Spotted Chook Ferme Auberge
Ranked #4 of 9 Montville B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 23, 2009

We stayed in the Snowpea room, which opened onto a little porch & garden , and also had an extra couple of single beds in nook tucked around the corner where our 7-year-old daughter slept, so it was perfect for our small family. The little creek down bottom of the property is picturesque. Leroy and Jane were incredibly friendly. The breakfasts were luscious, with eggs fresh from the spotted chooks out the back. Altogether a wonderful weekend.

I booked this trip last minute and wasn't sure what to expect. When we got there we immediately were struck with how French and how clean this place was. You're greeted by the owners- both are very nice!! The decor is just adorable- very country and very french. The rooms are very big and spacious- and each room is different and unique.

The breakfast there is amazing- there is a mixture of fresh fruit, cereals, hot breakfast with gourmet bread and very delicious jams.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who needs some R&R. It's worth every dollar!

A Warm and inviting ambience greets you at the door when you arrive at this 'home away from home' in the hills of Montville (a mere hop, skip and a jump away from busy Brisbane). And the family pets are also willing to greet you if you are so inclined....cute, cuddly and totally addictive....... A Dog, A Cat and a Kitten...

Aside from the natural beauty surrounding this abode which beckons you as you wind your way through the hills, I am struck as always by the lushness of the mountains. Spotted Chook is amongst it all, relatively peaceful though on the main drag and with adequate facilities.

The decor is French Provincial I think, though different interpretations abound - simple, neat and tidy. I stayed with my mother at "Amelies" for mothers day. The Room had a fireplace, verandah with open air spa and a BBQ for those enthusiastic about preparing a meal overlooking the mountains. A Kitchenette is also within. The bathroom was a very generous size with little window seat near the shower and a claw foot bath for character (perfectly functional of course) - it also caters for handicapped persons which I noted would suit my father.Amelies has a dedicated driveway and parking space a few metres from the Main building. Generally warm and spacious though not super plush for those of you wanting a 5star experience. I also didn't notice whether or not wireless was available.

The main building offered a fireplace and DVDs if needed.

Noteable aspects of our one night stay were our host Martine Lokan (filling in for the owners as they were away). Bright, cheerful an exceptional cook if breakfast was anything to go by and with a perfect temperament for dealing with people of all types who must come her way. Martine was exceptionally friendly and willing to have a chat anytime. My communication with the owners was done by email and I gained a sense of warmth and professionalism here also. They were accommodating enough to let us Stay at Amelies for one night even though this is usually booked for a 2 night minimum.

As pet owners, we couldn't get enough of the new kitten - all animals are welcomed within the main house giving it a family appeal and natural warmth expected from such a place. I did however notice that an older couple at breakfast were less enamoured with the pets - but you can't please everyone. We even had a visit from the older cat during the evening down at Amelies which helped us miss our cats at home just that little bit less.

One criticism - the pantry in the kitchenette seemed to have cockroaches and the dinnerware, glasses etc was dirty/dusty and possibly in need of replacing as it seemed a little too stained/chipped/cracked for my liking.

All in All - a very pleasant stay and one I would recommend to others.

Five friends decided to spend a "girls' sewing weekend" in the Montville region and through prior recommendation, chose The Spotted Chook. Some of our members have been to France and raved about the French furnishings and ambience, combined with our down-to-earth Australian feel. We were right at home from the beginning with a superb breakfast each morning. We were even treated to a traditional French cake which was delicious, freshly baked for us on Sunday morning. There are approximately five rooms and a separate honeymoon suite as well and all have different furnishings and colour schemes. They all have different aspects of the wonderful Montville views and we enjoyed the log fires for the chilly nights. We have no hesitation in recommending this great B & B. You will be delighted.

Jane & Leeroy are the warm & friendly hosts of this beautiful french style B&B. We stayed in a lovely self contained & very private cottage for our wedding anniversary. The spa bath on the deck overlooking the valley is great. Breakfast is made to your liking with a generous serving. Everything was awesome & we can't wait to go back.
The photos on their website ([--]) are just as it is - stunning!
