If you wish to "get away from it all" with a loved one, this is the place for you. Rain forest views from a delightful warm expanse of polished timber floors, old style comfortable leather lounges, gas fired heater ( looks like a wood fired fire place, but clean and no work) friendly but unobtrusive staff, and blessed silence, except for birds, and possums visiting at night.(on the roof) The walking tracks on Tamborine cover everything from vigorous (Witches falls) to easy (Curtis falls) and are well worth doing to wear off the delicious food on offer in the village. Recommended for all ages .

Once again we were wowed on arrival. It really is a very special place so close to Town and it felt good to support our own local tourism industry! Check in was lovely and quick (temps were taken for Covid check). Our room was beautiful and we immediately felt relaxed and as though we were miles away from civilisation. Unfortunately a couple of things were disappointing (again)! The TV and particularly the audio is dreadful and of the cheapest quality and both those and the bathrooms need replacing/updating as they are not at all luxurious or even nice. We were also disappointed with the dust, cobwebs, mould in the shower, ratty (and with incorrect information) compendium and broken blinds. These things are always important and expected for the quality and price of the accommodation but even more so in Covid times to reassure your guests that the rooms are thoroughly cleaned between occupants :-( If these things were rectified it would truly be a luxurious property set in a world class location.

Zero complaints, in fact I have a thousand too many compliments. This place is incredible, the staff friendly and the room (which is more or less a full, 5 star, cabin) beyond amazing. Our only critique is the restaurant, which has a degustation menu, recycled three nights per week. We recommend changing this to include a non-set menu, because we would have loved to eat there again on the second night, but we had already tried the entire menu and because of this we ate elsewhere. Smart business would be to alter the set menu to include more options, or at least change the set menu nightly if you're going to keep it. We highly recommend Pethers, and we look forward to staying there again!

What an absolutely gorgeous and relaxing environment from the amazing rainforest to the beautiful sounds of the surroundings. Had the absolute pleasure of staying for 3 nights in our beautiful cabin. The service was like no other I have found, nothing was a hassle for them. On my last day unfortunately I fell ill and had to be taken to hospital ( personal reasons nothing from my stay) and my partner had to load the car up and everything and the office lady’s offered to help her threw the whole way and then called me the following day to check up on me. Very caring people can’t speak highly enough of them. I recommend everyone stay here at least one to soo how remarkable Pethers really are. Thank you guys for making my stay a memorable time for me and my wife. Amazing place
