Our welcome by Hosts Kathy and Greg was as warm as the coal-fired fires in the many small public rooms they have spent 17 years in restoring into their former glory in an old Inn dating back to ca 1879, situated at the confluence of the old roads descending from Mt Victoria into the western plains before Mitchell's Pass was constructed.
The restoration is admirable, inside and out. The subsequent interior decorations are somewhat dubious. The walls, especially downstairs, are covered with historical bric-a-brac; interesting but out of character with the original building.
Meals are variable. We did a Yulefest with a selection of lovely tender meats, and somewhat tacky baked potato and pumpkin, and soggy frozen vegetables! The entree was sea-food and wonderful; the pudding was doubtful. Breakfasts were big country-style and top class, as was our other dinner.
The cost was, I thought, very reasonable. ($650 per couple for 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast + drinks.)
