We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Cape Trib and Daintree. It looks like the hotel are renovating some of the rooms and we opted for one of the studios that was on offer. It was super cheap but the kitchen fittings were quite tired and it wasn't the cleanest it could have been around the kitchen area but the rest of the room was fine.
Unless you are on a tight budget, spend a few more dollars on the nicer rooms. As only a couple of rooms weren't renovated when we were there the older rooms might not be available for long.
We booked a couple of activities at reception and they gave us a discount over and above any offer we could find. Possum, who does the night time wildlife walk at Crocolylus down the road. may or may not be the best at his job in the area but it is probably worth $30 or so just to watch him for a few hours! If you the walk take a raincoat as it is called rainforest for a reason.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Daintree Rainforest Retreat is a small family owned motel. It sits nestled in the forest surrounded by towering trees and lush gardens. While we do not have a restaurant we do offer a covered BBQ area with its own sitting area and a fully equipped and comfortable communal kitchen together with 2 further sitting/dining areas. The Cow Bay Hotel is a 2 minute walk and while it is very close, it can be neither seen nor heard from the motel. Our rooms are cooled by ceiling fans and guests can further escape the tropical heat with a dip in our palm fringed swimming pool. We look forward to seeing you. ... more less
