This place reeks of charm & atmosphere. The very original rooms (it was rebuilt in the 1920s) and facilities are suitable & the showers hot. Make sure you have a beer at the bar as the staff are so friendly & efficient.

We tried the Mud Hut for Dinner but the Bistro was shut so we went to the Federal Palace. It was good country pub grub, good value for money though the choice was limited. There is not much in Richmond but this is worth trying...More
