After what could only be described as an absolutely painful stay at a so called resort in Kuranda, we passed through Yungaburra- and found this little Gem...
Initially stopping at the local Info center, we received some of the most friendly help from one of the loyal local's, who suggested this place- and even offered to find out if a room was available for us... That's awesome service.
The room was clean, nicely detailed, queen size bed, has split system a/c, flat screen tv and even free WiFi
Breakfast was served on the deck outside the room- service was top notch too.
If I had to fault the place at all, I guess it would be room size is a spot on the small side...
That said, for an overnighter and for the money- what more could you really want?
For a "motor inn" type of place - this is about as good as it gets...
Well run, Quiet, nice location and very satisfying- thumbs up
Was a damn sight cheaper than the rubbish tip where we stayed in Kuranda, and is ten fold the stay.
Though we only stayed one night, we would definitely go back...
