The rooms are spacious, good lighting, breakfast included was nice & included scrambled eggs & bacon. I had no complaints with the hotel however, it's not in the most scenic area but only minutes from Sydney with a prettier view.

Pretty much your run of the mill hotel. Price was reasonable, the staff were friendly, and room was clean. Place is pretty dated, but some might just call it "Character". The continental breakfast exceeded our expectations though, fresh eggs (real eggs), fresh bacon(real bacon) and fresh potatoes (REAL POTATOES!). Also there is a McDonald's across the street.....

We arrived an hour early for check-in after only a couple of hours sleep, a very early airport arrival, and a five hour flight, plus the ferry ride from Vancouver so we were very tired. Even though we were so early a room was given to us by the receptionist who was fast, friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the...

I didn't stay at this property but would have liked to if I did not have to cancel my reservation. The receptionist, Elaine, was extremely pleasant and very helpful over the phone, when I had to cancel my upcoming reservation due to unforeseen circumstances. Customer service is so important these days, and Elaine gets 5 stars! If I am in...

I saw this hotel and read that there is an actual dog on the premise. At this time in our trip we were notified our dog got loose back home so my husband was a upset about it. I thought this would be a nice surprise to cheer him up. Luckily our dog was found after arriving at the hotel,...

Stayed here for a few days on a local business trip. It was very convenient and the service was good. The hotel is older, and has a museum smell that is a little obvious. Otherwise the pub and restaurant are very good, and the rates are attractive. Good choice for the area.

My room on the 3rd floor at the back was very pleasant - one of the nicer hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. The room smelled fresh and was completely renovated with up to date wall TV, comfortable bed and bedding, large room, and bathroom with new fixtures. There were some antique touches with hunting prints and an older...

I stay here every chance I get when traveling in the area. The place is getting a little tired, but for $89 a night, it is still reasonable.

We stayed for one night to catch a flight home after our vacation. Great proximity to the airport and a well stocked hot breakfast were added bonuses. This place definately has character! It's not fancy, but it was clean and charming! We especially loved the antique furnishings and fun to explore! The staff and resident mascot, John, were helpful and...

Our sincere apologies from our small family owned Inn. We are under going renovations throughout the Inn, as you even mentioned one of our upgrades with our new HDTV's. Our renovations do take time as we carefully take note of our valued customer reviews. A lot of our guests stay because we are a pet friendly Inn and love John,...
