Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Communication by John was excellent and we found No 4 with no trouble. Unfortunately beyond Johns control was the inclement weather . We did manage to get out and about and saw the wind farm and had a walk. Beautiful area and views. We are older people and had no difficulty with the shower over the spa bath. Couldn’t fault the cleanliness of this suite. In fact I would have to say it is the cleanest place we have ever stayed in. Not a hair or particle of dust anywhere. Well done to hosts. Everything necessary is provided and unfortunately we missed out on the pub around the corner as it was closed Sunday and Monday. Surprisingly for us was the closure of supermarkets on a Sunday as coming from Queensland we didn’t expect this. Not complaining just surprised.

Good morning and thank you for your wonderful review. We will also pass on your words to our great cleaning crew who work hard. Like a lot of areas Albany suffers a lack of staff so some venues may be closed. We also are disappointed that Supermarkets are closed Sundays in much of Western Australia but there is the local IGA nearby open every day. Thank you for staying with us. Best wishes Lynette & John

AS SOOM AS WE OPENED THE DOOR TO SUITE 3 WE WERE VERY IMPRESSED, FROM THE VERY WELL EQUIPPED KITCHEN TO THE LOVELY CHIC BEDROOM AND BATHROOM. EVERYTHING WAS THOUHT OF AND WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN. GREAT LOCATION AND DINNER AT THE EARL ON SPENCER was just around the corner.Just a suggestion with a wider blind in the kitchen to stop early morning sun in the bedroom.

We stayed in Suite 2 and were blown away with the lovely room. Great owner who met us as my phone died on the drive down and I missed the message for the lovely and easy check in system. Can't fault the room. It has a lovely old-fashioned feel to it, which being English we miss often. Great Historic pub just a stumble away which also happens to be English themed. Check out? well there isn't one. Just pack your bags and go, couldn't be easier. We will definitely be back.

The apartments are well located and their heritage character has been retained in the furnishings and the renovations. We were pleased to be able to occupy the apartments earlier than the check-in time as we caught the morning plane from Perth. Why we couldn't give the apartment a higher rating was that heating is insufficient for the apartment. We were cold the whole time that we were there. We're glad we weren't staying during winter. The one reverse cycle air conditioner is insufficient to warm the the whole apartment. There needs to be an additional heater in the kitchen/dining and a ceiling fan in the bedroom/living area to prevent the warm air rising to the high ceiling. What this apartment lacked in the kitchen, that we found in many other apartments was alfoil, glad wrap & a paper towel, although there was olive oil, pepper & salt. Following up on a notice on the bench to contact the owners if there was anything not quite right- I advised that the kitchen light only had one out of 3 globes operational. The response was "we'll get the cleaners to check it out, which did not occur during our 3 night stay.

I am sorry that we did not respond to your review earlier as we seldom utilise Trip Advisor following their appalling behaviour in the Covid period. Regarding heating, as you are from a warmer climate it is not unusual to feel cool especially when you drive down in a warm car. The Daiken reverse cycle heating is quite sufficient to heat the apartment to 23-24 degrees. the bathroom has its own high performance heater plus heated towel rail. We also provide electric blankets plus spare blankets in the apartment. We suggest folk dress to the season. We are sorry 2 of the 4 globes in the kitchen were faulty. We had some difficulty obtaining the globes which had to come from Perth so it did not happen during your stay. There is a limit to what we provide in the kitchen due to differing requirements but as there are two supermarkets within 500 metres we are sure people can purchase items as they need them. We do provide tea, coffee, sugar etc. Regards Lynette & John

We had 3 nights in Unit 4 & could not have asked for anything more. It had everything required for a very pleasant stay. The "Earl of Spencer" next door had good food in a quirky building & the " Tandouri Indian on the next block was also good. Quiet, good parking & overall good value.

We stayed in Suite 4, a fully self-contained large suite with its own separate entrance. It was perfect for our few days exploring the awesome Albany area. Would definitely recommend this accommodation. The host, John, could not have been more helpful.
