A bit cold as the room had no AC & relied on radiator heater. Great cafe, coffee, brekky & ambiance were perfect.

There was nothing we didn't like at the White Island Rendezvous, this is the 4th time we have stayed there, twice in the Motel rooms and twice in the cabins. The cabins are our favorite, lots of space, clean & warm.

Loved the prompt service upon arrival. rooms were very spacious and had everything you require. Bed was comfortable and having Sky was an added bonus. Wasn't too far away from town so going for dinner ( if you didn't want to eat at the café on site ) was easy. Café for breakfast - WOW - What a choice and delicious.
