A Tropical Escape B&B
Ranked #8 of 11 Mission Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 October 2009

Thoroughly enjoyed our night at A Tropical Escape. All you could wish for in a very warm and homely environment. Felt like we were visiting with long time friends rather than the owners of the B and B. Would highly recommend a stay with Noel and Dot if you are in the area. Plenty of things to do or you can laze around and do nothing - your choice.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had the most lovely, peaceful sleeps in our month long trip through Australia. Noel was great and picked us up and drove up to the bus station, and also drove us to dinner in town. He even let us borrow his laptop so that we could email our friends and family. It is only a short walk to the beach which, when we were there, was totally deserted. It was like our own island paradise. There was always lots of food for breakfast. We really enjoyed it and will come back if we are in Mission Beach again.

Noel & Dot made us very welcome from arrival to leaving with their friendly conversation and their generous hospitality. We were able to make ourselves feel very comfortable with unlimited use of the beautiful facilities.
The house is purpose-built as a B&B; very comfortable with quality furnishings, beds, linen and very roomy. Beaches and restaurants are located in reasonable proximity.
The place is well-suited to those who prefer a quiet, restful location whilst touring or for a few days stopover.

Congratulations & thank you to the hosts, Dot & Noel for the outstanding superb accommodation & hospitality that they offer. Excellent location, short walk to the beach, stroll to nearby restaurants, spacious room, privacy plus. Beautiful, peaceful & relaxing surrounding environment. Carparking facility offered was an unexpected added bonus during our nearby island holiday. Great value $$$. Highly recommend. Definitely stay longer next time.

Tropical Escape lives up to its name, it truly is the perfect place to escape in a beautiful tropical paradise. We have stayed at Tropical Escape Bed & Breakfast in Mission Beach a number of times and hopefully will make it back for another stay very soon. The rooms are spacious bright and clean and most important the beds are really comfortable. The quiet area, tropical gardens and the very friendly property hosts Dot & Noel make you feel instantly relaxed and in holiday mode. The property is not right on the beach but don’t be concerned as the beach is a really pleasant stroll along a pathway through tropical rainforest. We recommend this walk every day after one of Dot’s really delicious breakfasts.

We have stayed at Tropical Escape Mission Beach a few times since February 2005 (we were last there in December 2008) and can say in all honesty that we actually go out of our way to spend a night or two with the best hosts in the B&B business that we have met so far. We knew Dot & Noel were special people the first time we stayed there as they were most helpful and quite knowledgeable about where to go and what to do to get the best out of the time that we spent in the Mission Beach area.

We have stayed in all the rooms at least once and they are all great. I work in the accommodation industry and will say that the standard of the rooms is far better than quite a lot of the hotels I have either worked in or stayed in over the years.

And the best part of the stay (apart from the great chats with the hosts) is the wonderful breakfast - Dot prepares the best bacon and eggs, not to mention the "Tropical" fruit salad (sorry Mum, but dots eggs are to die for).

If you're going to be in the Mission Beach area, stay with Dot and Noel!!!!!

I really enjoyed staying there. The room was fantastic and clean. The owners were very friendly and hospitable. I was alone so they took me to the market and showed around by car. I didn't get bord thanks to their help. The breakfast was great !! I saw a bird called cassowary in the yard. I will go there again definitely.
