Stayed 5 nights with 2 kids in a 1 bdrm suite. Unable to fault pinetrees. Wonderful food, staff were friendly and relaxed, layout of the lodge was perfect, amenities were comfortable, rom was great for our family. We had an amazing time, LHI is so beautiful, but pinetrees put the icing on top. Thanks

We've just returned from an amazing experience - the Pinetrees Wilderness Week. We were impressed with the lodge facilities - a fresh, spacious room, comfortable lounge areas and the beautiful food that was served. We enjoyed the ability to grab a beer at the boat shed and to spread the drinking of our wine over a couple of meals. We... More

We booked a 5 night Bed and Breakfast package which apparently is not the norm. Most people book in for "full" accom (brekky, lunch, and dinner). We preferred the bed and brekky so we could try different restaurants each night and maybe talk to some locals etc. Dinner on the first night was part of the package and the food... More

We stayed at Pinetrees for a week. Delightful family owned Lodge. Stayed in One Bedroom Suite ( Room 21), good space for a couple and will be even better after refurbishment is completed. Our package was all inclusive and the food terrific and abundant! Admit I had concerns over the set meal times when booking but soon learnt it fitted... More

Going to Lord Howe island is a very special treat. We always stay at Pinetrees - it's a wonderful, family owned guesthouse style accom with lovely staff and great food. The island itself is stunning with plenty of outdoor adventures to explore. We enjoyed BBQ lunches each day in idyllic settings. The little kids slept under trees while we swam... More

We spent 4 days on Lord Howe just after Easter. I was a bit stressed beforehand - wondering what to pack for this time of year. The answer is: don't stress - just take clothes for walking, relaxing, and snorkeling and then maybe something a bit warmer for the evenings. Lord Howe is an extremely low stress place. No crowds...

We stayed at Pinetrees for a week. The staff are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. We had a problem with our unit and they were very willing to assist. The food is great. I would highly recommend the BBQ option. You nominate the location and an esky and picnic basket is delivered at lunch time. Sure, you still have... More

Accommodation, service and food was simply outstanding. Clean comfortable room, friendly helpful staff who always had a smile and food to die for (too good and too much!!). Absence of TV, radio, internet and mobile phones was brilliant - no annoying interruptions. Go to Lord Howe if you like walking, hiking, snorkling, swimming (with the fish), Kayaking, picnicking, or simply... More

No mobile phone. No TV. No radio. Yesterday's papers. Very limited access to the landline and the internet. No rubbish. Limited traffic. Warm water. Plenty of places to walk and sit and read. Friendly locals. Fantastic sunsets. That's Lord Howe. Excellent food. Excellent service. Excellent staff. That's Pinetrees. Together, the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle.A short runway...

My husband and I spend several nights here for our honeymoon in December 2014. The overall impression of the lodge is one of simple comfort and relaxation. Nothing fancy (you can stay at Capella for a more high-end experience), however, the location, amenities and everything else were outstanding. The highlights of our experience at Pinetrees were; the all inclusive food... More
