Wonderful place! The room was lovely, spacious, and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and filling and included homemade baked goods and fresh local fruits. Breakfasts were served on the lanai, where we met other guests and discussed our day's plans. Owner Lory was happy to share sightseeing tips and restaurant recommendations as well as answer any and all questions.

Great place to stay in Hilo. Reasonable price & good location. The service was perfect. The room is big & the bed was very comfortable. There is no AC in the room, but we did not feel it was necessary. The breakfast includes local fruits & homemade bread with coffee. It was suitable for my wife, but I personally prefer vegetables in the breakfast. It was not a problem preparing it by myself after purchasing the necessary vegetables in a local supermarket. This B&B is highly recommended for a couple with limited budget looking for a comfortable & quite location.

The grounds were beautiful and the breakfast was superb. Most of the tropical fruits that were part of the breakfast were grown on the well kept lawn and orchard in back of the house. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I highly recommend the Old Hawaiian B&B The quiet and peace experience did indeed seem like the "Old", less frantic, Hawaii experience.

This is such an amazing B&B! There is an excellent booklet with the best things to do in the area in your room. The B&B is on a beautiful property and within walking distance to a magical waterfall! The host makes a delicious vegan breakfast from fruits found on the property and other local produce. She is friendly and knowledgeable. I only regret my husband and I didn't stay here longer! We will definitely return in the future!

Lory and Stewart made us feel right at home at their B&B. The Sunset Room where we stayed was very comfortable and Lory made sure we had anything we needed. She generously accommodated our request for early morning coffee and her breakfasts were fabulous. Her homemade breads and muffins were delicious and we appreciated the effort she made to serve local fruits from her own trees on the property. Beautifully presented also. The B&B is in a convenient location for visiting all the sites in Hilo and the surrounding area. All in all a wonderful experience!

We enjoyed our stay at the B&B. Enjoyed the breakfasts and room we stayed in was beautiful. Location was very good and hostess very friendly. No A/C but evenings were not hot so not needed. Would highly recommend it.

Sunrise room was cozy and comfortable. Homemade breakfasts were great and beautifully presented. We really enjoyed the fruits and breads. Close proximity to lots of waterfalls and the town. Right next to Rainbow Falls! The bathroom door is louvered and doesn’t quite close and the top of the wall is open so if you want more privacy you should ask if another room has a different setup. We would stay again for sure though. Wonderful owners and there were lots of little touches that made it very welcoming. They thought of everything, even umbrellas and sunscreen.

Our host was very communicative, and accommodating. We were able to store our luggage as we were there early. Very close to both boiling pots and rainbow falls. Room was large, airy, bright with updated bathroom. Breakfast with papaya fruit bowl, eggs, yogurt and still-warm freshly baked goods is a phenomenal way to start your day. Great value and location. Will definitely stay here again!

We loved staying here and getting to know the area. The fresh breakfast was incredible and we really enjoyed our time. Lory was an incredible host, told us about Hilo, and helped us plan new activities when an original plan got rained out. We are so happy we ended up here.
