I like the atmosphere and decorations of the lodge. Great porch where can meet other house guests. Nice and spacious room. Darren and Stu were very friendly and helpful. Definitely will visit here again next time I come.

Very welcoming and accommodating host, Darren. Good value room. Not all rooms AC but even when the day was a hot 35C, the ceiling fan kept the room comfortably cool at night. Clean, cozy and uncomplicated. Fits right in with the relaxed and chilled atmosphere of Nimbin. Easy walk to town. We will stay here again when next visiting Nimbin.

My wife and I have been meaning to come to Nimbin for some time. I have terminal cancer and she has a rare genetic muscle disability, so we came seeking alternative treatments. We love the laid back vibe here. This past year my wife and I have stayed in an overwater villa in the Maldives and a 5 star hotel...

Nimbin was not my first thought for a holiday but after selecting the Grey Gum Lodge, I'm really glad we did. The Lodge is a converted Queenslander which has been sympathetically restored and furnished - not flash but very comfortable. The room we had opened up on to a shared balcony with views of the stunning countryside. The location is...

Stayed for 2 nights in november '16. The lodge was nicely situated in a relaxed neighbourhood with just a 5-10 minutes walk to town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lodge's overall decor was great, very hippie / Nimbin -like in a stylish way, and the general ambience was extremely relaxed. We stayed in a deluxe suite, which...

Tried contacting Rainbow Retreat for a bed but they did not reply. I suspect my age was a problem as it is mostly for young backpackers. A bit more searching found the Grey Gum Lodge.

If you find yourself visiting the quaint and quirky township of Nimbin, look no further than staying at the Grey Gum Lodge. Hosts, Darren and Stuart run this charming etsblishment which is situated a pleasant 10 minute stroll from the center of town. Our room was spacious, beautifully appointed and had everything we needed for our overnight stay. The bed...

I was to stay overnight but found myself staying for three!!! It's proximity to town is a brisk 10 minutes only, making it very appealing. The hosts, Stuart and Darren are lovely, accepting and accommodating people. The room was very tidy and comfortable but it was the partially-closed veranda where I spent most of my time; overlooking the Nimbin hills...

We spent two nights at grey gum Lodge and we are very satisfied with our experience. The lodge is only at a ten minutes walk from the town; our room was clean and comfortable, the staff has been very friendly.

I so wanted to like this place and at first look I did but unfortunately it was lacking some necessary things. There was no hand towel, no face washer and no plug. Room 5 has the worst bed I have ever slept (or tried to sleep) in. Every spring could be felt and it was as hard as a rock...
