We went to Jonahs on Sunday for breakfast. The service and views are fantastic, and we can't fault it in anyway. The food was the disappointing component, and expensive for what you get. There is unlimited coffee/drinks which is a great concept and they come with a a mini croissant/scone and fruit salad plate - both are small and unimpressive....

Had the pleasure discovering this place which was previously a Relais & Châteaux property but wrongly left the group, during the last two of five days being stranded at Sydney airport due to bad weather in Lord Howe. Located on top of a peninsula this place offers fantastic views and a great sense of history and location. Welcome is like...

The busiest time for Jonah's - Easter long weekend. Had booked the room and brekky package. We arrived at 2pm to check in. Room was ready. The Terrace Bar was full and staff busy serving lunch at the restaurant so we opted for champagne and oysters in our room overlooking the pristine ocean. By 4pm, we managed to get a...

Jonah's is up high overlooking Whale Beach. Our daughter was married there in March.We could not have chosen a better location. It was a lunch time wedding which enabled everyone to enjoy the magnificent view! Many guests stayed there and we all had an ocean room and the rooms were beautifully appointed. We can't speak highly enough of the staff....

Mr Dehragodo, Well... what a bad experience to visit one of the best restaurants in Australia. Unfortunately... this was the worst experience I have ever had in my life. We chose Jonahs to celebrate my fathers 70th birthday... and such a special occasion it was suppose to be. OMG... I just wished we went to a local pizza restaurant. Being...

As this is 1 of 5 targeted reviews about the ‘same’ dining experience, I would like to ‘once again’ simply reiterate the facts: • There was NO booking for this table of 8 • We managed to cater for your table of 8 on a very busy Friday night at last minute • Our staff member did go over and...

Parking limited. Cost $430 3 courses for two. Food beautiful. Pretentious. Service poor. Staff friendly. Waited far too long between courses. After prompting, sides for the mains arrived more than half way through our main course. Wine ok. Paid too much for no more than two glasses in total. No refill of glasses . Dress code not enforced.

This hotel is amazing and an unexpected pleasure reached from a narrow road but overlooking the spectacular Whale Beach. Our family group arrived 15 minutes early for lunch on a busy Sunday but our table was ready as were the army of service staff. The cuisine is French and judging by the accents of the staff, they were all recruited...

We have just spent a night at Jonah's to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived to our departure the next day the staff proved to be welcoming, friendly and professional. The rooms are well appointed and private yet still providing endless views over Whale Beach. The food and wine were first class and the wait staff...

I couldn't fault the service, food and overall experience of this place. We booked the dinner, bed and breakfast package which i would highly recommend. The view from the room was amazing. Food was excellent, staff was a level above any other hotel I've experienced. We will definitely be back!

We arrived from Sydney airport early in the morning. We were told that check in wasn't until 14:00 (which is normal), the lady on reception was kind enough to give us a beach bag with towels & directions to a number of really nice beaches within a 3-5 minute drive from the hotel. We stayed in room 651, which is...
