Somehow our booking got mislaid, the staff were wonderful and went out of their way to find a table for us at short notice, the night before mothers day, they ensured that it was not an issue, saving me from a very embarrassing evening, especially as it was my wife's birthday. The service was as usual exemplary, excellent champagne, beautiful...

We stayed over the Easter break for 3 nights and had an absolutely amazing experience. We arrived early and our villa was ready which we were very impressed with and it was very welcoming. We then headed over to the spa for a massage which was a great way to start our break followed by dinner and drinks at the...

We visited Tamarind during a visit to Maleny after it was recommended by friends. The food was fantastic and the flavours really worked together. The Mooloolaba prawns were fresh and cooked perfectly. Desserts were also a highlight. Thank you.

We stayed for 2 nights. The reception was very good and the room was comfortable if a little shabby. We went to the bar at 5.30pm and were told someone would help us and we were ignored so we left after 10 minutes and went into Maleny.The bed was too soft for us.

We stayed three nights for a special wedding anniversary gift to ourselves and we can honestly say it was one of the most relaxing weekends away we have ever had. Our room was well appointed with quality items which just made it feel that little more luxurious. From the cheese platter that was brought to our room on arrival, to...

Stayed for one night (unfortunately!) to celebrate our anniversary. The location is amazing, so nice & quiet, beautiful bush views from the balcony. We walked the short trail to the waterfalls, we could also hear them from the villa. The degustation at the restaurant was excellent, and breakfast in the room was great too. Definitely want to come back again...

There were lots of little things not quite right. The outside lights didn't work, nor did the torch on the key ring. We had to tell three different people about a food allergy. There was no way visible to turn on the microwave. The shower was great - if you wanted to wash the whole bathroom and toilet. The wi-fi...
