I stayed in one of the lodges already some years ago, but I still remember it as the worst place I have ever stayed in: the lodge was full of spiders and other bugs, it was dark and filthy, it stank (it was very humid), and the place was very run-down. Unless there has been a renovation recently (which I do not think is the case, by looking at the pictures in their website), I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Do not get lured by the wildlife viewing: Yes, you do get to see some rainforest kangaroos and possums... but, beware: they are not genuinely wild anymore. They are regurarly fed, so that they keep on coming for the tourists!.
I would never in my life stay there again: If you cannot sleep and feel so unconfortable, is no fun anymore.
