“Enjoyable and supported holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

We recently spent 9 nights at Lorhiti Apartments. Deb and Pete who manage the establishment added to our holiday in many little ways, beginning with meeting us at the airport. They helped us organise and collect a meal first night as it was a public holiday and we had arrived well into the afternoon. They gave us all the advice we needed and checked all was fine quite regularly. We really enjoyed the peaceful setting of Lorhiti and decided it was just far enough up the hill to return from a bike ride without being exhausted!! We were most impressed by the trusting nature of the island, not worrying about locked doors and even having orders from the Top Shop delivered to the fridge. We had a busy (doing lots of island activities)but refreshing break at Lorhiti.

Even though it was a little cool (Mid May) it was still warm enough for swimming every day. The apartment was immaculately clean and well fitted out. There is a 5 minute walk to Ned's Beach on a private track. There is a five minute walk down the hill to the Post Office and Thompson's Store and another five minutes to the main part of the village with Joy's Shop which has more provisions for self-catering.
Deborah and Peter do a very good job as managers of the apartments, and are very friendly. Everything was well organised. The shuttle service to any of the restaurants works well. Then the restaurant drives you home. This was much appreciated because those unlit roads are very dark at night, even with a torch.

Room Tip: Our garden unit (No.1) was quite dark inside but the management said this was on the agenda to be re...

Wasn't sure what to expect when we booked Lorhiti, not knowing much about Lord Howe Island, but boy were in in for a delightful surprise. The setting is beautiful with ancient banyon trees, lovely gardens, and all necessary amenities. Pete and Deb were extraordinary hosts, giving great suggestions, arranging any activities we requested, and just being extremely kind, helpful and thoughtful - even down to the day room provided on the day of departure. Super clean grounds and rooms, accommodations comfy cozy and very well maintained. My husband and I had a wonderful time - Don't miss it!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong here - it's a very quiet place, and even though the rooms are attached al...

When we arrived Pete and Deb met us with smiles and made us feel relaxed and welcome immediately. We loved the quiet rainforrest setting that was well maintained with wild birds just metres from our door. The location of Lorhiti is fantastic, close to Ned's beach for swimming, snorkling and fish feeding and with access to many walks. All facities are well maintained. It was nice to have options of eating out or cooking our own meals. We had our own privacy, but everyone was so friendly and happy to have a chat in passing and share experiences. I want to go back.

Room Tip: book a garden unit

We had a wonderful week exploring Lord Howe Island!
We found 'Lorhiti' a very comfortable, peaceful and pretty place to stay. Great spot..just minutes away from Ned's Beach, great spot for snorkelling and swimming. Loads of fishes!
Short bike rode or walk , mostly flat to main town and lagoon.
The rooms were large, modern and clean, with all we required to make ourselves at home.
Loved the new lounge.
Debbie and Peter were very helpful and pleasant hosts with lots of good tips for making the most of the walks, tours, restaurants and everything worth knowing!
Great holiday! We are very happy to recommend Lorhiti as a great place to stay on Lord Howe.

Lord Howe island is paradise and Lorhiti Apartments compliments it perfectly. The apartments are fully self contained with quality appliances. Great if you like to prepare your own meals. The grounds are well kept (including the BBQ) and the rooms are clean and well presented. The onsite managers Deb & Peter are always helpful and willing to have a chat. The private track to Ned's Beach is just great. A 2 minute walk and you're at one of the most special beaches in the world. Lorhiti is also close to the Top Shop (fresh meat, fruit & veg) and several restaurants. Only one complaint.......I'm not there now!

The managers Deb and Peter were waiting for us when we got off the plane. They were very knowledgeable and were kind enough to show us briefly around the main areas of the Island. They even took us to the local store to get some supplies. The Apartment was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of room and in a great location to get down to the beach or into town.
