I take a group of adults with disabilities to the Elvis festival and for the past 5-6 years we have been staying at the Plainsman hotel during our stay. The staff are wonderful and kind and accommodate our needs perfectly. Everyone is so friendly and happy in their work which is just delightful. The plainsman is a wonderful place to stay and the pool is an extra bonus!

Very nice people including the lovely housekeeping ladies whose friendly personalities were so nice to be around. We had a big family group with 4 adjacent rooms fro the Elvis festival in January. The pool was a hit. I don't usually take time to write reviews so this is due to wanting to share with the staff what a difference a wonderful personality makes. The owners even lent their personal copy of THE DISH to us to watch!

The rooms (we upgraded to a Family room) are spacious. Upside: The room and bathrooms have been renovated and are very modern and stylish. Parking area is massive. Too cold to try the pool but it looked clean. Fantastic staff who are very friendly and helpful. Downside: Lack of pay TV channels and the wifi didn't work in our room (too far from the router?). Aircon (old reverse cycle) works well but is on the noisy side (need to turn TV up to hear it when the a/c kicks in).

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed our friendly service and renovated rooms. We are endeavouring to increase our WiFi signal to overcome the weakness in your room because of a large shady tree. Look for improvement. Safe travel, Steve & Marilyn.
