Room was okay for a one night stop over. The penguin viewing was very disappointing the staff could have been more attentive

You can see penguins, sometimes if you are lucky, wombats roaming around just outside the property. The place also provides a night time tour to search fornthe penguins and was kind enough to provide torches for those who want to stay on looking for the penguins throughout the night. Staff was friendly and helpful as well.

This property is very nice. It’s fresh & clean, totally self contained and has a lovely restaurant on site. We had an upstairs unit with a private sunny deck facing a beautiful sea view. In the evening we were able to walk across the lawn to the beach front to see the fairy penguins coming ashore. Altogether a very enjoyable stay.
