Booked and paid in advance for cabaret evening and accommodation; reconfirmed booking day before arrival.
Drove 100km to venue and booked in.
Later on inquiring when cabaret started was told “you’re the only ones booked in and so cabaret cancelled”
After owner (Brett Marvelly) contacted offered free meal, take it or leave it– left it and drove 100km back home.
Other reviews and social media comment disclose our experience not unique.
“Period Character” should not be confused with old and tatty.
False airs and graces do not replace honest genuine service.
