We stayed two nights in a twin share motel room, with complimentary half hour use of the private spa each day. The room was very good.... spacious, big bathroom, kitchenette well equipped with utensils and crockery and cutlery, comfortable double beds, oil heater, large glass entry doors, Austar TV. The staff at reception both days were very pleasant, even though always busy. The location is good, within walking distance to the shopping centre (as it is!). Plenty of parking.
It is a big complex and there are busloads of backpackers coming in and out daily. We were lucky to be in the last motel room in the block furthest away from the backpacker lodgings so noise from them was not an issue.
However.....!! the noise from the motel unit directly above us was shocking. Every footstep, every dropped item, every flush of toilet, every shower noise was as though the people were going to come through the ceiling at any time. This noise interfered with our sleep badly both nights and others in the ground floor units also complained.
The Rainforest Retreat was good value at $90 for a lovely big motel room but insist, if you can, on staying in the furthest motel block and DEFINITELY on the second floor!More
