“Five Stars, in island terms”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

All rooms have a cosy feel, equipped with TV, ensuite, towels, drawers, fridge/freezer and some milk for cups of tea and coffee. The service is fantastic - both cleaning and admin staff. It wasn't any inconvenience that the reception was a few buildings away, why wouldn't you want to be out and about on a destination like Christmas Island? The VQ3 Lodge advertises free WiFi internet, but if you're on a ground floor room like I was then the network is effectively unuseable. Better reception can be had if you have a room upstairs or take your computer up but can still be fickle at the best of the times. However this is Christmas Island, not Sydney, and the fact that I can even get internet access on this remote place is a plus anyway and the intermittent connection didn't really bother me. Being right on the doorstep of natural forest the Lodge can be prone to ants, even if you don't have any food in the room. Keeping the doors shut at all times can feel comforting but somehow that didn't stop two great cockroaches infiltrating my room! But again, what do you expect? In any case I met another new wildlife species or two. Oh the aircon and fans are good too and sleeping was fine for me as there is little traffic outside to hear.
