We spent one night at Tusker Lodge. We received a very friendly welcome and were allowed access to our room early The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom was very dated and the room furnished with bits of mismatched furniture. However it was spotlessly clean and the refreshment tray was excellent. Not the best breakfast though, unfortunately.

Apart from hearing good things said about us and what we are trying to achieve here, it is always good to know what our guests have found to enjoy outside of the hotel. I will certainly add the bowling alley to our room information so that future... More

Stayed for three nights at Tusker Lodge, the room was a good size with a nice big bed, with all the things that you would expect in a hotel room. It was clean and tidy and value for money. It was a 5 minute walk to the harbour area with all the bars and restaurants. I would recommend to anyone.
