This is my second review for Crystal Creek, and I hate doing them: it's hard enough to book in as is. But honestly, this is probably the best accommodation in Australia.

This is an absolutely stunning location. You are surrounded in completely uninterrupted rainforest, natural creeks and wildlife. We spent 3 nights here for our honeymoon with the food packages.

We had a lovely babymoon(trip before the baby arrives) here in October 2015. Very relaxing location and our cottage was fabulously luxurious. We loved the infinity pool, and the open fire.

What a setting for such an unbelievable week spent at this great resort. Close enough to the Gold Coast or Byron Bay for a trip with world class features in your own private bungalow to enjoy the rainforest from your own private pool or outdoor...More
We stayed two nights in Satinash-Glass Terrace, secluded and luxurious. Magical views over the tree tops and up to the escarpment. Spent hours sitting on the deck just soaking it all in. King Bedroom was to die for....walls of glass put you at one with...More

I've heard that the plunge pool in Cedar lodge is always nice and hot, as it doesn't use solar heating. However, people seem to agree that the solar heated pools of the mountain-view lodges are pretty much useless in winter, ect, because they are freezing cold? For a guaranteed 'heated' pool, which lodge? Or is it better value just grabbing a cheaper lodge?

You are right that the Mountain View Lodge pools are solar heated and will not be warm enough in winter. They do have amazing views and big two person marble bath which also has great views. The pool at Cedar Lodge will be about 28 degrees (please note that it is not an outdoor Jacuzzi). The Glass Terraces are always very popular. We are fairly heavily booked so it will depend on what is available on the dates you would like to visit. \
Please do not hesitate to contact our reception if you have any queries.
