10/10 Exceptional

The Lodge exceeded our expectation. The individual lodges were very well appointed and tucked away in the forest. When we arrived the staff were very helpful, as they were throughout our four day stay. The meals were varied and imaginative ... well done chef! Diwan is centrally located in the Daintree so the Lodge is a good spot from which to explore. We loved it.

We loved the Daintree Wilderness Lodge's location and charm. Each cabin is surrounded by beautiful fan palms making you feel encapsulated by rainforest. Highly recommend for a true Daintrew experience!

Very much in the ‘Daintree feeling’ and close to nature. Very basic accommodation which is not a problem at all, just not for the price paid.

We will be back
We really enjoyed our stay at the Wilderness Lodge. We really felt a part of the Daintree by staying in our little cabin amongsth the rainforest and being able to watch the cassowaries walk past our door was very special. We will be back.

6/10 Good

The location surrounded by rainforest is excellent with lots of birds around. Staff were pleasant. I stayed here years ago when it had been recently built and it was gorgeous. However it's a bit run down now. The airconditioner was on a 2 hour time limit but there was no point even turning it on as it barely worked and the little bit of air coming out was warm. We tried to open some windows instead and a couple nearly fell out of their frames so we couldn't open and close regularly. The room was so hot (even overnight when ambient temperature cooled down a bit and even with the fan going all night on the highest (noisy) speed) that it was really uncomfortable. Also the advertised free WiFi was not available. We were told this was because "the phone lines are down" but we asked other businesses in the area and they said that wasn't the case. We asked for help with the aircon on the first night but the staff member on duty didn't know how to use it. We also mentioned these problems to the manager when we were leaving and she said she thought the windows had been fixed and didn't seem to understand the problem with the airconditioning. It was still a nice place to stay but does need some maintenance.
