Excellent, modern facilities. Located close to the Maryborough city centre. Room was clean, bedding fresh. Pricing is very competitive for the area. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. Next door to an excellent restaurant.

After a long day on the road we were lucky get a room anywhere. Kimba Lodge gave us everything we could wish for at a great price. We were given a ground floor room at the back which was fairly quiet and had a little outdoor table as well. The room was spacious and well supplied with all the things... More

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.

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
