A beautiful place- should be a secret!!
Delightful spot for a spell of “down” time. From the greeting at the dock to the farewells the staff were engaging and very friendly. Clean and very comfortable accommodation.Food delicious if slow service at times. Gin and wine advice from 18 yr old gap year students was amusing!Boating on the water, swimming and walking provided exercise and the dolphins, seals, stingrays and birds also greeted us!! The lookout walk was our greatest challenge- very steep but views over 360 degrees were stunning. Water taxi transfer across the Sound was also spectacular. Thank you

8/10 Very good

As soon as you arrive at BOMC you are greeted by a staff member and shown around. Our room was absolutely stunning, amazing views, comfy bed and pillows. Once we heard of the Peanut Slab challenge of course we can to do it. I loved the pool and hot tub. The staff were all friendly and the turn down service is definitely the best I’ve come across. Loved there was a free laundry service. The ONLY thing that we thought let it down was the food. Our meals were very average not what you would expect at a 5 star lodge.

8/10 Very good

Not sure about 5 star
Unique location accessible only by water taxi so getting charged an extra $200 for the privilege of getting to and from the hotel mildly amusing or if you’re remotely budget constrained a bit of a cheek. However service at the bight cafe venue was truly dreadful for a purportedly 5 star hotel. Being told to get your own sauce from the bottle rack wasn’t great (waitress could just as easily have brought it over rather than pointing to their location in a pretty aggressive manner) but the ‘manager’ of the day (English and red headed) seemed so much more interested in serving 2 young ladies their second bottle of champagne than a couple of hotel residents it felt plain rude. Check out was a farce with the duty manager attempting to charge for dinner and breakfast meals when we had booked half board And then telling us we didn’t understand before finally (bit of an argument ensued) taking the additional charges off the bill. If you do go there make sure the hotel includes dinner bed and breakfast (you are a captive audience so may as well)

We had the most wonderful 3 days away in paradise - the staff were fantastic and friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The food is exceptional with a highly skilled team of chefs who were happy to catering to individual dietary requirements. And thanks to Natalie and Elaine for their help to make our special day so wonderful too!
