The hotel is not too big and is an old-style bungalow made into a hotel.
As soon as you enter the hotel's common room, you find yourself immersed in an old world charm with deep brown upholstered sofas and a fireplace. The wooden flooring as well as the room furniture continue in the same vein.
Once inside your room you will find that the basin (as with a couple of other tea bungalows I have visited) is outside the bathroom. The bathroom itself has a large-ish bath which has its own charm.
However, charm can only take a hotel so far. After a while the old-world charm gives way (unpleasantly) to a feeling of outdated-ness, not-so-pleasant beds and uncomfortable bathrooms. It is in need of urgent refurbishment. Not only the rooms but the reception area/ dining room, in short the entire place.
Also, the food available here is nothing spectacular.
If adequate capital is used in restoring and renovating this place, I am sure that it can become a tourist magnet.
