Whisper quiet? Tick. Spotlessly clean? Tick. Comfy bed with crisp sheets? Tick. Gourmet breakfast with wide range of options? Tick. I stayed for two nights midweek in upstairs room 208 in July 2016. Even though there were plenty of other guests staying, my room appeared to be soundproofed so I wasn't disturbed by the usual irritating sounds of someone next... More

Stopped off in Maryborough for a night on our long drive south and of course consulted Trip Advisor on where to stay and was more than happy with Kimba Lodge - spotless clean room, nice and quiet and a great price - would highly recommend and would stay here again if I'm ever down that way

I was pleasantly surprised at the rooms here. They are much better than the exterior lets on, clean, well furnished, spacious and plenty of extras in toiletries, sanitised remotes, chocolates and a well-stocked mini bar. The restaurant in the pub next door also surprised with a much better menu and well prepared menus. Not just your typical 'pub grub'. Staff... More

My room at the Kimba Lodge Motel was a welcome surprise. Tastefully furnished with little hidden extras, such as chocolates on the bed and sanitised remote controls. The pub next door also has great meals at reasonable prices. Win/win.

The Maryborough Best Western Kimba Lodge Motel had comfortable clean rooms. Good WiFi. Only free to air TV tho signage indicates a cable service. Good easy to find location in easy walking distance to business centre and restaurants. Too cold for the pool!

No need to look elsewhere, just stay here. Spotlessly clean, really quiet, super comfortable bed & room service with a smile. Perfectly cooked generous serve of eggs benedict still hot straight from the kitchen. Location great, surrounded by a choice of eating options (but still have breakfast here). Every detail taken care of from immaculate grounds, pool, laundry facilities to... More

My friend and I were 'passing through' Maryborough and were looking for a convenient and inexpensive place to book two rooms to just simply spend the night and be on our way in the morning.... A friendly local motorist suggested and then led us (we were on motorcycles) to the Best Western Kimba - and it 'got better' from there!... More

Quiet, spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished is an accurate description of our queen room. The property has ample off street guest parking. The mini bar was well stocked with both sweet & savoury treats. The motel caters for breakfasts only however there is a rustic pub next door which serves great meals.
