Although the whole site was very dated the meals, accommodation and service was of an average standard. If anyone else is considering doing a 2 day motorcycle ride around the east coast this is the perfect place for an overnight stop so long as you are not looking for luxurious top end accommodation. Even though the prices seem high for what you get I would definitely stay again owing to the location.
