    « Clean and comfortable »

    We stayed two nights in this motel, our room was on the ground floor with easy access, An older motel which has been given a modern fresh makeover. Good pool area. Clean and comfortable. Easy walk to Queens park and the centre of town . Even though there is no smoking in the rooms, our ground floor unit had a table and chairs at the rear where smokers can use (provided they close the door). Would stay here again.

    « Amazing Service »

    We rang up at last moment due to stormy night to stay in Maryborough instead of free camping in our camper- van, with our small dog. We found the staff welcoming and the room spotless also our small dog was welcome to stay.

    « visit to home town after a long time »

    this hotel gave what it promised. Everything we needed was provided and we have no complaints. Room well appointed and only 10 minute walk to CBD and 5 minutes to food outlets. It is also very quiet even though on Hervey Bay access road. It has a pool although we didnt use it.

    « Car trouble »

    We had an unscheduled stop here for 3 nights. The bathrooms are brand new. The rooms comfortable and stylish. The staff are super friendly and obliging. It's pet friendly and can do your washing there. We couldn't fault the place. They made a difficult situation a whole lot better. Walking distance to a very interesting little town.

    « I simply CANNOT fault this place »

    I stay at the Kimba Lodge on a fairly regular basis. Ann and her team are always very kind, cheerful and happy to assist in any way possible. The rooms are very nicely appointed and, I believe, under renovation or recently completed. Ann takes great pride in this property. On the single occasion that I had an issue, I simply asked if it could be resolved at the time and it was, and very quickly. Some of the complaints that people make are ridiculous. I am waiting to read a comment that the water was too wet, the air had too much oxygen it or maybe that the fridge didn't keep my pizza warm. Get real, you're not paying $1000.00 a night. I have tried some of the other options in town before discovering the Kimba Lodge and let me tell you they were nowhere near as good! I would highly recommend staying at the Kimba Lodge. If you have any problems, don't write about them, let Ann and the team know. If they don't know it's broken, they can't fix it.

    « Very Happy »

    We had an enjoyable stay, the room was spotless, bathroom very clean and plenty of hot water. Even the TV remote and air controls were santised. WiFi, Foxtel and air con all available. The breakfast was yummy and will return again. looking forward to seeing the renovated bathrooms which was happening while we were there.

    « Great Stay »

    A lovely room that was very comfortable and clean (even the remote controls were sanitised!). Great shower, good WiFi and a very quiet air con!. We only stayed one night but would recommend this motel.

    « Simply wonderful! »

    I've reviewed this place before (positively), but on this trip they even exceeded MY expectations - just wonderful. Room 213 which is actually a double bedroom despite that I had only booked a room for 2; clean; spacious; inviting and so comfortable. Once again, from check-in to check-out I was so impressed. The remotes are all sanitized; the staff couldn't be more helpful if they tried, plus you get the basics of a mini-bar minus the booze at a realistic, fair price. One of the best stay's I've had :-)

    « Overcharged & no free wifi »

    Based on the excellent reviews and photos showing great looking rooms I decided to book a room at this hotel for the weekend. The reviews were right the room was large, comfortable and very clean. I also appreciated the late check in. I expected to have to use a night box but instead there was someone there to welcome me and provide a rundown of how to access my room and where to find everything. But that's were my positive comments stop. I made my booking on September 26 and as I had found a cheaper price on, admittedly by only $1. I rang the hotel as per their advertised guarantee to beat any cheaper price by 5%. The lady who took my call denied any knowledge of the price guarantee and became quite rude when I mentioned that it was advertised on both their website and Facebook page. I had some screen captures that I offered to email her but the lady was quite adamant that the price provided on their online booking system was their best price. I ended up agreeing to pay their online price. I also queried their cancellation policy and the lady again became hostile asking if I was thinking of cancelling, I told her no, I only wanted to know just in case. I asked for a confirmation email but was told there was no need and my booking was guaranteed. On checkout I was then charged $8 more than what was agreed. When I queried this I was rudely told that the price being charged was their best price. As I did not have an email I couldn't disprove her, lesson learnt. Also on the first night there were no car parks available and I was required to park in the driveway. Would I stay here again? Perhaps but only if I got an email locking in the price, it's not about the money it's about the principal. You can't advertise one thing and do another ? It's against the law.

