This is an old hotel situated in a small township with basic/few facilities.
I stayed two nights and was given a room on first floor with a shared balcony. The room had recently been refurbished to a good standard but was quite small. I suspect the room was mostly used for accomodating single travellors like myself but had a double bed. I believe couples would find the room too small. Apart from the bed and a cupboard for the tea/coffee facilities the room had no other furniture. The bathroom was a generous size. As I suspect most travellors are only staying one or two nights the room was adequate.
I ate dinner in the hotels "Goat" Cafe/bar and was good quality.
When I was there the glacier footways had been washed away by heavy rain. Not an uncommon event if you wanted to visit the face of the glacier book a guided trip in the village.
Note the Lake Matheson walk is mainly through woodland up and down the adjoining hillsides. Worth it for the views but not for the infirm.
