Friendly husband and wife team, but overall upkeep of the Zoo area was poor. Needs a bit more effort in this area.

Lovely bed and breakfast with a unique experience

The staff were friendly and helpful. We got to see the crocodiles being fed after breakfast. Gil recommended some local sights to see that were perfect for us. The room was spacious and comfortable. Overall a great place to stay for a getaway.

No go due to illness.

Thankyou for asking for a review. We could not go due to the inability for my wife to negotiate the steps to the accommodation. The accommodation we booked was on the ground floor, but we then found out this was for backpackers. The proprietor phoned use to tell us the bad news. He also informed us there is a no refund on this accommodation. We lost our money. Read the small print. The ad in your website gives a false image of the accommodation.

B&B inside zoo

Zoo had heaps of animals, although the zoo itself is a bit run down in places. Poor dingos were in a enclosure right at the back corner and in need of abit of TLC the poor things probably never get looked at or walked. Tariff is abit pricey considering that the rooms all have share facilities and should include the zoo (entry is half price). Host wasn't overly friendly and didnt seem very tolerant of little kids.Was still an activity worth doing and something different to other accom and b&b's.

Perfect for animal and zoo lovers

Pros: Room looking onto pool and zoo was large and comfortable
Cons: Considering it was a family business, built by them. Well done, a stay with interesting extras.
Location: Great restaurant down the road. Kick off point for Daintree and Cape Tribulation.
We found our stay comfortable, with my husband enjoying the zoo very much and me enjoying the pool
