I see a few people found the owners unwelcoming. They were the rudest people I have ever met. It was an unpleasant experience from when we rang to say we were arriving at 7pm and were told that it didn't suit as that was when they had dinner. We rang them again to say we'd come at 9pm so as not to disturb their dinner.
The next day we saw on another website that they didn't take arrivals after 6pm. We had booked on wotif and paid $395 upfront (unrefundable) totally ignorant of their no after 6pm arrival rule in the fine print.
Why didn't they tell us when we rang from Perth at 3:30pm that they don't take after 6pm arrivals?
If they didn't want to be disturbed after 6pm why didn't they say 'We don't wish to be disturbed after 6pm. Thank-you for your upfront payment. We have left the key x, your room can be found x, please be quiet when you enter and we'll see you tomorrow-enjoy your stay.'
They also left a nasty phone message 15 minutes after our due arrival time because we were late. We were sorry we didn't answer. The only time we left our phone was after driving around the suburb for 15 minutes trying to find the location when we went back to the map outside the tourist information centre to check again where to go.
Thankfully we found lovely accommodation elsewhere.
