We stayed here for three nights and loved every moment. Most of the time you would find me by pool area either sunbathing or in the spa. You could tell Governor's Lodge took pride in their resort as the gardens were kept beautiful and they had a huge orange tree were you could pick up the most delicious oranges from... More

Our unit had the bedroom separate from the lounge which made it more like a holiday home than a hotel room. It was an easy walk to town (about 10 minutes) and a much longer, but still possible, walk down to the wharf and ruins at Kingston. We really enjoyed the walk from the top of Mt Pitt to the... More

This island is an unspoiled and pristine getaway. Our only complaint was that our time went too quickly. If we get a next time I would book for 2 weeks as we love the history and architecture and there's plenty of that.

Norfolk Island is a beautiful unspoilt destination. The Governors Lodge consists of self contained cabins set in quiet peaceful gardens. The cabins are roomy, clean and very comfortable. The grounds are well maintained and include pool, spa, guests laundry, cafe and restaurant. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a short drive or walk into Burnt Pine township. Wifi... More

Clean and nicely presented on arrival. Hotel staff were helpful and pleasant. Burnt Pine shopping precinct is a short walk or drive from Governors Lodge, along with all the local clubs and restaurants.

Norfolk Island is a beautiful, unspoilt paradise. The Governor's Lodge accommodation (self contained cabin) is roomy, clean and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and eager to please. Wi-fi is very slow however and you are better off using the PCs located in the Reception area. Food in the main restaurant is adequate and breakfast is basic

We stayed seven nights. The self contained cabin was roomy with comfortable bed and good shower. The continental breakfast was basic but adequate. Bailey's restaurant was excellent. Good food, very reasonable prices and friendly staff. Governor's Lodge is a 10 minute walk to Burnt Pine township.

Our bungalow was very comfortable with lounge, dining room, kitchenette, large bathroom and spacious bedroom with king bed. Breakfast was OK but, due to supply problems, there was a shortage of fresh fruit. Overall very happy.

We spent one night here as our preferred accommodation (The Tin Sheds) was full that night. We had a lovely cabin - separate living area and bedroom - on Darling Crescent with a beautiful view overlooking a green valley. Our cabin was away from the restaurant and reception area and was quiet. The cabins closer to the common areas (and... More
