This fantastic little motel is located at the entrance of Maleny (coming from Landsborough). The rooms have been recently refurbished with updated bathroom, floor covering and beds. Our room had a queen and king size single - feedback was very good. Whilst it was Easter the cost for the room was on par with this part of the Coast for...

I must say the view was lovely. Paid $310.00 for two nights stay - Friday and Saturday. We had a queen bed and single bed in the room. Unfortunately a few weeks later, WITHOUT any prior notification we were charged an additional $25.00 because we had used the single bed on our second nights stay. (This was even after we...

Managers were both lovely, very friendly & willing to assist with luggage etc. My partner and I stayed in a wheelchair accessible room but found the set up a little difficult for him; slope downhill then sharp turn to arrive directly at a small ramp into the room with no space to get a run up. If he had of...

Nice clean place , friendly staff and beautiful view. They only downfall is that it is on the highway and you get traffic noise, but with the doors closed it is acceptable. Just outside of Melany some resturants close by if needed.

It is inspiring to experience a couple who have such a positive attitude and a " nothing is too much trouble" outlook.Australia needs more hosts like this in hospitality. Bed was super comfortable. Great value with a superb outlook. Lovely to have the Terrace Restaurant next door and the cute gardens cafe just down the road for a wholesome breakfast....

I would warn people to get a written quote or request an email/text confirming the price as when we arrived to check in the price was $40 more than quoted when we booked. In our case the customer were most certainly not right as they refused to acknowledge that they would have given the lower price. We had no real...

We were delightfully surprised. The tariff is very reasonable so we weren't expecting stunning views, modern bathroom and very comfy beds. The manager was very friendly and helpful with local knowledge. Definitely putting this on the 'visit again' list and happy to tell friends about.

We stayed here the night before a friend's wedding at Maleny Manor, which is conveniently just across the road. This place is clean, has charm and offers an amazing view. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and a very cheap breakfast for $3 is available. You also have a fridge, TV and iron in every room. Go for the spa...

Stayed overnight this month with a family of four. The rooms are small but clean and adequate for a short stay. The owners were delightfully friendly, and on this basis alone would recommend this motel to travellers requiring short term accommodation within the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. This is a basic motel with good amenities, which is great for a night...

“I think all the rooms back onto a busy road so bring ear plugs if traffic noise affects you.”
  • The view from the room is lovely. Sadly the road is a little too close.
