Stayed here again on a work trip and the rooms have been refurbished. I stay here 4 times a year and the rooms were great before but even better now(if that's possible). Ann's warm, friendly and always obliging service remains at a high as per usual. This place is seriously above its rating and with the new refurbishments, its definitely... More

I stayed in the disabled access room at this motel for 2 nights and it was very comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were good...not too old and flat! In fact, they were quite supportive. In the end, I had to leave early in the morning so I paid my account on the afternoon prior to leaving. I... More

I recently stayed again at this GREAT motel over the weekend again . To our surprise all of the rooms have been updated (we didn't think there was anything wrong before) With all new furniture and fittings. SURPRISE SURPRISE still the same OLD PRICE. Nice clean surroundings with happy staff that couldn't bend over enough to help us. The breakfast... More

Whilst travelling with work, they had booked me into the Best Western Kimba Lodge with Ann and John. Upon check in, I instantly felt welcome and as if I was right at home. The staff are exemplary, in particular Ann, who after my four day stay I was actually sad to say good-bye to!! The house-keeping staff (all locals, very... More

This was my third visit to Ann & John's Motel. It is so convenient to the centre of Maryborough and the Brolga particularly. I stayed 2 nights the first visit, 3 nights the second visit and 4 nights in my third visit. Each time I had a very comfortable stay. The rooms are very pleasant and always clean. Whatever time...

I’ve stayed at Kimba Lodge the last 15 years (once or twice a year) for business and it’s been wonderful every time. Ann and John are always very welcoming, the rooms are always clean and tidy and the breakfast is always excellent. I have also stayed with John and Ann when on holidays with my family, again excellent.

Maryborough is a town with limited reasonable hotels/motels. Recently renovated I found the Kimba Lodge Motel not only quiet but clean and comfortable. The staff were both polite and efficient. Whilst the motel did not have a restaurant it did provide a good breakfast to the room. The pub/hotel next door provided a high standard of pub food i.e. quality... More

Reasonable room, reasonable price, good people, convenient location. We found the bed a bit too firm but that might have been just us. No restaurant but there is a pub next door that does meals (good lunch) and a restaurant right opposite that was very good for the evening meal.
