“Special, satisfying stay”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Daniela and David have truly made this a special place. The cottages are private yet still close enough to all mod-cons and wi-fi to remain connected. The sensational spa bath and cosy log fireplace makes for a perfect evening, only to wake up in your own time to a breakfast hamper of homemade bread and free range eggs. The location is also ideal with national parks and beautiful sunsets within walking distance.

Room Tip: Cottage 5 was well suited for my stay, though more cottages were being built at the time.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and the comfort of our newly renovated cottages.
We do believe that our location on Tamborine Mountain is one of the best as guest can walk to many of the local attractions and restaurants as well as wineries and of course Witches Falls, Queensland's oldest National Park.
Thanks again for your visit and for taking the time for a review.
We are looking forward to seeing you again, Daniela & David

On the spur of the moment we decided to take a break and did a quick google search for somewhere secluded, peaceful and not too far from Brisbane. We found Witches Falls and stayed overnight on a Thursday in Cottage 4.

Arriving quite late in the evening after an easy drive down from Brisbane we checked in, ordered our BBQ breakfast hamper for the morning, selected a few DVDs and were walked to our cottage by torchlight. A quick rundown from Daniella on what was where and how to work everything and we were left with instructions to 'come on up to the office and let us know if you need anything else'.

The cottage itself was just beautiful. Spotlessly clean and with everything we could need or want, right down to bathrobes.

Our pre-ordered BBQ dinner pack was delivered as we were enjoying our complimentary port and chocolate and it completely exceeded all expectations. The quality of the food was exceptional and there was more food supplied than we could possibly eat..... and the dessert - yum!

Breakfast was delivered around 8am and we enjoyed cooking and eating it in our very private courtyard. The bread is even better than everyone says it is!

Every element of our stay was sensational from the moment we left home. The drive was easy, the location beautiful, the hosts and cottages welcoming, the luxurious bathroom with the spa and that amazing shower, the fireplace, the comfortable elevated bed, the fresh food, the wildlife, the private courtyard and bbq. I'm looking forward to returning for a longer stay next time.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms are the same. We stayed in Cottage 4 which I liked as we were right at the e...

Absolutely sensational place to stay. Lovely stone cottages with an elevated bedroom, lounge and kitchenette with an open fireplace to set the mood. Bathroom was gorgeous, glass windows floor to ceiling overlooking the garden, with a massive double spa bath. Private courtyard with BBQ and rose garden. The breakfast hamper was superb and the hosts couldn't have been more helpful. If you wanted to venture outside and explore the area, nice wineries, cheese factory, bush walks and great eateries to navigate.The Old Church restaurant topped of an already fantastic location. Perfect for a romantic few days away. Would thoroughly recommend this place.

Room Tip: I stayed in cottage number 5, don't know what the others were like, but it's position was pe...

i would first like to say , this place is amazing and very friendly, excellent location and the breakfast was great. the only downfall was booking the rainforest suite. very disappointing,
is nothing like the lodges,which are beautiful.the owners were fantastic and if the rooms were not fully booked would have swapped us to a lodge.so if your booking make sure you don't book the rainforest suite

Room Tip: do not book the rainforest suite.

Dear Ralph,
We sensed your disappointment as we showed you the Rainforest Suite which you had booked online but obviously by mistake as you expected to stay in a cottage.
The most important thing for us is that our Guests enjoy their stay. Unfortunately all cottages were fully booked so we couldn't change your room which we happily would have done.
The Rainforest Suite is different than the cottages and we believe we are very careful to explain the differences. Many guests prefer it over a cottage as they just love that outdoor spa and the extra space in the courtyard garden.
We hope you see you again soon to enjoy the comfort of our newly renovated cottages.
Best Regards, Daniela & David

My wife and I booked a short getaway over the weekend and this place was beautiful. Rooms looked new, clean and refurbished. Weather and atmosphere up there was ideal to just cozy up by a fire!

Service was impeccable. David & Daniella were such warm and friendly hosts who were very attentive and gave us good insight on whats to see/do in Mt Tamborine - thank you!

The massage organized was really good too and highly recommended.

We would def be back !

This place is just a fantastic little getaway that is within an hour from Brisbane.

Service is warm and friendly and very relaxed.

For the price location and accommodation this a perfect gift for your partner and even better if it rains as the fireplace inside creates an atmosphere that only fires can do.

It was the second time I stayed here and was just as good as the last time.

Lastly there are plenty of wineries around with two of them walking distance which is great after some wine tasting :)

Enjoy

We wanted somewhere special for our 20th wedding anniversary and Witches Falls Cottages didn't disappoint; our hosts were charming and the cottage was delightful. To sit in the lovely large spa looking out to a very private garden was a treat.
The gourmet breakfast hamper was delicious and exceedingly generous with a loaf of freshly baked bread, still warm from the oven.
The bed was very comfortable, as were we.
The real question: would we go back again? Absolutely! (and I can be hard to please)
