“My boyfriend proposed on our first night at Cedar Creek and our parents called the staff the next morning for a favour. We were upgraded from the lodges to their creek cabin - their best available - Mum hadn't even asked her favour yet! She had them place champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries in the room so they were there when we arrived. Every time the staff saw us they asked how we were and used our first names. Could not fault the service or accommodation at all - it was brilliant, we will definitely be going again.” – April, 2011

“I recently had the opportunity to enjoy this fabulous resort on Mt Tamborine. Going away with your kids and their friends can be quite a challenge but this is family heaven. The activities, especially the ropes course, rock hopping, and thunderegg mining are just great and kept everyone active all day. We stayed in one of the creek lodges and found them again ideal for the family. Located right on the creek with wood fire, spa bath, and very comfortable beds. There is a kitchen with everything you need - although we ate mainly at the restaurant as the prices were very reasonable and the quality of food excellent. Our kids and their friends are already asking when they can go back although they are thinking golf camping - they might but you will trouble getting the parents out of the lodges.” – April, 2011

“We stayed in Frog Lodges for the weekend. Since we last visited a total renovation has taken place. This is now certainly 4/5 star. The dining room and new bar compliment the high quality food and service. A friend who requires a gluten free diet was most impressed by the wide menu selection. For lunch we dined outside on the terrace and enjoyed their wood fired pizzas. We found everything available for a good holiday, an adventure park, tennis, swimming pool, fossicking and horse riding to name some activities. A thoroughly enjoyable weekend with pleasant and helpful staff we will be back.” November, 2010

“My two girls (7 & 4) and I met up a friend and her children, in the last week of school holidays. We were coming off the back of a great experience on an island holiday and time with family. When we arrived it was raining and set-in. There were many plans and our hopes of making it work let alone comfortable, were not high. At every turn we had such fun. Horse riding, the adventure park, hanging out in the cabin, the creek - the weather made no difference...The cabins are simple, but well-appointed and surprising roomy. The 'start your fire' service was very handy - stacks of great timber available. The restaurant was great also - kids loved it.” – November, 2010

“My wife and I stayed here and had a great time. We stayed in a luxury spa room on the hill for 2 nights over a weekend - good price and it included a buffet breakfast which was really good. We did the ropes course and played laser skirmish, both were excellent. The first night we went up to Clancy’s Irish Pub for dinner which was lovely and the second night we stayed in house and dined at the new restaurant at cedar creek. The food was good, the service was good and the after dinner schnapps from the local distillery was just the right way to end a good night. We hope to make it up there again soon, it was just the perfect weekend away - just what my wife and I needed.” – October, 2010
