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... More

It has two large bedrooms open plan living with a fully functioning kitchen! Beautiful breezes in the summer on the balcony that overlooks endless... More

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. I asked cleaning staff if she could clean the outdoor chairs so that we could use them I was... More

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... More

I was a little apprehensive about my stay at Possums Tail because of previous reports I had read but my apprehension was ill-founded. The cottage is well appointed although the bath is really only suitable for a midget but it requires a good spring clean. I do not intend to itemise the minor items which need attention suffice it to... More

We stayed mid-week at the Badgers Wood so it was very private. While many of the Montville cottages have fabulous views to the coast this is a little cottage had lovely views of the pretty surrounding bush gardens with lots of bird life. It is opposite the cheese factory (which turned out to be very handy and well worth a... More

We stayed 4 enjoyable and memorable nights in 'Possums Tail', which was situated in a beautiful, peaceful location. The accommodation was pleasant, kitchen facilities modern and clean, bathroom has been renovated and clean and linen excellent quality. We stayed using 2 Cudo vouchers which was very good value. As we had 2 vouchers, we received 2 very generous and enjoyable... More

We recently visited Maleny to attend a wedding with a group of friends, With most venues booked out months in advance, we opted to stay at Peacock Meadows at the House of Laurels, which was still available. It was definitely not a modern venue. There was no insulation (upstairs was very hot) and you could hear everything that was going... More

In response to your stay in Peacock Meadows, our country cottage can be viewed on line and photo’s clearly shows a more country ambience as appose to modern, which we imagine booking guests view prior and have had great reviews towards the cottage. Being a A frame cottage, insulation is not possible, but it has air-conditioning/reverse cycle to control temperature... More

Had our wedding at house of laurels in July'15 and had multiple guests stay in the accommodation possums tail/ badgers wood and the main house. The venue was great, people were telling us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The accommodation was clean, tidy and very comfortable. Defiantly opt for the breakfast the next day!... More
