We needed to Tay overnight for a wedding nearby in the Yarra Valley this past Saturday night. It was difficult to get accommodation as it must be related to wedding season in Victoria. The price seemed really high but we had no choice so took it. We arrived at 5 to drop our gear off before going to the wedding. The room was modest and fine but for $300 we expected the minuscule TV to work let alone the heater, which both did not and it is pretty cold there. As we were meeting mum for a birthday lunch nearby for her birthday lunch the following day at 12 pm we asked the day before for possible late check out ie 1100 instead of 1000 so we did not need hang around for 2 hours in Yarra valley but no, too difficult. Seriously was each room to be filled between 1000and 1100 on a Sunday. Poor service. Just represents what Australians often accept despite high service prices. They couldn't even suggest other things to do in that free 2 hours that did not involve wine tasting. Poor service.
