Spent last week here. The property is in need of a face lift driving taps lamps that don't work - and the restaurant - well what can I say - 6 of us had dinner in Baileys on Saturday night - waitress poorly trained, food...More
This resort is exactly as depicted. It is clean quiet and has all the facilities as advertised. The staff and management were beyond exceptional in their attitude and response to requests. I would definitely recommend it as a quiet place for mature couples to rest...More
Governors Lodge units are big enough, comfortable bed , new TV, and a wonderful heater.
The marketing of this resort has a kitchenette, this is far from reality, supplied is a microwave & a kettle.
I emailed the reception before we arrived & asked for...More
This was our second 10 day holiday on Norfolk staying in the Governors Lodge. Stayed in the Deluxe Villas overlooking the valley behind the resort = highly recommended. Villa was spacious and very clean comprising lounge area, meals/kitchen area, large bedroom, a large bathroom with...More
the accommodation was good, the staff were very helpful, but the site lacked some amenities, such as toasters and hot plates in the room.
The cooked breakfast was delicious and the meals provided at night, when the restaurant was open were also very nice.

Hi. That is an excellent question. The beautiful Kingston area (beach area) is in the World Heritage Listed area for the convict ruins found in the same location. It is truly a spectacular place. As a consequence, you will not find accommodation terribly close to the beach and it is a lovely walk down to Kingston, but not such a lovely walk back :) (very steep). We (Govs) offer good quality modern hire cars at $55/day which now includes Mini Mokes if you want some real fun. You can arrange this after you arrive if you like and you might even take it easy for your arrival day and the next day so that after the half day tour that we include you will have a lay of the land in your mind. You might then take the car for the remaining 5 days - just a thought.
Happy to help and feel welcome to contact us directly if you have an specific requirements or questions.

Always an important question! The best swimming beach is at Emily Bay which is a short 4-5min drive down the hill. The main 'town' called Burnt Pine is actually in the centre of the island with the rest being residential/rural. Kingston is the World Heritage Listed area which is where you will find the majority of the convict ruins, golf course, administration services and museums PLUS the beautiful Emily Bay and other stunning areas. There is no accommodation in this area with the majority either in town (as is Gov's) or further out. We provide beach towels, snorkel gear, blankets and you can order a picnic basket if you like as well. Hope that all helps.
