With a name like Scotland Island Lodge our expectations were of a rather large sprawling lodge with a large communal sitting room and extensive verandahs all round the building.Not so, this is a house converted and extended to allow 2 to 3 couples to stay. The wooden floors made it quite noisy and the only place we could congregate was... More

A special place to visit for a relaxing break in a natural bush setting, accessed via a small ferry from the 'mainland' or water taxi. Comfortable accommodation and an excellent breakfast. Breakfast is served on a covered terrace with views over the water and visiting tame Kookaburras and Parakeets. We were fortunate to be the only guests during our stay.... More

We had exclusive access to the lounge, which was great for chilling out in - tea/coffe/ water, homemade shortbread, movies, games etc Breakfasts on the deck where delightful - highly recommend the cheesy scrambled...

Overall it is a lovely B&B. A pretty island and a lovely relaxing weekend away. Went in summer, so the mozzies were bad at dusk. Just thinking I should have brought a mozzie plugin zapper, when I opened the drawer and found a packet. Owners thought of everything. Lovely comfortable bedroom with everything you could need.

“There are 3 different type of rooms, better to ask Rosemary which one is available. Next time I probably will select the room with private spa, just to try. However our room had a lovely private lounge with plenty of books, free movies etc (ideal for winter). Will try Yoga next time.”