    « Disappointing Stay »

    Had to stay in Maryborough for eisteddfod purposes. Really struggled to find accommodation that seemed reasonable. We were able to book in early which was great. Lack of parking was a problem especially when we were coming home later in the night. The parks were also very narrow. We were told if there were no parks available we could park on the street or at the hotel next door which we didn't feel safe doing. When we arrived the housekeeping staff were at the entrance to the accommodation having a break which was fine but we had to walk through the centre of them whilst they were smoking which was very unpleasant. No one apologised or looked to move away. The rooms themselves were clean and adequate for a nights stay. The after dinner mint was a nice touch.

    « Terrible Accomodation. »

    We were less than impressed to find this accommodation doesn't have any meals available besides breakfast. The odours coming from the bathroom were disgusting and difficult to eliminate as when the balcony door was opened the neighbours deck and living area was within full view. After finally getting to sleep having had to put up with lots of weird noises I was awoken at 8:30am by a lass wanting to clean the room. CLEAN the rooms after checkout !!!! Thinking we were rid of this Fawlty Towers type operation they phoned after we had left wanting a credit card number because their Best Western Card machine wasn't working. Not our problem.

    « Good place to sleep. »

    This is our go to hotel when we visit Maryborough, The bed was nice and firm, the room was very clean and they leave little chocolate mints on the bedside table. This is one of our favourite Best Westerns. I would definitely recommend this place.

    « Something special »

    The motel is on the main highway in Maryborough...close proximity to shops, parks, walks and the river...a small motel which we found to be really well run...nothing was too much trouble...right next door to a local hotel that served great meals ...everything in Maryborough is so full of nostalgia and kimba Lodge is right in the heart of it ...don't forget to do the town walk ...a free guided tour of the history of Maryborough really informative...Really traumatic experience on the road...sent to Kimba Lodge Motel by our insurance company to fix what we had to get fixed..spent a couple of nights in a normal motel suite...Thanks to Ann who looked after us sooooo well...she has worked a deal with our insurance company for us to stay in an apartment instead where we can cook our own meals..Thank you Ann you have made really bad negative into a big positive...thank you for taking some of the stress out of our and your staff have have been amazing and supportive ....a big hug to Ann and the was really sad to say goodbye....will be back.

    « Lovely »

    Absolutely lovely place to stay. Very clean and tidy, immaculate to be honest, even little chocolates on you side table. Care has been taken in each room to look after you and you room. Great spot and affordable. Highly recommend.

    « My second home »

    I stay here a lot. This is possibly the best hotel in regional Queensland. The rooms are very clean and in Maryborough that means something. Ann (the Manager) ensures all the rooms have snacks and bottle water. There's a microwave and plates so you can cook in. A BBQ is by the pool for guests to use. The rooms are recently renovated. There's no road noise either. Seriously a delight for those of us who have to spend time away from home.

    « Super clean and comfortable »

    We booked 3 rooms as part of a family trip. It is an older style hotel but very well cared for and hyper clean. Blankets and even the remote controls have been sanitised. Our rooms were comfortable and it was a very convenient location. One of us was assigned a room with bathroom facilities for someone with a disability. It was a little awkward - but good to know it is available for someone who needed it.

    « Clean and friendly »

    This hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Walking distance to the Brolga theatre which was where I needed to be. Even a chocolate on the pillow each night! Microwave and kettle in the room and a nice pub with out for reading area next door

    « Great Place to Stay. Attention to Detail. »

    Was in town for the Maryborough Music Conference. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. Our rooms (two rooms for our group) were clean and extremely comfortable. Love that that there was real fresh milk with plenty of tea, coffee, milo and biscuits. Great flat screen TV and air conditioner. Cooked breakfast is available if wanted (by order the night before). I had the yummy eggs and bacon. The bathroom had an amazing hot shower with more then enough toiletries and daily replaced fluffy towels. The bed was really comfy. It was great after a long day at the conference. I had no trouble sleeping. My friends has the two bedroom apartment. It was great for cooking meals and just relaxing. Thanks to all the staff at Kimba Lodge Maryborough. I had a wonderful stay.

