Verified reviewvery good

Having stayed at The Whaling Station previously we were disappointed that they no longer served breakfast but we enjoyed breakfast at the golf club each morning. The staff were as helpful as ever and we also had use of the kitchen facilities and very comfortable lounge area. We would especially recommend staying there if you wanted to play golf as The Whaling Station is situated on the Goose Valley Golf Estate.
