My wife and I stayed here last night on our recent trip to Stanley. The hosts took it upon themselves to book us in for dinner there for $55 pp unasked and then could not produce the set menu. We found a lobster special at the local pub which was far better value.
The unit was well furnished but the view advertised is not as it is described (see picture), I would not say a barb wired fence and unkept garden was a bass strait view. The bathroom was a bit of a let down with leaky shower and public hair on the floor.
Bed was comfy though and it was a nice quiet rural location. The new owners were quiet friendly and helpful.
They are on the right track here but just need some fine tuning and a good tidy up. Try not to just book people into your restaurant when booking as it is a turn off.
