An outstanding hotel, clean and modern stand alone units, easy parking. The staff are amazing, they work hard and long hours but always find a smile for you no matter how often you approach them. This includes the Restaurant and Café staff and the extremely competent Reception staff, who also make great coffee! We wish to return!

We stayed 3 nights, in a lovely little unit which was clean and fairly comfortable. Pillows were very thin and bed rather firm. But having said that we were happy with the room and the location but would give the restaurant a big miss. I suggest you take your own breakfast foods but noted that groceries in the supermarket are... More

We stayed three nights at this place, nice rooms great location. Very poor restaurant food was poorly prepared and in some cases inedible, they can't even make an omelette or scrambled eggs, eat at one of the many restaurants. Nice little bungalows and the tour company organised airport transfers and a hire car, if we returned to Norfolk Island we... More

The Governor's Lodge is an excellent place to stay. We stayed here for a week. It is situated about a ten minute walk from town, and quite a dark walk at night as there are no street lights on Norfolk, take a torch. Close to everything, great breakfast every morning. Helpful staff, clean, spacious and a small kitchen, large lounge... More

The accommodation is a large bungalow style with separate bedroom, lounge/TV room, dining, kitchenette, bathroom and a verandah. Our Unit, Bourke 3, was located down a small slope close... More

This is a great place to stay, close to the main shopping area, quiet and restful sleep. You don't have to do anything, the airport transfers, hire car were all well organised so you don't have to think just enjoy the relaxing surroundings. we will definitely be going back...

The Governor's Lodge is an excellent place to stay - we stayed for 7 nights in one of the 'Executive' lodges. It was quiet, clean, warm (gas-heating if needed) spacious and well-equipped - a comfortable lounge area, separate bedroom (king bed) with plenty of storage space, a small kitchen area with table/chairs and a good size bathroom with walk-in shower....

Very clean, light and airy lodge. Great staff especially the lovely Emily whose beautiful smile greeted us and who helped us with a rental car issue we encountered mid week. Well situated just on the edge of the township.

I was there for a tennis tournament, and I really couldn't fault it. The rooms were lovely, and they had plenty of space with lounge and built in wardrobe with shelving. Kitchen only had a microwave- would have liked a toaster. Bathroom was good and shower pressure was great. The $10 lunches were great and very popular. I loved the... More

I liked the individual cabins with living/kitchenette and separate bedroom. Basic furniture in living and bedroom - nothing fancy - but good enough. As it was cool at night, and first thing in the morning, I was glad of the gas heating in the room. Bathroom also nothing fancy, but clean. Staff at Governor's were pleasant and helpful, but be...
