Lavender House B & B
Ranked #4 of 5 The Entrance B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 11, 2013

John and Linda are awesome host. The breakfast and high tea served by them was out of this world. All homemade items to perfection. Clean and comfy rooms. Lavender House location too is very good as its very near to beach. Best to spend a calm and peaceful holiday.

We stayed at the apartment which is attached to the B&B and it was very disapointing.It should not be called an apartment as it's really an old fashioned flat.
The host were lovely people and even made my son a cake for his birthday but the unit was very old fashioned,musty and dusty.
The beds were uncomfortable and the bed linen,even though clean were very old.The main bed had a bedspread on it from the 70's and the pillows were lumpy.
The towels were old and faded and the curtains very dusty.
All of the crockery was what you would find at Vinnies and the patio table was rusty and very uninviting.
In comparison to other properties available at The Entrance this property is very overpriced and in desperate need of an update

My husband and i have stayed here twice. we loved it the first time, wedding hesitate to stay here when we wanted to get away another weekend. The beach is 1 min away, the markets every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month are only 10min away and the room is spacious; beds are very comfortable and own bathroom is great. The fully cooked breakfast is delicious with the owners using their own organic produce, and each meal is cooked just for you within 5 min of ordering and immediately arriving in the dining room. Thanks so much for the lovely time. Thanks so much for a friendly stay and for the free basil. It's growing wonderfully, just as you said!

Stayed there for two nights while visiting family. Nice location. Limited ocean view from our room but easy walk to ocean with great views from end of the street. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was included in the price and was generous.

I have to travel for business to the Entrance monthly. I have been staying at the Lavendar B&B, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. John and Linda are great hosts, room was extremely clean, bed very comfortable, bathroom spotless. Breakfast is so generous, thanks to John and Linda. I highly recommend it

We spent 3 nights here over Easter and overall we enjoyed the stay.

Our room was homey and had a balcony overlooking the ocean. It was very clean, good sized towels, modern bathroom, good tv/DVD and DVD collection downstairs to borrow.

Breakfast was much better then I was expecting for a family run business. The couple running the house were lovely, but perhaps a little over the top when you've travelled a long way. I'd say they need to learn to 'read' people a little better as some guests didn't seem like they wanted to chat.

I do think it's a little over-priced when you can stay in a nice hotel for a similar price. In saying that, the beds were comfortable and it was a nice place to stay so we don't have too many complaints.

My husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite for 2 nights after travelling from a resort in Coffs Harbour. This was the best 2 nights sleep we had since we left home.
The honeymoon suite is quiet, spacious, clean, airy, and very comfortable. There are egyptian cotton sheets on the bed that make for an unbelievable rest.

The view from the room is lovely. There is a large balcony with tables and chairs for you to eat lunch and dinner at whilst watching the ocean.

The bathroom is immaculate. There is an amazing spa bath and generous sized towels and dressing gowns available for you to use.

John and Linda were unbelievable friendly and very attentive to our needs whilst we were there. The breakfasts were delicious, and there were even cakes and cookies available to eat throughout the day if you wished.

The house is located within walking distance to everything - beach, shops, restaurants. You are able to just leave your car and go for a stroll.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite is well worth it - very private and comfortable.
