Pomodoras is one of those places that you wouldn't typically expect to find.
For one, having an entrance opposite a mechanic might put people off looking for an idealic mountain getaway, however surprisingly this is all but ignored once you arrive.
We purchased the 2 night package inc a 3 course meal for the 2 of us, macaroons on arrival with a bottle of bubbles and continental breakfast.
The cabin itself is near new with an incredible view of the Obi Obi creek. Furnishings are to a high standard with a massive bath overlooking the creek. My only gripe for the stay was the amount of moment in the cabin due to it being perched so high on it's metal stumps. Even the lightest of footsteps resulted in the whole cabin rocking. It was unnerving at first but we got over it soon enough.
Cooking facilities are provided in a kitchenette, the bedroom is a separate room to the living and bathrooms and there is a decent sized balcony to sit and soak up the nature whilst spotting platypus swimming upstream.
The location is superb!
Only 100m to the Maleny hotel with it's old world charm and wood fire. Just the thing to settle down infront of during a cold, winter escape.
Adjacent to the hotel is Woolworths and from here you'll find restaurants, chemist, supermarkets, and a seemingly endless supply of quirky cafes and bookshops.
Our meal that night was something to be remembered.
I was expecting such a meal deal to be quite limited, (usually you will be given a choice of 2 meals) however to be told we could choose from the entire menu what quite a surprise.
My lamb, her chicken were cooked to perfection, as were the accompanying vegies and pasta.
The desserts however are what you really come to Pomodoras for!
My chocolate fondant, her creme brulee, both exceptional. Simply amazing.
Overall this is an experience I will remember for all the right reasons.
To find a place that has near new accomodation, incredible meals, super central location all for a more than reasonable price, what more could you want?
