OK - there is nowhere else to stay if you want to stop half way up the Dempster Highway, but our experience of this hotel was really positive. The room we had was plenty large enough and more fully furnished than many other hotel rooms we have been in recently (queen bed, two easy chairs, comfy armchair, couple of coffee tables, desk and TV as well as stocked ensuite bathroom). Admittedly I don't think it had been redecorated this year, but we found everything clean and comfortable, staff helpful, pleasant and, indeed, cheerful and chatty. Well done to the staff of this remotest of hotels - we really didn't feel that they traded on their monopoly in any unreasonable way at all.
The restaurant service was impressive, especially considering it's location, a good selection of food was available and helpings were very generous indeed. Knowing that this hotel is there on Eagle Plains I would have no hesitation in travelling the Dempster Highway again.
