Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice location. No hot water in both rooms that we booked. Asked other people who stayed and no one had hot water. Well priced rooms too. Good for family, couple, friends, solo

The Inn was empty but they still gave us the worst room there (room 24 please avoid!). It was dark, many bugs no fridge or couch. Manager kindly moved us to a better room but still wasn't the cleanest. I think it's just a bit of laziness from the staff! If you see dead bugs on the ceiling or walls...

I would have given this an average rating, but the mattress had springs coming through and I had trouble sleeping. It's priced low considering the area. Sheets were clean, shower was hot, but carpet was worn and dirty. Bed needed replacing badly. Food was fine and included. Staff friendly. Good location. I'd pay a bit more if you can and...

The glacier inn pub or the bear paw bar, had a friendly atmosphere and whilst attached to a backpacker style accommodation they served a nice meal. We had the rump steak which for $18 was a large serving that was delicious. A great place for a pub meal. The bar and wait staff were very friendly and offered up advice...

I stayed here one night as part of a tour group and found it fairly average. I believe it is recently under new management and the place has had some renovations. The rooms are very cold and the little heater takes hours to make any impact. The dorm rooms are cramped, and the baggage area is not practical and half...

Beds were comfortable and warm, the bathrooms clean - received a very friendly welcome from the manager and locals who showed us a great night. Would definitely recommend a visit and a beer in their bar

Many options for walks in the area and there are some awesome activities to do! (You can book at reception). Glow worms at night are just around the corner! Ask the owner for directions. In high...

I stayed here for a couple of nights in a dorm. The bed was comfortable and the place generally clean - I have no complaints there. All of the problems I had were fairly small but when they add up, they are extremely annoying. The room was cramped with a bunk-bed and two single-beds - with one of the single...

The man who I think is the owner was very friendly and helpful when I arrived, but another woman who was working at the reception was not as friendly or helpful at all. She seemed very confused when I asked for some bedsheets (they had left the previous occupant of the bed's sheets on it!) and for the wifi password....
