  • Last night was mostly clear with amazing views. I was amazed tonight though when we were comparing our nearly black photos.When Isaw the photo of what was supposed to be myself in the porthole of the mock ship in the museum before the ghost tour. There wasn't anything but my reflection at the time. Look closer...
  • Thankyou so much to konstance and the amazing team at Q Station. I have never had a customer experience quite like this. The service, the team, everything about our stay with you and the wedding we attended was nothing short of Fantastic. If you ever want a business dedicated to making your day the best day possible, look no further. The accomodation and the accomodating service had a above and beyond feel to the whole experience. Special mentions to Mani and Daniella, Konstance the entire front office team and the F&B staff. You all made our day seamless. You were always there to lend a hand. You had the best attitudes. I am utterly blown away. If i could give 20 out of 10 I would!! We will definitely be back. The Goodwins xx
  • Yawn. Ghost tour was more talking than moving. 2.5 hrs to go in like 6 buildings. Host/ guide kept attempting to make it spooky by closing doors and standing in dark corners. If you are at least going to attempt to fake up some 👻 then use a little technology. Motion sensors, switches etc.
  • Nice free museum with information about Q Station. Nice little public beach - small, but quiet. Pretty views.
  • Accommodation looks nice. Free small museum with information. There is a bike hire station but price is quite expensive.
