My partner and I came here for an overnight stay to escape city life. We venture to this area of the world often but have never stayed overnight. We are so pleased we chose Crofton's Retreat for our little getaway. The location is second to none, you are completely surrounded by beautiful green fields and mountains. The air is so... More

Only 4 kms from Nimbin. We were welcomed by animals and hosts. The unit was well appointed but not pretentious. Beds and pillows were extremely comfortable.Seating on the veranda was a good spot at the end of the day giving the opportunity to meet other guests if you were so inclined. A short drive into town if you want dinner.... More

Crofton's Retreat is a working 88 acre farm just outside Nimbin. It is a beautiful, peaceful & healing place with no traffic noises at all. Your hosts will make sure you are comfortable & you really could not find 2 people who are more genuine & caring. If you really want a great rest, and time to take in the... More

I can highly recommend Crofton's Retreat. The surrounds are picture perfect with the wild life and of course the cows, chooks and most importantly their two beautiful dogs. Our dog was welcomed everywhere. The hosts provided exceptional hospitality, always ready to assist in any way. The room was very comfortable and we slept well. We will be back!! Thank you... More

We wanted somewhere to stay with two 7 year old boys and a dog for two nights to explore the surrounding area. This place was perfect. The boys loved the flowing creek and we made a fire near it. There was a pool , not a luxury pool at all, but the boys loved it. There were wallabies and chickens... More

Such a lovely peaceful location, close to town and the rooms are very comfortable and well presented. The owner Paul is a wonderful host and we were made very welcome. Perfect place to rest, refresh and take the time to recharge your batteries.

"What a beautiful place" - Thats what i said whilst driving in. Unfortunately, there isn't a huge selection of hotels in this Nimbin. Thanks to TripAdvisor, my girlfriend and I decided that we should stay at Croftons. The hotel is a short drive away from the town of Nimbin. It is highly recommended that you have your own vehicle if... More
