Pinetrees has just topped the TripAdvisor ranking of hotels on Lord Howe Island. We've come a long way in the last few years with our renovations, cookbook, lovely staff, friendly guests and great events. The number 1 ranking follows on from being named as one of the 'Top 25 Hotels in Australia' by TripAdvisor in January 2016.

Pinetrees Lodge is a national treasure! Staying on the island is special enough – the natural beauty, wildlife and swimming. But staying at Pinetrees Lodge is an additional delight – a wonderful guesthouse with a proud, unbroken history, wonderful food and a friendly but reliable good and welcoming staff. Too special for words!

It is hard to sum up the brilliance of Lord Howe Island in a few lines. It is an escape from reality and a holiday in paradise with beautiful beaches and walks with spectacular views. This is my twelfth stay at Pinetrees Lodge; it is a wonderful guesthouse with the friendliest staff. Thank you for the best 10 days of my year! See you next year!

Lord Howe Island is simply a great place for those who are interested in photography, birds and the natural environment. The reputation of Pinetrees Lodge for exceptional food was well upheld. Lord Howe Island certainly lived up to our expectations and went onto exceed them.

Lord Howe Island is a natural wonder! It surprised me how beautiful and rugged at the same time it is! A wonderland! If you’re into walking and trekking this is perfect. Pinetrees Lodge has the friendliest and helpful staff you can hope for. A very relaxed atmosphere and a perfect location.

Life’s got to be great when the biggest challenge you face as an “independent” traveller is getting sun cream on the middle of one’s back! Lord Howe Island and Pinetrees Lodge offer relaxation, fine food, exercise, adventure, magnificent natural beauty and there’s not too many places a novice can explore on a 3-wheeled bike and survive – its VERY safe! A wonderful holiday, thanks.

The food at Pinetrees Lodge was impeccable and our room perfect. There is nothing that can be improved on our stay. The peace and tranquillity or the Island and friendliness of the locals were a highlight.
Stephen & Sheryle, Townsville QLD

Staying at Pinetrees Lodge was a pleasurable experience for our daughter’s wedding. The whole Island has a welcoming atmosphere where push bikes help to keep us fit and ward off the extra kilos from the wonderful food!
Peter & Anne, Ballina NSW

We always enjoy staying at Pinetrees Lodge. The food is excellent – congratulations. And all the staff are most helpful, courteous and friendly. An excellent service provided by all. We love it!

This was our first visit to Lord Howe Island. Everyone told us it was going to be fantastic and it exceeded expectations. The natural beauty of the Island – the opportunity to explore so many different activities or just sit around and read a good book completely disconnects from the rest of the world was idyllic. We look forward to our return.
Bonnie, Mosman NSW

The fantastic service each day as well as happy and approachable staff. The staff made us comfortable and provided us with great ideas to explore the Island. An amazing Island experience and would love to visit each year. A family friendly place catering well to children which is wonderful.
Amanda & Simon, Glenbrook NSW
