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

I have stayed here twice, first in July, 2013, and secondly in January, 2015. I loved it on both occasions, and recommend it to others. I need to emphasise to others that this is a B&B, not a 5 star, supercilious, extortionate car-parking hotel type place. The hosts are welcoming, generous and caring of their guests. The food is excellent... More

We too arrived mid-afternoon, and after inquiring of the owner where the 'accommodation' we had pre-booked, might be found, we too were shown to a medium sized outbuilding, resembling a demountable site office, comprising two 'masonette' flats, at the front of which which had been constructed an awning, over a narrow veranda. Our end, I immediately noticed, upon entering, was... More

My husband and I decided to stay up on Mt Tamborine Mountain as we feel Gold Coast can be a hectic at times. We arrived and we were greeted by the owners and their daughter. They showed us around and telling us a bit about the Art Gallery and Local Artists that they also have and are constantly changing(you can... More
