Great relaxing stay with helpful and friendly staff. Excellent bushwalks in every direction from your eco-friendly cabin. Can't recommend this place enough, just make sure you bring some mosquito repellant!

Nice place to stay and great place to chill out and relax. The rooms are comfortable and the hammock and day beds are great for reading and snoozing. The walks are ok and swimming in the pools on the river are a must (just not when raining). The staff are v attentive and helpful. The restaurant has a great setting... More

We have just come back from spending 6 days at the Silky Oaks Lodge. It was amazing, the food sensational, staff fabulous and facilities wonderful. It has been a long time since we have had such amazing service as we got from the Staff. The resort itself is fabulous, layback, relaxing and peaceful. From water holes to an amazing pool.... More

What can I say. We came here for the first stop of our honeymoon and we were a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong,it is a beautiful and amazing, sitting on the Mossam River is spectacular. The waters are so clear and inviting. The idea of the double hammock sounded great but the balcony of our tree house was small... More

I stayed for a few months solo in June and it was a great experience. The whole place most definitely has the forest theme and it was almost like a National Geographic shoot. Don't make the mistake I did of not spending enough time at the Lodge itself, with the great walks and the river to swim in. One of... More

As part of our package tour, we stopped at Silky Oaks Lodge for lunch. Lunch was pre-ordered so the service was swift and very edible. A stroll along the adjoining Mossman River after lunch was extremely scenic and refeshing.

Based on accommodate alone, I would have rated Silky Oaks higher (we really loved our room even though there wasn't enough hot water to fill a bath!) two things turned us right off; firstly, the breakfast was terrible (concentrated cheap packet juice, poor quality breads, bad coffee) which at $700 per night is just totally unacceptable (we provided feedback to...

We stayed two nights at Silky Oaks and loved this quaint hotel!! Set in what feels like the middle of a rainforest, each little room is sweet and homey. This hotel is laid-back with great service and wonderful food! If you love fish, you'll enjoy the nice variety of daily fish they offer. We would recommend the River view rooms... More

We visited this venue as part of a rainforest tour. When I read the brief I was expecting a wooden hut with old fashioned seating and basic service. As soon as we entered the beautifully landscaped grounds we knew we were in good hands but we were still not prepared for the luxury setting and gourmet food to be included... More

I have just spent two nights here with my wife. We were in one of the deluxe tree houses which was nicely tucked away beyond the tennis court. It was spacious and comfortable with a great spa bathroom. Everyone who looked after us was very friendly and helpful. However, it is the setting that makes the lodge so special -... More
