        Fantastic location, place and staff”

        Lord Howe Island has been on my list to visit for a long time. I finally made it. The Milky Way hotel is a fantastic place to stay. The first greeting at the airport by the pickup staff (included) was warm and genuine. I was then given a short orientation of the town and finally taken to my unit. The staff didn't just drop me off they explained what was in the unit (free eggs, bread, milk and bacon for the first breakfast) as well as what was available on the island. As this was winter, limited activities and open restaurants was available, however what was unexpected was that as part of the stay, the staff would come around each morning, see what I wanted to do and then book it for me, including restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel to stay at.

        Staff were always helpful, with efficient airport transfer, restaurant drop offs and helpful suggestions on daily activities. The onsite restaurant was the best meal we had on the island. Villas are not luxury accomodation, but do the job and are clean and spotless, with all the necessary items for a self contained stay.
