I really wanted to love this place but hate to say I won't be going back and would not recommend it to others. The cabins are very basic and in need of some serious renovating. I did not like having the bar Fridge (and a very small one at that) in the bathroom under the sink and in the same...

Thanks for taking the time to post a review, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I must say that I was impressed that you did the Mount Sorrow Trek as it certainly isn't for the faint hearted. Next time you are up this way you might enjoy the walk to Alexander Falls. Safe travels wherever the wind takes...

I had dreamed of sleeping in the middle of the rainforest, so when I came across this accommodation, it seemed fantastic. The arrival was a tad bumpy as the road is unsealed, it's not too long, but long enough to damage a hire car, so take it slow. The welcome was warm, and our key was handed over in a...

We stopped off for lunch last Sunday and had a fantastic feed; generous portions, wonderful, attentive, and genuine service and beautiful food. everything we had was perfect - Chicken Laska soup, hot cob, prawn curry and an enormous strawberry ice cream within a chocolate leaf, dressed with fresh strawberries. Plus, a very reasonable bill! We're coming back! Thanks :)

We stayed only for 1 night at the tail end of a week in North Queensland. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Arrival was very friendly. Room was good for purpose. Kids loved swimming in the creek. Dinner was a treat with unexpected good food and service. Add a bit of bacon and eggs for breakfast and 5 stars all the way!...

Went to the lodge for a mate's wedding, what a perfect location! The facilities are spot on, just what you'd want staying in the rainforest and there are beautiful walks through the bush. Vicki & Al are awesome hosts as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Step back in time and experience the magic of the 'Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree'. Only two hours North of Cairns and just over an hour from Port Douglas, this is the only place in the world where two world heritage listed National Parks meet. This section of the Daintree rainforest, is where the world's most ancient rainforest, meets the reef. The beautiful pristine white sandy beaches are only minutes away. Heritage Lodge & Spa is a 3 1/2 star small unique Lodge featuring 20 Rainforest cabins set within the quite serenity of the Daintree Rainforest, and are perfect for Cassowary, butterfly, bird watching or musky rat kangaroo spotting. Sit back, relax on your own private balcony to enjoy nature at its best. Each Cabin has high ceilings which are designed to maximise your rainforest experience whilst enjoying home comforts. Our Restaurant "On the Turps" will tantalise your tastebuds using quality local produce, overlooking the beautiful Cooper Creek and the lodge swimming pool amongst the tropical gardens and rainforest surroundings. Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily. The crystal Clear waters of Cooper Creek is untouched winding through the Lodge en-route from the mountains to the sea, offering safe swimming all year round. Experience the Daintree Rainforest at night, allow our experienced guide to take you through the property spotting the nocturnal flora and fauna with only a torch. Bookings can be made on arrival. As soon as you step foot into the lodge you are made to feel at home by our staff who are able to assist you to maximise your time in this magnificent destination. Or simply, relax and enjoy a massage in our day spa, whilst listening to the sounds of the rainforest. The Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree, offers personalised service in a magical and rejuvenating environment. Staying at the Lodge is more then just a holiday, it is an experience! ... more   less
