This is my first negative review I have ever done as I have never had such a bad experience. Probably one of the rudest ladies I have met. Accommodation was organized through work and didn't realize check in wasn't until 3:30. So I jumped off the long flight (about 1pm), grabbed a taxi and was greeted by abuse from the female host for not ringing in advance. After apologizing numerous times and offering to come back later she continued to rudely check me in.
Now the place itself. I know work payed for the room, which was a good thing because I wouldn't have payed for it. For starters the room had a tiny little heater that did not heat the room at all. The screen on my laptop was bigger than the tiny tv provided. Bathroom was nice but was a bit put off by the fish tank with 2 dead gold fish floating on the top. The pool is well past due for a clean and is in no way is useable
Overall the place felt like a prison with a highly sophisticated front security entrance and my first experience of a B&B with cameras all over the place. Honestly I have stayed in truck stops on the nullarbor that were half the price and felt more homely than this.
So bad was my experience that in the end I packed my bags and left at 5am the next morning, skipping out on breakfast as I didn't want to deal with the rudeness.
