We booked two nights in the studio apartment at the Gables. The acommodation was perfect, quiet beautiful location, wonderful gardens, the room was clean and furnished perfectly. The Breakfast was scrumptous.When we checked in we offered to pay cash, but the owner said she would prefer a online deposit. We completeled the online banking transaction through our small rural building society with our mobile and thought all was settled. Unfortunately confirmation had not gone through to the owners account by checkout time and she became very rude and threatened to call the police. The owner demanded to see a print out of the transaction. We explained that we did not pack a printer and attempted to show her the transaction on our phone screen, but she refused and continued to threaten us with calling the police. All in all this nearly spoilt what had been a wonderful weekend in a great bed and breakfast. I do hope the owner learns from the experience and we are still waiting an apology.
Although compact, this accommodation is probably the most stunningly located on Lake Macquarie, being right on the water's edge. We would stay there again in preference to other properties on offer within a 25km radius.
