This should be advertised as a two couples stay not nine bed house as it was uncomfortable. Two upstairs bedroom and beds were comfortable but down stairs beds and sofa bed were unusable and made for a very uncomfortable stay. The thin walls and no insulated floor above downstairs bedroom meant that the slightest turn in bed made it noisy...

After the booking was made, I received an email from her advising of a further charge of $50 for extra cleaning because...

Management response:

I won't even bother responding to this ridiculous review. I am overseas at the moment and according to my staff they did not even enter the cottage. Anyone who can see - around a corner!- that a bed is sagging deserves absolutely no answer! But for the record - Cape Cottage is only SIX years old!

We were really happy to have chosen to stay at the African Cottage. It was in a great location between Maleny and Montville. We tried Matilda's food and it was delicious (we wish we ordered more!) The cottage was clean and nicely decorated to an African theme. It was an enjoyable and comfortable stay.

Management response:

Thanks for your lovely words! We enjoyed having you here and hope you will be back soon - to enjoy some more delicious food! Winter in Maleny is magic. Cosy fire at night, eating comfort food. Maybe a relaxing massage. Thanks again!
