We booked a 'Luxury two bedroom self catering suite' for 2 nights in November 2012 as our between stop for our honeymoon.
Very clean and quality furnishings
Our negative points:
There was no washing machine just kitchen / cooking appliances.
We were sold a 2 bedroom suite - it was located at the end of the property, up the stairs and split into 2 places of accommodation. On the left was one bedroom, bathroom with the lounge and on the right was the other bedroom and bathroom. The lady that showed us our room asked if we would be using the other room, we did say no. When looking around the rooms, we saw the one bedroom with the lounge was over a couple of restaurants and we thought, well if it gets too noisy in the evening we can then move to the other bedroom on the quieter side.
After spending the our day out exploring Kynsna, we came back to find that our second room (one with no lounge) had been let out to another couple.
I found this quite rude as we had booked and paid for a two bedroom self catering suite. We spoke to the receptionist, explaining that we had booked a 2 bedroom property and now they have let it out and she replied, 'well you're not using it'.
This put a damper on our stay. So on this note, we wouldn't stay here again.
