Sorry to say can't share the same enthusiasm with the other guests reviews,as I started to unpack the car my wife rang the bell several times before one of the other guests answered the door.Finally entered our room & straight away I thought of a Grandmothers house (even had an old smell) I met Burt, sorry to say bit of a cold fish, showed us around the house with no real passion (he had passion for his stupid Chinese fiddler doll).I could hear everything from the women across the hall & footsteps down the hall.
Breakfast was not the best just like the service, do you know what you want ! asked Burt, seriously lacks people skills.I poured milk into my coffee the milk went lumpy & strange in my cup,community radio blaring away (couldn't have a nice chat) over the radio, we asked where Shelia was & Burt said she stays upstairs, didn't receive any afternoon tea either on arrival as promised.
Guests coming in late talking loudly outside the bedroom window woke us up on the second night,so another broken sleep again to be woken up at 6:22 am by thumping footsteps down the hall & shutting doors. Didn't have breakfast second day went to Kate's place cafe instead.Not recommended for a good night sleep. Found someones Garlic sausages left in the freezer(that didn't work)and the seals on fridge need desperate replacement . Overall even though the history of the house is fascinating it needs some repairs and an attitude change towards the guests who are funding the people that run this place. Sorry Burt but maybe it is time you did retire. You need someone who is friendly and attentive to greet guests and to answer any questions you might have. Won't be returning.
