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

The only thing that saved this trip away was that we were able to catch up with my family and have a nice get together - which was a pure delight. The accommodation was very run down and the staff were not interested in helping unless pushed, our time away seemed to be filled with incident after incident - ran... More

Wonderful rainforest beauty in a quite remote location. Kids were fascinated with an open fire in a fireplace in the lounge room. The downtime was that the wood wasn't provided, there is a gas station close by were you can by the wood at $15 a bag. The proximity of Montville and Maleni was a big plus, otherwise there is...

Our experience here was not pleasant at all. My wife, 16 month old daughter and I, walked into our ‘secluded’ room (which wasn’t secluded by the way) after receiving the key only to find that the floor had not been vacuumed AT ALL. There were dead moths in the corners and in the open living space, our feet were also... More

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
