If you are really stuck for a place and this is the only place available my recommendation is finding camping spot instead.
This was one of the worst experiences of a B & B that I have had. The were driving from Sydney to this place and were around 30mins away so we gave them a courtesy call informing our ETA. Upon calling them the receptionist promptly said that the reception opens at 2pm and therefore we would not be able to check-in or enter the place prior to this time. I did explain that we have a 12mth old and have a picnic which we would like to enjoy maybe in their gardens... this was not to be. We open at 2pm, goodbye!
One thing about this place is that they are consistent; take full payment for 2 or more days before the key are handed over, rubbery eggs, stale bread, no other staff to be found other than the receptionist come maid, waitress, chef. Also, she has a canny resemblance to the Polly (maid from Faulty Towers).
How do these places that charge over $250 per night, actually survive in this day and age?
