I’ve stayed here on a number of occasions now and have always enjoyed my it. The rooms are nice a quiet, clean and comfortable. Restaurant and the service are great and I enjoy going to dinner when I’m here. I would recommend this place to anyone that wanted a nice place to sleep and a good meal.

There is a lot to be said about customer service and the impact it can have on a business ??? My husband and I recently stayed at Malanda Lodge with friends on 20/5/14 at first I thought this is a nice place, 'Wrong', checked in by a very rude and arrogant man who made us feel like we were a...

We recently stayed at the Malanda Lodge Motel, and although I was reluctant to stay we chose the Lodge as it was the closest accommodation to the venue our seminar was to be held and it was reasonably priced. I had stayed there once before in 2007 and at the time the decor appeared to be tired and very much... More

I'm a little surprised at the comments you have made about our motel. If everything you have mentioned was important enough for you to put on TripAdvisor, why didn't you mention it to management when you first arrived, so that we could actually see the "poor state" you claim our units are in? As we have only recently taken over... More

This was a stop for just one night on our North Queensland trip, so I was just expecting a motel experience. We were pleasantly surprised: an edge of town location with lovely gardens and rural outlook, a comfortable, quiet room with good facilities and very friendly hosts. We walked into town and found it a bit quiet so we decided... More

Good place to stay. Facilities e .g. Spa looked good but we didn't use them. Owner very welcoming. 1.5k walk to town was a nice stroll. Would go again. Plenty of stuff provided in bathroom and clean towels. If you want to feel welcome give it a go.

This is the worst accommodation I have had in years. Dirty,dark,and in need of a make over. The bed and pillow were terrible - unable to sleep. The bathroom was dirty as was the crusty spoon I stirred my coffee with. Too dark to see until too late. The TV remote worked only at random. I cannot believe anyone would... More

Just had the best motel experience. We were treated to the best meal ever. The chicken supreme was incredible, as was my char grilled steak. The fire place created a lovely atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and had a lovely view of the gardens. We woke to the morning calls of the kookaburra. We... More
