Five stars all the way. Mark & Joanne are very welcoming & the pavilion was clean, well appointed, private & personalised for our stay. The gourmet breakfast & bbq hampers were abundantly stocked with a beautiful variety of foods. Oh those fresh warm crossionts delivered in the morning were just amazing. This place is the perfect spot for any couple wanting a romantic breakaway, we will definitely be returning..

What a stunning location and beautiful accommodation in surrounds that can only be described as the perfect place to escape reality. From the complimentary port, breakfast croissants, bacon, eggs and fresh fruit, to the spa in the lounge overlooking the rainforest our night away was pure bliss. We can't wait to return to our heavenly hammock on the verandah, Narrows Escape will definitely see us return.

What a fantastic location and an incredible property. This place had everything you could want for a romantic getaway including the rain forest and the burbling creek outside our window. We loved the hot croissants delivered each morning and the chocolates on our bed. The cheese platter was also delicious. We would highly recommend staying here.

One of the nicest placest we have ever encountered. Beautiful and peaceful, lovely surroundings and wonderful accomadating staff. The bird life is amazing too, my husband ;the avid birdwatcher, noted dozens of species. We'll be back!

The peaceful surroundings and beautiful bird life just make you relax. The service was fantastic and in no way intrusive so our privacy was was assured. We will definitely be using this as an escape from our working life again.

A wonderful place to get off the 'grid', but with all the conveniences of home should you wish them. So peaceful and relaxing and the service exceptional! We would highly recommend staying here and we will be back again!

We have traveled a lot, and this place rates high on the list of best ever experiences. Not because it is 5-star fancy, but because it is beautiful in a soulful way. The privacy, the location, the flora and fauna, the personal touches, and the cabin layout are all gifts to those travelers that stay with them. Oh, but just in case I didn't mention it to the owners - the fridge in Cabin 6 made a little funny noise and should be checked. Otherwise, perfection!

I hadn't heard of Montville in Queensland before I headed to Australia recently but it is picturesque and the people very friendly. Only 3kms from the town is the beautiful resort of Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat which is down a steep hill towards a reservoir. It is probably one of the most beautiful resorts my wife and I have stayed in. There are 6 log cabins which give you plenty of privacy but are supplied with all the mod cons. No small touch is left undone and one of the nicest touches was the fact that the resort owners leave a bag on a hook each morning around 8am with a fresh batch of croissants. If you decide to go to Queensland and particularly the area around Brisbane I'd insist you head to the "Hinterland" area and see Montville. And if you're in the area I would strongly recommend staying at the Narrows Escape (if you're a couple) because it is well worth the stay.

Just returned from a fantastic weekend stay at the Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat. From the moment you arrive nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, and you are made to feel very welcome. The quality of the accommodation, the amazing setting create a very relaxed atmosphere for you enjoy your stay. This is the ideal place to enjoy that special weekend you have been promising for yourselves, you won't be disappointed...!

During our Australia east coast trip this year from Cairns to Brisbane this location was the most outstanding one. Equipment, decoration, welcome fruit basket and cheese plate, fresh flowers .... The attention to detail was everywhere! Thanks a lot!
