We stayed in Mistover Cottage the night before our wedding and our wedding night. It was the perfect serene location within a two minute drive of our wedding venue at Maleny Manor. The hosts were wonderful to deal with and provided extras on request to help with wedding day preparations (e.g. extension cord). The cottage gardens were sensational at the... More

Breakfast was delicious. Nice to have a fire place with all wood kindling paper and fire starters provided. Port. Coffee. Biscuits complimentary. The cottage is a little on the small size but nice verandah, lovely gardens, country cottage feel. The hosts are very accommodating and friendly.

We were fortunate to be the only guests during our stay which added to the relaxing ambience. Our cottage was well equipped and very clean with a pastoral outlook. We booked the Toorak Indulgence package for four nights. The welcoming cheese platter, although delivered a day late, was very generous and lasted us for three days. Our continental breakfast was...

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Bendles. We had never intending to stay in the Maleny area at first, as we were beach bound, but were so pleased that we did.

Our cottage at Bendles was fantastic! The surrounding gardens were beautiful and our cottage was cosy and had absolutely everything we needed! Thanks again to the hosts for such a great stay. Sue and John respect your privacy but were extremely helpful too. We especially loved our breakfasts while at Bendles!
