The Hotel has a very nice pool area and is situated within a tropical garden.
The hotel is overpriced. Rooms are very basic and not to the standard you would expect at this price. The electrical equipment in the kitchen was in a miserable state. one should expect that the manager recognize and fix such things.
The conference setup and layout of resort
My booking on line was for 2 rooms for 1 night. The booking received at the hotel was for 1 room for 2 nights.
Friendly staff were willing to overcome the problems we first encountered.
Road in, grouting in bathroom dirty and damaged, floors dirty. Walls stained and wet. Food overprised, muddy path outside dangerous and tracking inside. General air of decay and grubbyness.
In a lovely natural area. Waking up to the sounds of the rainforest.You must remember that you are in the natural rainforest and things aren't as clean and prestine as if you were in a town. You have to expect things falling on your head or on our plate or entering your room.
Accurat description by reception staff on how to find my room
Poor service and slow and incorrect meal delivery times at restaurant
Liked the location in the middle of the Daintree, and its laid back style of accommodation
It needs a bit of a refurbish - linen and general room area smelt a bit stale and musty.
It was a perfect location. We hiked to Mt Sorrow lookout and did a night walk in the rainforest and walked on the beach at Cape Tribulation. The surroundings were beautiful.
Limited cocktails available.
Tired room with dated and worn furnishings. Boardwalk to rooms was being repaired and had tools all over it.
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
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
