Unparalleled Service.

I stayed at Dusky for work throughout the winter of 2021 up until the recent spring. Russell the manager was absolutely incredible.Proper legend. He went out of his way to help me, no request was ever too much and always made sure my time staying was to the utmost standard. All with a smile on his face. I work remotely and sometimes this spans time-zones, giving me strange hours. Russell was always so courteous to this fact and always made sure everything was ok with my work/life/staying schedule. The team he's put together are great; always friendly, happy to help and just to talk to in passing. All this with the uncertainty amid a pandemic. I cannot thank Russell enough. Kitchen is spacious, very clean and always had a great atmosphere with the other guests passing through, so all of the above with absolutely great value, there is no shadow of a doubt that I will be returning to stay; business or leisure. …

Above and beyond

Fantastic place, great service and beautiful views. Unfortunately we arrived late and left early so didn't get a chance to thank the staff who went out if their way to help. A minor mix up with the booking was met with fast, friendly service and an unexpected though greatly appreciated room upgrade. Thank you! Rooms were clean, showers hot, kitchen facilities great and ambience lovely.
