If the Frenchglen Hotel was anywhere is, you probably wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. Tiny rooms, poor beds, inadequate bathroom facilities and questionable cleanliness.
However, it's not "anywhere else". It's in a lovely and unique location in the middle of nowhere with all the attendant charm that attaches to such a place. This, and no other reason, is why you have to stay at the Frenchglen just once in your lifetime.
Other positive aspects - and others on here have written about them already - include the camaraderie amongst the guests and the excellent food eaten family-style all together.
Some find John to be a good host. We found him to be somewhat off-hand and occasionally surly.
I doubt we'll return. The Fields Motel is less than an hour away. The facilities there are better and Sandy does a better job at making guests feel welcome.
