Very helpful manager and staff at the Governors Lodge Hotel. Easy walk to restaurants and attractive grounds and pool area. Our accommodation was serviced daily and was always to our satisfaction. New Years Eve dinner and entertainment was wonderful - dinner was Superb! All tours were expertly organised by the hotel - nothing was too much trouble. We didn't take... More

Very friendly and helpful staff at the Governor's Lodge. Cabin well maintained and great outlook. Good information about Island provided. Pick up/drop off at accommodation by Tour Operators was handy.

We found the hotel very good. Enjoyed having our own cottage, the bed was very comfortable and no-one near us made any undue noise. The staff were always most helpful and obliging. We didn't hire a car but found the hotel's "taxi" service extremely good, someone was always available to take us around. As it was the Food Festival Week... More

I have just returned from a week at Governors Lodge, with my 15 year old son and was really impressed with the quality. It was the cleanest place I have ever stayed in. Everything in the unit was spotless! The staff couldn't have been more helpful, going the extra mile to help us out and offer advice. We ate at... More

This was a very comfortable hotel and in a quiet location. The hotel staff were always very helpful and professional. Though our apartment had a kitchenette with microwave there were no kitchen utensils and no dishes or containers for using in the microwave. Though a couple of plates, cups and glasses were provided. So we ate out for dinner each... More

We stayed over Christmas - the staff couldn't have done more to make our stay memorable. We will be coming back - will definitely choose "Govs" again. The Christmas lunch had too much food!! Loved the breakfasts each morning.

We have just spent a week on the Island and the staff at Governor's Lodge couldn't have been more welcoming. From the friendly smiling service from Bronny at breakfast to the great service from Wendy and the other staff at the front desk made our stay a pleasure. Rooms are clean and well maintained and the Lodge is central to... More
