“Great B & B in Darwin”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Ideally situated 10 mins from airport in peaceful suburb about 10 mins from Darwin centre. Perfect B & B in every way. Spacious; well-equipped with added facility of pool use. The home produce for breakfast was outstanding and Joan and Simon's hospitality cannot be bettered.

Excellent place to stay. A lovely place situated just 10 minutes drive from Darwin. We were a bit hesitant at first as there were not many reviews on Lily Pad however we could not have asked for a nicer place, very spacious with the room decked out with all you need, fresh fruit, herbs and eggs galore with friendly advice never far away! Not to mention you have 3 types of pillows to choose from! A great place for some r&r and if you’re looking for something with a homely feel. My mum and I couldn't recommend it higher.

You cannot want for anything in this delightful accommodation. The proprietors have thought of everything. The garden surroundings give it a very restful atmosphere and provide fresh produce for meals. It is close to the airport and we were delighted to accept the offers of pickup on arrival and return when leaving. Although it is a little way from the city, buses are available within a very short walk. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Joan and Simon were the very best of hosts.

This is a great place to stay if you have a car, and want an oasis and tranquility. I stayed here with my daughter and sister-in-law for a primary school athletics event. The hosts were wonderful, and a source of great local knowledge. The accommodation was comfortable, and everything was provided that we could possibly need: the breakfast provisions were ample, and fresh, some of which came from the garden and their chickens. The pool was most welcome in the heat, and the air-conditioned room provided us with relief from the humidity which we weren't used to. We were loaned folding chairs, and an esky to use for a picnic, and our time at the athletics track which certainly made things much more comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend Lily Pad B&B to a couple or small family who will enjoy the hospitality of NT locals. We would definitley stay here again.

When we booked the Lily Pad we were a little apprehensive. All other places for 3 were way more expensive than the Lily Pad. This was forgotten when we arrived and saw how good it was with excellent hosts. Would definitely stay again and would recomend it to anyone.

This is an excellent B&B with just one guest room, on the ground floor of the owners' house. They are a retired nurse and a retired engineer and everything is as spick and span and works like it should, as you might expect. They have chooks, have a large vegetable garden from which you are welcome to take herbs, and keep bees. There is a pool which you essentially have for yourself, and a very well stocked kitchen in which it is quite possible to cook a decent meal. The breakfast provisions are exceptional: freshly laid eggs, bacon, honey from the hives, chopped fresh fruit, tomatoes It is a good choice for anyone with a car, as it's 20 minutes or so from town.
