Comfortable rooms, beautifully clean pool, centrally located near Queens Park Gardens, White Lion Hotel next door has great meals and Guinness on tap. Our host Ann and her friendly staff could not have been more helpful. Have the Canadian Breakfast.

My husband stayed for business. The motel rooms are set back from the road, nice and quite. Rooms are a good size and fitted with everything you require. The highlight was the sleep quality, beds are high quality and very comfy. Breakfast was delivered on time. Check-in and Check out was seamless and the manager very accommodating. Only recommendation, book... More

I didn't actually stay at this hotel. The hotel did not have a room for me for my first several nights in the area, but I had booked it for my last 6 days. That allowed me to get settled into the other accommodation and I decided to stay there for the duration and prepaid, thinking I still had a... More

We had the "Superior Queen Room" on the 2nd floor. The room was not a bad size and quite clean and had been newly painted. Air-conditioning worked well but TV reception was a little fuzzy sometimes. The bed felt hard and both my partner and I didn't feel overly comfortable with it after the first night.. but if that's what... More

I regularly stay at this motel in Maryborough on business. The rooms have been recently renovated and decorated and are amongst the cleanest I have stayed in. Thoroughly recommend this motel to anyone looking to stay in Maryborough. Anne in reception is also very friendly and willing to help. The pub next door called the White Lion also probably does...

Kimba Motel should be used as a model for all new motels!
