I have to agree with other reviewers who have covered most points. The main building does look good from the outside and the squeaky stairs add to atmosphere. The location is great being very close to the main shopping and other eateries. Also near is the beautifully restored Victor Harbor railway station where you can take vintage train trips on certain days. But that is where it ends!
There are great views from the upstairs verandah but the room was more than a bit ordinary. We were staying in the so-called new part which was built in 1952. What a disappointment! The builders of this section only included a heritage look facade on the lower front section - all the rest is just 1952 - except for the spa-bath which doesn't even have a hand rail never mind a glass surround. The bar fridge doubled as the table, a bar heater on the wall, a noisy and useless box air conditioner and a TV so little (13") and high up the wall and so far away that it wasn't worth having.
Have to agree with another reviewer who said the hotel needs a big makeover. The potential is fantastic. The other strange thing is that we were advised by locals that this was the best place in town!!!
