Arrived for the stay we'd booked three months prior and the innkeeper was in Sydney - someone tracked her down for us. We were told (1) property flooded; emergency, (2) under renovation, (3) they weren't booking this year, (4) she hadn't been able to reach us to cancel - that would be via email, phone AND postal address and three months lead time?! They asked for proof that we had actually booked - which I had with me.
We were sent down the road to rooms to the MacDonald Country Inn that she stated she also owned, and that they were in the process of rennovating - adequate, but not a B&B, and overlooking cinder parking lots and a main road - hot and noisy; no AC and one window lacked the mechanism for opening. St Peter's is too remote to take a chance, so not knowing the area we stayed. It felt very much like bait-n-switch - they wanted payment that night and then asked a second time in the morning, and they were reluctant to disclose what was in the area - "we serve dinner here".
