Have just returned from a two night stay at Possums Nest with friends. We could not have asked for more. The house is very roomy with two double bedrooms and the availability of two more double beds made up from couches. A nice verandah area with a BBQ. A fireplace that we just loved even though the evenings weren't terribly... More

We just had a two-night stay in Badger's Wood cottage and it was lovely! It was simple to book and travel to from Brisbane. Our cottage was romantic, cosy, and warm. The fireplace and spa were definite highlights! The location is gorgeous - very quiet, private, and comfortable. Close to both Maleny and Montville. We enjoyed every part of our... More

House of Laurels has a nice venue. Unfortunately, as attested to by other reviews, the customer service leaves a lot to be desired. From failing to be available when arranged and only attending to other prospective clients on the day of the wedding, to failing to respond to immediate and multiple attempts to notify of guests' illness and then being...

My wife and I attended a wedding at House of Laurels. The wedding was very nice and the area is great. Unfortunately, half of the guests got food poisoning or something similar at breakfast the next day.

It's a good idea before you write a review you should always make sure you have your facts straight as for everyone getting ill you will read that it was proven not to be... More

My wife and I went to a good friend's wedding at the House of Laurels. The food at the dinner was very ordinary - a main course of tough roast beef. My wife also attended a breakfast there the following morning and she (along with many others) suffered a case of food poisioning. Rather than addressing this issue House of... More

House of Laurels hosted my 30th birthday and I could not have been happier with the whole weekend! Amanda and Chris were amazing hosts that went above and beyond! Amanda's flare at decorating the venue and ensuring everything was ready to go was outstanding and Chris' ability to keep the party going (he even helped as DJ for a while!)... More

We stayed in Badgers Wood for one night while we were attending a wedding nearby. Very impressed with the cottage, beautiful spa bath, robes and comfy bed. Relaxed check in and out procedures. The cottage had a fire and would be beautiful in the winter! This place would be perfect for couples looking for a private and quiet holiday at... More

We just returned from two nights at Possums Nest. The place was very nice. Great breeze even though it was very hot. We booked this on a CUDO deal and think we got a great deal. If I had paid full price I may have been a bit dissapointed. We had this booked on another date but due to unforseen... More

We held our wedding at House of Laurels on 18 October. The venue is beautiful and the food was lovely, but we were very disappointed with the organisation on the day and subsequent dealings with the venue. We enquired in advance about set up on the day (flower and cake delivery, and centrepieces as we provided our own) and were... More

Three of us stayed at Possums Nest, one in each bedroom each and one on the sofa lounge. As there was no one at the office when we arrived we found the accommodation fairly easily as we drove down the side street. First impression when opening the door was wow as the view from the many doors and windows was... More
