This hotel has the Basil Faulty stamp.
This was a comfortable older style hotel that could be improved. Chair in room was so old the vinyl covering was peeling off. Our double bed was made with 2 single doonas. Why? We had to replace them with a double doona we found in the wardrobe. And why do hotels still dish up 14" TV''s hanging up high in the corner so you strain your neck in bed looking at them? Weekend breakfast not served till 9.00am which is quite late if you have a busy day planned. No friends are allowed in your room. Cant take drinks to your room from the bar.

Fine place to stay for one night
Two seniors on a road trip from California spent one night in this hotel. It is located further from town than we wanted to walk – more like 30-45 minutes (and it was raining) but it was not hard to drive into town and find parking. Room was comfortable; there is parking and our rate, which I did not think was exorbitant, included breakfast: there is continental buffet as well as hot food to order. Wi-fi worked fine but no USB ports. There is a bar open each night but no food service for lunch or dinner while we were there – we ate in town. No lift but I did see a sign that said they have a luggage lift.

It was good. But the wifi was weak. The food in the pub was ok, not great. But overall, good
