be escalated to a manager on two separate occasions, this has yet to happen.
Virgin are not taking this serious ! I have lost all faith in their service and I would advice others to consider other providers before placing an order.
Tried to exchange my voucher prior to expiry. Wouldn’t let me online so contacted them. Took so long to reply that it expired so they told me to pay to extend so I could exchange which I did (even though was their fault!). Now they refuse to exchange because my company bought the voucher for me. Even though the original voucher clearly states “this face value voucher is exchangeable”!
Bought a £80 e voucher and paid £60 with a discount, I changed my mind about the restaurants experience after hearing bad reviews and then I wanted to ask for refund. Refund cannot be made as its the terms hidden somewhere I was told. I decided to go for another restaurant at cafe concerto. When I got there the voucher was costing me more then if I was to pay for the food in the restaurant.
I am feeling really disgusted that a company this big can make money by conning people. be aware of the real price , do your checks before wasting money through them. First and last time.
Its a shame I did not came here to read review before, its full of negative reviews.
180 pounds I paid for Silverstone Ferrari track driving. My dream come true . I can't buy this world class car but what feel the comfort , experience of super speed just thrilled me. I was just feeling out of world.
Though it was costly for me at least,but my dear friends, this was wow experience. I will go for Silverstone track again and wouldn't mind expenses because after one or two decades I can remember my this adventure.
Rest people of Virgin is very friendly.
