Great romantic getaway

This is our third stay at the Narrows! We stayed at the Wagtail pavilion, the big hot tub in the lounge area near the fire pit is always something I look forward to in my stay. The breakfast hamper is so generous and the you can borrow movies and games from the reception. I haven’t tried the saltwater pool since it was quite cold when we were there so I couldn’t comment on that. The hot water stopped on our check out day but the management was very helpful at trying to fix it. Would definitely stay again. :)

Beautiful location and helpful understanding staff

Staff were welcoming and the Pavillion was beautiful. We had a problem with hot water during our stay and due to circumstances it was unable to be fixed during our stay however the staff were very apologetic and allowed us the use of another Pavillion to shower after checkout. We were also compensated fairly for the inconvenience.
