    Cheap but not cheerful”

    Check in was difficult mainly due to some confusion regarding the payment via Agoda. We were advised that the payment would be taken two days prior to our arrival but the receptionist could find no record and then proceeded to search , in vain, on her computer system . It was cheaper to book via the internet than to ring direct to the hotel. It needs to be understood that The Opal Inn is in a remote part of the country , where water is at a premium. The room was adequate for our needs but could not be considered palatial. The hotel serves both tourists and workers- so there is some car noise in the early hours of the morning . The hotel dining room is convenient for meals after a long day driving with guests receiving a discount voucher. We have stayed before and will do so again due to the location of the property.
