We spent the last night of our tour at The Venice Beach House which we booked after reading other reviews. It did not start well when we were overcharged by $10 which was meant to be refunded but wasn't until after we arrived and requested it, but this aside we did not feel comfortable here. The position is excellent, being only one block away from the beach but although the staff were very polite and helpful the house lacked the personal warmth of being owner ran. It was the only accomodation during our week that did not have either coffee making available in the room or available in the lounge, tea is on offer briefly in the afternoon but we did have to request hot water for this. The room was not equipped with a hairdryer or ironing board, they may have been available but were not offered and during breakfast we had another guest talking loudly into his mobile phone for several minutes at the table. The room was large and interesting with old furniture but the windows were not well covered and a large skylight had no curtain which meant that the room let the early morning sun in. The Venice Beach House felt like an impersonal hotel but without the facilities for what it charged.
