We visited this hotel as part of a coach tour with 33 Australians and us 2 Brits. The hotel is situated in town and has a very friendly staff. They will organise a bag wash, dry and fold for a bag the size of a pillow case, for £15. Put in in the morning and is ready for collection that evening. Our room (27) was of an adequate size if the double bed was on its own. It was accompanied by a set of bunk beds which made the available space very small. The shower over the bath was very dificult to operate and resulted in a couple of near scalds before the minute movement between cold and very hot was managed. The walls of the hotel semed on the thin side so other guests were audible. Dinner was homely, tasty and plentiful. Breakfast was plentiful with copious amounts of berries and fruits. Tea and coffee were served in the residents lounge after dinner. Overall a nice clean hotel.
