    Tired room with dated and worn furnishings. Boardwalk to rooms was being repaired and had tools all over it.

  • Older travelers

    Best thing about the hotel is its beautiful gardens and its proximity to Cape Trib.

    I can't decide if it's a backpackers or a hotel. We thought we were booking into a hotel but the two person cabins ($98 AU pr) were not clean, very basic and there was no housekeeping service provided. However, other guests who had booked into the resort's 'jungle tents' and found themselves upgraded to a 4 person cabin thought their $20 AU pp was a bargain. The hotel provides a rudimentary communal kitchen and will hire crockery/cutlery sets for a $10 AU deposit - unfortunately I was half way to Cairns before I realised the receptionist had 'omitted' to give me the refund.

    Friendly staff & immaculately clean room which was beautifully cold in such humidity. We had a fantastic stay. Thankyou. One of the best parts of our 4 week holiday.

    The unclean wooden tables for breakfast with ants and bird-poo on them - maybe invest in some paper coverings.

    Relaxing, quiet, beautiful landscape

    Continental breakfast was not good, no variety, no cold meats/cheeses etc

  • Family with children

    I loved the grounds and gardens and architecture

    Beautiful surroundings - a bit "tired" & would benefit from a re-vamp.

    No television in the rooms! The food in the cafe was fantastic - you could classify it as a restaurant...really delicious!

    The rooms smelt a little mouldy... but I guess that's what you get being situated smack-bang in the middle of a rainforest :)

    There was a hole in the wall which we had to stuff paper in to stop insects coming into the room

  • Family with children

    Walking distance to the beach and town centre, while still being smack bang in the rainforest. Fresh towels supplied daily

    Poor lighting both in the room and outside along pathways. Lack of maintanence and upkeep. Rooms smelt of mould and need a decent clean

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Staff were pleasant and helpful. The natural landscape setting was visually pleasant and relaxing.

    The room though clean had very hard bed with a zip-up centre (2 bed joined together) on a tinber slat base that had zero comfort factor. The toilet was leaking at the base. there was only one available power point for the kettle which was not evident so should be somehow signed.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    the bed was good, and the food was very good.

    The room was very sparsely furnished. No bedside table, poor lighting, no complementry water in fridge, no drinking glasses in room, very little storage . very poor lighting along walking paths from rooms to restaurant, unsafe!!

    it's position but the actual place is very run down it has certainlybeen let go which is a shame

    Room I was in looked tired & shabby

  • Family with children

    A great away-from-it-all location in the rainforest. Lovely cabins, quite basic but with everything you need. Two lovely pools and great restaurant with friendly, helpful staff. Night walk in the rainforest not to be missed.

  • Couple

    The staff in the cafe were friendly and good service and the location was nice. The lunch was wonderful and dessert at dinner was fantastic. The iPod dock in the room was useful too.

    The food at dinner was terrible. The room was dirty with stains on the bedding and the room smelled stale and musty. The bed that was advertised as a king was acctually two very uncomfortable single matresses put together that u could feel the spings in. The shower was very poor with no water pressure only a drip and it was either boiling hot or freezing cold and the occassions the we managed to get it to a resonable temperature it went ice cold after about 20 seconds. There was also still water in the jug when we arrived this should be emptied after every stay for health reasons. All in all we where very disapointed with our stay and will not be returning. We were especially disapointed with the $198 a night we payed for such poor facilities and room.

  • Older travelers

    It was dirty. The TV was missing. No phone only a plug. No comfortable seat in the room. Gaps in the door sealing (bugs?). The taps leaked. The door panel was flapping on thje bathroom door.......... etc. At dinner the waiter wore a grubby T shirt, boots and shorts. When he served the entree at the same time as the main he siad " you didn't say you wanted them seperately"... Good otherwise

    See above. I have never stayed in a grubbier, worse run hotel/motel. It is odd though that the reception process was efficient and well done. The room and the meal were bad. That is not quite fair. The food that was served was fine.
