I love this motel. It's a peaceful rural haven set in stunning countryside within a few minutes' drive of Nimbin town centre. I stayed overnight during a road trip and enjoyed watching wallabies grazing in the fields nearby and listening to frogs at night. The room was clean and beautifully furnished and the owner was friendly and helpful. A very...

Our room was very comfortable, impeccably clean and with a great bed and incredible view - and importantly - very cool during a heatwave. We were given a choice of room upon arrival and our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We regretted only having booked one night and promised ourselves that we would return for a longer...

It's so difficult to describe this beautiful place!.. Whatever you see on booking.com or any other website, this place is even more beautiful!.. We were with friends, shared a great atmosphere , relaxing evening and woke up to a mystical morning with kangaroos all over the place... You can even take a hike for half an hour in the magical...

Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The rustic, comfortable atmosphere with views over paddocks, cattle and horses, and a short walk to a lovely stream made this a very relaxing stay. Look forward to returning next time we are in the area.

My partner and I came here for an overnight stay to escape city life. We venture to this area of the world often but have never stayed overnight. We are so pleased we chose Crofton's Retreat for our little getaway. The location is second to none, you are completely surrounded by beautiful green fields and mountains. The air is so...

Only 4 kms from Nimbin. We were welcomed by animals and hosts. The unit was well appointed but not pretentious. Beds and pillows were extremely comfortable.Seating on the veranda was a good spot at the end of the day giving the opportunity to meet other guests if you were so inclined. A short drive into town if you want dinner....

Crofton's Retreat is a working 88 acre farm just outside Nimbin. It is a beautiful, peaceful & healing place with no traffic noises at all. Your hosts will make sure you are comfortable & you really could not find 2 people who are more genuine & caring. If you really want a great rest, and time to take in the...

I can highly recommend Crofton's Retreat. The surrounds are picture perfect with the wild life and of course the cows, chooks and most importantly their two beautiful dogs. Our dog was welcomed everywhere. The hosts provided exceptional hospitality, always ready to assist in any way. The room was very comfortable and we slept well. We will be back!! Thank you...

I ended up in Nimbin late at night needed to find somewhere to stay. I searched the internet and found The Croftin Retreat and called to book a room. The gentleman on the phone gave me the directions on how to get there. I drove out of town and turned onto Crofton Road and followed it until I found the...
