We had a great stay here at the Commodores Lodge. We had a wedding to go to next door at the Duke of Marlborough. It was a perfect spot to have a swim on an extremely hot day. We loved that we could take the Kyacks and bikes without having to ask. The accom interior was pleasant, a bit dated but not bad considering the location and proximity to everything. Would stay again.

Property was nice & clean, location was right on the water & central to everything. Property could do with a change of mattresses as they were very sold & hard to sleep on.
