Simply Amazing! This place is a real gem and we will definitely be back . The place is perfect for a romantic getaway with the cabins nestled in rain forest like surroundings. We had intended to cook dinner on the electric stove but instead opted for the bbq just outside the cabin entrance. My partner commented on how well presented... More

Me and my partner recently stayed in a rainforest cabin which on the website it was described as: "Rainforest cabins allow for maximum privacy, located deep in the rainforest and separate from other rainforest cabins." This was far from the truth and so misleading it's disgusting! We expected to have a private cabin away from other cabins in a secluded... More

This place has the potential to be an amazing retreat establishment. But it would require a complete revamp and change of ownership. We decided to stay here as it was the venue for a family wedding and with a baby we thought it would be good to have a unit near by so we could still attend the evening celebrations... More

We stayed overnight at Tanglewood Gardens and enjoyed the atmosphere of being in a cabin in natural rainforest country. It is not an orderly environment but it is naturally beautiful. The cabin we were in was roomy, very clean and contained all that we needed to self-cater. The barbecues on the verandah were another option for cooking. We only overnighted... More

This place is great to catch up with friends(6). There is a great BBQ at your cabin to do your own bacon and egg breakfast. Good size big outdoor area to share some nibbles before going to town for dinner. We shared a maxi taxi and went to Mapelton to a little Italien restaurant. Fare was one way $15 restaurant... More

We had our wedding and Tanglewood Gardens recently, the venue is amazing! Everything you need all in the one spot. Beautiful forest areas, the garden paths between the cabins are so lovely to walk along and the rooms themselves full of charm (just bear in mind that forests have bugs!). We were able to use the beautiful chapel for our... More

We booked 2 nights in the Rainforest Cabin. A very dated & dingy room and a musty odour. The facilities are completely shocking, they have obviously not been maintained to a useable standard. Would not recommend paying $155 a night to stay here.

My husband and I organised to stay at the Tanglewood Gardens on Valentine's Day evening (14/02/2014) as we began our road trip up north. We booked 1 night in the Rainforest Cabin which was advertised on their website as "Rainforest cabins allow for maximum privacy, located deep in the rainforest and separate from other rainforest cabins."

P & K Harris: If you come to Tanglewood Gardens expecting a 5-star Hilton experience then frankly you're pretty deluded. This is economy bush cabin accommodation in fine form, and you need to give allowances when you stay here. Tanglewood may not be perfect (as most of these negative reviewers are obviously expecting perfection for a 3.5 star rating) but... More
