VAT at the Bay?

By Pork Hunt 2 November 2011 29

I was looking at a Batemans Bay motel web site and came across the following:

“Standard Twin Room
Prices are per room.
Included in room price: 10 % VAT.”

Are they on drugs? What’s VAT? I’d like to stay there but I’m afraid they’ll want payment in Egyptian pounds or Albanian lek.

What’s Your opinion?

@ #15 Thanks for the suggestions qbngeek but I am familiar with all the places you mention.

The reason for going to the Bay is the camping and caravan show. An added bonus is that I’m meeting friends and getting on the turps…

Meh, wait for the Queanbeyan one, so much more worthwhile.

Maybe it’s the same person who keeps referring to “the council” in the thread about parking in the ACT.

Yeah, that’s me (shows my true colours?).

There is more than one who thinks we are part of NSW council system – way to show you aren’t a true Canberran!

Actually calling the Legislative Assembly, “the council” or “the shire council” is the sign of a true Canberran.

A true Canberran uses these terms with a sneer to let the ACT government know that they are simply nothing more than a glorified shire council (and a very inept one at that) and that they should get over their delusions of grandeur.

Nothing wrong with that. Canberra has heaps to do if you get off your arse.

Except a beach. So Canberra loses.

Ahh the beach, bluebottles, crabs, sharks, neverending wind, sunburn, sand in your vagina……………………its a great place!!

+100 It’s funny because it’s true.

First mistake: thinking about going to Batemans Bay in the first place.

Going to Batemans Bay vs spending the holidays in Canberra ? …. Hmm

Go to Eden, Wallaga, Bermagui or Tathra (or if it is more than a weekend go to Mallacoota or Gipsy Point) all beautiful places without the craptasticness of the Bay. I grew up on the South Coast (Ulladulla) and we stayed away from Batemans Bay as much as possible.

I also highly recommended camping in the Snowy Mountains at Blue Waterholes or Long Plain if you are looking to get out fo Canberra for a weekend.

I went to Blue Waterholes with some mates last year, and we were the only ones there. A truly fantastic place. Beats BB hands down.

Sand in my vagina, eh? I’ll have to consult with my wife about that one.

Well, yeah, there are beaches. But the bloody water is so cold for 364 days of the year that even (male) polar bears develop clenched scrotums when they go in the water. Female polar bears do the female equivalent.

Ah the Bay – spoilt tourist spot providing Canberra’s beach therapy – personally I keep going a little further south where it is a little more like the original south coast instead of a mini Canberra (especially in December holidays!)
