We booked 5 rooms for a night with a group of friends. It was perfect for us. Very comfortable and charming rooms, great communal entertaining areas, and Darren's hospitality is superb. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Nimbin!!!

Stayed week-end before Mardi Grass with quite a few young ones in town early. Stayed in Room 5 which has doors out to corridor & verandah. Large clean room with spacious ensuite. Only a small issue with young party guests on verandah but they gave us a giggle, had a word to them & they quietened down & were respectful.

Daryl and Stu are friendly and cool hosts. A great little spot in a great town. Grey gum is a short walk from town, and has the best of vibes, clean and comfortable. I'll definitely be back. Easy peasy stay!

What a lovely place to stay! The host, Darren, was friendly and charming and gave us a great tip for dinner. We were in a rush to get to a wedding so he took our bags from us and set them up in our room, ready for us when we got back. There were three of us in the room...

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.

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.
