6/10 Good

Average - with some ups and downs
The lodge is located, like many in Lord Howe Island, up a hill which requires hiring a bicycle or a 10 to 15 minute walk to get to the restaurants to eat or beaches to swim. There are no views from the rooms or the lodge, but they do have a very nice garden. The room was typical average Lord Howe basic / minimal - not unattractive, but very basic. It was generally clean. Like almost all accommodation on Lord Howe, there is no airconditioning, and given the constant high humidity on the island, staying in the room during the day is mostly unbearable. On the downside, the bathroom smelled of sewerage (septic tanks?), the basin constantly clogged up with water (did not drain), there was no facecloth provided, the TV signal was hopelessly fuzzy (though Youtube worked fine), and sound came in from the adjacent rooms, moreso than any other hotel I have ever stayed in. The accommodation would be very expensive compared to other accommodation of this standard in Australia ... but perhaps not so for Lord Howe, where everything is about 50% more than the mainland.

Beachcomber was perfect for my stay… a great little kitchenette to prepare easy meals if you want a quick brekkie before a hike… close to Ned’s… clean… Paul was always around to help with anything… would definitely stay again!

6/10 Good

The property was not good value for money. For the amount I paid for the room, I would have expected much better service. The rooms were not cleaned during my stay and guests are discouraged from asking for assistance from the single staff member. On the plus side, the rooms are large and cool and the garden is lovely.

4/10 Fair

The staff Paul was very helpful and kind. However, the facilities were not adequate and outdated. In the pandemic, the lodge's policy expressed the daily clean services would not be provided. Hence, the room became not fresh, not polished and not tidy. The policy threaten we needed to clean the bins, made room clean, otherwise additional cost would be charged. I believe I paid premium fees to stay in the lodge. Why should I perform a maid's service to stay there?

The room was clean and had everything we needed. It was a bit tricky to find staff if we needed something, but when we did they were great.
