We stayed for 2 nights with our daughter, son in law and 2,small children. We had everything we needed and more. Pretty gardens, safe for children, very clean, comfortable cottages, could have stayed longer. We were made very welcome, nothing too much trouble for the owner; don't know where else you'd have complimentary wine and all the additional bits you... More

So much choice for accommodation in Yungaburra, but I don't think you could do much better than these lovely cottages. Our hosts Rob and Melanie were so thoughtful in all that was provided for our stay of 2 nights. They joined the guests for happy hour on Saturday night, in the lovely outdoor lounge area, but as we were the... More

Terrific hosts who are justifiably proud of their establishment. Immaculate cottages, grounds and facilities. First on our list of places to stay on the Tablelands. Located in the heart of Yungaburra within walking distance to everything in town.

I would thoroughly recommend Allumbah Pocket Cottages. My husband and I stayed for a four-night package and enjoyed it so much that we booked another night in preference to staying at Kuranda or Cairns as we had planned. This place was exactly what we were looking for with private, well-maintained, self-contained and air-conditioned cottages at a very reasonable price set... More

We came back to stay after a great visit in Winter. When we entered the cottage we were met by a horrid smell and found the rubbish bin full. No extra bags anywhere so we improvised. First thing we did was have a spa bath and once submerged we couldn't help notice the vomit stains around the outside of the... More

What a terrible review. Can hardly believe it. I do wish you had fronted reception and asked us to come and look at the state of the cottage when you moved in, as all I can say is we find it incredulous... horrible smell, vomit round toilet? full bin? dirty shower, dust, cracked glass... its a nightmare. I honestly don't... More

My husband and I are from Cairns and recently spent two nights at this gorgeous tropical retreat. It's so peaceful and private, the cottages have old world charm, tastefully furnished with a fabulous king sized bed, spotlessly clean and the bathroom is huge with a lovely spa. The owners Rob and Melanie are so friendly and obliging, the goats milk... More

We were very 'underwhelmed' by this posting. Lots of unfair criticism which we now wear forever. For the world to know.... we supply our guests with goat milk soap and shampoo and conditioner. it costs us about 3 times more to supply this than commercial off the rack hotel toiletries; the soap is small but the same size as you...

We were very excited about our stay after reading the website with promises of goats milk toiletries, beautiful bread baskets and luxury accommodation. Unfortunately it wasn't quite this - only 2 pieces of small soap and the shampoo and conditioner in large container in shower, no body lotions or spa bubbles. The bread basket was a piece of brown bread... More

We are sorry that your stay was marred by disappointment. The two areas you raised were the toiletries are substandard; but they are all goat milk, which costs us more than the off the rack selection, and we buy local, hence unable to source goat milk hand lotions in the sizes required... the shampoo and conditioner is goatmilk and in...

The Allumbah Pocket Cottages, was a pleasant surprise. The room was spotless, with everything thought out by the hosts, including fresh milk, cold water, tea and all different sorts of pillows to choose from, soft to very hard. I was impressed by the lovely manicured grounds with lovely hammock seats to relax in or you can enjoy the outdoor tv... More

My husband and I stayed last weekend. The cottages are lovely. On beautiful well kept grounds. The cottages are private clean and cozy. Was so nice to have a fire and look out at our own private courtyard garden. Enjoyed a spa also looking out though glass louvers to a beautiful garden. The bathroom was spacious and bed was comfy...
