Spent a lovely 4 days here as part of a recent business trip, I was extremely surprised about the quality of the food which rivaled anything I get here in Brisbane which is an effort in itself considering this place is only some 30km from the tip of Queensland, the housekeeping done by local indigenous staff was on par with...

It may be a remote area, but the standard of accommodation , service, & ambiance was very welcome after a long hot drive with our group. Rooms are large & clean, with all the facilities needed - not "over the top". We were treated to an evening of traditional dance from a local troupe. The food was excellent.

My partner and I had an unscheduled stay at the Peninsula Lodge for 9 days thanks to an unfortunate break down during our trip to the Cape. The level of customer service displayed by the staff at the Lodge was brilliant. I had no phone reception or internet but the staff did everything they could to help me organise RACQ,...

I have just returned from an 11 day group tour to Cape York, and one of the places we stayed for 2 nights was Cape York Peninsular Lodge at Bamaga. Driving in to the town I am thinking this is not going to be very good, but what a pleasant surprise. The rooms are very large, and spotless, and come...

We have just returned from a three day stay at the Lodge. From the time we arrived at the Bamaga airport until the time we left we experienced some of the best service from the management/reception (outstanding), restaurant (friendly/attentive), drivers & cleaning staff. Well done Cape York Peninsula Lodge!

We had 3 nights at CYPL - excellent accommodation and a fantastic highlight was a 4 WD trip to the Tip of Australia with local guide, Gordon.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in May. The service was excellent; from the pick up at the airport, to the check in, to the restaurant, to assisting with organising tours.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the closest accommodation for the walk to the tip of Cape York. Rooms pleasant. The meals were superb - totally surprising for such an out of the way place. Staff were accommodating and offered suggestions for travel around the area.
