I stayed in Cabin 7 with not too many expectations, which was probably a good thing. It's definitely not a luxury cottage, but nice enough with the daily breakfast hamper, spa bath and view which was overall fairly good. It is at the end of the main strip where all the shops and cafes are, so it is a walk-able distance to and from the cabin IF your cabin is at the top of the driveway, which mine was... I cannot say the same for the other cabins further down the steep driveway.
Also, because of Montville's mountainous topography, the cabins are on steel "stilts", which seemed like they were NOT braced sufficiently as the cabin was swaying fairly significantly from normal wind conditions. I believe the cabins are structurally sound but it was a little unnerving experiencing the swaying motion. As a structural engineer, it bothered me.
But overall, I enjoyed my stay, mainly because the Montville/Maleny area is gorgeous, the Maleny cheese factory is the bomb and the nearby walks are awesome.

The staff here are amazing and the customer service is phenomenal. The accommodation is also amazing. It is walking distance from everything in Montville but just on the outskirts so you feel very secluded. I will definitely stay here again

We arrived on Friday night after dark - the entrance was unlit and the sign very small - hard to find. The very steep driveway of about 75m was only lit for the top 15m - after that you are on your own with only small unlit signs indicating turnoffs to cabins. Found our parking spot(uncovered) and then had to find our cottage and make our way down ten steps in the dark with no external lighting functional and no lights left on for us inside the building. Strange old building, musty smelling, no wardrobe and the only shower out in the open plan in the spa. No direct access to the small viewing deck. Breakfast ingredients stingy - one rasher of bacon per person. No dedicated pedestrian access - walk 75m up a very steep driveway - defeats the whole reason for staying in town so you can walk everywhere. Our complaint about the absence of driveway lighting was not actioned. Response by management was that how could they fix something if they did not know it was broken? Customers should not be used for quality control!
Would expect and have received much more for my $350.00 per night.

Room Tip: No fitness centre and no pool to clarify ratings above. the tip would be to find another place - I w...

Treetops Seaview Montville offered the perfect escape. The cottage we stayed in was lovely, and private - with no other cottages looking over or into ours. I loved the view from the spa and the hamper upon arrival. I wouldn't consider this a luxury getaway, but rather a down to earth, private escape. A short walk to the shops and dining options, Montville has an amazing set of waterfalls at one end of town and a beautiful lake at the other.

After a lot of research to find a suitably luxurious and secluded spot to celebrate our ten year wedding anniversary we phoned Treetops Seaview who assured us they would be able to give us one of their best cottages, so we booked.

We loved the welcome hamper of champagne and chocolates and breakfast provisions but unfortunately the luxury stopped there.

The accommodation is very tired and needs an update. Relaxing outside to enjoy the view was let down by sitting on cheap plastic garden furniture and a power line in front of the cottage.

Even my shower was spoilt by a towel that was pungent with the smell of bleach.

Unfortunately the worst part was the bed which was saggy and left us both with really sore backs in the morning.

After talking to reception in the morning they offered to move us into another cottage for an extra $50 cleaning cost or cancel the second night with a full refund. We took the cancellation.

Not exactly the luxury experience we had hoped for.

Treetops has a great location, fantastic view from the spa & verandah but I really feel it could do with some TLC. It is definitely missing the 'special touches' that most other accommodation in the area offer (like chocolates on pillows, flowers in rooms, wood in woodheater, congratulations cards). At best, just some silicone around the spa & replace blown light bulbs. We only stayed one night & still was provided with a breakfast hamper with the lot. The location is great, The Montville Pub has THE BEST meals in town & service to boost & it's straight across the road.

Room Tip: We stayed in Bowerbird & it had a fantastic view!

Me and my wife stayed for three days/two nights. Fantastic views and nice and quite. Walking distance to Restraunts and shopping. Highly recommended. A breakfast hamper was dropped off to us each afternoon so a relaxed breakfast is assured. Well worth the effort, book early as rooms are gone at least a month ahead.

Room Tip: The Eagle looked like it had the best views.
