Before booking at any establishment, I always read as many reviews as possible. Although there have been some really negative reviews about Baleens, I have seen many more positive reviews. The price was good so I booked and hoped for the best. I'm so glad that I did.From the moment we stepped through the door till the moment we left, everything was just perfect. A lovely fire was burning in the communal lounge area. All the staff we met throughout the weekend were so friendly and helpful. The decor throughout the hotel is lovely - beautiful furniture, bowls of unusual and beautiful works...

Great value for money, they are flexible and willing to accommodate your individual requests. I would only suggest to give an option of dinner even if pre booked for those guests who do not want to drive into town.

We've stayed at Baleens about 4 times now and have loved it every time. It's one of the most relaxed places ever. The staff are very friendly but super low-key. It's really good value for money and so relaxing with a family (even a toddler!), as there's plenty to keep everyone occupied and entertained (including a pool and well stocked games room), there are several different area to relax and socialise, a very reasonable honesty bar, and a tea and coffee station available. And being right across from the lagoon and beach it couldn't be more convenient. We love it!
