We booked a 2 night stay with a groupon and were looking forward to a special weekend walking, relaxing and enjoying nice food-thankfully the walking was great and we found a decent hotel in town to eat in on Saturday nigh otherwise the weekend would have been a disaster!! I would NOT recommend Sportsmans Inn to anyone!! The tiny bedroom was dirty with an old carpet, paint off walls, lumpy bed, holes in walls and hardly any space as the door opened right in front of the bed. The so called en suite was disgusting with rust and mould in the shower, flaking paint above sink and again so small!! Next time we will definitely be camping!! I have stayed in many places around the World and have been used to very basic accommodation but this is definitely the worst ever!!
On our first night we ate in the pub. I was looking forward to the slow cooked lamb but were warned against having this by a waitress who said other people had complained so instead opted for steak which altho cold was edible...unlike a mouldy tomato which was served with it!! (I discovered this when I turned the tomato upside down..not sure how the chef didn't see this!! As a result we found a great hotel in town to eat in on the second evening! Breakfast was basic and altho I would not normally like tinned tomatoes I was pleased these were served after my experience the night before! We chatted to the other guests who like us were tempted to leave after 1 night but ended up staying simply because we had paid in advance.
Hope no one else makes the same mistake as we did!!