    « Wonderful staff »

    The room was nice / modern and very clean. It was quite large and had a balcony. I stayed while in Maryborough for business and it was a good location for me. The best thing was the staff, I would stay again just because they were so nice.

    « Comfy and convenient »

    This is my 4th stay at Kimba Lodge. The rooms are clean and comfortable and location is convenient and close to everything. Ann and her team are very accommodating and attend to any needs happily and promptly. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!

    « Great Digs »

    Staying here 3 nights. Refurbished well. Rooms are very comfortable, tidy and modern. Close walk to town. Plenty of parking and friendly staff. Can have cooked breakfast. Best motel in Maryborough. No restaurant.

    « Best in Maryborough »

    Older style motel, tastefully and professionally refurbished with no detail overlooked. Room was very clean and well-appointed. Beats plenty of big city hotels I've stayed in hands down. Great proximity to Brolga Theatre, Queens Park and historic precinct.

    « Recently refurbished comfort »

    Stayed two nights for business. The rooms had recently been refurbished and were very comfortable and clean. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and extremely helpful! Would definitely recommend.

    « A little Jem »

    The wife and I stayed here for a stop over for an night on our way north, the Motel has plenty of parking some is under cover, the parking lot is in between the office and the accommodation block, we had a room on the top floor which was of good size and very clean and well set out,the bathroom also had plenty of room as well.The bed was very comfortable not like some Motel/Hotels beds that leave a lot to be desired.Plenty of TV channels to pick from also. Thanks to Ann and her staff for a great over night stay.

    « The best Motel stay I've ever had! »

    Recommended to me by a work colleague on a trip to Hervey Bay, I can only say that whilst it was 20 minutes drive to my appointments, this motel was the most welcoming, clean and pleasant that I've ever had. Highly recommend it.

    « Classy motel in Maryborough »

    Stayed two nights at the Kimba Lodge this weekend when in Maryborough for the Wide Bay Motorsport Complex's first Rallysprint. Excellent motel, comfortable, well appointed, great and welcoming staff. Plenty of parking. The whole motel is sparkling. Thanks for the welcoming smile Ann.

    « Clean,quiet motel within walking distance of stores »

    We enjoyed a one night stay here. The room was clean and the bathroom was a good size. There were tea/coffee supplies, fridge, etc to make a quick breakfast. There was a seat outside but someone had left an ashtray and can of beer on it which was a bit disappointing. My husband moved it off but someone put it back on the seat! The pool was refreshing and there were towels in the room for pool use. We walked a few blocks to a nearby grocery store. The pub beside the motel was closed on the night of our visit. The room we were in was well organized, decorated and cared for by the staff.

    « A good surprise »

    We stayed only one night on a quick visit to catch up with old friends. The room was quiet, very modern and well decorated, the mattresses and pillow super confortable, all meticulously clean, quiet but powerful air conditioner. The bathroom has not been renovated, but everything worked perfectly - the shower was super powerful and wonderful! Very friendly staff both at check in and check out. It was the first time we stayed at the Best Western Kimba Lodge,but it won't be the last. That will be our choice of where to stay in future visits to Maryborough.

    « Great place to stay »

    I always try to get a room here when I travel to Maryborough. It is always scrupulously clean and well presented. I love the fact that the room's decor is warm and inviting, the bed dressing is sumptuous and the linens crisp and immaculately white. The showers are full flowing - not restricted like many others- and seem to have endless hot water. Staff are warm and genuinely friendly. I always have smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on pané bread for breakfast washed down with pot-brewed black tea. The best thing is that you won't be interrupted by traffic noise as the motel is set well back from the main road and the block construction kills any sounds that make it to the building.

