To celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary we had been looking for a break down south so my husband could go fishing and i could have a bit of quiet time so we had done a bit of research on the internet and came upon clover cottage which sounded ideal so we booked 3 nights. The booking confirmation has the address as manjimump but beware the address is actually quinninup which is 30ks further south. Confused the crap out of our sat nav. We booked 2 bedroom cottage number 4 but on arrival the second bedroom was locked. Just the two of us i know but if you pay for 2 bedrooms then that is what you should get or if you lock the second bedroom then surely we should just be charged for a 1 bedroom cottage. No mobile phone signal, no internet, no landline and 4 tv channels. Definately isolated. Tired furnishings in definate need of refurbishment. We had to clean the grubby finger marks from the tv, clean the grime from the food cupboards and drawers which we very dirty, with cobwebs, spiders and cockroaches in the lounge. We drove to manjimup on day 2 to buy some insect spray and to contact the outside world. Bedroom freezing, glad we took extra blankets. The website states that fly fishing equipment is available for hire but when we enquired there was only one old rod available which had kinked fly line. Not ideal. Couldnt use the verandah as was too cold and no outdoor heating. Owner pleasant but appeared disinterested. This accommodation was not at all what we expected and we stayed only 2 of the 3 nights and i was ready to come home after one night. For us needs brought into the 21st century.
