Two versions, Rustic and Modern: Choose Carefully
Posted Aug 6, 2015
I was surprisingly placed in the "rustic" or "historic" section of the Inn. I was unaware of two versions. My setting was appropriate for backpakers and anyone who use hostels. The photos on Expedia do NOT match the section I was placed in. My room had two sets of bunkbeds and one double bed. My partner and I ordered a double bed and expected it to be private. The building is extremely old (hence, "historic") and is nostalgic of an American setting of a wildlife or fishing trip. Old floors had holes and decayed sections throughout the room; windows are decayed and curtains were old; paint was greatly chipped; and the table and armoire are very basic, worn, and rustic. There is NO heat, so it was very cold during our winter stay. The men's showers, WCs, and restroom are, again, very basic, but adequate for those who like to live in the wilderness. Two large living/familyroom-like shared areas with old furniture are conveniently provided.The hotel and restaurant staffers are very friendly. The adjacent restauant is charmingly rustic and cultural, as well as is the bar and all the eating areas inside and out. The food and service are excellent. Kangaroos, many parrot-family species, magpies, ducks and highly vocal kookaburras (reminiscent of Hollywood jungle movie sounds) are everywhere on the property, which added much outdoor charm.
