Our Pacific's Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Governor’s Lodge Queen Elizabeth Avenue
For years, the big block of land next to the Cheryl Tennis Club on Queen Elizabeth Avenue was occupied by the old Bailey family homestead, but relatively recently, the 12-acre property has been developed into a resort-style hotel which, while offering resort-style facilities and services, has succeeded in staying in keeping with Norfolk Island’s boutique colonial cottage style.

We like the way the old homestead has been developed into a modern restaurant and bar complex, while maintaining its historic character.  The marquee-style breakfast Café is a tasteful addition. We also like what we call the “tropical-cottage gardens” which surround the individual 1-bedroom lodge units which make up the accommodation component at Governor’s. The swimming pools and the conference centre complete the picture. 

Bailey’s Restaurant is open every day 7:00am to 9:00am for breakfast - for Italian-inspired dinner Bailey’s opens on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Bailey’s being closed 4 nights during the week is actually no hardship at all as there are plenty of restaurants on Norfolk Island which are well worth a visit – 2 of them are easy walking distance from Governor’s Lodge. Lunch is more or less a self-catering affair – try any of the many cafes in town, make use of the kitchenette in the room which includes a fridge, tea/coffee facility and a microwave oven or enjoy the hotel’s Café and Lounge Bar which is open daily except Sunday.

Guests staying at Governor’s Lodge have access to the Tennis Club next door as well as the Bowls Club in town and the Golf Club down at Kingston.
