Super clean rooms, cosy, warm & the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The hospitality at the bar for drinks & the home cooked meals were better than most restaurants in the area. Tony & Wendi will make your stay........ Do yourself a favour !! Very handy location walking distance to town.
