I always try to get a room here when I travel to Maryborough. It is always scrupulously clean and well presented. I love the fact that the room's decor is warm and inviting, the bed dressing is sumptuous and the linens crisp and immaculately white. The showers are full flowing - not restricted like many others- and seem to have... More

I spent 4 perfect days at Kimba Lodge. From the moment I arrived, I was happy, as the place smelt great! So spotlessly clean. The room was beautifully appointed, provided everything that you could possibly need. Also, the quietness of the motel was complete.

Another great stay at this little gem of a motel in Maryborough with the charge back set up for the pub me t door for meals and drinks, all you have to do is walk next door. Some of the most stylish rooms you will ever find in country motels anywhere.

We come through Maryborough a few times each year, we have stayed across the road at McNevins a few times and thought we would try out Kimba again. So glad we did. The rooms are not as big but they are cosy, well equipped and nicely renovated. The staff are friendly and very welcoming. We will definitely be back!

Kimba Lodge, Maryborough is the best Motor Inn my husband and I have ever stayed in. The facilities were excellent with awsome wifi connection.

Large room, very clean. Water pressure was awesome and receptionist very friendly and welcoming. Limited car spaces under the shade sails and then some more on the other side of driveway which don't have cover but also plenty more open air car parking next door if you need it.
