I purchased a Cudo voucher for a two night stay for my husband and I at Karriview Lodge and couldn't wait to get there. Upon arrival we were checked in - all okay there and shown to our room, which I believe was the Harry Padman 2. From there on it was all downhill! We were informed that the restaurant was closed for the days that we would be there, which was something we had not been andvised of beforehand. The room was most uninviting and totally lacking in any semblance of ambience with cheap furnishings, a balcony shared by three other rooms, a bathroom door which didn't close and the whole place smelling of disinfectant. On the plus side, however, we did receive a complimentary bottle of wine and my diet remained securely intact as the platter we received upon arrival consisted only of 1 piece of rolled up mortadella, a few diminutive slices of cheese and mini toasts, a tiny container of dip and 2 or 3 pickled veges, all presented on a small dinner plate. The 'continetal' breakfast, which was delivered to our door in the morning still failed to compromise my carefully maintained diet with it's meagre contents. On day 2 we packed our bags and checked out early without staying for the other night I had paid for. No questions were asked as to how our stay had been and an "okay, no problems" response was received from the yourng receptionist to whom I handed the keys. Such a shame as the location and grounds are quite loveley and their advertising looked and sounded first class. Perhaps it was the fact that I had purchased the stay through Cudo that we received this second class package?
