“clean & comfy”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding at Maleny Manor.
Rooms were clean with quality fittings ( a makeover).
Spa bath in bedroom - not enough hot water both times we tried it.
I hate Nescafe packet coffee (sawdust) - an upgrade to a better quality would be appreciated.
Rooms were quiet despite being on a main drag,view was stunning.
Value for money - ???I know motels are expensive, but I think prices could be lower.
Staff friendly and helpful.
No need for breakfast at this motel, nor dinner - excellent restaurants abound a few steps away.

We stayed here as we had a wedding to attend nearby and found it to be cosy. Plenty of blankets supplied which came in handy with the cool weather. We had assumed we were getting a deluxe suite for the price we paid, comparing with the prices listed on their website but that's our own fault for not checking that was indeed what we were paying for. Overall a cute place to stay with an awesome view to wake up to.

Stayed here while we were attending a weddiong at the nearby Maleny Manor.

Fair price and great little location - with a small handful of excellent restaurents within a couple of hundred yards, as well as a pleasant walk to Mary Cairncross Park.

The room itself was a bit kitsch with the spa bath by the bed and the open brickwork but the bed was wonderfully comfortable, the heater was brilliant (it was winter!) and there was a nice big tv to lay in bed and watch the news in the morning. Beautiful views from every room I would think (certainly from ours).

Cosy little motel with an absolutely fantastic view! Good price and very nice owner. The restaurant just across (Terrace) was outstanding!!
Nb! If rainy and foggy the view is less visable.

This is a great place to stay to explore the Blackall Ranges in the Hinterlands near Brisbane. The rooms are not luxurious, although some do have spas, but the beds are comfortable, the veiws spectacular, and Blanche, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. You're within an hour of Noosa and the Sunshine Coast, the Glass House Mountains, Australia Zoo, Mary Cairncross Park, Maleny (a great little village with all the amenities), Montville, Kondalilla Falls (wonderful hike and scenery), and next door to the Terrace, an award-winning restaurant . This looks like a typical "motel" when you drive in, but it's great value for the cost, very clean and comfortable.
