Two night stay. Room well presented and smaller than expected. Beds comfortable lots of pillows. Remote control packets that said they were especially cleaned for us. But on closer inspection attention to detail for a higher priced stay was not evident. The screen door to the tiny balcony was unable to be locked as there appeared to be no guts... More

Great staff, the rooms are really nice and and quite lux for a motel, best wifi I've had anywhere in Queensland, close to everything. I've been coming up here for about 4 years now and won't stay anywhere else! Can't wait to come back next year.

It's amazing how big expensive hotels can't get little things right like fresh milk in the room for a cuppa and a little shelf in the shower. This little motel does! Stayed one night on a weekend visit. Good value without it trying to look flash. Air- cons was good which is important to us. Only thing was you hear... More

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.

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.
