Too old - on top of a steep hill. Don't waste your money. Also outdated for the prices charged. The Island is nice - just alot of price inflation on accommodation. If you get stuck there !!! Hello Capella!

Prepaid $5K via Oxley Travel to secure 2 x 1 bd cottages at Beachcomber Lodge for a total of 5 nights. Unfortunately QANTAS cancelled our flights on three occasions to LHI (Oct 2022) and therefore we were unable to utilize or prepaid accommodation. Understandably guest who were unable to depart LHI were staying in our prepaid rooms, and likely paying some category of tariff to Beachcomber. Requested Gary from Beachcomber consider issuing us a partial refund or even a partial travel credit (to be used in non peak period) but to no avail. We were not seeking a full refund., nor even 50%. Have stayed at LHI previously, but this is an expensive lesson. Ensure you have adequate travel insurance (even though it is domestic travel), as QANTAS does cancel flights to LHI and Beachcomber will not offer any sort of remedy. Time for my family to find a new destination. Glen

The stay was fine, its pretty basic so dont expect anything too flash but it does the job. Service was good here, not a lot of internet though!

We came to LHI for our honeymoon and I would say the trip was a disaster. Couldn't get restaurant bookings & experienced rude hospo staff, it was hard to find fresh food (the island was running out of food due to the barge being turned around), we missed the Mt Gower climb due to a delayed flight by 1 day, fishing boats were broken & not going out, Balls Pyramid boat was cancelled on the day. BE PREPARED if you choose LHI for your next holiday destination.

Very comfy bed, everything works, well equipped (including the kitchenette) and a few extra nice touches you don't find at other places in this price range on Lord Howe (e.g. toiletries, tea/coffee/sugar/milk). Staff is very accommodating, more than happy to change out towels, take you to dinner each evening, pretty much anything you need. There is no mobile service on the island but the (paid) wifi here works very well, And there is a free Telstra phone booth right outside to call and make dinner bookings or schedule activities. I saw a recent review that seemed to be oblivious to the fact that this a small (and very hilly) island and you have to consider that when booking. I think Beachcomber does very well in this environment, but do research Lord Howe before heading off and make sure it's the right holiday for you.

This is a very different holiday especially for older visitors. Good place for the young and fit but they probably can’t afford it.
Accommodation is ok but basic, spacious clean roomy but no air conditioning and a bit tatty.
The biggest problem is the location. Bicycles are the main form of transport or walk. It is on the top of a steep hill about 1.5 km from the shops. Even the school kids had to get off and push their bikes up, so quite a problem for 70 year olds. Roads are also narrow and lumpy. Getting around is very difficult especially when we were unlucky that it rained four out of the six days. No wonder it’s green and lush.
Virtually no internet or mobile phones and basic tv stops when it rains! You can get a lift to restaurants and they will bring you back although the bowling club forgot us and went home! The chef had to give us a lift after cleaning the kitchen. Only a small number of restaurants were open and most were only two nights a week due to Covid. Bowling club had the best food. You have to book usually using a public phone.
The natural features are amazing but not in the rain or when it’s difficult to get there. They really need to provide more for older visitors.
Understandably everything costs double the mainland price.
Must admit this holiday was disappointing. A big thank you to the manager Paul who did a great job. Also the beachcomber restaurant was closed down.

Room tip: Room 1 was great as it’s on the end although some sewerage smells occasionally
