I wanted a couple of quiet days in the middle of a long and busy trip. Albury/Lake Hume is a wonderful area with lots do with colonial towns, the lake and the ski fields not far away. When I discovered there was an Accor hotel at the lake, the All Seasons, I looked at their website and decided to stay. However, the website was very misleading. I was expecting a Hotel. I had booked a room with a lake view but that was not what I got. When I arrived I saw the sign for the hotel, but couldn’t find it. Reason being that it’s not really a hotel. It really is a group of cabins with a few rooms in the main building. It reminded me of a British holiday camp from the 1960’s, but after a long journey I couldn’t be bothered to go elsewhere. Fortunately, when I checked in, I was given a one bedroom villa which has recently been built. It wasn’t bad, but had no lake view and because it wasn’t finished, there was no phone. I was told that if I wanted something, to call the reception on my mobile/cell phone. Except, my UK mobile/cell couldn’t find a signal from a partner network in the area. And if I could have phoned, it would have cost me £1.60/$2.50 per minute to call reception!
The bed and the facilities the Villa were fine and I would stay here again if I could have one of these, but as for the rest of it, all I can say is Hi-De-Hi and where is Ted Bovis!
