Shane and Ange made us very welcome. I would agree the rooms are not luxury but the deal was cheap and it is a remote island location so wasn't expecting 5*. As they have only taken over this year there were some teething problems such as matches but that was easily remedied by asking for some. The breakfast was basic but the dinner was delicious as was the hospitality after when we were introduced to some yummy cocktails on the house. Good luck Shane and Ange with your Lodge and thanks again.
