You rarely know where is good to stay in your home town for obvious reasons...you have a house there! Joining in on a drawing project, visiting lots of local businesses including hotels and back packers is a brilliant way to find out the best spots.... Hamilton Lodge Back-packers is a gem! What a quirky, friendly, welcoming, cool place! - It made me want to go for a night away in my home town! I would recommend this place to ANYONE! - As for drawing here... there's a quirky still-life composition in every direction you look and with a canopied seating area leading to a perfect little garden, there was heaps of inspiration, the workshop flew by!
