My wife and I just spent 2 nights at the Grey Gum Lodge. We got one of the queen size rooms with access to a shared verandah. Room was nicely equipped with everything you need, and the verandah was great to sit on and enjoy a drink, with a splendid view onto a distant mountain range. There is also a small kitchenette there with a toaster and microwave. The hosts Darren and Stuart were very nice to deal with and very accommodating. The lodge is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Nimbin.
Excellent communication from Darren who could not be there for my arrival - his instructions were easy to follow and I was in my room in no time. Lovely room with ceiling fan and AC. Had the best night's sleep on the comfy bed. Everything was clean and tidy. The verandah was a lovely place to sit and the walk into town easy and short. Would definitely stay again.
I had booked to stay for a week in nimbin, whilst my kids were in Byron with their dad. We were so looking forward to this as we had been in Victoria in lockdown for 4 months and this was our reward. Unfortunately the borders closed and we could no longer go. When I rang the owner to cancel. He was curt and not the sort of person you would expect living in Nimbin - he acted like he was a concierge in a corporate hotel in the city. He wouldn’t give me a straight answer about my cancellation and showed ZERO empathy or sympathy. In the end not only did he make me pay the full amount but also an 89 cancellation fee! I’m a single mum who saved all year for this holiday but he just stole my money and charged a cancellation fee! He’s a total fake and he’s only in it for money!!! He only cares about money and not people! Beware!…
We spent a lovely night here at the Grey Gum Lodge. The bed was very comfortable and the facilities in the room were great. We were on a motorbike ride, so the position of the lodge was so close to town.
What a lovely place! Old wooden house that hasn't been made over to modernise it, thoughtfully decorated and with everything you need for comfort. Bed was good, room has a fan and air-conditioning, and there's a small communal kitchen with toaster and microwave (no hob or oven). Friendly welcome and best of all fabulous balcony to hang out on with view over the hills. And beautiful lush gardens as well. The road is a bit noisy in the morning, the only downside.
