Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed I night in a double ensuite room. The room is very compact but has the essentials - comfortable double bed, extra pillows, good shower, small fridge. A covered verandah includes lounge chairs and a dining table and chairs. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Dinner was available - a set meal at 6.30 pm in a common outdoor dining area that facilitated mingling with other guests. We were fortunate to be there for lamb shank night - it was delicious. We used the outdoor dining area to prepare our own breakfast and lunch. It’s a lovely spot for a short stay.

Thank you for your review Lindsay. We're currently refurbishing the accommodation to make it even comfier :-). The lamb shanks are still a hit with guests and probably the favourite. We hope to welcome you back one day.

Myself and my girlfriend travelled here whilst heading up to the tip. We loved it so much we made a point of driving back on the way down south.

We stayed 5 nights in total and absolutely loved our time here, beautiful environment and fantastic value. I don’t think Jane, Luke, Stu or Lynn could have done anything more to make us feel more welcome during our stay, absolutely wonderful group of people.

We were due to arrive past midnight upon check-in and therefore made arrangements so we could access our room without disturbing anyone. So, when we finally arrived we were really surprised to see Luke greet us when it was so incredibly late at night.

The property is situated about a 10 minute drive outside Lockhart, and only about a 30-45 minute drive to Chilli Beach/Portland Roads, making it an ideal base for exploring local sites.

There are some lovely walks nearby, one which is situated at the back of the property. There’s stunning wildlife in the local area, and you really don’t need to venture far, there is a variety of different species right outside your room door. On the accommodation side, rooms are modern and most importantly very clean.

Lynn’s cooking was fantastic, my girlfriend who is vegetarian said it was the best food she ate all trip. However, if you prefer to cook your own food, there is a great communal kitchen available to all guests.

We spent just over two weeks on the cape, the Greenhoose was our favourite place to stay and we really look forward to visiting again one day!

Cape York, West Coast resident and repeat Greenhoose guest. Staff are always welcoming, accommodating and beautifully friendly. With the vast history of Lockhart River, Kutini-Payamu (Iron Range) National Park, Chilli Beach and Portland Roads, this area invites slow exploration and the Greenhoose is a clean and comfortable facility to base yourself. After a day full of adventure, Greenhoose is a relaxed oasis - A/c, shower, then chat and have a drink with other guests on the lawns or around the open fire.

After camping for a few nights in the Iron Range, visiting the Greenhoose was a highly refreshing experience. The staff were more than happy to have a chin-wag and help us out. Whilst staying there we found lots of interesting wildlife, some which I'd never seen before. I recommend staying at least two nights at the Greenhoose as we only were around for one of the nights and felt we needed longer to appreciate the lovely place.

Stu and Lyn always make our stay memorable. Always ready for a chat. The care and attention to detail around The Greenhoose is a credit to all who work there. The gardens and accommodation since I was last there have been upgraded remarkably.
They are also very keen to learn all they can about the unique wildlife at their doorstep.
Looking forward to my next trip there to see how the campground has progressed.

This is a very remote location in Far North Queensland where a family has devoted their lives to offer an incredible conservational retreat. The rooms are what is know colloquially as ensuite donga’s. Very comfortable and staying very close to nature. Lovely home cooked dinner and basic breakfast but certainly a must do!!

One of the best places to stay but definitely the best place in the Iron Range area. The rooms are suitable, mostly fairly small, but a lovely covered balcony area outside each room with a table and chairs where you can sit to idle away the evenings.

Communal kitchen is fully equipped if you want to cater for yourself and a cafe is available some nights if that is your preference. A full cafe/restaurant is about to be constructed.

Owners and staff are all so friendly and you are made to feel most welcome.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our one-night stay at The Green Hoose. Our hosts were very accommodating and entertaining, also provided a delicious home-cooked meal. The room was comfortable and clean although a little on the small side. The verandah overlooking the rainforest was pure magic. The gardens were also lovely. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I had 2 nights at the Greenhoose and had a fantastic experience. All the staff were very helpful and gave great advise on places to visit in the Iron Range NP and Chilli Beach area. The room was very comfortable and the rainforest setting was beautiful. We had dinner at the food van Cafe which is open on Thursday nights visitors and locals. Food was great and the coffee excellent. We would certainly visit again and spend longer there.

Sophie and Mick the hosts were fantastic, up for a chat always to help you find out about all the places to expore and experience in this wilderness environment. Cabins were small but balconies where we spent most of the time with fellow guests were wide and inviting. The gardens and cabins were set amongst the rainforest allowing the wildlife to come to us. Cabins 3* Balconies 5* Siting and gardens 5*+ but the tipping point was the cafe with take away food at great prices for guests and locals. WQell done 5+.
