I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room. Nice little place to sit on the veranda. All the usual tea, coffee, milk etc. Good value and you are able to stay for one night. I would recommend it and would stay again.

Stayed here Saturday 21st May I would have to say it's the worse place that we have ever stayed. Requested a first floor room in booking but got a ground floor room due to the fact they didn't read my booking properly. On arrival in our room we got a disgusting smell of damp and room was very cold looking... More

Hubby and I found the motel very handy as it was in walking distance to the wedding venue. It was very clean and comfortable and we were very happy with our choice of a lower level unit. We had access to a lovely area outside which gave us fantastic views. We booked an over night stay on a long weekend... More

We stayed for night after escaping for a girls trip to mount Tamborine for the day. The view and surrounds were beautiful. It is literally next door to the St. Bernard which overlooks the beautiful gorge. Beds were okay, it's a older style room and bathroom but just for the night it suited perfectly. Staff were friendly. If you're looking... More

Last minute booking as a hotel we had booked at turned out to be someone's home! The lovely lady at Mt Tamborine booked us in to a wonderful room and it was hard to leave the next morning! Highly recommend it - so close to everything though you feel miles away.

Driving in I thought "what on earth have I done?" I booked online and wasn't prepared for the tumbledown, ramshackle look of the place. I quickly learnt, Appearances can be deceiving.
