In an area where premium accommodation abounds, this more budget oriented location ticked the right boxes for us. Close to town, easy to find, well presented. And the view was magnificent. Perfect for our requirements, and nicely priced.

What a gem of a place in Maleny. The owner was gracious, friendly and kind enough to give us a room that was not right next door to another occupied room. The room was clean, had coffee making facilities etc. But, the best part about the room, was the view.....absolutely picture perfect. We had a great meal for dinner next... More

Typical three star style motel, clean rooms, undercover parking, quiet, great views, reasonably priced, friendly owners and conveniently located within driving distance to a number of hinterland attractions. Recommended. Note that four nearby restaurants are within easy walking distance, but you may find them pricey.

We had a wedding at Maleny Manor and did not really want to pay the rates most accommodation options charge in this area. The motel's location was excellent as it was only a few minutes drive from the wedding venue. Noel, the manager even offered to drop us off there but my husband decided to drive in the end. Very...

It's everything that has been previously stated. Dated and uninspiring but clean, comfortable and a view to die for. I'd love to buy this place and turn it into something very special. I didn't think it was worth $110 (AUD) a night for the two nights we stayed there, there are far better places I've stayed for a lot less.... More

The rooms at this motel have a fairly outdated interior style, as well as rather dated furniture and fixtures. That said, the bed and bedding were still fairly comfortable and there was plenty of space in the room. The rooms overlook the valley with great views. However, they also overlook the main road, which runs right in front of the... More

We spent 3 nights here and loved it. The hosts went right out of their way to accommodate us and it felt like no request was a problem. The rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. Fantastic spa bath! Anything else was provided on request including really sharp knives for the amazing fruit we purchased nearby. The view was... More

We spent the night here and really enjoyed it – as others have said it is an older style motel but don’t let this put you off. It’s clean, tidy, very comfortable with everything you need if you’re getting yourself ready for a wedding (iron, hair dryers etc) – most people staying here are usually attending weddings nearby. Great views... More

We spent a night at The Morning Star Motel just this weekend as we were attending a wedding. This is certainly an older style motel but it has the most friendly and accommodating owners and it is clean, beds are comfy, has all the amenities one needs (kettle, toaster, microwave, crockery and cutlery etc.) and is just 5 minutes out...

Motel is a fairly standard 80s construction, located 5 minutes' drive from the centre of town. As noted elsewhere, the bathroom could probably do with updating, but generally the rooms are well furnished, everything is clean and functional. Bed especially was very comfortable. Rooms and outdoor area have a great view of the coastal plain to the north-east, which more... More
