Late checkout too: we eventually dragged ourselves to the car just minutes before noon, and the owner didn't even bat an eyelid!

Great price for what looks and sounds a gorgeous place. Much classier than the last time I booked a romantic weekend for Scouse and I. The place looked and sounded great on the 'net, but...

When we arrived the owner gave us a 'welcome pack' of chocolate body paint and a feather. Amid various smutty remarks, she told us that her husband had filled the spa on the veranda of our cottage for us.

Aside from the fact that the pair of them probably had binoculars at the ready, I don't do tacky. We were out of there

Sounds like you ended up at a B&B run by Sid James!

hmmmmmm

I booked a weekend at a vineyard in the Yarra.

Shite room - worst I have ever seen. They did lie a bit about the view - so I used that evidence against them (I am normally quite even about these things : if I have stuffed up - I take it) but I rang reception and told them my pridicament - big anniversay.

We were upgraded to Premium Spa Room with kitchenette, lounge, you name it.

Not bad for the sum we paid. Infact, we ran out absolute winners.

It is always worth asking for an upgrade!

The weekend went from disappointing to splendid.

Cheers
