“A Brisbane based getaway”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We stayed at the Leatherwood Lodge for a night away from our young children- we are Brisbane based and felt like we coudl have been on Mt Tamborine or even up near Maleny. it was quiet, fresh, crisp and extermely comfortable. Home cooked breakfast for our Sunday rise. A wonderful retreat that wont be kep a secret for too much longer.

We had 3 wonderful weeks there. The lodge is so close to Brisbane city, but also so private. You can relax with the sounds of the bird in the background and enjoy at the pool and everything at this place. The rooms are so comfortable and clean. A very high quality of service. The meal especially the breakfast is awesome, like in a 5 star hotel. You get everything you need, no matter what time. For us it was a big trip in our life, and it was the best trip we have ever had! A wonderful choice for a unforgetable holiday, you won't be disappointed!

This was a great experience for me to spend sometime in this beautifull place. I hope everybody can understand my english as I am from France. May be my words are not proper enough to describe this gorgeousunusual house with lot of wild birdsaround in anycolors that we are not use to see here. Rooms were very confortable and we had excellent food and breakfast with a smooth peacefull mood.
It was every thing I like to be relaxed in vacation.

Room Tip: You can choose any room it just depend of if you like sunny or shade place.

I stayed here when on vacation from the United States. If you are looking for a wonderfully unique downunder experience I could not recommend Leatherwood Lodge more highly. The natural bush surroundings are pristine and enable easy relaxation. The bedrooms are luxurious and very private set apart from the lounge and dining areas which themselves exude grandeur. All this secluded in the bush yet close to Brisbane city! The hosts went out of their way to make the entire stay a very special and unique cultural experience. Undercover parking is a big plus too. Great for any trip purpose, and you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: They are all beautiful and individually themed.

This is an exceptional boutique Lodge set in a tranquil bushland setting just 20 minutes from the heart of Brisbane's CBD. The rooms are beautiful as is the decor and artwork and the owners go out of their way to look after you and make you feel as if the guesthouse is your own home. As a bed and breakfast every need is catered for with modern facilities, hand crafted furniture, quality inclusions and excellent communications with Wifi broadband internet included. We have stayed at Leatherwood Lodge on a number of occasions and it is by far one of the friendliest places to stay where the rooms are equipped with everything you could wish for. The owners also provide a breakfast which would equal any five star hotel in the world. The Lodge looks out towards Brisbane and has magnificent views of the city skyline from a distance. A superb pool and sitting out area off the sumptuous living area and included library allows you to relax and take in the gardens, varied bird life and the rustle of the breeze through the eucalypts and native vegetation. Staying at Leatherwood is a welcome getaway experience for us and we cannot recommend it too highly if you like friendly service and exceptional quality at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: The room near the large outdoor deck is the one we like

I have had the pleasure of staying at the lodge and number of times. It truely is a home away from home. The architecture of the Lodge has to be seen to be believed, the setting is so tranquil (imagine the Rainbow Lorikeets on their own Ferris Wheel viewed from your verandah)!! Can't recommend it highly enough!!

Leatherwood Lodge provides a unique and different kind of 5 star experience to the impersonality of a luxury hotel. There is privacy but also the sense of being at home in very lovely and tranquil surroundings. The award-winning architecture of the Lodge, the tasteful and lovingly decorated guestrooms, attention to detail, the elegant and expansive drawing room (which is also a gallery, library and music-room), the pool, bush setting and native gardens, and the warmth of the owners and staff all make staying here simply delightful. I have stayed here several times over a period of years and always leave reluctantly.