    « I wouldn't stay anywhere else »

    I spent 4 perfect days at Kimba Lodge. From the moment I arrived, I was happy, as the place smelt great! So spotlessly clean. The room was beautifully appointed, provided everything that you could possibly need. Also, the quietness of the motel was complete. The car didn't move, the 4 days I was there, as everything in Maryborough is in walking distance of Kimba Lodge. The staff are so very friendly, it is next door to a superb restaurant and it is pet friendly. What more could a traveller ask for?

    « Always great »

    Another great stay at this little gem of a motel in Maryborough with the charge back set up for the pub me t door for meals and drinks, all you have to do is walk next door. Some of the most stylish rooms you will ever find in country motels anywhere.

    « Best place in Maryborough »

    We come through Maryborough a few times each year, we have stayed across the road at McNevins a few times and thought we would try out Kimba again. So glad we did. The rooms are not as big but they are cosy, well equipped and nicely renovated. The staff are friendly and very welcoming. We will definitely be back!

    « Highly recommend »

    Kimba Lodge, Maryborough is the best Motor Inn my husband and I have ever stayed in. The facilities were excellent with awsome wifi connection. Good sized room well located in complex which meant no road noise with the added bonus of private outdoor area. My husband used the pool which was well kept. The staff were very friendly and helpful, reception staff even organised courtesy bus to local r.s.l. for us...... nothing was too much trouble. We would stay there again... Noela

    « Fantastic! »

    Large room, very clean. Water pressure was awesome and receptionist very friendly and welcoming. Limited car spaces under the shade sails and then some more on the other side of driveway which don't have cover but also plenty more open air car parking next door if you need it. Reception was open late which was great and took pressure off. Would return for sure!

    « The little things were missed. »

    Two night stay. Room well presented and smaller than expected. Beds comfortable lots of pillows. Remote control packets that said they were especially cleaned for us. But on closer inspection attention to detail for a higher priced stay was not evident. The screen door to the tiny balcony was unable to be locked as there appeared to be no guts to the lock leaving the only security from the ground floor patio a flimsy glass sliding door lock. As a result took valuables with us on outings. Room appeared to be very clean except for the high cupboard above the microwave that had that much dust / powder on the surface I was able to write my initial in it. Other small things were clock radio was not plugged in and microwave clock showed 1700 at 5 am obviously 12 hours in advance. TV was ok as was air con and meals. Parking was limited and bays were very narrow. Both the patio door lock and dirty cupboard were reported to reception after first night. Response was I will get these addressed today. Mum would not be happy. They were not addressed. Paid for both nights after night one and was unable to get a receipt at that time. Said the receipt would be put under the door that night. It was not. Over all a little disappointed.

    « Excellent »

    Great staff, the rooms are really nice and and quite lux for a motel, best wifi I've had anywhere in Queensland, close to everything. I've been coming up here for about 4 years now and won't stay anywhere else! Can't wait to come back next year.

    « Great Little Motel »

    My children and I stayed here for 3 nights in a room with a queen and a single bed. The bathroom was roomy and they had both a kettle and a toaster for our use as well a a microwave. These were all utilised as we had appointments early. The room was very clean and the kids fought over the little chocolates on the bed-side tables. The cleaners and lodge staff were very friendly and helpful and was greatly appreciated. The pool was a little cold (being july, we knew it would be) but my daughter still went in and had a lovely swim, in the clean pool. Over-all we loved this Motel.

    « They get little things right. »

    It's amazing how big expensive hotels can't get little things right like fresh milk in the room for a cuppa and a little shelf in the shower. This little motel does! Stayed one night on a weekend visit. Good value without it trying to look flash. Air- cons was good which is important to us. Only thing was you hear people in the hallway.

    « Owners go the extra mile to make you feel at home »

    Whisper quiet? Tick. Spotlessly clean? Tick. Comfy bed with crisp sheets? Tick. Gourmet breakfast with wide range of options? Tick. I stayed for two nights midweek in upstairs room 208 in July 2016. Even though there were plenty of other guests staying, my room appeared to be soundproofed so I wasn't disturbed by the usual irritating sounds of someone next door running a bath or watching a movie. The room was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated and has a lovely private balcony, you can even hear the parrots in the morning. No traffic noise either.There's a microwave and toaster if you need it, they generously supply fresh milk (not that long life stuff) and the shower has great water pressure, and there were 4 bath towels in my room. Car park is close to rooms and has shaded area. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly managers either, happily accomodating my request for my favourite toast. In all, I can't fault a thing.

