Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our stay at the lily pad was absolutely wonderful. This delightful, lovely, secluded bungalow was situated in the eucalyptus forest just outside Byron Bay, only minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our hosts were some of the nicest people we’ve ever met, and provided us with an incredibly clean, comfortable and welcoming retreat. We certainly plan to return next year, and will be booking with Julie and Paul.

A beautiful and tranquil location. The gardens and accommodation are stunning and you are still very close to town. The kitchen is very well equipped and the lounge area very comfortable. Definitely coming back soon!

We had a lovely, relaxing few days at Lily Pad. Very secluded on a stunning property however, just a 5min drive into town. Set amongst beautiful gardens, this retreat was the perfect setting to relax and read a book. Extremely welcoming hosts who ensured we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back.

Really happy with everything. Wonderful property in a stunning surroundings. Highly recommend. Would like to have stayed longer. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. Shampoos and soaps available. Two dogs very friendly and came to see us each morning.

An absolute oasis a short distance from Byron and the beach. There is nothing not to love about this place, the owners, Julie and Paul have thought of everything to create a comfortable living space (and some!). The gardens are magnificent and you can buy fresh eggs and honey daily there - the chooks roam around and their lovely dog comes over for a friendly pat! I hope we can return very soon and would have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation to anyone.

A secluded piece of paradise a stones throw from the heart of Byron Bay. The gardens were beautiful as was the accommodation. Owners were amazing and provided their own eggs/honey which were divine and were super helpful our entire stay. A lovely clean place with comfy bed and big fluffy towels. We had a koala in the back tree, chickens in the front yard and bush walks on the door step. Relaxation at its best. Well will be back for sure.

Room Tip: A car is needed for this property, but it’s absolutely worth the 5 min drive from the beach.

The Lily Pad is an absolutely wonderful place to stay and we will be back. The accommodation is beautifully appointed and the hosts are marvelous. Ideally situated, not in the middle of the hustle and bustle but close enough to access everything you could want.

The Lilypad takes you to another world from the moment you enter the driveway. The grounds were beautifully kept and you can easily get lost wandering amongst the orchads. The retreat was amazing with everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchen. The accomodation was immaculate. Julie and Paul kept us well informed on the check in process. They even offered to set up the fire pit and fairy lights, if we wanted night under the stars. The bottle of chilled wine for my wife's birthday was a welcome touch. You are the only people at the accomodation and this sets you up for a relaxing getaway. We loved just sitting on the deck listening to the birds and the wind rustling through the trees. We will be back.

We stayed 4 nights at the Lilypad and couldn't have been happier. The Lilypad is surrounded by lush garden and native forests, it is both relaxing and invigorating. The level of accomodation was excellent, from the fully equiped kitchen, relaxing lounge area, gorgeous verandah and peaceful bedroom. We really enjoyed the sancturary of the Lilypad with the ability to hop in the car and be in the centre of Byron Bay in minutes. Both Julie and Paul are excellent hosts with a wealth of information on things to do and see if you need. Left feeling contented, relaxed and happy. Couldn't recommend the Lilypad higher or Julie and Paul already thinking about another stay. Peter & Kay
