Pinetrees is the ultimate place for relaxation. Top quality meals 4 times a day (lunch can be a delivered bbq anywhere on the island) . Sunsets over the lagoon and a drink every evening at the boat shed. Lovely friendly staff who seem to want you to enjoy everything that Lord Howe Island has to offer.

What can I say? Fabulous!!! The room we had was motel style-clean, very private and opening out front and back onto green lawns and gardens. The food was excellent, the staff ever-friendly and helpful. The surrounds were immaculately kept and clean and the boat shed was an idyllic place to watch the sunsets with friends and a cold one.

We had the best stay at Pinetrees lodge of any holidays. They provided excellent service for dinner lunch and tea all of which were tasty and well presented, Staff were helpful and friendly. Want a lift to the golf course or a picnic lunch? Nothing was too much trouble. Just like the fact there was an honesty bar at the... More

We loved Pinetrees and Lord Howe. Just what you need to recharge your batteries and truly escape the modern world. Love the fact that the meals are all there and so delicious and that we could have BBQ or picnics, all food delivered and picked up by Pinetrees, at secluded spots where all you could see was the beautiful view....

We are regulars here and love every minute. Great accommodation. Fabulous food. A magnificent setting. Always like coming home to family but all needs catered for. Whatever you like to do you can do it best on Lord Howe and staying at Pinetrees.

This holiday was exactly what we were looking for. There is no phone reception, no tv, no car, and you don't miss any of it. We travelled as a family of five, with a 1yr, 4yr and 5yr, the weather was early winter but it didn't hold us back from exploring every day. The beauty of the island is that... More

Lord Howe island is a place to decompress from the tensions of modern day life. No cell, no internet, very few cars and a policeman that tried to give me a ticket for not wearing e helmet on the old fashioned bicycle supplied by the hotel. Pinetrees lodge fits in well. Nothing fancy, plentiful food and friendly service. Cost needs... More

This place is amazing. Lord Howe Island alone is beyond beautiful, the best reefs I've ever seen wonderful mountains to hike and fantastic wildlife, marine and bird. But then there is this property. Run by a generational family, Dan I (I think that's how her name is spelled) is an amazing host. Not only are all meals included, they are... More

Arrived a day late due to flight cancellation due to severe cross winds in the island. Nevertheless our stay was redeemed by the fantastically helpful staff, great array of eating options (we stayed full board), reasonable rooms and well located positioning to see the whole island. The apartment rooms are getting a bit tried, although the main buildings are fine.... More

Guesthouse style accommodation, restaurant and recreation area. Our 7 night package gave us clean, comfortable accomm. in an "under the pines" room. Middle range for cost and space. Aged, but well maintained with quality linen. Very generous gourmet food all meals with take away lunch options for day outings; very flexible and friendly arrangements. Lunch salad choices amazing. Evening dinners... More
