We stayed at Badgers Wood when attending a wedding. I'll start with the good things. Location excellent, spa was very nice, bed was very good, surroundings were very lush and relaxing albeit a bit over grown. Now the not so good. Cottage very tired, needs a refurb. Keep in mind this is not cheap accommodation. Taps were rusty and loose....

We again stayed at Possums Tail cottage which is set in very pleasant countryside with lovely views of the fields from its balcony. It location is great for easy access to Maleny and Montville with Caloundra also being only 30 mins The cottage is ok, but still needs some tlc and general upkeep. Fresh lick of paint, repair some holes...

Nice 2 story cottage in the grounds of a wedding reception venue. We stayed 2 days mid week. Quite a large cottage, double bed downstairs off the living room and a double and single upstairs. Toilet downstairs, full bathroom upstairs. Furnished very "cottagy". We enjoyed our stay but really feel the place could do with an update as it is...

I stayed there in Possums Nest 2 years ago and supplied a list of things that had to be done. 2 years on I decided to give it ago again. To my dismay, the list I gave them must have been thrown away as all was ignored. I had invited friends from Brisbane to stay and share the meal that...

My partner & I stayed in Possums Nest for 3 nights while attending a wedding nearby. When booking, we were confirmed with a wheelchair accessible room (my partner is disabled), but when we arrived we found the room wasn't completely accessible. He couldn't even enter the room without assistance due to quite a large step at the front door. He...

We stayed at Possums Nest for 2 nights and found the accommodation very nice. 3.5 Star rating, but only because it is starting to show its age a little. The Kitchen was excellent and had everything needed for a weekend (like us) or a fortnight. The beds were super comfy and the fire place was a god send when the...

My husband and I took advantage of a Deals voucher and stayed at the Badgers Wood cottage at The Laurels. It is located directly across the road from the Maleny Cheese Factory (one of our favourite places at Maleny). Badgers Wood Cottage is a cozy little place with one quite large room containing a kitchen, a lounge with a wood...

We stayed at Wattle Lane for a family wedding...the upstairs area is ok but the bedrooms and bathroom downstairs are ramshackle, cupboards without doors, disgusting rotting cane ceiling fans, busted flyscreens, chairs too dirty to sit on, fake fingernails lying around.

We had a family event so stayed at the Laurals Wattle Lane property. Location and grounds are good. However the property was not as good as I thought. The property is large and reasonably well appointed, but let down on several fronts. The place felt and looked a bit grimey, and the rooms downstairs had a strong musty pong. The...
