Dear Vince, we are sorry to see you did not enjoy your stay at Planula B&B. We genuinely aim to inform all of our guests about our amenities, location, services and uniqueness as much as we can, including the fact we are at the end of an unsealed road. Our guests love the natural setting, the peace at night, the excellent breakfasts in the mornings and our friendly, yet professional approach.Thank you for taking the time to review Planula B&B.

a beautiful place to stay. Rainforest vegetation, pond with frogs and a relaxed atmosphere. large common area to gather. delicious food, especially the fresh blueberry muffins and brown bread cooked on the premises. away from the busy Byron Bay street scape but close enough to enjoy the beaches and restaurants.

Thank you David for your kind words about Planula. We do love being surrounded by nature but only a very short distance (3km) from the centre of Byron and we hope to welcome you again soon.

typisch Australien erleben

Byron bay in einem typischen Umfeld erleben. Im Dschungel wohnen und 2 km weiter am Strand liegen oder surfen. Genial.

Thank you for taking the time to review our place. We are happy you enjoyed the peace and quiet. The unsealed road that gives our B&B a remote feel does suffer when we get heavy summer rains. The good news is that the potholes have been filled up! And yes, we are not a 5 star place. We rather offer an affordable, relaxed get-away, a unique place really close to Byron Bay. Thanks again and we look forward to have you back soon. Wandy & Tim

Hi Lynne, thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate the feedback. We have had some really warm, tropical days here in Byron Bay this January with not even the evenings/night cooling down like they usually do. Normally our ceiling fans we have in every room are sufficient. We look forward having you stay at Planula B&B the next time you come to Byron Bay. Tim and Wandy

Hi Cassie, thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate all feedback. Great that you loved the surrounds and the atmosphere at Planula. The beginning of January has been really hot for everyone and we are sorry to hear you were not able to get a proper sleep. Normally our ceiling fans we have in every room are sufficient. We look forward having you stay at Planula B&B the next time you come to Byron Bay. Tim and Wandy

A Traditional B&B set in the woods of Byron Bay

Posted 09-Jan-2015 on Hotels
The owners of the property were quite helpful and pleasant as other reviewers have stated. Unfortunately your experience here will completely depend on who you are sharing the property with. It is a 5 bedroom house converted into a B&B with shared kitchen and outdoor space. We had a nice breakfast enjoying the homemade bread (but it's just breads and cereals with a fruit bowl) however, the evening prior some guests were watching a movie very loudly until late in the common living space. Otherwise the place is very quiet, only nature sounds just hope you have pleasant guests. When we booked I thought it was quite expensive but it seems like the price was on-par with the rest of Byron. I imagine it would be even better in the off season when you could have the place to yourself or rent more rooms out with a bigger group. You really need a car to enjoy this place.
