Tintoela definitely lived up to its Norfolk name of “sweetheart”

Review of Tintoela
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Jan 2023via mobile
We booked Tintoela as it was highly rated and it definitely lived up to its reputation. The self-contained cottages are beautifully appointed with a stunning view of the ocean and Norfolk pines. We stayed at both Kushu (1 bedroom) and Hilli (2 bedroom). Both were extremely comfortable but Kushu had a bath. Tintoela is exceptionally peaceful and we never tired of the view. It’s not far from the main centre and historical Kingston town is easy to get to. The extra touches were appreciated - flowers, hire car, and mobile phone with credit (as you can’t use your own phone as Norfolk is on a different network). Emma, the manager met us at the airport and we followed her back to Tintoela in the hire car that came with the accommodation. There are lots of helpful tips in an info pack. I would advise you booking restaurants like Homestead or Hilli before you come as they get booked out early. We added a breakfast hamper which lasted for 3 days (and we even used it for a couple of lunches). Emma arranged an orientation tour with Baunti Tours which was great. We then booked a few more tours with them. Thanks Emma. We loved our time at Tintoela.
Date of stay: January 2023
Room Tip: Book restaurants before you come. But Tintoela has cooking facilities and a BBQ. Bring your own...

Tintoela was a wonderful place to stay on the delightful Norfolk Island. We stayed in the one bedroom cottage and had a brilliant time. The cottage is located overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a northerly aspect. It is superbly appointed and a comfortable ambiance. We were able to completely relax and fell in love with both Tintoela and Norfolk Island.

Room tip: Make every effort to explore as much of this island as possible.

With a view down the valley, past the waterfall and out to sea, the siting of Tintoela is exceptional. A feeling of calm space is found here with wonderfully comfortable bedding and good amenities. Our group ate at home often and found all we needed to prepare our food.
Highly recommend this as the best place to stay on Norfolk Island

Room tip: Stay at least 10 days to cover the many things to do on Norfolk

The Tintoela Hilli cottage (perfect for 2 couples) was superb. Wonderful views. Modern and functional. All needed amenities including wi-fi. Food for breakfasts and snacks. The manager, Emma Christian, was charming and very helpful.

This was our second stay at Tintola and it was as good as the first. We were well looked after by Emma the manager. It has beautiful views and was just what we needed. We had a problem with the car which was dealt with quickly and didn't cause any problems. The cottage is well appointed and has what you need to cook if you want to as while the ship had been delayed and supplies in some cases were low you could still get what you needed. Restaurant's were very good but we made use of the barbecue provided. Would definitely go back again and can recommend it.

We had a fantastic five day stay in the stunning Hilli cottage at Tintoela. The cottage itself is amazing: views to die for from most rooms; polished Norfolk pine floors and cathedral ceilings; luxurious appointments; it provided every convenience we could ask for and more!

The Tintoela property is like a large Botanic Garden, with lawns sloping down to the Cascade valley and from there to lovely views of the Pacific Ocean. It balances privacy with reasonable closeness to the facilities of the town.

Manager Shaun was extremely helpful and generous with his time; meeting us at the airport and providing our rental car, and then being available throughout our stay when his advice was needed.

Norfolk Island itself was amazing: so much history, culture and natural beauty. We will certainly recommend both Tintoela and the island to our friends as well worth a visit, and we would love to return.
