Governor's Lodge, Norfolk Island

 

Previous page: Where exactly is Norfolk Island?

 

We found it difficult to choose a place to stay on the island. Most places we found online appeared to be good and the reviews we found on Trip Advisor were pretty much all positive. A quick decision had to be made so we have chosen Governor's Lodge Resort Hotel. Here is a photo of their restaurant at the hotel.

We will stay at Governors Resort


We will have our own "stand alone" cottage surrounded by subtropical landscaped gardens of Norfolk Island pines, bananas, palms and hibiscus. Doesn't that sound dreamy. Certainly not the sort of holiday accommodation we are accustomed to. The hotel has a restaurant, a heated spa and a pool. We should have a king sized bed, a back verandah and a kitchenette. Wi-fi is available too. It sounds perfect for us.

The hotel is centrally located and we will receive complimentary airport transfers plus a complimentary half day tour whilst we are there.

 

Car hire on Norfolk Island

Although the island is not very big we will need a hire car to explore in. Our package deal includes a small older model automatic car. We are given 35 free kilometres per day . Bear in mind the island measures only 8km x 5km so it is not huge.

Norfolk Island tourist Information

Spacifica Travel have posted us a pile of brochures and maps to look through before we head over there. Judging by some of the photos in the brochures the place is very picturesque. Roads are narrow and bumpy and we have to abide by a speed limit of 50 km per hour but in some places that is reduced to 40 and 30 km per hour. We have to learn the "Norfolk Island wave" and perform this little gesture each time we meet another car on the roads over there. At all times we have to remember that cows and other livestock have right of way.
