Conveniently located in town close to the (narrow gauge) railway station and centre of town. Nice large car park so dump the car and wander. The style of the hotel is rather nice, looks almost like you should still have cowboys riding past on horses.
The hotel has some nice touches, like free hot drinks and cookies all day and a reasonable if limited breakfast of waffles, breakfast sausages, egg, scones, yoghurts, muffins and toast. The room had the usual collection of amenities including a pod coffee machine.
Let down by some details, like coffee cups not cleared from the lounge, but otherwise generally very good, recommended.

It’s the little touches that make the General Palmer unique; freshly baked muffins each morning and Teddy Bears on every bed.
