          Hi, BeautifulBC-7. What would you like to know about this accommodation? Just wondering if there are any taxis that could take us into town from this location as we won't have a vehicle. We have a driver but he won't be on duty in the evening. Are most of the pubs and restaurants in the actual town? And is the pub in the hotel good? Live music? Thanks!
