What a terrible experience. Other guests were appalled at the way I was treated. Apparently two ways to book this accommodation. Website Kathys Bnb. Or AirBnb. Soon found out if you book on airBnb Kathy ain’t too happy as she has to wait for her money (as she told me ). Hence I am a spoken to abruptly. Told off for not waiting in her lounge for the delivery of my pizza. Room had junk and an unused bar that looked awful The room had no atmosphere and was so far from homely. It cost me $170 for one night. The pillows were paper thin. The sheets cheap. Breakfast was provided I joined them ( Kathy and a couple in another room who had booked through the Kathys website ). I was instructed by Kathy to take the breakfast items from continental breakfast. Couple were having bacon and eggs I asked about the provision of bacon and eggs to which Kathy replied ‘ you don’t get that as you booked through air bnb and I have to wait for my money ‘ !!!! Was she serious. Yes. Further on she continued to be rude and ignore me infront of the other guests who acknowledged my concerns with her attitude. I discussed with her on leaving only to be told I was rude and my behaviour was not acceptable. What ??!! I had ordered the pizza and apparently that was a disruptive event I had not sat down with the other guests on my arrival but I didn’t even know they were guests till the morning as I thought they were Kathys friends. I had a shocking sleep and had to sms Kathy to postpone my breakfast until 7 am instead of 6 am as previously arranged That was apparently one of her concerns with me. She was cross at me for what seemed like the simple fact I had booked through air bnb Kathy - you need to take it off Airbnb if you don’t like their system You also need to be mindful of how your attitude may impact on people…
Very well run with friendly and entertaining hosts. The place is in a green spot on East Side, within walking distance of the town with full amenities. Comfortable well equipped room and bathroom facilities. Tasty cooked breakfast. Kathy went out of her way to provide a memorable stay. I was only there for a couple of days for a funeral or would have used the pool and said hello to the chickens.
Kathy and Karl’s place is a home away from home. They have thought of everything that you could need and can provide an abundance of great tips while on holiday. Thank you for having us stay in your home, it was a pleasure to meet you both.
Stayed for 7 nights at Kathy's B&B and could not have been more satisfied. Made to feel very much at home. Loved our long chats over brekkie with both Kathy and Karl. Would recommend Kathy's place to anyone staying in Alice.
Kathy's B&B is a welcoming place that treats you like family. Kathy and her husband Carl have opened their home to guests, converting their grown sons' bedrooms into a B&B. The breakfast is hardy and tasty and the conversation engaging. It will serve you well.
