Fodor's Review

Right on Lagoon Beach and a short walk from the popular bowling club, the Pinetrees Lodge has a terrific location, and is the largest accommodation on Lord Howe Island—with motel rooms, suites, and garden cottages. The property is run by Rachael and Jim McFadyen, descendants of the island's first settlers, and is one of the few hotels on the island that stays open year-round. Rooms are clean and tidy and without too many frills, but the location and family feel are great draws. There are good deals for stays of more than five nights as well as themed packages (honeymoons, spring wellness weeks). Meals are included in the rates, and the staff can prepare picnic lunches. On Monday nights there's a five-course fish fry that includes crab soup, sashimi, and fish-and-chips. The lodge has a familiar guest-house vibe, as guests sit at the same tables for dinner at set hours. Guests love the daily sunset drinks at Pinetrees's own beachfront boat shed. The rate of A$410 per person includes all meals including afternoon tea.
