The staff were absolutely lovely. The place could probably use a bit of TLC (smelt a tiny bit old) but other than that it was fantastic and would happily stay again.

A Cabin in the Bush

A great place to stay in the bush without the distractions of TV, just the sounds of the bush in the rain to relax with. The other great thing was that the dogs had somewhere we could share... the bush driveway. Just no off leash area on the property

Great accommodation in beautiful surroundings.

Pros: Beautiful eco accommodation. Wildlife. Close to where I needed to get to.
Location: Close to the Mount Cotton Training Centre! Close to main roads, but quiet.
This is a great location, peaceful bush surroundings, but not far from main arteries to Brisbane and Gold Coast. The owner, Sue is brilliant. Friendly and a great cook - we felt like we had known each other for years instead of just a few days. Surrounded by nature what more could you want.

Venue close to wedding

Pros: The outlook, views - natural bushland
Cons: One of the beds was a bit too firm for my liking.
Location: We spent our time at the Sirromet Winery at a wedding. The accommodation was in close proximity.
The only down side was the entrance to the property was quite hidden - difficult to find in the dark. Overall, the location was perfect, the rooms had every comfort, the staff were lovely and professional - it was a great place to stay.

Thanks so much Janet for providing such lovely and helpful feedback. We have our electrician and handyman on the job to move our large sign to our entry (instead of 50m before it) and to have it illuminated so easy for everyone to find us. Hopefully next time you come we will be 'up in lights'.
