A hidden gem not far from the bustle of the Gold Coast. Beautifully kept Reastaurant with sweeping views of the Coast and hinterland and interesting local art to match. A lovely Finnish couple who are the owners provide excellent company and go out of their way to provide local knowledge. The accompanying small chapel, used for weddings, adds to the... More

Our room was very clean and the shower had very good pressure. The meals were absolutely wonderful. The bed was so comfy. Hilltop hosts could not do enough to make our stay an enjoyable one. Will definitely go back for another stay.

My 3rd visit so far, since July, 2013. Lucky enough this time to be there during an art exhibition by Maki Horanai. Beautiful, allegorical pieces. Once again, excellent care and hospitality by our hosts. We were a bit anti-social, as we were there for relaxation. We like cabins. Others may prefer full-on bedrooms. I am sure we will return. I...

We didn't eat at the cafe because we had already eaten, but will do so next time we are in the area...as the dining area was very appealing with superb views all the way to Gold Coast City's skyline. The gallery in the main house and the church on the hill was exhibiting paintings and ceramic pieces by Maki Horanai,... More

Our hosts were welcoming, wonderful, friendly and kind. We stayed in Room 1 and if you are a fan of B&B's as opposed to five star hotels then Hilltop on Tamborine will resonate with you. It is a bit out of town but the local taxi company were very accommodating and helped us with booking cabs in advance.

Stayed here for Valentine's Day in 2014. Was very surprised to find that the main accommodation is essentially a house. Our room was the size of a small bedroom. The bed was creaky and the room was decorated in outdated furnishings (which I found odd, as the venue doubles as an art gallery). Our room didn't have a mini fridge,... More

It's always great discovering hidden gems....Tucked away in a winding road up Mt Tambourine we discovered Hilltop by chance. Perfect setting for a wedding as the café/restaurant has a cute little chapel next to it....Totally amazed with the views when we entered the café through the Art gallery exhibiting Local Art. Very friendly staff, European mother and daughter team, we... More

We were very unimpressed, The staff were inexperienced and even admitted that they had never waitresses before. Asked for a table with a view and were told the tables were taken however the entire time... More

This is a gorgeous place to stop and admire the incredible views from Mount Tamborine. Run by a delightful Finnish couple, the art is as spectacular as the views, and the food is great too. Gaze over the trees down to the Gold Coast or look north towards Brisbane. Mount Tamborine is an absolute gem, and this is one of... More
