After checking out the website, we booked the penthouse suite. The website shows only one building - the lovely old Ponsonby Postoffice, which has recently been fully renovated. From the website it seemed as if the penthouse suite (indeed all the accommodation) was in this heritage building. It was the only building to appear on the website so the assumption was a reasonable one.
After driving for four hours and locating Abaco on Jervois, to our huge dissapointment the property is located at least 300 metres from the Old Ponsonby Post Office and has nothing to do with that property whatsoever. They wanted to charge us $269 for what is a one bedroom motel room - hardly a penthouse suite!
We felt very misled by the website and told the proprietor that we would not stay. We inspected the room, which was clean and tidy enough, but was not what we were led to expect and expensive in the extreme for what was just a motel room.
We did not stay.
