Like the town it is situated in, the Heemskirk is old and tired, catering very much for locals and workers from local mines. Accommodation is clean and better than basic but offers only two family units with kitchen facilities. There are no facilities for children's entertainment but In-house WiFi is very good l! House-keeping staff are very cheerful and helpful, indeed the entire staff are friendly and accommodating. Food is really very good, well priced and their Parmi night draws a crowd of locals as well.
DO NOT miss the Heritage museum it is truly amazing.
