“Disappointing after a day in the mountains”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2007

So disappointing - we walked 18 miles through the mountains on a hot day and passed three signs telling us about great home-cooked food served all day.

We were offered soup and sandwiches which is really not what you want after a long days walking. It was not possible to negotiate anything else, even a plate full of chips with the sandwiches. This is in a place miles from anywhere else. We ended up buying some pasta and sauce from the adjacent shop and sneaking into the kitchen to cook it like naughty schoolkids.

In fairness the room was immaculately clean, and the Guinness was OK.

I cannot account for the glowing review in Fodors. The Inn did not at all resemble this description. They could not provide hiking information. The food consisted of warmed over precooked meats and canned vegetables and the pub smelled strongly of mold. We do not recommend this hotel. There are much better places for the same price or less!
