I am very proud and very grateful to the amazing team here at Mornington Lodge. In my career spanning office work, the airlines and as a consultant - I have never encountered a staff as committed and willing to go the extra mile for each and every guest.

I probably do not tell them how much I value and appreciate them, and I am doing it now. I also recognise each and every client who thanks the girls for their work. Yes - they love the dogs and their work, however it is pretty cold and wet here at 6.30am mid winter ... day in day out.
