I loved my stay at the lodge. The staff were all lovely and very friendly which made the stay even more special. The room (Loerie) was quiet, clean and comfortable and the electronic blankets were a great addition. The grounds were absolutely beautiful with great views of mountains and immaculate. gardens. The breakfast was plentiful, fresh and very tasty. I also appreciated the freshly cooked hot options of eggs, bacon etc. The location is also great within the village which allowed us to walk to diner each night and it was a quick drive to the Big Tree and also the National Park. I would highly recommend.

A few bugs to work out.
We stayed at The Village Lodge during a work/family trip. The staff were friendly and helpful and the property was well maintained on the outside. Inside the room, the finishes looked a bit tired/old, but overall in okay condition. The room seems to be in need of some upkeep. Our daughter slept in the bunk bed and woke up in the morning with bites all over her from what can only be bed bugs, as she was in a separate bed to us, and we were fine sleeping in the main bed. The staff did change the sheets for us the next day, but we didn't chance it to have her sleep in that bed again, so she slept in the main bed. Other than this buggy situation, the stay was not bad. Food options nearby are limited but with our busy schedules we ordered from the only place available, which was okay.
