    Comfortable break away

    Great for a short break, although the outdoor balcony was in serious need of cleaning and cob web removal. The hammock was very mouldy but was lovely to sit in. Unfortunately our cottage was on the road side and the traffic was very noticeable. I was craving an escape from Sydney to hear the birds, but the traffic was overpowering them 😔 I think the cottages on the opposite side of the property overlooking the valley would be much nicer. I know it’s a case of ‘you get what you pay for’ and this cottage was less than many others you can choose from in the area, but I would have expected the cleaning to be more up to scratch. Interiors of the cottage was also very dated with big chunky furniture that doesn’t maximise the space well. I understand bring a small business though upgrades are expensive and this is purely my own personal experience. I’m sure there are many others who would enjoy the cottage styling and appreciate the surrounds as they are.

    Perhaps not

    Robotic checkin, not interested in providing information regarding suitable places to take our dog walking. Nothing available onsite. Breakfast was delicious and well cooked. Housekeeping exemplary. Picnic hamper (platter as we stayed in) was hideously overpriced for $90. Much better value available in Maleny. Couldn’t walk anywhere from balmoral ridge, it’s on a main road and about 15 minutes drive from Maleny. Felt like we were imposing on them because we took our dog. Advertised as pet friendly, and I contacted them prior to ensure that they were aware. Although the accommodation was clean and as advertised, I wouldn’t stay again because we felt unwelcome.

    Nice place to stay. Great service.

    Nice place to stay in a bush setting with scrub turkeys feeding outside our cabin. Great views from deck. Service was great with a nice breakfast. The only negative is the close road noise from heavy vehicle traffic at night and early morning.