    « Probably the cleanest Motel I've ever stayed at »

    Stopped off in Maryborough for a night on our long drive south and of course consulted Trip Advisor on where to stay and was more than happy with Kimba Lodge - spotless clean room, nice and quiet and a great price - would highly recommend and would stay here again if I'm ever down that way

    « Better on the inside »

    I was pleasantly surprised at the rooms here. They are much better than the exterior lets on, clean, well furnished, spacious and plenty of extras in toiletries, sanitised remotes, chocolates and a well-stocked mini bar. The restaurant in the pub next door also surprised with a much better menu and well prepared menus. Not just your typical 'pub grub'. Staff were accommodating with our need to plug into an exterior powerpoint to keep our 3-way fridge going after a camping trip. Having stayed in a few motels in Maryborough this will not be our first choice.

    « A local gem »

    My room at the Kimba Lodge Motel was a welcome surprise. Tastefully furnished with little hidden extras, such as chocolates on the bed and sanitised remote controls. The pub next door also has great meals at reasonable prices. Win/win.

    « Family History weekend »

    The Maryborough Best Western Kimba Lodge Motel had comfortable clean rooms. Good WiFi. Only free to air TV tho signage indicates a cable service. Good easy to find location in easy walking distance to business centre and restaurants. Too cold for the pool! You'll find it adjacent to the White Lion Hotel which has an adequate bottle shop for a cold ale and a decent red.

    « FABULOUS »

    No need to look elsewhere, just stay here. Spotlessly clean, really quiet, super comfortable bed & room service with a smile. Perfectly cooked generous serve of eggs benedict still hot straight from the kitchen. Location great, surrounded by a choice of eating options (but still have breakfast here). Every detail taken care of from immaculate grounds, pool, laundry facilities to crisp clean white cotton bed linen. Microwave, toaster, tea, coffee, well stocked fridge & nibbles with complimentary chocolate for each guest. Loved our fresh smelling room with private balcony on second floor. Definitely does not have that "clichéd hotel smell". A big thankyou to all the cleaners, maintenance crew, reception & management. You can expect another review from us as we are definitely coming back!

    « A Fortunate and Serendipitous find! »

    My friend and I were 'passing through' Maryborough and were looking for a convenient and inexpensive place to book two rooms to just simply spend the night and be on our way in the morning.... A friendly local motorist suggested and then led us (we were on motorcycles) to the Best Western Kimba - and it 'got better' from there! The rooms were large, comfortable, with large beds, quality bedding, nice furnishings, and excellent bathrooms with large and quality towels. The real treat though was the friendliness of Anne - the motel's owner. Anne encouraged us to 'stop and look' at the town in the morning - look at its many historical buildings, museums, gardens, and cafes/restaurants - all within a short walk. She even offered - without our asking - a Late Checkout - so that we could 'see the town properly'... A real gem - and must be considered on your next trip to/through Maryborough!

    « 2 night stay »

    Been a while since my last stay at Kimba Lodge .. But again .. Not disappointed .. Beds are always so comfy .. And the Best Hot shower.. Always clean and tidy wonderful rooms and greeted by the Host with a wonderful smile everytime. Always a pleasure to stay and will be back again soon .. Recommend you take a look next time in Maryborough

    « Great service and wonderful hotel »

    Had the pleasure of staying at this hotel on the weekend 30/4/16 - 2/5/16 for the world biggest pub crawl. I must say i was very impressed with the service we received. I originally booked through a booking site and the hotel kindly advised the rate booked directly with this hotel was cheaper, thank goodness it saved us a lot of money. Upon arrival we were checked in very quickly and the owner was very helpful. The room was very clean(i would know i'm very picky where i stay and it was lovely). The bathroom was a little dated but functional. I give it top marks as the water pressure in the shower was great, nothing worse than bad water pressure in a shower. And the remote was in a little bag that stated it had been cleaned. Very impressed and the chocolates were yummy!! The owner was very helpful and advised us where to go for tea and best time to get there are many places shut early in town. I couldn't be happier with the assistance and will be back next year for the crawl :)

    « Best Western Kimba Lodge - Maryborough's best kept secret »

    Quiet, spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished is an accurate description of our queen room. The property has ample off street guest parking. The mini bar was well stocked with both sweet & savoury treats. The motel caters for breakfasts only however there is a rustic pub next door which serves great meals.

