Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

of the 3 hotels only one was in the town . This was a large hotel with a bar .
The other 2 hotels were in very rural settings and it would increase the experience if there was an honesty bar /facilities was offered to get soft drinks /hot drinks when returning from a long day riding .
