“Tired and old--thats the hotel not us”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2010

Booked a one nighter in a family room at this place after looking at its ad in the AA book. It was the only room in town by the time we got there and we now know why. Its up for sale--has been for a while it seems--and theres no investment in the place. We had a downstairs room nearest the road--which is noisy. It did have double access to a garden and plenty of chairs and two tables but the interior was dated. If you are into colour co-ordinates this isnt for you--think green pillowcases, lemon sheets and bright red check blanket and youve got it.
As the last room in town you might check in--we wouldnt! But it does have free internet!
