We stayed only one night in one of the luxury king rooms but could have easily stayed much longer! The room is very large and even has room for a large lounge suite. The bathroom is quite large as well. The king bed was nice and comfortable to sleep on, and is very peaceful - no noise at all was... More

We stayed here in order to see the penguins. The room is outdated but toddler friendly and suits families. There are a lot of things that need to be freshened up but my little children really enjoy playground facilities. The owners were friendly and gave us a lot of information about the penguins.

Would recommend this for families, especially with children. It was comfortable, had easy parking, pleasant staff. Best for kids: a terrific playground in the back, with swings, a little house with "kitchen" (kids stove, food, etc., etc.), and a trampoline. Plus a bench for parents and grandparents to sit on while kids play.

The playground was great for the kids and the Central location was very convenient. We self catered and our room included a full size fridge, stove & microwave as... More

Our family spent 3 nights over Easter. We were greeted with enthusiasm with the owners asking about our family and suggesting ideas for our stay. The room was fantastic for what we were needing with two separate rooms with 2 single beds in the living area which also had a couch, dining table and chairs, kitchen area with full size... More

We stayed for 2 nights and loved it!! The owners were awesome and offered some great advice and information on local attractions. The rooms were clean and tidy, the beds were super comfortable and there is a little BBQ area with seating that we enjoyed both mornings for a bacon and eggs feast! We will certainly be back!!
