Blackbird offer luxury accommodation in the Byron Hinterland. Somewhere to escape the ordinary. This boutique bed and breakfast has been impeccably designed to be close to nature and close to the hearts of the founders, James and Stella Hudson. The attention to detail in the interior design, exterior design and facilities, like a Magnesium mineral swimming pool, are framed beautifully in acres of green rain forest, with spectacular views Eastwards to Cape Byron and the Pacific ocean. From the moment you arrive we take extra care to ensure you receive a memorable experience, with Champagne on arrival, and complimentary artisanal local produce in your room. This luxury destination is a boutique ‘home from home’ for couples, small groups of friends, family or colleagues. A place where you can ‘escape to you’.

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.

Loved this beautiful, relaxing little gem from the moment we arrived. Greeted by the lovely Victoria, champagne on arrival and then to find out we were to have the whole place to ourselves... amazing and very special. The beautiful food prepared by Seb, the view, solitude, magnesium pool, sauna, birdlife, seriously what more could we say... PERFECT in every way!!

What an amazing little getaway.. if your after a nice place to reset and leave the “hustle” behind then this place is your answer.. Just relax and enjoy the peaceful ambiance that is on offer. The journey starts with a warm welcome and orientation with Victoria, whilst you settle in and leave the real world problems behind. Our highlights included the private dinners created by chef Catie.. amazing flavors and hassle free dining. Thank you for having us.. If you are reading this review and are deciding whether to or not.. just do it!! You will not regret it. 👌

It is hard to do justice in a few short sentences to the unique experience that awaits guests at Blackbird. It is a very, very special place. Blackbird has just five immaculately decorated en-suite lodges. With a vista across vast swathes of woodland and sweeping valleys largely untouched by humans since the dawn of time, the views across Mullumbimby Creek and down to Byron Bay some 25km away are genuinely breathtaking. Those views come with a soundtrack from nature to make the soul soar - black cockatoos from which it gets its name, whipbirds, cicada and a myriad of other strange but wonderful bird song. The food is fantastic at breakfast and dinner, while a well stocked honesty bar serves to help avoid the steep drive down to Mullum. A huge thank you to manager Victoria for helping make our first visit to Australia such a special one. Her warmth and hospitality are as natural are an integral part of the Blackbird experience and as natural as the stunning scenery that surrounds it. Small but perfectly formed,. Blackbird is a real gem that will make an indelible impression on you as it lets you breath deeply and connect. Blackbird is the polar opposite of the normal commoditised, depersonalised, big corporate hotel experience - and all the better for it. We feel genuinely lucky to have stayed at somewhere so special.

Superb. Victoria is a wonderful host and made us the most incredible vegan breakfasts with fresh vegetables and mushrooms. The pool is heaven, the atmosphere very comfortable and chill, the view magical. We also enjoyed a delicious plant based dine in dinner of locally sourced vegetables.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Blackbird Byron. It was beautiful! The view from our room was amazing, and even though the weather was rubbish (and we missed the gorgeous sunrise), we still enjoyed our time relaxing in this gorgeous setting. We were met on arrival by Victoria, who couldn’t have been more welcoming. Our breakfast each morning was delicious too. We just loved everything about this place. 10/10

We were treated with great service. The surroundings were gorgeous and the apartment had many thoughtful details included. We felt instantly unwound from the bustle of the city. Highly recommend ordering the degustation and evening meals. Absolutely Delicious.

It was the perfect place for my girlfriend and I just to unwind and spend time whilst enjoying the stunning views of Bryon Bay and it’s surroundings. The rustic recycled look of the pavilions and the artful decor added to the charm and luxurious feel of the place. Vicki was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed the fresh, nutritious and delicious meals by her and her team. The tranquil ambiance of Blackbird and the beauty of nature around it made our stay so blissfully relaxing and we felt so refreshed although we were only there for 2 days.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Blackbird on the way home to the South Coast from our wedding on Fraser Island. It the last 2 nights of our 3weeks away and it was definitely a perfect magical way to end our trip. Victoria met us upon arrival and was such a lovely welcoming hostess. We went to the main pavilion where we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne and got a feel for the property… the view over the Byron Hinterland was to die for 💙 Our pavilion was very spacious and luxurious. It was light and open with again the most amazing views. There was a platter for us there when we arrived. It felt like we were tucked away in a little piece of paradise! The included breakfast cooked by the on-site chef was delicious and one of the best breakfasts of our time away. We we’re somehow lucky enough to be the only ones staying at the property the first night so we got the main pavilion, with the outdoor fire place all ourselves to enjoy the most amazing sunset. We also made the most of using the magnesium pool and Sauna (at no extra charge), we left feeling incredibly relaxing and refreshed. This was the most amazing stay we were definitely left in awe of this incredible property!

Recently stayed at Blackbird Byron with my girlfriend and it was everything they promised it would be. From the personalised service, to the view across to the coast and back to the rainforest, to the beautifully appointed private pavilions, to the chef prepared dinners, continental breakfast, the sauna and the pool, we couldn’t have asked for more. We will return xx
