“Great place for a group...”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

A group of us stayed at LL in March and had a wonderful time. Great staff and beautiful grounds. The two bedroom place was perfect for us as we were traveling w two kids. The accomm seems to have been recently rennovated. BBQs are located in great courtyards. Very handy having a laundry there too. Very well located opposite Joy's store and only half way up the hill. Beds were very comfortable and units clean.

Enjoyed our stay. Friendly staff and a lovely location. Also appreciated the weber BBQs. Rooms are of a good size but are basic and lacking in some ways.

20 of us stayed at Leanda-Lei in late February and it was great. Our apartment was fairly well appointed but we could have done with a few more serving dishes. The BBQs were handy and cleaned daily. The bed was very comfortable. I would certainly recommend it for a group of like minded people.

Room Tip: The two one bedroom apartments facing the grass are probably the pick but the two bedroom apartments...

My husband and I went to Leanda-Lei for a week in October 2011. We were in a one bedroom apartment down near the BBQ. The room and facilities were excellent, the bed was very comfortable and soft. Sitting on the balcony we looked straight towards Mt. Gower and it was superb. Jenny (reception/owner) was delightful - nothing was too much for her and was always courteous, polite and had a smile. I love the way that they take you by bus at anytime to any of the restaurants/properties. I would highly recommend Leanda-Lei.

Room Tip: Last apartment in complex (forgot number) they are like little villas.

This property is very organised and clean. It is located in easy bicycling distance from all amenities, and has a large transit room which is very comfortable to wait in if you have to check out prior to your flight departure. If you are able to get a package deal, then this property would be good value. We found it to be a little noisy, and lacking in privacy. We were also a little surprised to find that the rooms did not come with milk or shampoo/toiletries, which are pretty much basic expectations from any accommodation (and were provided at the other hotel that we stayed at on Lord Howe Island).

There are a number of unwritten rules for Lord Howe at Christmas.
1. Rooms are very expensive for what you get (but then it is Lord Howe and it was Christmas)
2. Large groups will be noisy (see 1 above)

We left our booking too late so had minimal choice and had to be guided with what would suit us back so ended up with 2 studio rooms at $320 each per night. (Much more expensive than Sydney central) however both rooms had more than adequate cooking facilities and a small outdoor area. The BBQ areas scattered through the grounds were really a saviour as we were able to Gazebo dine and feel totally isolated from other guests.

Noise was an issue (yes it was Christmas but i really didn't expect the driveway on which our studio rooms were situated to be the playground of choice for the under 5s set whose parents rooms were nowhere in sight...Grandma saying shhhhhh at 7am didn't help either thankfully Rake at 9pm with his unsavoury language did discourage them one evening).

Real details......The room was huge with a well set up kitchen so I was able to self cater for most meals and the teenagers rediscovered the joy of washing up family style. Comfy King beds, spotlessly clean and well szed bathroom. No airocn but good airflow with front and rear doors open to keep room cool. Eating in or out on the rear good for flexibiltiy as well as the numerous BBQ and gazebo areas. No daily service (not needed) coin laundry with plenty of change on site. Pay phone which consumed coins in the lounge area along with games (thumbs up)

What could have been better..our rooms were on the driveway and being lovers of peace and quiet and privacy this was a drawback. if we stayed again I would choose either 1 bedroom or request a room not in the driveway 4. We were too far from "town" and Neds to walk so the hire car was necessary for those with mobility issues, bikes are fine for most especially with the best "shop" in town opposite.

What really set LHI apart was the hosts....Judy and Peter (?) were fantastic especially when the our flight was cancelled, the kids had to change rooms (no extra $$ for the bigger room) and kept us up to date with what was happening. We travel a lot and we felt so comfortable with being informed, and how things were going.

The little hitches (noise) were no fault of the owners, just a reflection of time of year and big groups, not everyone is the quiet creatures we are..bed by 9 andup at 6am.

In short Leanda Lei was a great place for a family who wants self cater in paradise

Could not fault Leanda-lei. Staff friendly and helpful, rooms clean and comfortable (studio was very spacious), and a central location meant not too far to walk to most parts of the island if you wanted to.
