“Paradise”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We have recently returned from our 15 th holiday on lord Howe island. My first trip was in 1966 arriving for my honeymoon on a flying boat. There followed a busy life and so much of the world to see that we did not return to this incredibly beautiful island until 2001. Not that much had changed and mainly for the better and we have returned almost every year ever since. We have stayed at 3 different lodges but once we experienced Lorhiti we would never stay anywhere else - well we would if we had to but not by choice. Our stays are generally a fortnight long although I stayed a month once recovering from surgery ( the peace, sea water and relaxation did wonders for recovery). Personally we feel a week is too short but we are lucky to be able to spend more time. We often come with friends and have brought our adult children. I thought they might find it too quiet with no street lighting or much night time entertainment. They have all returned a second time and rate it as the best holiday ever.

Whilst Lorhiti is situated up a hill it is worth the slight extra effort. It has only 6 beautifully appointed suits which are spotless and recently tastefully refurbished. The suites are very private and we notice no noise from other suits. They are very well equipped and the new beds especially comfortable. The present managers Deb and Pete are a real find. They go well beyond the extra mile to help and make one feel comfortable - even brought round DVD's from their
own collection when bad weather confined us for several days. Incidentally bad weather can confine one on lord Howe at times and we would have to say we would far prefer to be at lorhiti than the other lodges we have tried in such circumstances.

We think Lorhiti is terrific value for money and cannot recommend it highly enough. We have friends from England who have spent a life time ( they are in their 70's but very sprightly) searching out the most idyllic places in the world in which to holiday. Having been introduced to Lord Howe by us they have now been 5 times - traveling from the UK primarily to enjoy the most idyllic place on earth. They too would stay for absolute first preference at Lorhiti..

Well done Diane and Gary and Deb and Pete. Just don't get booked up too much as we will need a spot next year!

We chose Lorhiti after looking at many Websites and comments on Tripadvisor, and we now know we made the best choice. From the friendly greeting by Deb at the airport & showing us through our immaculate apartment equiped with all the items we could possibly need we were very impressed. Everything was clean & shiny. We found the location ideal, a short walk to Ned's beach, a quick cycle to the centre of town & the Lagoon & suggestions on which tours to book. Pete or Deb dropped us off at any restaurant at night & the restaurants dropped us back. Kitchen was well set up & also a BBQ area, but we tried a different restaurant each night. We ate at the Anchorage the most, but enjoyed lunch at Coral Cafe, burgers at Thompson Store, Fish night at Beach House and 4 course dinner at Pinetrees.

My husband and I have just returned from Lord Howe Island, I am very happpy with our choice of Lorhiti for our accommodation. I went off the website and reviews from tripadvisor. There are 6 units which have everything you need to make your stay pleasurable. Deb and Peter, our hosts were so helpful and friendly, you felt at ease immediately. We have a 2 year old grandchild (who we love dearly), but it was lovely to have a quite and peaceful stay with no children under 11 years. Some of our favourite restaurants were walking distance but Deb and Peter would drive you if you needed to go to any restaurant on the Island and then they restaurant drove you back to your unit. We had such a great holiday that we wil certainly go back. Paul and Trish, Horsfield Bay NSW

Room Tip: All units are excellent

Just returned from a lovely week at Lorhiti the best description of our stay is excellent.The garden apartments are well laid out very spacious & spotlessly clean ,the surrounding gardens are beautiful & well maintained. The hospitality of on site managers Deb & Peter is second to none ,they were extremely friendly , helpful & nothing was to much trouble. Our whole experience from the booking with Greg ,the attention to detail by Deb & Peter, exploring the island on our bikes, dining at the local restraunts & the local people of Lord Howe was one of the best holidays we've had Thanks to all especially Deb & Peter

My wife and I have just returned from our first trip to Lord Howe Island, and it certainly won't be our last! Our accommodation at Lorhiti, was chosen because of its close proximity to Ned's beach. The quality, cleanliness and comprehensive list of included items to use during our stay certainly surprised us. As well as the usual items found in quality accommodation we were surprised to see beach towels, sarongs, an insulated back pack, stubby holders, and there was even a set of plastic wineglasses for the beach! There was a re-chargeable torch as well, should it have been required. Excellent garden surrounds and great hosts in Deb and Peter, made sure that we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Whether it was at the airport where we were met with a smile, or on one of the many drop offs to the restaurants every evening, it was always a pleasure to interact with both Deb and Peter. When we return to Lord Howe, we will return to Lorhiti as well!

Room Tip: Six rooms, and all would be excellent! The fitness centre is a walk or a cycle around the island. Th...

Thank you very much for your glowing review . It is nice to know you appreciated the extra touches and items made available for your use in the apartments . We always ask guests for their thgoughts on how we can improve and the extra items are largely due to hearing from what guests would like and also knowing what we would like when we travel.

It is lovely to hear that you felt the genuine friendliness and warmth from Deb & Pete . They really do enjoy looking after the guests , which shows in all the reviews . Looking after the guests is their job but one that anyone can see they love by the concern and care they take in looking after their new friends .

We look forward to welcoming you back and making sure you have an equally enjoyable stay on your next visit .

The apartments are clean and well appointed and there is a self-service free laundry, and a large selection of novels. The gardens are well looked, after with interesting bird-life. The managers Deb & Peter (who live on-site) are helpful and friendly and seem to go that bit extra to help where needed at all hours.

The complex (6 units) is positioned about 10 mins walk from the town centre, with a short but fairly steep climb the last 30 metres or so. It is the closest to Ned's Beach (about 6 mins), where the best snorkelling and fish feeding can be found. All the gear can be rented there on an honesty box system. There are a couple of restaurants very close by, but wherever you want to eat, the managers will run you there in the mini-bus and the restaurant will bring you home. Shopping is expensive (the freight costs for getting goods there add up), but eating out is no more expensive than Sydney.

This was a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Basically all similar. Just be sure to book early. There seem to be a lot of return visitors.

My husband and I have just returned from our first trip to Lord Howe Island. I looked at trip advisor when booking accommodation....our experience is the same as the reviews I read. Lorhiti is the perfect spot to stay...close to Ned's Beach -so a quick cycle for a swim before breakfast and everything thought of for a comfortable stay...even a beach umbrella.The managers Deb and Peter are fabulous...from advice on where to dine,excursions and the 6.30 shuttle bus to any destination. One extra bonus at Lorhiti is the transit room...after a 9.30 checkout there is a room with towels,bathroom and tea/coffee facilities...so for a late afternoon flight you can still make the most of the day. Lorhiti is the perfect spot.
