We are taking a mandarins road trip up to Cairns, and rather than stay in a typical Gold Coast 4-5 star beach hotel, we tried this inn. It was a great decision. This is indeed more of a B&B than a 5 star hotel (think Ten...

Thank you for deciding to take a detoir/detour. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to our beautiful mountain. All roads may lead to Rome as they say but some are far more enjoyable than others. We were very happy to be part of your journey. Your enjoyment is our reward.

I have read the majority of the reviews and my view differs slightly. But only slightly. The room we had was lovely, old style furniture so quite dark but a romantic four poster bed, comfy sofa, little kitchen and a beautiful big bathtub for two! There was a balcony with table and chair. The balcony in room 2 wasn't private...
