We spent last weekend in a rainforest cabin at Tanglewood Gardens. Upon arriving at 7pm, we thought what a lovely-looking place it was, little cottages set in the rainforest gardens.. then we stepped into our cabin and were assaulted with an overwhelming mouldy smell. Clearly the owners had attempted to mask it with a hidden air freshener behind the chair... More

It was a private retreat in the rainforest, We enjoyed our stay in a rainforest cabin. It was a little bit run down and could do with a little bit more tlc but over all we liked it. I think lily pond needs a pump to stop the water being stagnant. Reception also needs some attending to as first impression... More

Simply put I seriously advise everyone to stay well away from this disgusting health hazard dump of a place. Be warned DO NOT book this accommodation!. Mouldy, disgustingly dirty and there website has very misleading photos of the accommodation.

I took my husband here for a romantic weekend when he got the all clear from a terminal illness that he has. If I could have given this no stars I would have. The lady at reception should not be there it was quite evident that she didn't want to be either. The car was parked and my husband and... More

Deciding to get away for Valentine's Day before the weekend, we booked one night (11th February) at Tanglewood Gardens on a whim. The young couple working in reception were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and homely. Whilst there was no wifi offered, it was good to have time away from Facebook and enjoy the surroundings. We... More

Looking for a budget stay in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland, just 5 minutes drive to quaint Montville, easy walk. We had a cabin next to the pool, spa and sauna, twin room with full kitchen, laundry facilities, open fire for winter. Outside area to enjoy the rainforest serenity but close to the cabin next door so if you had... More

If you're using an iPhone to give you directions, this place is actually in Flaxton, not Mapleton. Stayed in the studio room (under the chapel) and found the room to be a little bit outdated. Walking in, the toilet was outdated and the grout was a bit mouldy and need of a good bleach, but otherwise relatively clean. The kitchenette... More

Worst stay ever,room full of mould and un maintained furnishings. Mould in every cupboard and under paintwork in every room. Tried to find other accommodation but was long weekend. Had to put heaters on to try and cover the stench. Bought candles from local IGA to help cover the vial smell. Did not use cutlery or any kitchen items as... More

Had a 2 night stay with family and granddaughter in a 2 bed cabin. Firstly the smoke detector was in the 3rd drawer of the kitchen, really unbelievable. Cabin was full of mould, spiders and not very clean at all. The whole place smelt of mould. Ants in kitchen and bath. No spare toilet paper or even extra tea bags???... More
