Are there any pubs in town suitable for 4 older blokes to stay overnight before doing the rail trail.
Google is a great friend and so is wotif.com, bookings.com and hotels.com.
Yes there are 3 pubs and a motel in Mansfield. I stayed at the Commercial Hotel for a night but that was 40 years ago. These days I think the motel would be the best option.
Thanks, I shall check them out. There's no mention of them on the official GreatVictorianRailTrail.com website. The places mentioned are more upmarket types like BnBs. I definitely prefer the old pub atmosphere.
Hello! At the Delatite Hotel we have rooms with shared bathrooms (upstairs) that would be the perfect spot for you to start your rail trail holiday. If you need to leave a vehicle here in Mansfield whilst you ride we have a locked secure courtyard (off street) and we also have secure bicycle storage. Please check our webpage www.thedelatitehotel.com.au or call on 57752004
Thanks Dean. If we decide to drive down the day before we might just take you up on that offer.
I shall speak to the boys.