    « A must stay for Mayrborough - cleanest & friendliest accommodation EVER »

    I travel extensively for work and find that by the time I get to my accommodation, all I want is a clean, comfortable and safe place to rest and rejuvenate for the day ahead. Kimba Lodge was by far the best motel I have EVER stayed in. A very well deserved 4 stars. I felt as though I could eat off every surface, the linen was super fresh (no smell to the pillows), the food was great and at a reasonable price (make sure you try the cheese platter with fruit and cold meats). The room was extremely well appointed, having everything you may need and extra milk just in case. Management and staff will turn themselves inside out to make sure your stay is positive. I am definitely coming back and have told all of my colleagues to cancel everything else and only stay at Kimba Lodge when in Maryborough!

    « A great stay - I'll be back :) »

    Comfy spacious bed with nice clean linen, awesome shower with squeaky clean towels, free wifi, decent sized TV, choccies n biscuits, washing done daily, swimming pool and last but not at all least, the warm and friendly service was much appreciated! The homely well kept herb garden was a bonus too.

    « Lovely Easter Weekend Away! »

    Loved my time here. I booked over the phone, which was super easy. Room was clean, well presented and had a homely feel to it, which I love while travelling on my own. Free wifi and clean towels each day was great. Also loved the bed, very comfortable. I tried the ham omelette from the breakfast menu, and it was delicious! Hospitality from everyone I met here was amazing. Would recommend to anyone and will staying here again next time I'm in Maryborough.

    « True Country Hospitality »

    Terrific experience from booking over the phone to checking out. The hospitality was so genuine and warm and the room was nice, clean and comfortable. An added bonus was the free wifi and the fact the cleaners will do your laundry for you each day. Just terrific for a business traveller.

    « What a surprise - a room that looks like the picture! »

    Well done to these property owners. Stayed for one night whilst in area on business. The room itself was lovely and exactly like the picture, what a pleasure. Bathroom is a dated but clean with nice fluffy white towels and standard toiletries; bonus: great water pressure. Excellent bed *****. Real surprises - little chocolates on bedside tables and a remote control in a bag that indicated that it had been cleaned - thank you. Great friendly check-in and check-out. Did not have breakfast but have two options - standard and gourmet style - will definitely try next time. Located next to a local pub, no noise. Motel does not serve evening meals but pub does (not every night). I found a very nice pinot noir in the bottle shop attached to the pub.

    « The Little Things »

    It's about the little things. I will be away from home 56 nights this year and about 12 of them WILL be spent staying at this motel. Recently in 38°C heat I arrived, pretty worn out, at about 5pm. After the usual lug of luggage to the room I was so pleasantly surprised to find that the property owners had been to the room and turned on the Air Conditioning. And not just turned it on, had it cranked down to the lowest temperature. In the heat and humidity of a Queensland summer's day it was nothing short of a godsend. I thank you so much!!!

    « very comfortable beds »

    stayed here overnight before going to hervey bay nice rooms at good rates parking can be a bit of a challenge but staff were helpfull bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean nice and quiet overnight

    « no refunds »

    I mistakenly booked this room for the wrong night through What if. As soon as I did it I rang the Best Western Kimba Lodge to cancel the wrong booking and was told that I had to cancel with What If, which I did. They told me it was up to the motel to refund the money, the motel told me it was What If. Long story short nobody refunded the money and I was out of pocket $128 for a night. So I was not impressed. I would think if you cancelled in plenty of time you should be able to get a refund. Will never stay at the motel ever and will probably not use What If again. Marilyn W.

