We went to Chimes for a special occasion and had to try to recover a bit from a really awful year. We were both exhausted and were just hanging in there by our toenails for this break. I had read on trip advisor that room one was noisy and when we arrived I found out we were in room one. I immediately asked if we could be moved due to the breakfast noise as we really needed the chance to sleep in and we were staying four nights. The owner called me and told me that Trip advisor was not true and all about people trying to undo eachother's business. He was not at all helpful and ended the conversation by saying well you are getting a good deal and you can tell me when you leave if it was noisy. We had a couple of discounted nights but were also paying full price for two nights. I don't think you should provide special deals if you can't provide the same experience as a full price room. There was also building going on. It was very noisy and we were woken at 6.30am every day by the coffee machine and breakfast room. The rooms were average and ours was not especially clean. We couldn't open our blinds because workman were outside the whole time. Our fridge smelt so bad we couldn't use it and we were overrun by ants. As we had been so looking foward to some rest and healing it was quite upsetting.
The breakfast was lovely and the chef was very friendly as were all the staff who were mostly from Bali or other Asian countries. The afternoon tea of fresh baked biscuits was a highlight. The view from the breakfast room was lovely but a shame more of the rooms didn't have a balcony and a view.
Denmark has some amazing accomodation with much more helpful owners so wouldn't tay there again even with a disount.

It is perhaps the prettiest place in Western Australia. ... more less
