    The cabins were clean and comfortable. There was a very friendly staff and the restaurant proved a varied and delicious menu. The staff was able to book other tours for us.

    The location is beautiful and the restaurant is very cool. The rooms have pretty dated bathrooms and overall could do with a revamp for the money. The river is lovely to swim in and there is a great selection of movies you can borrow to watch in your room

    Basic rooms in the Rainforest with swim creek

    We stayed 2 nights after ALOT of online research looking for accommodation for a family of 4. Our criteria was somewhere where we could all sleep in one cabin and had a restaurant. The Heritage Lodge (and Spa has been removed from their business cards) is about 25 mins from the ferry. Restaurant dinner was very high quality and price reflects (Around $40 / main). Pool is small and unheated but swim in the 2 swimming holes. A crystal clear, croc free creek runs at the back of the hotel and wa great for a swim and skimming stones. The rooms are very clean and unfortunately in pairs (so you do hear next door). They are dated and basic....but youre in the rainforest! Most other places in Cape Tribulation are camping or self-catering. Loved no WiFi and no mobiles - great choosing a DVD from the HuGE selection and watching together after a busy day in the rainforest. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area and helped booking activities (by landline!). Breakfast was a fruit salad, toast/bread and cereals. Enjoyed our stay. A special place. Feels expensive for the quality....but you're in the Rainforest!!

    Daintree escape

    Lovely quiet Daintree garden setting. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings in a special part of the world. Dinner and breakfast on the deck is very relaxing

    Had an enjoyable stay. The room is a bit rustic, as expected, and was satisfactory. Air conditioned if needed, but open windows were sufficient at this time of year. Beautiful natural setting and very quiet except for seed pods dropping onto the tin roofs. Wonderful swim hole in the nearby creek. The creek was the best part of our stay and our girls loved it. Continental breakfast was sufficient (toast/jams, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, small pancakes, coffee/tea/juices). Mattresses are hard. Lovely stay. Restaurant dinner was good, but on the expensive side.

    Simple but perfect base for a couple of nights

    The Daintree is wild! This was a great place to stay right in the middle of things with easy access to beaches and the rainforest. The room was simple and clean. Due to the area facilities were limited, but staff were brilliant and accommodated our needs. Restaurant was good- portions were huge and food very tasty. Real rainforest experience, in the middle of things we saw birds, spiders, huge ants and a python! Frogs croaking in the background made this a magical place.

    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.
