Enjoyable stay, only complaint was the odd cold shower. Excellent staff who were always helpful, friendly and very patient with me and my technology woes! It was in a very nice, quiet location. Great pool and spa facilities. We stayed 7 nights and would stay here again.

We had a week at the Gov's recently & so enjoyed our stay there, Staff are friendly, & helpful. accomadation is more than adequate. We found the 3 course menu at Bailey's ( their onsite restrauant )was the best value for dinner on the Island. A set menu, 3 course meal for $18.50

We visited here for a week in July 2016. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment/cabin which was quiet, had a heater and all things we needed to make our stay here very comfortable. The attached restaurant was an absolute delight. The food (they provided us breakfasts and evening meals) was excellent and the service was really great. The staff...

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...
