The SummerHills Retreat is located about five minutes drive from the town of Bangalow and about twenty five minutes drive to Byron Bay. Situated in a beautiful countryside setting in the Byron Bay hinterland, there is a main house and two smaller lodges built around an extensive outdoor living space including two barbecue areas and a good sized pool overlooking...

Fantastic location in the hills above Byron Bay with amazing views. Once we found the old road to Byron which skipped the traffic and made for a lovely drive to the coast it made the trip to the beach hassle free. Lovely room with outside accessed kitchen and bathroom. Beautifully equipped room (really comfy bed and good kitchen with all... More

Dear Shropslady, We thank you for writing a review to share with the TripAdvisor community. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and we loved meeting with you both as well. As you mentioned, the longer drive to Byron Bay along Old Bangalow Road is certainly the prettier route (25 minutes), however we do advise... More

Summerhills retreat is amazing! Great bush walks, and the service was always warm and friendly, they were always there to help us. Only thing is is that we thought it was close to Byron Bay because of what it says in the name when it's actually a 30 minute drive away. None the less was a really nice play to... More

There are many things that impressed me with Summer Hills Private Retreat… The attention to detail, not just the way I was made to feel welcomed and immediately at home away from home. The details went further than that – the way the rooms are made up, the fresh flowers on the table on my arrival, flooding the room with... More

What we really wanted was views, lots of space and a big spa bath! And something not too far from byron bay. And that’s what we got. Francesca suggested the forest cabin as it was their biggest cabin with their biggest spa. The cabin is elegant and modern (just renovated) with the most beautiful views overlooking the mountains and gorgeous... More

I stayed at SummerHills with my husband on July 21st. It was the first night of a wonderful 5-day cycling tour around the Byron Bay Hinterland which was a celebration of my 60th birthday. Francesca greeted us so warmly and provided us with all that we could possibly wish for after a day of peddling... A really lovely room with... More

Words can not express the wonderful time we had at SummerHills Retreat. From the champagne on arrival to the private out door spa and fantastic view. The team at SummerHills Retreat were obliging and nothing was ever a drama. The view is absolutely breath taking, as is the pool and spa. The large sprawling property was peaceful and a great...

Another perfect weekend away at SummerHills. We never get tired of the views and warm hospitality from Francesca - nothing is ever a problem, from extras in the room to booking a restaurant in town. We stayed in the self contained Cabana which is spacious and comfortable - even has its own open air spa bath! Very private and mini-bar... More
