This lodge is fantastic. we absolutely loved the whole experience. The cabins are well spaced and because it is in the middle of the rainforest it is tranquil. We only stayed for 1 night, but wished we had a couple of more days there. The pool is pleasant, although a little too close to the "common room''. the fit out...

Absolutely beautiful location. Lovely infrastructures, reception, café and boardwalk. Colony of rare Spectacled Flying Foxes living on the grounds. Rooms, cleanliness-wise, could use some TLC. On the one hand, you are in the middle of the jungle - literally. On the other, cleanliness could also be improved. Common areas could use a touch up. Pool is amazing. If you are...

Just stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of queensland and we left very disappointed with the accomodation. The location of the accomodation is incredible with two very beautiful pools and a nice dining area. The accomodation itself though is awful. The cabin was dirty. Evident from all the dirt, dust and cobwebs in every corner of the room...

We have stayed in Cape Trib a few times over the years and worked there as well. Still a beautiful spot, but disappointed with the lack of visitors and the run down accommodation. The rooms need a facelift, but do love sleeping in the treehouse. Did have an issue with a fast spider though!

We've stayed here twice now, once in a villa and the other time in the family cabins. Such a beautiful setting amongst the rainforest. Two pools. We've dined for dinner and breakfast each time. Beautiful inside or outside dinning areas reservations are required at busy times. The dinner was sensational each time beautiful flavours. Breakfast is a selection of fruit,...

Our room was small and basic - however it was clean and comfortable. This suited us fine as we spend almost every waking minute exploring this beautiful part of the world. Breakfast was included and there was plenty of food. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Stayed for one night at Ferntree Rainforest Lodge with family of five in Garden Loft. Perfect location was in the center of Cape Trib within walking distance to town, Lodge is located in lush tropical setting, unfortunately the actual accommodation needs some updating to improve its tired look and feel. Had dinner in the Cassowary Cafe which was Good. Would...

Perfect location amidst the rainforest, couldn't be much better. The buildings are old, and really in need of refurbishing. Considering the location, the restaurant was of a relatively good standard. Breakfast simple but good. 5 for location, 3 for the rest, average 4....
