We booked for one night and loved it so much we ended up staying for 3. The hosts are lovely friendly people who are interesting to talk to but also respect your space. The rooms are extremely comfortable and very tastefully furnished. The views from all the rooms, as well as the lounge/breakfast area are truly amazing. Fantastically green and... More

Don’t know where to begin to express what a hidden gem The Spotted Chook is. I had booked in for 2 nights in The Loft for my partner’s birthday and straight off the bat, Jane & Leeroy were warm and welcoming hosts. Our room was spectacular... spacious and clean with an amazing view. My partner and I immensely enjoyed being... More

Thank you for this absolutely perfect review. We always try to give as much out as possible. Jane's cooking is a must if on offer. The views across the valley still look great even for us. Our facebook and instagram sites have the latest red sunset. All the best to you both. Leeroy More

We loved our stay at The Spotted Chook! Leeroy and Jane are delightful hosts with a wealth of knowledge on the area. We felt very welcome from the start. We stayed for a week in Amelies Petite Maison and felt very spoilt in this little frenchy cottage. The view we had from the room was private and peaceful - think... More

Well run with all the amenities you would expect of a B&B and personable hosts who were knowledgeable about the attractions of the area. The continental breakfast was substantial and of good quality, served in a dining area with a great vista to the valley below. Conveniently located in close range to Montville and Maleny and despite the wildlife on... More

It's been a couple of years ago, but our stay in the Spotted Chook is still one of our most treasured! We stayed 2 nights and I would not hesitate to stay for a week if ever we return to Australia.

We stayed for a weekend to escape the city and we found a beautiful location and very nicely appointed property. Leeroy and Jame are excellent hosts,who provide wonderful meals and have created an absolutely awesome place to escape to. The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed. Love the decor. Will be back again for our next escape.

We were staying for a wedding nearby and the whole weekend was superb. Leeroy and Jane did a fabulous private meal for 10 of us and the breakfasts were also excellent. Apart from the stunning scenery the rooms are spacious and really comfortable. Great place to stay to get away for a break.
