Not a good place

Not a good place to stay, the lighting was terrible in the room, the bathroom flooded when we had a shower, the person that runs the motel was rude. There was no power points near the bed which I need for my sleep machine. It says it has wifi however when we got there no wifi or phone service. I can live without the phone service but not wifi when the website clearly says wifi. Also room was meant to be a smoking room couldn’t smoke in it, we were fine with that so we asked about the veranda if we could smoke on there, we were told no, why are you even asking? The area for the pool had no lighting and if people were going to swim in it at night it’s hard to see in the area.

Some effort needed to make it better

Lovely room, lacklustre staff, some really friendly others could care less. Seemed to be a different person every day . Nobody explained how Wi-Fi worked till day before we left on a 5 night stay. Room unequiped - 1 teaspoon and 1 bread and butter knife, no extra blanets or even a toaster. Designated parking would have been nice. Beds comfortable. Food in restaurant ok although cook didn't know meaning of med rare but still tasted good. Lights go out at 8pm so eat early.

Pros: The red haired lady was lovely and very helpful.
Cons: The bathroom.
It was all good, but it was hard to control the temperature in the shower, and water went all over the floor in the bathroom area, because the drain wasn't sufficient.

Great Staff

The staff are wonderful, the facilities and what's available wasn't- no spare blankets in winter, no milk for coffee or tea in fridge; it felt as though I was forgotten about.

A top spot!

Pros: Great room... the balcony overlooking the creek etc was a bonus. Great meals available in the hotel. Lovely location.
Cons: The bed was uncomfortable and the sheets pilled and rough. Used soap and face washer were left in shower from previous guests.
Location: Perfect spot to unwind with no phone service but still very close to Kuranda and exploring the region.

This accommodation suited our needs

Pros: Convienient
Cons: Pillows were far to soft and towels etc. were only replaced on request
Location: Ideal for all the attractions eg. Butterfly Sanctuary,Skyrail,Markets,Rain Forest Walks,Rain Forest Station and many more.
The accommodation here was very convienient for us reason being family lived nearby.
