Freycinet Lodge Refurbishment Earns 4.5 Stars
24-Jul-2012 | Freycinet Lodge, located within the Freycinet National Park on Tasmania's East Coast, has completed an extensive refurbishment of its 10 Premier Suites, earning a 4.5 star rating by AAA.The cabins have been given a complete makeover, with new, larger granite bathrooms, a separate double spa bath overlooking the picturesque natural setting, new soft furnishings and updated modern conveniences. For the first time, these cabins will include a television and DVD player.
"While our guests are all attracted to Freycinet Lodge for the amazing surrounding environment and our unique location within the national park, some are looking for a few additional luxuries to compliment their nature-driven experience," Freycinet Lodge General Manager Meredith Churchill said.
"Our refurbishment of the Premier Cabins took this into account and has provided a few little extras that we know our guests are going to enjoy.
"But we still have our other 50 cabins in a variety of styles, including two-room cabins for families, to cater for guests wanting a more pared-back experience away from their everyday lives."
Ms Churchill said the refurbishment complimented the outstanding experience Freycinet Lodge had become well-known for, including award-winning dining at The Bay Restaurant featuring the best in local produce and wines and friendly and professional customer service.
"Freycinet Lodge also provides a gateway for visitors to experience the amazing natural environment of the Freycinet Peninsula by land, sea or air, including the world-renowned Wineglass Bay," she said.
