It certainly is everything other reviewers say - wonderful views, idyllic setting, peaceful and a wonderful host.
But there were a few minor quibbles - it really needs fly (mosquito) screens - the mozzies were unbearable, the rooms are quite small and I missed the bird and animal interaction we had found in the Atherton tablelands.
Carmen prefers not to encourage them and as such it is a very quite and peaceful atmosphere.
The main problem in the area is not so much Cockatoo Hill but the lack of quality restaurants within a reasonable distance.
The closest ones where we had lunch and dinner were absolute shockers and when you are paying the tariffs at Cockatoo Hill, you would normally expect to find reasonable restaurants nearby.
Cockatoo Hill does not have any cooking facilities such as we had in the Tablelands so you are forced to suffer with very ordinary local cafes.
