Frequently Asked Questions

Everyone has a few questions now and then... we think we've got them covered below.

Are you a foodie at heart? What you can expect at Barrakee

With sufficient notice we are able to cater for most dietary requirements.

Please inform us when making your booking if you have any special dietary requirements such as allergies, religion, health, or small toddlers for example, as late notice may lead to disappointment.

Barrakee provides breakfasts and evening meals for the duration of your visit. Lunch can be purchased at the lodge (prior arrangement necessary) or at the various food outlets on the mountain. There are no self-catering facilities at the lodge.

If you have special requirements such as religious, health, dietary or small toddlers for example, please discuss this with us prior to arrival and we will help find a solution.

Barrakee is fully licensed and we ask guests not to bring alcohol as it is a violation of this license. We carry a wide range of beverages including champagne, wines, beer, spirits, ciders and liqueurs at very competitive prices.

Non-drinkers may bring non-alcoholic wines to the lodge.

Breakfast is a full hot and cold buffet and is served between 7:30 and 8:30am in the dining room.

It typically includes a selection of the following; juices, tea, coffee, cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, croissants, bacon, eggs, sausages, grilled vegetables, baked beans and spaghetti.

Children eat at 6:00pm (2 courses) and adults eat at 7:00pm (3 courses).
What is for dinner? ... this is one of the chef's closely guarded secrets and is revealed daily on the notice board in the dining area. Guests eagerly look forward to the surprise and agree it is always worth the wait!

The level of cuisine is such that it is not possible to serve children’s meals at the same time as our adult meals. Children can upgrade to adult meals for an additional cost.

Our experience is that although some parents might be slightly concerned with children eating before the adults, it actually works very well. The kids become friends over their dinner sitting and often go off and play with their new friends afterwards, allowing the adults to enjoy their meals.

Prior notice (before guest arrival) is required if you wish to upgrade your children’s meals to ensure sufficient produce are catered.

Barrakee does not have a dress code and casual/informal wear is perfectly acceptable.

We do ask that guests refrain from frequenting the common areas barefoot for Occupational Health & Safety reasons.

We love celebrations at Barrakee!

We are happy to provide a cake for the occasion if we have sufficient notice. Please inform us when making your booking if you have a special event during your visit.
