Never get rid of your chef the meals are to die for, presentation perfect and your staff are gems.

Compliments to you and your staff, we have had one of the best holidays ever.

I stayed here after my flight was cancelled and arrived very late to a very warm and friendly welcome. The room was very neat and the bed had lovely linen to make my stay very comfortable. The facilities in the room provided me with everything I needed. The highlight was the beautiful dining room and the lovely home cooked breakfast. I would love to come back and explore the area another time as I had to race off and catch my flight.

The couple who manage this Lodge have done a wonderful job updating the lodge and make visitors very welcome and looked after during their visit.

It’s a lovely home away from home.

My husband and I stayed at the country lodge for a week for their tours. Absolutely lovely part of the world. We had a great time, the hosts cannot do enough for you and the food was amazing. There was even some surprise entertainment. Felt like a home away from home, will definitely will come again and recommend it to our friends.

Your kind hospitality, and the rich variety of experiences shared with such a lovely group of fellow travellers in a glorious part of the world, made for a truly delightful break, and Philip and I want you to know how much we appreciated it all. Back home in freezing weather, we are relying on the warm memories from last week to keep the cold at bay!

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your hospitality during my stay at the Country Lodge last week.

It was very kind of you to give me so much of your time, especially when you have such a lot to do. The friendly service of your staff who have provided me with assistance and kindnesses is also very much appreciated.

I enjoyed the group tours and your lovely home made meals. For me it was  an experience to remember! I look forward to seeing you again next year.


Great spot nestled up on the Range, clean and affordable, close to some great restaurants. Perfect for a weekend away.

Joined a small group of seniors for a six-day package holiday. Provided with a very comfortable room and enjoyable home cooked breakfasts and dinners. Our included daily bus tours enabled our group to experience every beach resort, most tourist attractions and just about every other village on the Sunshine Coast. Besides the motels excellent location overlooking the coast, it also provided a venue for some fun and laughter.

A great budget style tour for seniors, 6 days of accommodation, simple Homestyle cooked meals in the evening, starting with crispy hot rolls, then roast chicken, fresh roasted potatoes and pumpkin with greens, followed by apple crumble. (That’s just Monday night) All to be enjoyed with a house red or white wine or a beer (at a very reasonable price) in the cosy dining room. The menu is simple and varied and freshly cooked daily. Breakfast is continental style, muffins, cereals and fruit, with a selection of breads to toast and conserves and juice.

The bus takes you somewhere different every day, so each day gives you a different view of the beautiful Sunshine Coast. You will need some extra spending money for some great shopping.

Late in the week is entertainment night, host provides rendition of Dolly Parton, with crowd participation, lots of fun!!

This is a value for money budget style tour, so don’t expect more. Most certainly worth it.


Some of the Lowood senior citizens spent a week in this motel and could not fault the hosts, or the tours they provided us with. The meals were excellent and varied. Also quite large portions. The entertainment on the last night by the hosts, was fantastic and very funny. We all had a fabulous time. The bus drivers were great too. I would recommend this motel to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday in a beautiful area.

I spent a seven day holiday at the Country Lodge Motel back in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that I returned again for another holiday recently. The location is superb, the meals are outstanding, and the hosts are friendly and helpful. The daily tours are interesting and varied. A holiday at the Country Lodge Motel represents extremely good value for money.
