Just returned from Norfolk Island & had a lovely break staying in the Governor's Lodge. Spotlessly clean, lovely friendly staff & beautiful gardens, good food in restaurant, & easy walking distance to town. Would highly recommend if anyone was looking for accommodation in Norfolk.

No complaints about the entire facility. Comfortable double unit with easy access to the restaurant and all facilities. Well worth the stay. Baileys restaurant had good service and a varied menu. Nice pool area but rather cool for swimming in September.

We had 11 nights there in July. Norfolk had lots of shops and dining spots closed in July - we had not anticipated that. Bailey's, the on site restaurant, was also closed for a la carte meals - had a limited set menu for an hour or so - we skipped it. Breakfast finishes around 9ish. So we skipped that... More

We recently stayed in a comfortable cabin at this property. There was a small kitchenette with a microwave and jug but no toaster. Main problem we had was being able to get a table in the restaurant. First night after we arrived late Saturday afternoon we were told they were booked out. They did eventually find a table for us,... More

The unit was immaculate and the service from every single member of staff was impeccable. Thanks so much. It was handy to have not only Baileys Restaurant (which was excellent) but the lovely little snack bar for coffee and nibbles after a day out.
