Backpackerish

Posted 15-Apr-2016 on Wotif
Pros: The setting is lovely. Proximity to Byron would be a plus if it's important to you.
Cons: Proper breakfast. Shower soap/gel.
Location: Byron Bay and everything it has to offer is just 5 minutes away.
The garden is beautiful and serene. The rooms were clean and quite nice, but the place reminded me of a backpackers hostel. Very little privacy; lots of shared facilities. We skipped breakfast altogether, because we didn't feel like a small yogurt, some fruit and breakfast cereal. We paid extra for the spa room. At the price we paid, we expected a little more. There are other places nearby (especially in the Hinterland) that offer better value for money.

Um refúgio na natureza

Posted 20-Mar-2016 on Hotels
O hotel é afastado do centro e da estrada, como fomos de carro, não foi um problema. É um refúgio, bom para descansar. O quarto era bem pequeno, mas podíamos usar a sala, cozinha e quintal. A casa é ampla e aconchegante. Os proprietário são muito simpáticos e acolhedores.

アットホームなホテル

Posted 13-Feb-2016 on Hotels
オーナーご夫妻は二人ともフレンドリーでした。 ホテルは町から少し離れてますが、自転車レンタルが出来るので 不便は感じなかったです。 料金も1日10ドルなので良心的な値段だと思いました。 町についてからもライトハウスまで歩くと40分ほどかかるところ 下りは10分で着き気持ちよいサイクリングになりました。 行きはさすがに急な坂道だったので自転車を降り歩きましたが。 朝食はパン、ヨーグルト、果物、シリアル、➕手作りのマフィンもありました。 食べきれなかったのでおやつに持っていきました。 部屋も広く夜は蛙の鳴き声を聞きながら自然の中で心地よく過ごせました。 オーナーご夫妻の人柄が出ているアットホームなホテルです。

Relaxing with nature

Posted 19-Jan-2016
Pros: The unique character and surroundings were peaceful and relaxing. Yet within easy reach of the bustling town.
Cons: Wouldn't like it to change.
Location: Byron Bay beautiful beaches, countryside and little towns and markets all around. Busy nightlife and restaurants of Byron.
Planula was a really relaxing environment. This location transported us to a lush haven. Everything was lovely and in keeping with the setting. Although the surroundings were natural the accommodation was right up-to-date. We had a few days of rain, but no greyness, all the palms creating a lovely setting. For breakfast the owners supplied freshly made pastries, various muffins and or home made bread, this provided a really enjoyable and relaxed start to each day. I felt that they really cared about their guests, whilst not intruding. Our room and bathroom was very clean and spacious and flyscreens meant we had good ventilation whilst keeping any creepy crawlies out. A beautiful setting including the sight of water dragons and the sounds of frogs at night made this a great experience for me. We drove just a short distance (5 minutes) into Byron each day. All areas were easily accessible to explore. I am so glad that we didn't stay in one of the more usual hotels right in the town.

a bit bit distant but peaceful b&b

Posted 12-Jan-2016 on Hotels
At first, location of the hotel seemed a bit distant. In the end, it was very convenient. We walked and cycled (about 3,5 km) to the centre. Location was peaceful with plenty of nature around. Tim and Wandy are very nice hosts. All and all very nice trip

Beautiful location, out of town

Posted 04-Nov-2015 on Hotels
The hotel is surrounded by beautiful trees, with a pond with frogs. It gives a very relaxing, remote feeling without being too far from town if you have a car. The rooms are big and comfortable, but the cleaning failed during our stay. I would still recommend it.
