It is inspiring to experience a couple who have such a positive attitude and a " nothing is too much trouble" outlook.Australia needs more hosts like this in hospitality. Bed was super comfortable. Great value with a superb outlook. Lovely to have the Terrace Restaurant next door and the cute gardens cafe just down the road for a wholesome breakfast.... More

I would warn people to get a written quote or request an email/text confirming the price as when we arrived to check in the price was $40 more than quoted when we booked. In our case the customer were most certainly not right as they refused to acknowledge that they would have given the lower price. We had no real... More

We were delightfully surprised. The tariff is very reasonable so we weren't expecting stunning views, modern bathroom and very comfy beds. The manager was very friendly and helpful with local knowledge. Definitely putting this on the 'visit again' list and happy to tell friends about.

We stayed here the night before a friend's wedding at Maleny Manor, which is conveniently just across the road. This place is clean, has charm and offers an amazing view. Staff are very friendly and accommodating and a very cheap breakfast for $3 is available. You also have a fridge, TV and iron in every room. Go for the spa... More

Stayed overnight this month with a family of four. The rooms are small but clean and adequate for a short stay. The owners were delightfully friendly, and on this basis alone would recommend this motel to travellers requiring short term accommodation within the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. This is a basic motel with good amenities, which is great for a night... More

We stayed at this motel November 2015. It exceeded our expectations. I was not expecting much as I chose the cheapest accommodation I could find closest to the wedding venue Maleny Manor. We stayed with our 2 children and were very comfortable. The view from our room when we woke up was truly breathtaking. For a motel it really does... More

We recently stayed one night at Morning Star Motel, while spending time walking in nearby national parks. It was a last minute reservation and reviews seemed good. The room was very clean and much as we expected. The view is also excellent, however it overlooks a busy road. There are excellent restaurants within a short stroll. However, there was a... More

This motel is so not what I would normally choose. Stayed just the one night for a wedding at Maleny Manor which was straight across the road. Was pleasantly surprised to find a brand new bathroom, lovely soft new carpet and bed covers. Beautiful view. The bed was very comfy and the room was spotlessly clean. The owners Blanch and... More

I booked my stay last minute to attend a wedding at Maleny Manor across the road. The owners were the friendliest and most helpful people offering to drive me to the wedding. Clean tidy room, warm and comfortable, good hot water pressure and a view to die for. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Morning Star! The noise outside the... More
