Noorla Heritage Resort
Ranked #2 of 5 Ingham B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Don't miss the Noorla! Especially if you value vintage accommodation. Wonderful to see such authentic restoration. The bedrooms are so comfortable and inviting. Think Gatsby! A wonderful opportunity to take in the wild Wallaman Falls and come back to such welcoming hosts Joe & Jennie and enjoy a fine wine or just stay and enjoy.

We stayed at the Noorla whilst in Ingham for an equestrian competition. The accommodation is truly spectacular. The rooms have been renovated with an accuracy that fully respects the history of this grand old building. The beds are extremely comfortable and the host's hospitality made the stay very enjoyable. We had a delightful time in a real piece of North Queensland history.

We were so taken with our last stay at Noorla. There is so much character and it has been recently refurbished to enhance its historical features. This is our third stay here as we travel often up to Cairns and we will continue to return. So many special personal touches have been made through out the building. There are interesting collections and the owners make you feel very welcome. It's like being taken back in time where old fashioned hospitality is intermingled with intelligent conversation. This place is void of the sterile environment you often encounter when travelling. We had opportunities to meet other visitors and we could get away on our own in the beautiful grounds as well. There are many little nooks waiting for someone to find so you have your own delightful space to have a cup of tea or just enjoy the birds. We did that each morning. The rooms are tastefully done and have a romantic feel about them.To really appreciate the building, the people and the local area, you need a few days here at least. We love staying in historical places all over the world and this is one of the most memorable ones. This place oozes romance and is a great setting for a special get away. It was perfect for our anniversary treat to ourselves and we highly recommend it.

As soon as you drive into the Noorla heritage resort, you can feel the tasteful old world ambiance. Greeted by hosts Jennie and Joe, as a single traveller, I felt very welcome and safe. My room had a beautiful heritage four-poster bed with tasteful furnishings and old world charm. The balcony where I enjoyed a leisurely drink with other guests overlooks the gardens and catches the evening breeze. The dining room, with its unique tiled floor is like walking into an Italian villa. Early morning I walked around the Ingham wetlands and took a day trip to the rain forest. The Noorla and the natural beauty of the surrounding area were a highlight of my trip.

To begin, we did camp rather than use the hotel, but the neighbourhood is still the same and the night we spent listening to the bass pumping from the neighbours party house would have sounded the same if were from a tent or hotel room at the Noorla.
Noise aside, we were told to pitch up anywhere to the rear of the hotel which happened to be a poorly maintained back garden, only to be told "no, sorry, no not the car". I guessed from this welcome from the landlady that she didn't like the car ruining the view of the adjacent power generator and dumped car that we had pitched next to.
Not to be put off by our welcome we went into the hotel to request a booking for breakfast in the morning to which the reply "no, sorry, no, we have a group in?"
We hadn't been told where the amenities were but managed to find them under a red light next to the hotels labourers cabin. One toilet that also had a shower and laundry in the same room.
We stayed only the one night rather than the 2 we had paid for.
The hotel itself was delapidated and run-down although in fairness, was undergoing some kind of renovation and we didn't get to see what the guest rooms were like.
If we camp in the area again we will go back to the trusty Queensland national park.

We had booked over the internet the night before. When we arrived we were told our family room was not available, and offered an upgrade to somoe other rooms. It was like staying in your grandmas best room. So much character and atmosphere. This is not however 5 star lavish accommodation, it is historic accomodation and is for those who like a bit of an adventure from the normal run of the mill hotel. The rooms were very quiet, and bathroom was as you would expect for something built 100 years ago in outback OZ. Yes water does get on the floor from the shower over the bath, that is part of the charm of such accommodation.

Look, I'm sure it's fine for some people, but the way it was set out, didn't suit us. The photos we saw on line are not accurate. It has been renovated, but it seemed run down to us. There were cobwebs in the room, dead flies along the picture rail and everything is closed by 10 PM. There is a 'bar' that's not open for service when we were there, and a dining room that closed at 10 PM, leaving the only place to sit and chat was an upstairs landing. With other guests staying, we didn't want to talk to loud in case we woke them up. It wasn't nice when the owner had a go at my partner for using another toilet.
There are no couches in the room we stayed in, which meant that you couldn't sit and talk in your room. There were no bins either anywhere to be found, not even in the bathroom. The bathroom was small, and when you showered, the water got all over the floor - and this made going to the toilet difficult.
We stayed a night and moved to the Tropixx. We lost money by staying here, it's a long way back from the main street, closes early, the owner was a bit nasty, and for us it was a mistake. We booked on line without contacting them, a mistake. A room that is two rooms side by side using one bathroom in one room is always going to be tricky. ALl the rooms are upstairs, so if you've got mobility problems or are elderly, best to stay somewhere else.
When I'm in Ingham again, I'll be staying at the Tropixx. This was a dirty and not pleasant place for us to stay. I got the feeling that the owners are also acting as cleaners, and that's why it's not as clean as other places we've stayed in.
