“Nice, but not too private”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2006

Stayed for three nights in one of their hotel style apartments. The rest of the resort was booked out. So this is my only criticism of the resort. Try not staying in the hotel style apartments. They are bunched together in groups of eight. Four floors on the bottom , four floors on top. We had a bottom floor. And we could here everthing from the top floor. AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.......

Overall , it is a pleasant resort. The staff are generally friendly, however we got kcked out of their restuarant at 9:15, as it was a slow Thursday night. But the food was excellent..

Pay a little extra , and stay in one of the villas. Would be a great place for children, so I'm sure it is full of them during the holiday periods.
Only a five minute drive from the centre of Yamba.
(For a good cheap curry, go to the Spice Rack.)

Would return if only a villa was available.....

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2006

We only had one night here in July 2006 but thought it was lovely. A great setting and beautifully quiet retreat. The weather was a little cold for swimming but the pool looked inviting.

We booked a standard 2 bedroomed villa and got a good deal including a hot buffet breakfast through Wotif(-).

The villa was very large and comfortable and I loved waking up in the morning to the rainforest sounds - I really felt away from it all. Breakfast was extensive and tasty with a full selection of hot offerings, cereal and toast and preserves. Lots of juices and hot drinks too. My daughter particularly like the conveyor toaster and would happily have cooked toast for the whole resort.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly; to the extent that when there were problems with the internet connection in the cafe, they let us use their own computers!

Would definitely like to spend more time here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2006

I stayed at the Angourie Rainforest Resort for 3 nights in April 06 with my husband and 3 children. What a great, comfortable place to stay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom deluxe villa. The accommodation was spacious, serviced daily and very comfortable. The children had an absolutely fabulous time. The facilities were great for children (ours aged 3, 5 & 11). My husband and I dined at the restaurant on our first night and found the food and service second to none. (Although sadly I believe that there may now be a change of management). The resort is a few minutes drive out of Yamba, and a few minutes drive to Angourie (between the 2 in fact). My mother-in-law stayed in the one bedroom unit and it was lovely and modern. My only bug bear is that the villas and the resort in general are adorned with a garish aqua paint which actually screams out to be covered over with a more subtle colour. We recommend this place to stay for couples, families, everyone.
It's not 5 star, but its very good. (We also ordered room service one night and the food was delivered on schedule and was of a pleasing standard).
