Comfortable, spacious cabin with most things you'll need for a week's stay; garden surrounds are attractive and very well kept. However, the kitchenette was inadequate with no bowls etc in which to heat meals in the microwave, no toaster, not even a cloth to wipe down the sink. The restaurant was very good, with an inexpensive dinner option that included...

I rang the Governor's Lodge direct for accommodation, transfers, airfares, hire car, packages etc. Were easier to deal with then our local travel agents.We enjoyed our 4 night stay in an executive cabin.

We may have been unlucky, we decided we would try the three course set meal they were offering for the Sunday night. On arriving at the restaurant we were seated and ordered drinks.

Governor's lodge (Govs in local parlance) is a well appointed facility with modern cabins, well maintained infrastructure (roads, gardens), friendly and helpful staff, fairly central (town centre is very spread out). Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has early evening set menu which is a cheap way to eat if on a budget. Our cabin was quiet...

The Governor's Lodge consists of clusters of small, individual cabins not unlike the ones seen in upmarket Australian caravan parks. The cabins have separate bedrooms and are adequately equipped with a kitchenette, TV and the expected furniture such as a lounge and a dining table and chairs. Cooling is provided by ceiling fans. There is also a small verandah with...
