It is a nice place to stay at a reasonable rate. It's very clean but appears to not have had any work done to it since 1978! It looks exactly the same as it would have in the 70's.
Sadly it also smells like it too. Despite the threats of charges of $500 if you smoke in your room, the smell of it is soaked into the walls and carpet almost as strongly as the day they banned it.
To me, it's ok for a one night stay at a pinch, bu I'll likely look elsewhere next time.

Staff were lovely on the check in desk and very helpful and the cabin was adequate for our stay.On a personal note, I found the double bed uncomfortable and the quilt too thin for the night time winter cold. The smoke alarm went off in the middle of the night for no reason but this was no ones fault.
