The property was in a nice location but it was worn out and very basic for the price

The staff were excellent. On arrival, the staff member organized for our tour pickup to be from the accommodation rather than a location some 15 minutes drive away. The food at Lync-Haven was delicious especially the chips!!

Pros: nothing
Cons: lots
there was no internet and the advertised WiFi but there was none. They wanted to charge for room service on top of the accommodation They did not honor the Wotif Price so we had to pay extra

Spent one one here after a full day in cape trib . Room was big enough for the family . Everything was tidy and clean apart from the fans which are caked in dust. Ate at the restaurant which had a good selection and all meals were great. Freindly staff and pleasant surrounding with the birds outside the store . Would have liked to stay longer:-)

Tranquil stay in Daintree

Pros: Location, cleanliness of unit, quiet.
Cons: Hair dryer in the room would be a bonus!
Location: Has boardwalk and small trails behind the property, good location to explore Cape Trib area.
Was great place to stay- quiet and rooms were spotless. Kids loved having all the wildlife in the reception area and the wallaby enclosure not far from our unit. Missed out on the wildlife feeding as doesn't happen on Monday mornings apparently. Only negative - no Wifi access at all for guests even though website says this is available in lounge area. Apparently not enough data. Food at the restaurant for dinner was great and good sized portions!

Great spot for nature lovers!

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 kids, having visited on previous occasions as young travellers...we knew the kids would love it and they did! Great base to explore the region and lots of nature walks and animals onsite too. Accommodation was comfy and clean and the food at the cafe was great!
