Our veranda room on the 2nd floor was a good size and had a secluded outdoor area with a microwave and a two person spa. Furnishings although a little dated, were comfortable, well maintained and fitted in with the ambience of the hotel. All members of staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. Pre- stay emails were answered promptly and requests granted. The restaurant has a lovely view of the foreshore, but is a bit pricey for what’s on offer, for both breakfast and dinner. There are many restaurants within easy walking distance though. For those interested, standard LCAH benefits were offered.
Thank you for staying with us adenoz, we are grateful to know you enjoyed your stay with us and we appreciate you offering us some constructive feedback to work from. Jean and our housekeeping team have been working very hard to provide clean and comfortable rooms and I know the team will be grateful to know your feedback. It sounds like your pre arrival emails were answered by either Cindy or Erin, we have been placing a lot of focus on our pre arrival experience and it is great to know you we were able to help with all your requests. We believe your holiday experience begins with the romance of of booking your holiday not just from when you arrive. Thank you again adenoz, we apprecite your loyality and it was great to have you stay with us
This hotel has a bit of a quirky side about it. Looks better than it actually is. We stayed in the One Bedroom Spa Apartment as it had cooking facilities which we wanted so as to be able to cook the occasional meal. The spa itself is located in the living/lounge area but beware that you have no privacy from the balconies of some rooms to the right that can look down into the spa. We stayed at this Hotel for 6 days which is serviced daily but during our time here, the tiled floors were never swept or cleaned. House slippers were supplied but if you don't use them, expect your feet to be black. Air conditioner in lounge was annoyingly noisy so it remained switched off with the one in the bedroom working continuously and quietly. The door to this room is a frosted glass door with the same side panel and looks more like a shopfront and is the only way of gaining a slight view when it's opened as the only window runs lengthways along the lounge/living area but only looks out to a 1 metre wide garden and a fixed louvre screen. Restaurant is in a magnificent location and has a great outlook. Food is very good although servings are small and for the prices they charge, a bit disappointing. All eateries in Palm Cove seem to charge more than other areas in the region. I did read another post on Trip Advisor on this Hotel which complained about the coffee. She is correct. It is very ordinary and bitter. Hopefully they address this soon.
Dear Alex T, Thank you for posting your review Alex T, it was great you were able to stay with us and experience a holiday in beautiful Palm Cove. I also wanted to let you know Jean and I have reviewed the standards for serving our apartments to ensure floors are swept and mopped everyday. We did not realise their was a privacy concern with this apartment so we will be purchase some interior blinds to help fix this for future guests. Thanks Alex T for giving us such great feedback, you have helped us make so great changes to many areas. We have also organised some coffee training with our coffee supplier Ransom Coffee.
There's always a sort of caution and nervousness when booking accommodations for a holiday. Wearing a virtual blindfold we commit our hard earned money and time based on photos taken from the best angles by professionals. We've all felt the anxiety of opening the hotel door for the first time and not truly knowing what to expect. Well this hotel was all my girlfriend and I expected and more. Simple luxury at its very best. We saved this stop on our 12 day Australian vacation for the glorious happy ending and it was a great decision. I recommend booking the Spa Varanda room If you can and are on a romantic holiday. Enjoy a relaxing nap at the pool, the many restaurants at your doorstep, the free bikes, and the breathtaking views of tropical paradise. Tips: You will be in the jungle, expect high humidity and a lot of curious bugs. Pack the bug repellent and your sense of adventure. Restaurants at the Cove close their kitchens by 9 PM make sure you're seated in one of the many fabulous eateries by then. Seriously, if you're used to late dinners make reservations and don't wing it or you'll be left with eating a healthy dinner of Doritos. Make sure to take one of the many tours available to the Great Barrier Reef (Quicksilver was our choice) don't pay the overly inflated price for a kayak tour, and make sure to abide by the warning signs on the beach. If you're expecting a party atmosphere, keep searching. But if you're looking for a relaxing romantic adventure and are open to the many things Palm Cove/Cairns has to offer then book a suite at the Reef House with confidence.
Dear 16rositas, Thank you for staying at the Reef House and for taking the time to write your review. We really appreciate your feedback and I am sure your recommendations will be able to assist future guests of the Reef House and visitors to Palm Cove. All the best with the rest of your holiday and thank you again for staying at the Reef House.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The restaurant served lovely food at a good price. The receptionist and staff were very helpful and friendly. A lovely quiet peaceful place to stay our only complaint was a hard bed. Overall this property was lovely and relaxing with the outdoor restaurant being superb.
Dear Lynette11, Thank you for staying with us and for your kind review, knowing you had a quiet and peaceful stay is great to read. If you would please let me know what room number you stayed in, I'll make arrangements for it to be replaced. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you again Lynette, it was nice to have you stay with us.
A lovely old homestead made into a comfortable and convenient hotel right on the waterfront. Clean and quiet rooms with great ammenities and two pools. Staff were on the ball and meals were great. Would recommend this hotel to families and couples alike
Hello BenM88 and thank you for your Trip Adviser review, We really appreciate your feedback and thank you for deciding to stay at The Reef House and Spa. Your recommendation for others to stay with us mean a lot and we thank you again for staying with us and for sharing your compliments.
Accommodation and location is very good. The attitude of the staff (apart from the welcome on the night of arrival and the painter working on the property) and communication was very poor throughout the premises. The included breakfast was definitely not 5 star (food availability, quality and coffee machines not being monitored and causing problems). A request was raised with the receptionist where we were advised the manager would be consulted and he would come back to us - this did not happen. We were disappointed no one saw fit to advise at booking or prior to arrival that the restaurant would be closed due to a wedding and we would have to eat poolside (very limited seating) if we required a meal, this was discovered by a note left on our bed on the day incredibly suggesting we should contribute to the happy day? We are however happy with the management response subsequent to our visit.
Dear kiwis4651, Thank you for staying with us, it is however disappointing to know you did not enjoy your stay. It was myself who responded to you directly and we are confident to be able to improve on the areas your have described very quickly. Thank you again kiwis4651,
My partner and I have stayed at The Reef House 5 times now, the atmosphere is really relaxing, the rooms are clean and bright, The staff are bubbly and helpful, Complimentary cocktail hour at 5pm is great for meeting other travellers, definitely coming back :)

The Reef House was great. My room was very good with a great balcony. You could see the coral sea through the trees)) The hotel gas 2 swimming pools and is well maintained and comfortable. I really enjoyed the restaurant. Dinner was excellent and breakfast was good! The deck has views across the road to the beach!! All of the staff were first class and very helpful.
