Lovely rooms in a superb location with excellent meals for the nights you choose to eat in. And then there's Heidi - a King Island local that is not only a wonderful host but also the best travel guide you'll find for your time on the island. Loved every minute of our time there. Wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else... More

Crayfish and good wine at Heidi's restaurant for my birthday treat was a great start and the pudding deserved a second helping.
