We came across the Malanda Lodge by accident and what a pleasant surprise it turned out to be. Now we always stay there when we visit the Atherton Tableland. Set in spacious gardens it is quiet, peaceful, well appointed and has a great restaurant. We even managed to glimpse the resident platypus in the pond at the bottom of the...

I have stayed at the Malanda Lodge Motel several times. It hasn't changed. The best things about the motel are its lovely landscaped gardens and lush lawn and its proximity to town via a long stroll or a short drive. The worst things are the shabby bathrooms and the lack of soundproofing. The bathrooms haven't been updated for years, except...

The worst & rudest service I've ever encountered. Don't run a business such as a motel if you can't be polite & hospitable. We had a beautiful meal in restaurant with a group who had not seen each other in quite a while (great company) & had the manager stand over us & demanded we leave by 9:30pm. Comments made...
