We spent a lovely week staying at Governor's Lodge in January. The individual chalets are large and very comfortable. Love the TVs in the bedroom as well as living room especially while on holiday. The surrounding gardens are very pretty. The shopping centre is only a 10 minute walk away. The cafe is great for breakfast and lunch and Bailey's... More

Our stay at "Governor's" was delightful, great ambience, gardens beautifully tropical, units spotlessly clean, no insects, tea and coffee making facilities and supplies adequate, beds comfortable and our stay was all round peaceful. Wendy and Mia went overboard to help me acquire medication I had been unable to get in Sydney, also thanks to hospital pharmacist. Waiting and housekeeping staff... More

We stayed here for a week in mid-March as part of a group of 10. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff from pick-up at the airport, settling into these self-contained cabins and even dashing off to the shop for us because the clothes pegs had run out. The cabins were roomy with a separate lounge and bathroom. They... More

The villas were clean and serviced promptly. Staff were friendly without being over-bearing. The only complaint was that there was no toaster in the room?? Located in a handy "stroll into town" position and also near some fine restaurants. Baileys has cheap lunches and a nice restaurant and pleasant bar. The pool area is disappointing however with Emily Bay being... More

We have just spent a lovely week staying at Governor's Lodge. The individual chalets are large and very comfortable with TVs in the bedroom and living area and a good size bathroom. The surrounding gardens are very pretty and we enjoyed the pool and spa pool every day as well as the beach which is a five minute drive away.... More

We had a great week. Had been to Norfolk Is previously with a group. Enjoyed it both times. This time with a car part of our package we explored lots of places not seen previously. Meals at Baileys great. We like to self cater breakfast and no toaster.

My wife and I stayed at the Governor's Lodge Resort for a week. From the fabulous welcome received at arrival till our (regretful) departure nothing was a problem! The staff are all very friendly, courteous, cheerful and very helpful.

Definitely the place to stay on Norfolk Island. The little cottages are clean, tidy and really comfortable. The surrounding gardens really nice and pool/spa area great to relax around. The staff are very helpful and the restaurant (Baileys) onsite is fantastic. Well worth staying here.

I stayed at the Governors Lodge for 5 days and loved it. The accommodation is more like a small standalone villa with separate bedroom, lounge/dining, bathroom and a kitchenette and surrounded with private gardens. It was very quiet and peaceful which is always something I appreciate. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, I took a hire car as... More
