We had continental breakfast each day as part of the package and found it met all our needs in regards to...

Good position to walk into town. Footpath all the way - just walk past the cows and their calves! Anywhere in Norfolk you need a hire-a-car. Did see mini-mokes which must be fairly new. However we travelled with 8 of us in a Tarargo and that was fine. The Govenors Lodge has a great restaurant - catering for breakfast. lunch...

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...
