The Wiss House is a character filled "Queenslander" style heritage-listed house. The photos of the original Wiss family make you feel as though you have stepped into a part of Queensland's history when you walk down the hallway.
The furnishings are tasteful and fit in well with the style of the house. All the guest rooms lead out onto a large verandah. Each room has airconditioning, and ours had screened windows and also some fans.
Sara, the host serves a good breakfast. It includes fruit, cereal, toast, orange juice, tea, coffee, and a cooked menu. The crispy bacon was fantastic!!!
The guest lounge has a great selection of DVDs, magazines and books. The pool looks quite inviting (but we didn't go in).
You need to be prepared to share a bathroom. There were 3-4 guest rooms (each I think had king beds), and we only saw one toilet and bathroom. As you would expect with a house of this era, there are a few creeky floorboards.
The only thing that really needs attention is the lighting. We had to go to the guest lounge to read at night time because there were only a few lamps that cast light over the bed in our room.
The 'little' things were there - like a jug of water on arrival, aerogard on the verandah, some chocolate at night time, bathrobes, nice towels and face washers.
We found this location provided easy access to the bushwalks around Spicer's Gap, Cunningham's Gap and Lake Moogerah.
