A RETRO MOTEL - STRANGER THAN FICTION
It's owned by Diesel and Crème, a retro-Biker and other stop on Route 62, ostensibly modelled after America's Route 66. Only three bedrooms, one en-suite, a sitting room and a place to do your tea / coffee / microwave. Very old, deliberately, the furnishings and fittings. After dark, Barrydale's R62, closes down quite quickly.... the next place going east, 150 km, is Ladismith. You eat at a restaurant in 'town'.... they are good too. In contrast, the bedrooms are excellent, clean and actually upmarket. Good air-conditioning, hot blanket, quality bed linen.... and huge modern bathroom. Excellent, really fast Wi-Fi, No TV, No radio. There's no doubt I would stay there again.
