With thanks! record occupancy, interesting times.

Dear Hamish and Isabella,

We stayed in many motels and units on our trip and your lodge stands out as the most memorable and enjoyable. This is made up of several points, the first being the location which we selected to avoid the very busy and crowded Cooktown due to the Cook celebrations. Then the drive-in off the bitumen which was interesting and gave a sense of isolation and peace. The number 10 hut was spacious, clean, and allowed us to relax immediately after a long drive. This plus the flowering trees and shrubs and constant birdsong added to the enjoyment We also enjoyed your breakfast which set us up for a busy day in Cooktown. We also utilised your bbq that evening to cook our dinner and enjoy a wine in the dining room. The convenience of the Lions Den hotel was excellent for dinner on two nights and added to the enjoyment.


Overall a very pleasant stay with you and we will definitely recommend your Mungumby Lodge to friends and relatives.


Best regards
Dean and Christine Prangley.
