We stayed 2 nights at Lily pily on our tour up the NSW and Queensland east coast and it was definitely a highlight. To start with the hosts, Jeanette and Bruce, are really nice people, very warm and friendly and can't do enough for you at all times. Breakfasts are fabulous, taken on the verandah, and the only positive in... More

The other reviewers have just about said it all. The hosts Jeanette and Bruce are consummate professionals, charming friendly but unobtrusive. We recently stayed for 6 nights for the Camp Creative week. Breakfast on the covered verandah every morning was delightful with exquisite views over the lush countryside and the Bellingen RIver- lots of bird life and we were able... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 delightful days at Lily Pily Country house. I hesitate to use the term B&B as this beautiful, architect- designed guesthouse is akin to a boutique hotel. Bruce and Jeanette were warm, convivial and generous hosts . The a la carte Breakfast served on the verandah was superb and would rival any Cosmopolitan café.... More

We recently spent a 3 day mini-break at the home of Jeannette and Bruce at Lily Pily Country House. We had the centre suite of the 3 suites available with a nice deck overlooking the river. As we were there in Winter, it was nice to have an air conditioner in the room, plus electric heater in the bathroom. We... More

We stayed with Jeanette and Bruce for 1 night in the middle of a 10 week trip and wished we had stayed longer. It was a real highlight. Our room was beautifully furnished with the most comfortable bed and spa bathroom. There is a lovely open plan lounge and decking looking out over gardens and the river. You don't really... More

We've just enjoyed our second visit to Lily Pily and loved it just as much as the first time. It really is a wonderful place - so quiet and peaceful, with beautiful gardens and great views over the Kalang River. Each room is wonderfully decorated, immaculately clean, very comfortable and has a private verandah overlooking the gardens and the river.... More

Bellingen was a convenient stop en route from Sydney to Melbourne and LilyPily was a beautiful oasis. After 5 weeks of travelling around Oz - staying in first class accommodation - this country house is one of the best places we stayed. Everything about our stay was quality. Jeannette and Bruce are very welcoming - after showing us to our... More

Having been recommended to visit Bellingen we were not disappointed in this beautiful town surrounded by magnificent countryside & to find Lily Pily was a hidden treasure. Our hosts Jeanette & Bruce made our stay very memorable, welcoming us with a glass of champagne on arrival after a long drive! Our room was beautifully furnished with a lovely balcony overlooking...
