I have wondered all day whether to post this on the forum or just do a review.
GD is riding the Grand Fondo in September in Lorne. It coincides with me having a week off work so I thought I would take a few days and drive the Ocean Road etc and coincide my stay in Lorne with the race thing. Being just me a BnB makes perfect sense.
I emailed LorneView BnB and asked about accom for one and got this reply… (never said i was riding or there for the Amy ride)
>>Sorry but we are closed whenever there is a bike ride on. I have had bad
experiences with bike riders making bookings, then canceling all the time,
sometimes by email the night before, so it is easier just to be closed.<<
Is it just me or does it seem a bit biased? Do they also block out bookings for Pub to Pier? Are they really closed? Seems quite odd for the number one ranked BnB on TA to have such an attitude..
Isn't there a simple solution… charge the full rate on booking like all the others do? (BTW the others are all fully booked)
