We really enjoyed our relaxing stay with Stewart and Lory. The room was clean and quiet and quite large. Breakfast was delicious and meeting the other guests made for interesting conversation and observations. We would go back. It is difficult for a handicapped person as even though I had checked, there were stairs to negotiate. The location is rather far... More

A charming home and the room was charming, clean and decorated very nice. Stayed in the big room and it had everything one needs from soap, extra blankets and towels, hair dryer, even the spacious bathroom had a tub and shower. Liked the set up of the room, Enter through french doors and the place was roomy and didn't feel... More

My wife and I and our little 16 month baby stayed here for 3 nights in May 2005. Lory was very friendly and even took the time to find some toys for our baby. The breakfast is very good. Lory prepares marvelous shakes and her baked breads and muffins are outstanding. Lory is a gracious hosts and was very helpful... More

We stayed here during September of 2005 which is approaching the end of the B&B season in Hilo. The B&B was great, breakfast was as described by many others, great. The fruits growing in the back yard were fabulous, my 2 year old enjoyed seeing the bananas, pineapple, oranges and jack fruit. If you stay here, check out the path... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. We did struggle to find it in the dark and the heavy rain, but we realised we should just have ignored the map and used the written directions. We stayed in the biggest room which is really well decorated. We had a sunken bath, separate shower, a large bed and a day... More

We have stayed at several B&B's on the Island as well as on the mainland. The Old Hawaiian is our favorite. We keep going back there--5 times in the past two years--because it is so peaceful and relaxing. The breakfasts are fabulous (fresh tropical fruit, smoothies and homemade pastries). They have an extensive variety of trees, flowers and fruits growing... More

My wife and I were quite happy with our stay at the Old Hawaiian B&B. We stayed in the Hawaiian room for two nights and woke every morning to a symphony of birds. Lots of bird activity going on in the morning! Lori was very nice and the breakfasts she made were awesome. Fresh fruit smoothies, hot banana bread and... More

Just returned from Hawaii and stayed 3 nights at this lovely B&B. My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary by spending 2 weeks on the big island. We rented a car and drove around the entire island, spending several nights at different locations. This B&B is wonderful! It is exceptionally clean! We stayed in the largest room, "the... More

The Old Hawaiian Bed & Breakfast is a most restful and pleasant place to stay. My parents and I spent four days and nights (January 15-19) in the Hawaiian Room. I just cannot say enough good things about the Bed & Breakfast nor the super hosts, Lory and Stewart. The breakfasts, to put it mildly, were awesome. Lory is one... More

It was more like staying in a New England Inn then a B&B. We had our own outside entrance, our own bathroom and an excellent breakfast. Each morning brought fresh fruit and often times a fruit that was new and unusual, two selections of hot breads and wonderful coffee. Our hostess, Lory was very helpful with information of local activities... More
