We were relieved when we phoned to have the last room at this hotel as it was a busy time of year. The room itself was dated but adequate. There was however one big drawback which we were to find to our cost later that night. The room was situated at the far end of the hotel, first right at the bottom of some wooden stairs next to the restaurant. At every 20/30mins intervals a generator would power up and reverberate through the walls, it sounded like a tractor starting up every half an hour. This went on all night. We did complain at around 11.30 pm but we were stuck as there were no other rooms available. I am a light sleeper so had a terrioble night. We complained again at reception in the morning and they reduced the price by half without quibble so I guess they were aware of the problem. Unless you are a heavy sleeper, do not take this room!
Positives: The hotel is situated in a beautifull wooded area and the wild west style train next door is well worth a look. We didn't board it but it was great to see it chugging away in the distance, smoke billowing and hooter sounding. I have to say that the staff were very polite and curteous at all times and we had the best meal ever in our three week US holiday at the restaurant there. It was simply outstanding. So all in all I would recommend staying there - just heed my warning above!
