We have been home 2 weeks now and I thought this was the best time to write this review. On arrival at the island inn we were made most welcome by the staff . The 1st thoughts were not really what we quite expected but after about an hour we felt quite at home the hotel manager introduced her self to us and made us very welcome , as did the other guests who were around at the time ,the staff could not do enough for us they were all very polite and helpfull, the food was 5 star not one of the evening meals were repeated during our 2 week stay and the rooms were clean and fresh towels every day laid out for us i must mention the excellent service by Earl behind the bar and Michael who served us our meals The entertainment is limited but with the great company we kept, we certainly were not bored thanks to colin kath david and jacquie who made us feel so welcome on our arrival and later by kat and shirley, the beach is only 2 mins walk away and if you are a cricket lover the locals have a game every sunday at the waters edge it really was a holiday to remember thanks to all and the roundy roundy swimmer

Stayed March 2007

Once again yet another fantastic time at the Island Inn. I have just been reading the reviews and just want to return immediately. Chris & I stayed at the Island Inn in February and when we arrived everyone remembered us and it made us feel like we had arrived home.

If you have never stayed here - please try it, especially if you don't want to stay in a hospital type hotel! The Island Inn is small, but has staff that have big hearts. There is not one staff member that is not friendly.

The food is excellent - we never had a meal that wasn't cooked to perfection. Angela, Cyrilene (sorry if that's the wrong spelling), Anthony, Diane and all the others provide an excellent service at meal times.

Reception - Angela, Carol and Sharon - all of them are brilliant. They go out of their way to help and are such fun.

Finally the bar!!! Earl, Cain and our mate Michael - fantastic. They have become friends. Watch out for the cocktails though - they can knock you out.

This was our 4th time at the Island Inn and it most definitely won't be our last. Roll on February 2008.

  • Liked — Excellent beach close to hotel, near to everything yet far enough way for peace and quiet
  • Disliked — There is nothing I don't like about the Island Inn
  • Stayed March 2007, traveled as a couple
