Richard was super friendly and helpful, and allowed us to check-in a little earlier. Our room was neat and tidy with everything we needed. There was in-yard secure parking and the place is secured, we had no issues at all."

"I really enjoyed my stay at this backpackers accommodation. The owner was super awesome, nice guy. Very friendly and helpful. You don't often get owners who go out of their way to make a guest feel extra welcome. I enjoyed the fact that I had my own keys to get in and out of the place. I was able to make my own food in the kitchen. The place was clean and comfortable. So was my room. The whole atmosphere was just wonderful. I look forward to going back next year, and I would recommend this place to anyone. "

"Sometimes you come across an establishment that remains with you the rest of your life. Lily Pond Backpackers is such a place - from the welcome we received, to the surprise of the spacious, immaculately clean dorm rooms, the beautiful gardens, all made for a wonderful stay. Richard and Veronica went out of their way to make things easier for our group ( and I noticed that they did that for everyone who booked in while we were there). Well done - you are an asset for the backpacking industry, and one I will always recommend!"

"For the past few months we have been traveling as a music group to PE, busy working on a concert performance coming up in January 2015.

Needless to say we have been hosted by quite a few places; some friendly and some who's customer service needs much to be desired.

Our initial contact when we inquired proved to be different Lily pond Backpackers. They were friendly, helpful and efficient. Our group was welcomed by friendly faces, warm smiles and hospitality from the owners that resulted in the whole group asking me to book the place out for the rest of our planned trips to PE!

Thank you for hosting us this weekend, and keep up the good work. Keep on smiling.

The privacy is of high standards and I can guarantee anyone that they will not regret it.

"Excellent service"

(South Africa) mbombo | 1 September 2014

"Many people need training when it comes to good service but in Lily pond it was different. Mr Richard and his wife are people's people. Yes it is business but to them they don't make it to be their main focus. They make it to be like a family thing.
Good people is easy to spot.

Safe place with clean facilities.
Lily pond is less of a bnb. It’s a home for you and me to meet other family.

4. Location is superb and very central to shops, points of historic interest & even a stroll to the beaches (for backpackers of course.)
