12 May 12 I booked us in after reading about the hotel in Ulysses magazine. We rode in late afternoon to be greeted by Martin who showed us around so we could park our bikes undercover out back out of sight. Wow what a place! Rooms are great clean spacious. Gift shop bar tours kitchen bathrooms laundry everything you could want. Martin offered us a beer. If its 5 o'clock you know Martin will be having a beer, good stuff. We went next door to Johns for tea they give Radeka guests a price break. Great service good food. Back for few more frosties. Met Bob the Kwiw Dingo fence man good stories. This is a great part of Australia, a unique hotel, well priced, a fabulous host, and great stories. I highly recommend you stay with Martin and his crew, Good Times!
