We were looking forward to staying at this place but ended up very disappointed and actually cancelled the room we had booked for our return trip.
We first entered the bar - very rustic and the open fire was burning giving a lovely ambience. We were handed our room key and pointed to the direction of the staircase. The furniture and decor in the hallway was a bit of a shock - old, shabby and falling to bits. At the top of the stairs we entered our room and it was freezing. We tried to turn on the A/C heater and it did not work - flat batteries in the remote. In the bathroom the light above the sink was loose and not working and the toilet had no lid - broken off. After going downstairs and getting a new light bulb and batteries and being a handyman for five minutes all was good (Not what you expect when you are paying $185 a night for a hotel room). Breakfast was included in the room rate, self serve in a little alcove with no tables and chairs. One coffee plunger between 4 rooms so we had tea. Cereal and toast which we ate sitting on the end of our bed in our room. One of the other occupants asked for the kitchen to be restocked as there was no bread and hardly any cereal. The good thing about this place was the bar and restaurant.
