“Dog friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Stayed here a couple of nights with our dogs (One of the only places on Mt Tamborine you can take them). The cottage had everything you needed to feel at home. Friendly owners.

Room Tip: Get the cottage - lots of privacy

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

We spent 2 nights in Gumnut Cottage. It's a good sized cottage with everything we needed. Comfortable bed with a lovely view out to the forest. Big verandah with a fantastic view down to the Gold Coast. The living area has 2 settees, TV, DVD player, radio etc, there is a dining table & chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped including a plunger coffee maker with coffee. We enjoyed our 2 nights here very much. Unfortunately the cottage was booked out for the Saturday night but we moved into the Lyrebird Suite for that night. This suite is very nice, extremely comfortable, nicely decorated and again has everything you would need. Only thing is, no view. We didn't have breakfast but if you do, then it is supplied on the verandah of the house - where you do have a fantastic view over the coast.
Loraine and Daryl were very friendly and welcoming without being over the top.
Do go for a walk in the bush at Witches Falls. If you're really quiet and you go early-ish in the morning (before too many people are tramping around talking at the tops of their voices) you may be lucky enough to see a Lyrebird. We went there twice and were lucky enough to see a Lyrebird each time.
If we return to Mt Tamborine, we would definitely stay at Hillside in Gumnut Cottage and would recommend it to you.
Compared to the South West of Western Australia, we felt that this place was quite expensive but it seems to be about average for this area and I presume it is because it is so close to Brisbane.

Room Tip: Go for Gumnut Cottage if you can
