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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed here for eight days and enjoyed it. Janine and Peter are helpful and available and our accommodation was cosy and comfortable. There are barbecues in the complex. Location is excellent and the island itself is fascinating.

Online advertising photos may give the wrong impressions. The rooms are joined in the style of a 1980's outback motel. very very close... Forget about privacy, intamacy, peace and quiet. You share your neighbours TV habits, loud voices, cigarette smoke and late nights etc. There is no escape at night While the island is great, this accomodation is not what we imagined. After twice staying at Milky Way this was a sad come down. The grounds were tidy, staff are friendly and its a good location. Really needs a makeover or even a scrub would help.

Thank you for your feedback. Our rooms are close together, however, on our website you can see in our videos etc that this is the case. Usually, our guests are mindful of noise levels and this is not normally a problem. Smoking is prohibited in the rooms and guests are asked to smoke in the garden area if need be. We are slowly updating the premises. Our Malabar rooms have undergone a partial renovation and updates will continue around the Lodge. Kind regards.

We stayed at Blue Lagoon last week for 7 nights. Had a wonderful stay, thanks to Greg and Janine. Peter was busy with the tours. Last time our tour with Peter was fantastic. A wonderful location. Janine was most helpful with our travel back to Sydney. Pity our flight was delayed, but that's all part of the journey. We look forward to next year.

As a group of 9 we had a great time at Blue Lagoon thanks to Janine,Peter & Craig..the location is central to the breaches,shops & restaurants. Don't expect a cheap holiday as it's a small Island & everything is shipped in..Lot's of walks and beautiful beaches.

Beware this place is old and dated and not worth the $$$ paid but as accommodation is limited on Lord howe they can charge what they want. It needs updating desperately it was like a motel out of the 70's.

My fantastic description describes Lord Howe Island and Blue Lagoon. The Island is unique and superb. Blue Lagoon is good, comfortable and well located and probably about three star and was ideal for our six day stay. However, overall as part of our Lord Howe experience is was ideal and fitted in well and contributed to the overall experience. Quite a lot of our friends have visited Lord Howe and I have yet to find anyone who hasn't liked the experience and have recommended it to others, which is precisely what we are doing now.

Thanks to Jeanine & Peter for a wonderful stay for the past 7 nights. The location of the Blue Lagoon is exceptional. The Chase n Thyme tour was one of the many highlights. Unit 3 was clean, functional and well located next to our friends in Unit 2 . The garden environment was pleasant. March is an ideal time to visit. Best wishes. We will recommend your place to our friends without hesitation. Ross and Briony

Adult family of 5 plus 7 month old grandchild spent 1 week here at the beginning of December. From our first contact via email with Des, to the family members running the property Janine, Craig & their staff, we had a wonderful time. Our accommodation was great - simple, clean & functional - perfect for a holiday where we wanted to spend time together, relax & not have to worry about anything. The Thompson family are friendly & helpful & made sure that we had all that we needed including cot, high chair, extra towels etc. Blue Lagoon is in a central location on the Island - close to the beach & lagoon , general stores, cafe & bar. For me it was a return to a gorgeous island I had been to several times as a teenager with my parents & I was thrilled to be sharing this experience with my family. Thank you to the Thompson family for making our time on Lord Howe so special.

We had 2 x one bedroom Malabar rooms. Clean & comfortable, very dated. Lovely outlook over the tropical gardens which were beautifully kept. Janine collected us from the airport in a minibus. She was so lovely and gave us a little tour to show us where things were before taking us to our rooms. Julia and Manu were sweet and came and changed our towels. Beach towels are provided. It’s the best location. Right next to Thompson’s store and a one minute walk to The Anchorage and a one minute ride to the lagoon or less! We used their very retro transit unit to shower before our flight. We managed a snorkeling tour after checkout and before our flights left at 1:30 pm. Lovely Janine took us out to the airport. Perfect. Highly recommend Blue Lagoon.
