We had a lovely short break at Lord Howe Island and our choice of accommodation certainly helped. We were picked up from the airport by the proprietor, Gary and given an island fact-finding tour on the way to the lodge. Our rooms were spacious and well equipped, tidy and well maintained. We really enjoyed being able to sit on the verandah of the main block overlooking lush gardens and enjoy the various bird life that exists on the island - our one small criticism would be that it is next to the restaurant and on the nights the restaurant is open we would more than likely find people helping themselves to the table and chairs outside our room. Fine if you are not there but a bit annoying otherwise. A recommendation might be to put a sign up saying for residents use only, or something like that. However that never detracted from a very relaxing stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful - Gary was always on hand to take us to wherever we needed to get to but, of course, the best mode of transport is to hire a bike and cycle wherever you want to go. Island life is so relaxed that you can just leave your bikes wherever, go off and do your thing and come back and find your bikes still there where you left them. I would thoroughly recommend staying here (and of course visiting this beautiful little slice of heaven where life is lived the way we should all live it - relaxed, friendly and uncomplicated).
