Guest Reviews

“Great choice as part of our honeymoon”

What a great place. A tremendous place to start the new year. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the owners were very helpful and friendly. From booking our trips we did to offering advice on a where we should visit around the area, they couldn't have been more helpful. Things couldn't have been better. The accommodation was just right. There was a small enough kitchen area when we wanted breakfast, but most of the time we ate out. Everything was clean and tidy. They even moved our washing under cover when it rained and we were out and about. Very thoughtful. We would highly recommend the Nautilus Lodge.

“Above and Beyond!”

Not only immaculate accommodation with extras like a choice of trim or whole milk, but excellent, friendly service freely given. I appreciated the willingness to print some documents for me at the office; many thanks.

“Amazing host/manager/owners”

I am still staying here, but already want to compliment the owners. They keep on surprising me in a positive way. So hospitable, friendly and great advice in what to do. Laundry service almost closed? No problem. When you get back you will find it in your room. Wow. Thanks.
