We had a great stay here for 2 nights with a family of 4. Room was comfortable, as were the beds. Kids loved the extensive dvd collection. Staff were very friendly. Dinner in the restaurant was one of the best meals we had during our entire FNQ trip.

Pros: Fabulous staff

Old, noisy air conditioning, dated fixtures throughout, cracked tiles in the bathroom> Mould on upper louvrverers and higher ceilings. Beds not particularly comfortable and for a family room - 2 chairs, tiny table, minute T.V and no seating other thsn the brre

Great location for the Daintree

Amazing creek and surroundings! The staff were fantastic. I would like to have seen a little more attention to detail in the room, ie remove cobwebs and dust before guests arrive but overall was a great location and an enjoyable stay

Beautiful surrounds

Lovely area, right in the rainforest. The creek winding around was great for a swim. The fish were very friendly!

Surrounded by rainforest

Spectacular setting where you drive in a narrow entrance with huge trees on either side. You feel deep within the rainforest. Our meal at the restaurant was excellent. We really enjoyed both the steak and the fish. The next nights Anthony kindly organised the bbq area for our use. Great location close to Thornton beach near the river tour. The boardwalks were and easy drive and well worth the walk. We loved zip lining in the jungle. It gave the best vantage of the rainforest and was very professionally run. The staff at the Heritage were particularly kind and helpful. Christie was so enthusiastic about all the various activities. A wonderful experience.

Amazing place surrounded by rainforest

You are surrounded by the rainforest in this beautiful location. Everyone was helpful and kind especially Christie and Anthony. So enthusiastic! Dinner was scrumptious surrounded by rainforest looking over the creek and waterhole. They kindly set up the bbq area for the other nights. I loved the rainforest walks, the birds and butterflies. Jungle surfing is well worth the experience. The boardwalks are close by and fabulous. We even saw 4 crocodiles on the cruise. Great holiday location.

A secluded little slice of rainforest paradise

Pros: Its proximity to the rainforest!
Cons: A bit more options at Breakfast........better coffee :(
Location: AMAZING! Nestled in the beautiful rainforest. Cape Tribulation is a short drive away as well as the Daintree Discovery Centre.
Our family of 4 stayed here for 2 nights and loved the tranquillity and isolation of this hidden gem. It had a beautiful open restaurant overlooking the natural swimming hole below. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The location is very central to walking trails, swimming holes and the beach. The rainforest and wildlife were in abundance and it was heaven to step out from your doorstep and experience the amazing Daintree. The cabins are clean and comfortable......just a note there is no mobile phone reception, TV or wifi which was perfect for us to escape reality!
