Went here to have some beers with my husband. Interior looks nice service is good. You can choose out of a lot tap beers and some stubbies. I had no food here but you can order pizzas which are prepared in a wood fired oven.

This rainforest retreat was alive and thriving in 2010/2011. But what happened to it? It is now completely abandoned, the letter box is overflowing with two years worth of mail and the pool is a breeding zone for mosquitos. It's such a shame as this place was one of the most beautiful B&B's and Ivan and Lorena were lovely!

My husband myself and 12 year old son and my mother and father in law stayed there last year it's idyllic. Ivan is a wonderful host nothing was too much trouble.it wasn't too far away from anywhere but made you feel you were in your own little paradise. I would highly recommend for anyone of any age to go there...

Ivan and Lorena have a beautiful B&B in the rainforest right next to a mountain stream. It's quiet and secluded (except for exotic wild bird calls), and the rooms are comfortable and well designed. The breakfast is exceptional, the best we had in Australia. They are also helpful with excursion arrangements, and in the evening there is a lovely salt...

My parents in law stay at the B&B for a couple of days in April 2010. They have very poor english but that wasn't a problem thanks to Ivan and Lorina's kindness. They took really care of them, making sure that they were enjoying their stay and sending us emails almost everyday to keep us up-to-date. My parents in law...

This is simply the best B&B! Fabulous location, the best breakfasts, hot tub & pool, what more could you ask for? It is a perfect place to stay - I cannot recommend Cairns Reef 'n Rainforest highly enough. Ivan goes out of his way to ensure that your stay is the best - his advice on trips is second to...

We loved it here.

No need went unmet. Ivan and Lorina, along with their 2 delightful children,...

From the moment I arrived I was looked after. Ivan and Lorna arranged a hired car for me, arranged collection from the airport, it was all done. When I arrived at the B&B I was amazed, not another house or building to be seen just lovely trees, birds and a beautiiful room! However to get in to town was easy,...

I was looking for something close enough to the CBD of Cairns but far enough away to relax after a days work. This place was just great. A perfect retreat into another little world amongst the rainforest. The room was very clean and the breakfast was great. The owners warm and accomodating. Highly recomend, I would stay again.

My wife and vacationed throughout Queensland in June 2010. By the time we left we had stayed in just about every type of accommodation available in Queensland from B&B to Island Resort, backpacker hotel/motels, hostels and luxury US style hotels.
