I stayed here with a guest from England,in April 2013. having stayed the previous night at a bed and breakfast in Greenough, which was delightful, (and $15 cheaper!) it was like going from the sublime to the ridiculous.
It probably didn't help that when we arrived in the evening a raucous pre funeral party was taking place at the pub. my friend and I felt extremely vulnerable as at regular times throughout the night fights and arguments broke out right on the other side of our flimsy door that did not shut properly and looked as if at some time in the past had jemmied it open. There was an added little block of wood on the door, a very makeshift repair.
To give management their due they quickly refunded the money we had already paid for another two nights accommodation and they later offered us three free nights accommodation to be taken when we wished. However I have not wish to stay their again, the room was totally devoid of any character, indeed a prison cell would have been more interesting! There was only one towel each, no hangers in the wardrobe, packaged soap that looked as it had survived from the dark ages, no bed side tables, only one above the bed lamp worked, the sliding doors to the bathroom did not close properly so pulled one way you could see the person in the shower, pulled the other way you could see them on the toilet!
I have done several reviews for Tripadvisor and I think that I am a reasonable person when giving a review but this place was awful and it was an embarrassment for me to have taken my English friend there. My worse $110 ever spent.
