I have recommended Pinetrees since I stayed there in the early 90’s! It was superb and the food excellent. It has a feeling like growing up in the 1950’s. I love the overall ambience of the Island.
Philip, Mosman, NSW
Lord Howe Island is an untouched paradise and unique setting. The atmosphere at Pinetrees Lodge is lovely and the staff are great, engaging and friendly. The food is sensational.
Philip, Kew, VIC
Everything about my stay on the island was a highlight, the Goat Cave, Ned’s Beach, the walks. I had a very pleasant stay at Pinetrees and the food was delicious and the staff great.
“5 Star all the way!!” You cannot improve on Pinetrees Lodge, the staff very friendly and helpful, comfortable accommodation, excellent food, great location and lots of history.
Goesecke, Woodville, SA
I really enjoyed the Mt Gower climb on Lord Howe Island and the birds, snorkelling, swimming, walks etc. I had a comfortable, social and friendly stay at Pinetrees Lodge and the food was outstanding.
The Island has beautiful scenery and walks to suit all levels of fitness. The highlight of my stay was riding a bike after 50 years! The excellent dining and friendly efficient staff at Pinetrees Lodge was exceptional.
Eric & Janet, Port Macquarie, NSW
The management of Pinetrees should be congratulated on making sure all guests leave with a smile on their face and a full tummy!
Rosemary & Arthur, Sussex, UK
The food and service at Pinetrees Lodge are better than excellence. The chefs are to be congratulated for the efficiency and quality of their meals. Everything exceeded our expectations.
John & Elvie, Glenbrook, NSW
Lord Howe is stunningly beautiful with a great variety of walks. Pinetrees Lodge is friendly, comfortable and if you want a place to lose yourself for a week this it! You have something precious here – an old world charm and ambience that is rarely found anywhere these days.
What a wonderful, relaxing break from the stresses of our normal world. The whole Pinetrees experience was wonderful and I will be back!
