“The Wicksteeds at Tropical Escapes B and B”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

We liked this place from the word go! It's very clean and well set out in colonial style with spacious rooms and situated in a peaceful natural environment - near the beach (which is really nice), breakfast is first class and hosts Dot and Noel are charming - they enjoy their guests! We've stayed at lots of B and B around the world and this experience is one of the best. It makes the Rydges Resort at Port Douglas look like a 3 star hostel!

We stayed here 2 nights in August. It was very clean, had a large bedroom and close to the beach. The hosts could not be more hospitable and were extremely helpful in recommending things to do and assisting with our BBQ one night. Would definitely recommend to others.

My wife and I (Martha) literally ended up at A tropical Escape in Mission Beach after a bad booking elsewhere.... . We just loved the house and the surrounds, the room itself was private and quiet. Nothing was a problem including a large DVD collection we used after spending hours down the beach. The hosts were fantastic and were very helpful. We are looking forward to going back!! As a musician the owner Noel was more than happy to let me use his guitar! PARADISE !!! The breakfast was fantastic and we just felt so at home we didn't want to leave!

We stayed here by accident when Agoda messed up our hotel booking, meaning that we had to find somewhere else to stay. Fortunately A Tropical Escape (recommended by the place we were supposed to have stayed) had availability and the owners very kindly made up the room for us at very short notice.
I don't normally like to stay in B&Bs - I often find it uncomfortable, staying in a stranger's home. However, Dot and Noel were so friendly, and it was such a lovely place, that this was not an issue. The rooms feel very private, and are separate from the owners' living areas, so you don't feel as if you are intruding! (In fact Noel told us it was built specifically for that purpose).
The room was large, very clean and well furnished. The breakfast was an added bonus.
Overall, highly recommended.

We really enjoyed totally the 2 days we spent here. Huge living room, beautiful own room, the most comfortable bed of whole Australia and all absolutely clean (said by Germans).
And if this was not enough our hosts were lovely and helpful at all the time.
Thanks a lot !

We stayed at this wonderful Bed & Breakfast for a night. I wish it could have been longer. Dot and Noel were extremely good hosts. The breakfast was really yummy. There was a great pool table and lovely swimming pool. The room was very spacious and had every thing you could wish for. We went to Blarnys Restaurant just down the road for dinner which was very good.