    « Cosy »

    Everything is kept clean and the rooms have been tastefully refurbished. Whilst the bathroom was impeccably clean, it is in serious need of an update to match the room. Free wifi and foxtel are an added bonus. Overall a very comfortable stay, would recommend for those passing through Maryborough.

    « Unit stay Awesome »

    Another great trip to Maryborough made all the better with another great stay at Kimba Lodge, this time with the partner and both lots of kids .. The unit is a great nights stay, air con in all rooms and spacious kitchen and lounge .. Staff always pleasant, rooms tidy, beds very comfy and Best showers ever .. Looking forward to our next stay soon

    « Mixed review »

    I have stayed at Best Westerns before & loved them...until now At check in, the lady on reception had such an attitude towards me (I had accidentally booked two rooms by mistake & told her I only needed the one room) She didn't handle the situation professionally at all. In the end, I had to pay for an extra room I didn't need. The rooms themselves are nice and comfortable. The beds were firm but comfortable. However, our bin had not been emptied & was still full of rubbish from the previous people The air conditioner in our room was so annoying. Without even being switched on, in the early hours of the morning, it would make some really strange noises and then spend the next few hours making ticking noises. The pool was lovely, however, lights in the pool would have been great. We hopped in the pool at 7pm & it was quite dark to swim in. While we were in the pool, we saw one of the staff members pushing dirty laundry around while having a smoke hanging out of their mouth. Not very professional. Unsure if I will be staying here again

    « Nice little motel »

    Nice and clean with modern rooms and comfortable beds. One of the better places in Maryborough. No restaurant on site if that matters to you. Parking would be the only down fall. Finding that the Best Westerns are good places to stay. Would recommend this hotel.

    Please don't drive past this beautiful motel. We had a fantastic weekend here. After returning from a huge day and night out we arrived back to our air conditioned room and had a lovely hot shower. We found the rooms to be very quiet and had everything we needed. We will definitely be staying again. Thumbs up to the great staff.

    « Best beds in Maryborough »

    This motel is very handy to the centre of town and is great to stay at, in which I do often when in the area on business as it is central to Hervey Bay, Gympie and Bundaberg. The décor is exceptionally good and the hotel next door is a great place to have a meal and a beer which also offers a charge back account to your room for Kimba Lodge guest's. Great staff, great rooms and the best place to stay in town and I am booked in again for this week.

    « "The" place to Stay in Maryborough »

    I stayed here four times over a eight week period and in a different room each time , ground floor and first floor. The rooms were all made up to the same first class standard with good tv & Austar recepition , the beds were good, the rooms are quite with no road noise. Internet was free just had to plug the suppled cord into your laptop. This is an excellent place to stay. All of my futher trips I will be staying here

    « Always a pleasant stay »

    Have stayed a few times now, the rooms are exceptionally clean and tidy, in fact the whole grounds are perfectly presented in this unassuming little place. The only downfall is the limited parking - my last stay I missed out on a carpark and had to park in the entrance way, plus only half the car parks are under cover. I can not fault the hospitality and service, very friendly and helpful. I will continue to stay here when I'm in town.

    « Clean, comfortable and quiet. »

    Have stayed here 3 times now and each time have found the rooms clean, comfortable and quiet. We have been welcomed in a friendly manner each time. If you want a meal, the White Lion next door offers good food and reasonable prices.

    « Best in town »

    This is by far the best place to stay in Maryborough. Rooms spotless, spacious and you are set back off the main road, no road noise and the staff are excellent. Breakfast is great value, freshly cooked at the time you ask and always a big feed. If you are looking for a stopover in Maryborough, book in with Kimba Lodge.

    « Quiet »

    Always a great place to stay. It's quiet, friendly and always nice and clean. I highly recommend Kimba Lodge to every one. I always get the best night sleep and look forward to having a shower as they are always nice and hot and towels are always clean and crisp.Thank you to the staff for always making us feel welcome.

    « Great value »

    Comfy beds, awesome shower, secure building, great pub feed next door and sweet lady manager. Just dropped in here on the way past on the drive home late at night, but a pleasant surprise. Quiet rooms make for a great nights sleep. Will definitely be back.
