Historic charm, courteous service, and excellent food and wine make up for the lack of modern conveniences at this classic Queenslander guest lodge. Accommodations consist of basic motel-style rooms, and one- and two-bedroom apartments. All have TVs with free cable channels, fridges, and microwaves; apartments have kitchens and lounge-rooms. Guestrooms have wired Internet access. Chef-owner Rob Flecker ensures guests are well fed, turning fresh regional produce into French-inspired
dishes. The lodge is a short stroll from numerous attractions and the city's main beach.
