Our room was tired and needed to be completely refurbished. All the furnishings were old and tatty and the bathroom was tiny. The quality of the restaurant food wasn't good. Having said that the location was great. There is a nature walk and on our walk we literally came face to face with a cassowary and her chick. The owner,... More

Sorry you did not enjoy our rooms or restaurant. But very glad to hear you liked the rainforest walk and got to see a Cassowary and chick. And also to meet Doris the crocodile, Roo's and Wallabies. More

I was on a day-tour to Daintree and this was the lunch-stop. First, I got a top quality double-shot espresso as we'd left too early for the cafes to open. Second, my burger was great. Third, I got to meet the team out back - Swampy the wallaby, old Red the Roo (he's 20 years old!) and their friends. We... More

This place has it all. You are right in the rainforest . Cassowary sightings are regular, they have a croc that they feed, the walks are amazing and the food and drinks are cheap. The staff are friendly and the amenities are clean. Overseas visitors can tick a lot of boxes here. We had a powered site for motorhome with... More

We loved Lync Haven Rainforest Retreat. Such a beautiful location right beside an amazing ancient rainforest. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It's a family run business. They work really hard to provide an excellent experience. The croc feeding and kangaroo feeding was great. The rainforest walk was amazing. The restaurant was fabulous. We ate there both nights we...

We all loved the rainforest setting of this wonderful hotel. We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 young children. The room was a sufficient size, but the bathroom was very small. The café / restaurant was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner here, highly recommend it. We all loved meeting their resident crocodile Doris, the... More

We didn't stay here, but were recommended to eat here by our hosts at our B & B just down the road, in Cow Bay.

Onsite animal enclosures, great (& yet quiet) restaurant (food lovely & reasonable priced drinks) and beautiful location in the evening. Accommodation has all the basic necessities, air conditioner and car parking right out the front. Staff very friendly and laid back. Very little internet reception in the area of the accommodation (paid access at reception)
