B&B's is a very competitive market. So consumers are spoilt for choice and the accommodation needs to aim to be top class. Kallora Escape nearly makes it into the top class. We stayed 2 nights in the Jade Room and as others have said, it's a lovely room. The balcony is quite small and the view to the right is... More

My husband and I just stayed two nights at Kallora Retreat celebrating our anniversary. Talissa was a great host and her three course dinner fantastic. We also enjoyed a great breakfast each morning. It is a great base to see the stunning currumbin valley. Highlight for me was visiting the new Margaret Olley Studio recreated at Tweed Gallery in Murwillumbah.... More

Our first time at a b&b, we were pleasantly surprised! Talissa was a great host, amazing restaurant quality food, very clean rooms. Highlight was the viewing platform of an afternoon with a glass of wine looking over the beautiful valley. Very welcoming but not at all intrusive.

I can't recommend his place highly enough if want a weekend away from the crowds. Beautifully appointed rooms. The property is run by Talissa, who is incredibly warm and friendly, who also does a great job with the preparation and cooking of the meals. Recommend you have at least one meal served on your balcony.

A wonderful weekend getaway for those having a busy lifestyle. We stayed in the Aztec room. For us the major pluses were the lookout which gave an amazing view over the currumbin valley, and how clean and inviting the room was. The view from our room overlooks lovely flora while we had some harmless fauna come visit (A spider). All... More

Our only disappointment is that we only stayed one night. A gorgeous little retreat tucked away in a mini rain forest. A roaring log fire greeted us ( it was winter!) and a nice bubbling hot tub. The new owners are so friendly and helpful, even inviting us into their home to watch the feeding of the kookaburras. This is... More

We stayed a week at this B&B on top of Mt.Tomwin, close to the NSW border.The new owners Zack and Talissa Fardon have created a lookout platform , overlooking the dense rainforest. On a cold night a fire greets you in the comfortable guest lounge. My wife had a birthday and on our return from Byron Bay,we found a big... More

Loved the spa area too. surprisingly it was actually close to the... More

The host - Micheal was very friendly but discreet, he makes the breakfast each morning and there are several selections on the menu. The plate of fresh fruit pieces with yogurt was lovely each morning and Micheal cooks a good egg! The rooms are a decent size, the bathroom is very nice, no bath just shower. The bed was king...
