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.

Lovely rainforest surrounds with creek and variety of wild life. Quaint room spacious and well appointed. Breakfast items in fridge. Home provided eggs and pizzas ( one included free ) Host friendly and provided plenty of information regarding our stay. No TV but WiFi very good and fast, to our surprise. As evenings dark, if need to access TV on own device, was not a problem. Large bed,comfortable, but quite high from the ground. No real trouble for us, but could be more difficult for those with mobility problems. Lighting was bright in some areas of the room, but dimmer in other parts. No light behind main door, which as steps down caused a touch of careful walking in the dark to reach main light in centre of room. Off the main road for 6 kms with the last two unsealed, but not too rough - but will get car dirty ! Overall, enjoyed our stay.

Cairns, Australia11 contributions1 helpful vote
We are Cairns locals and needed to get away for a couple of days and unwind. As Cedar Park Rainforest Resort was only an 1.5 hour at most drive away from our home, we decided to go here and it didn't disappoint. Peter, the owner and manager, was fantastic with communication from the time of booking. Any inquiries I had were answered promptly. Check in was so easy and we felt at home from the start. Our room was amazing, and spotless. There is no TV which was another factor in choosing to stay here, who needs TV when you want to relax and unwind :). The free breakfast provided was more than ample, and the free pizza we ate that night for dinner was so yummy. There is a beautiful deck overlooking the forest and gardens, where you can eat your meals that you provide ( or after sampling the free pizza, buy some more :) ), or just sit and listen to the sounds of the creek and birds over a glass of wine. There are board games to play with the family, which we loved. A ping pong table which provided much needed family time and laughs. We spent alot of time walking the gardens, the creeks and the orchard, where you may see wallabies, curlews and beautiful birds. Our daughter is a teen and defiantly wasnt bored, there is fast internet so she could check in with her friends on face book, but most of her time was spent with us exploring and loving nature. Also, Peter has his children there on site from time to time and they are the most polite children, our daughter spent alot of time with his 10 year old daughter who was alot of fun to hang out with. The kids are keen to say hi and have a chat, but if you want alone time they are happy to go off do their own thing and leave you be. I could go on and on on just how glorious this resort it, we loved it so much we are planning on making it a 3 monthly event to stay there for a weekend, its very very affordable. Cheaper than a "fancy" hotel and far more relaxing than anyway we have stayed before. Many many thanks Peter and kids for making our stay so awesome, will see you again soon :)

My partner and I wanted a remote getaway somewhere quiet to recharge and relax. I am so glad we picked Cedar Park. About a ten minute drive from Kuranda it is tucked away but easy to find. The grounds are phenomenal with the beautiful rainforest and the creek with plenty of places to wander or sit and enjoy. The room and communal areas were so unique and beautiful I just wandered around looking at all the decorative features and art for hours. Everything you could think of and more is in your room including a kitchenette with everything you need to cook meals. The complementary breakfast supplies really made the trip feel luxurious and special. The hosts were friendly and made sure we were comfortable and felt at home. We came home feeling refreshed and recharged. I could not recommend this place enough.

The rooms were very clean and well presented.... even has a nespresso coffee machine!!!! Well laid out and the hammock on the back patio was awesome. Take care driving in as its a single dirt road, well maintained though. Home made pizzas were delicious, fridge was well stocked. If your looking for a weekend away without the kids this is the place.

Everything was perfect. The fridge was well stocked with everything you need, the location was tucked away but close enough to Kuranda shops, the room was very comfortable and well decorated, bed and shower were both great. Will definitely be looking to come back sometime!

We really enjoyed our time at Cedar Park. The room was comfortable and had a well-appointed kitchen area. Their frozen homemade meals were delicious, and many were allergy friendly. The fresh fruit, eggs, and yogurt made a great breakfast on the patio.

My partner and i stayed for 2 nights in Dec. Was not informed of gravel speed humps that scraped the bottom of my car. Not suitable for low profile cars. No one was on sute when arrived, and cant find no one during the day when needed help. Air con keeps tripping out because of overload. Had to keep finding someone to reset the air con. Not alot of privacy at the back of your room. Will not be going back there

Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay because of the road and the service. We are a low-key place and with only five suites do not have someone there all the time. I manage the hotel but have to go out shopping and shuttle children while my wife works another job caring for elderly. There is a doorbell on the bar so that you can get help if we are there and my mobile number is written on it so you can call or text me if you needed to. The air conditioning system is new and quite good although it does have trouble when it people put it into the wrong setting. I am sorry about that. As for the speed humps, that is my fault as I just laid down fresh gravel on the whole driveway and levelled it out myself as best I could as a hotelier. I have trimmed them down a bit now but as heavy rains do come our way we need to have humps to direct the water off the driveway or it will be ruined and even worse to drive on. I made them a little too tall and they have been shortened. And the driveway is greatly improved now with the new gravel on it. We have a small team managing this hotel and we do our best. We cannot be standing by all the time and as hard as we try some things do go wrong. People shouldn't expect that we are a five star hotel, as we are a family operation. We do aim to give the best service we can and have worked hard to make Cedar Park what it is. I think it's easy to complain about some of the small things but you need to look at the whole picture which is that it's a pretty nice place to stay and people in general seem happy with it.

We just spent 3 days R&R here, only 50km from home, but what a find. The cabins are amazing, with everything you could wish for for a self catering holiday. Rates include a well stocked fridge! The grounds are typical bushland, with a running creek (complete with bath spa) resident wild animals and chooks. Friendly hospitality at it's best and free range of the gorgeous facilities. Lovely bathroom with constant hot water and the comfiest bed ever.The photos on here speak for themselves...Just as presented. Thankyou, we will be back.

Exactly as shown on the webpage. A great selection for your "all day breakfast" Our room was very comfortable, a home from home. You can do just what you want, visit Kuranda or The Atherton Tablelands or as we did, nothing, just relaxed. Peter and Jane so welcoming, nothing too much trouble. Would recommend the Resort to anyone. Don't be put off by a short stretch of gravel road, well graded and manageable to any car.

Wonderful and friendly hosts that are happy to let you explore their land. Abundance of fruit trees and more than generous food provided. We booked last minute and the hosts were more than happy to accommodate. We even brought our own dinner for our last minute one night stay and it wasn't needed at all. Highly recommend.
