Ferntree Rainforest Lodge

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lovely staff, lovely location that's well and truly in the rainforest like the whole of Cape Tribulation. The room (stand-alone cabin) was very "tired" looking with a noisy fan/air-condition, no net/screen for the insects, no TV and no phone signal (leaving us very little to do on such a rainy week). Overall, I still think it was OK value for money for such a lovely location that it is, but don't expect a luxurious stay.

The rooms at Ferntree are little cabins. if you open all the windows, it's like sleeping outdoors! We were there in early September, so not too hot yet. Ceiling fan; no AC. Staff was very friendly and helpful, making arrangements for us for various activities. The associated restaurant is wonderful at night, all lit up with tiki lights. Continental breakfast was very good. Absolutely loved the place!

Staff was friendly and very helpful. The cabins are comfortable and the grounds are gorgeous. We saw more wildlife around the hotel for free than we saw on a night walk in the forest with a guide. Highly recommend Ferntree!

The hotel really has a cozy feeling and the customer service was amazing. We had taken a day reef snorkeling trip and they allowed us a very late checkout (2p), so that we could shower after the trip was over. For the price we paid, the facilities were great.
