              A gem!”

              Because of road closures (due to flooding) we had to find an accommodation at the last minute. And we found a gem! The room and the bathroom were great, the garden was lovely. We didn't try the pool, kitchen or the guest lounge but Dawn and Blair, the owners of Licuala Lodge, thought of everything. The breakfast was awesome! Yummy. It's 5/5!

              Beautiful small lodge hotel”

              This is a very high quality colonial lodge type hotel, set in beautiful gardens, with what seemed like an excellent small pool (I didn't use) with geat common areas and an excellent breakfast.

              this place was just quality, everything about it was beautifully executed - design, build, the gardens. the owner said it won awards when newly built and i believe him but it was still immaculate. mission beach was too far to walk but a great place

              We arrived latye due to a long drive from Port Douglas. Mick greeted us both and showed us to our room, then gave us a guided tour of the services/ facilities on offer. We were tired form our trip and unfortunately didn't have time to fully appreciate the hotel.

              It was a lovely stay. The room is quaint and decorated superbly. We loved the gardens and the friendly, personal service. It was the right choice for 2 parents needing a break from our kids for the weekend. Would stay again.

              We couldn't have asked for anything better. The room was simply amazing, clean and welcoming. The kitchen was very furnished and we could cook on the BBQ too. Breakfast was stunning, complete and homemade. They provided us with travel advices. Having breakfast with cassowaries walking around is a once-in-life experience.

              Hi Lynette, thank you for your review. The B & B is indeed an older style - built as a traditional Queenslander Pole Home - so a bit quirky and different to the more modern hotels. The rooms are a good size for 2 people with either a Queen, 2 x Twin or a King bed, however as you booked it as a triple we had to add an extra bed - then it becomes a little snug. We usually direct people to our King Room which is more suitable for 3 persons. We are pleased you enjoyed your brief stay and hope the rest of your trip goes well. All the best, Dawn & Blair

              We were first timers staying at a B&B and weren't sure what to expect. After staying at licuala lodge we will be booking more B&Bs. We fell in love with the property and our room. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfy. We had our own private outdoor area which also came with a bbq. The garden and pool area are well kept and very pretty. The owners Dawn and Blair were so nice, they made sure we had a comfortable stay and gave us information on what to see and do. The breakfast was delicious and refreshing especially the tropical fruit. Dawn also makes an awesome coffee! We also got to see a Cassowary walking in the garden while having breakfast which was a bonus. If you are after some relaxing time away from the hustle and bustle then this is the place for you. I highly recommend staying here.
