Guest Reviews and Comments September 2021
5/5: Google My Business Page, September 2021: We had our wedding at Australia Zoo and stayed in this Country House Bottlebrush room. It was a bit far but the drive was worth it. The place is really clean, spacious and feels really homey and relaxing. There are a lot of inclusions as well and the view is amazing. It was the perfect place to stay for any occasions especially if you want to relax and escape from the city buzz. Karin made us a big breakfast in the morning which is divine. I am so excited for our next stay to this country house. Thank you so much again Paul and Karin
10/10: bookingdotcom, September 2021: Home away from home. Amazing hosts. Incredible breakfast . Very clean comfortable relaxing quiet
5/5: Tripadvisor, September 2021: Very tucked away, perfect for those looking to escape for a weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Country House at Hunchy, opting for the premium luxury package for 3 nights. The package included a 3-course breakfast each day which was superb, and Karen is more than happy to change out one or more ingredients to suit, and/or adjust portion sizes according to your needs.On our last evening we chose the in-house meal option (a couple of days’ notice needed as all the ingredients are freshly sourced) which was excellent, and topped off very nicely by the fresh trifle which was delicious. The accommodation is super clean & tidy and quite spacious, and the fact that there are only 2 suites adds to that feeling of exclusivity. If I had one slight negative it would be the slow wifi – Karen did inform us of this as part of check-in but it would have been nice to be able to use a streaming service like Netflix etc during our stay. On balance though, would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a Sunshine Coast getaway with a luxury feel.
5/5: Google My Business Page, September 2021: We had this place for our wedding accommodation. It was a really lovely stay. Stunning view. The suite is big and luxurious. Paul and Karin are great hosts too. And to top it all, food is really good. Can’t wait to come back there and relax.

Guest Reviews and Comments July 2021
5/5: Tripadvisor, July 2021: Fantastic can’t wait to go back. My partner and I did the 2 night luxury romantic hinterland rainforest escape, I can’t recommend it highly enough. Paul and Karin’s hospitality is first rate and Karin’s cooking is like what you’d find in a fine dining restaurant. All the food was exceptional and in generous servings. The rooms are huge with high ceilings and the bed very comfortable. There is only one other room so at most there will only be two other guests on site. The in room massages were also excellent. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

5/5: Google My Business Page, July 2021: Such a wonderful experience. The rooms are very large and luxurious. In room massages were definitely a highlight as well as the beautiful meals made by Karin and the high-tea. Could not have had a better weekend away and we are already looking forward to visiting again. Highly recommend!!

5/5: Tripadvisor, May 2021: Fantastic break. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Country House at Hunchy. The premises are off the beaten track but very handy to Montville – which is part of the charm. They are clean and spacious. The easterly view is magnificent! Hosts, Paul & Karin, are personable and welcoming. Meals were unbelievable – Karin is a fabulous cook. You certainly wont regret staying – rather, I think you will regret passing up an opportunity to stay at The Country House!
Guest Reviews and Comments April 2021
5/5: Google My Business Page, April 2021: The Country House at Hunchy was superb. The accommodation was clean, modern, and comfortable. Our hosts were friendly but professional. Karin’s cooking was delicious and generous. The venue is out of the main stream yet handy to the entire area of Maleny/Montville. I highly recommend The Country House at Hunchy
5/5: Google My Business Page, April 2021: The Country House at Hunchy is a venue all discerning travellers should experience. Five star plus more luxury accommodation at its best. Unsurpassable cleanliness. Food made from scratch, constructed and displayed to Michelin standards. Hosts urbane, amiable and solicitous without obsequiness but with measured humour. Just book it, you will not be disappointed
Personal Email, April 2021: “5 stars. Totally out of the box. Without doubt this is the best B&B we have stayed in in our collective 148 years. Accommodation spacious, luxurious and aesthetically stunning, band box clean. Food – a cook’s dream- organic, from scratch stocks, cereals, soups, pastries, jams & sauces- Michelin star rating at its best. Hosts amiable, very solicitous, intelligent & witty without being intrusive. We could not recommend this venue more highly, Col & Patsy, Stayed with friends, stayed in April 2021”
10/10: bookingdotcom, April 2021: Perfect relaxed luxury. Paul and Karin are attentive hosts and made us feel cared for. The food and service is 5-star. The cleanliness of the property is immaculate. Despite the poor rainy weather we enjoyed our cosy, relaxing stay
Guest Reviews and Comments March 2021
5/5: Facebook Page Review/Recommendation, March 2021: We have just had the most memorable, relaxing and enjoyable stay at The Country House at Hunchy. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome, and several little touches throughout our stay (such as checking the weather and road conditions for our 6-hour drive home on day of departure) made it obvious that Paul and Karin care about their guests on a personal level, not just as a source of income. Their excitement when I proposed to my partner at dinner was genuine – I’m pretty sure Karin was even more excited than my partner was – and I’m very grateful Paul was on hand to film the moment for our families at literally a moment’s notice. The rooms were perfect – I’m normally getting antsy after about 3 nights in a hotel, but I comfortably stayed here 5 and was devastated to have to leave after that! Spacious, beautiful and homely rooms with stunning and peaceful views from the Rainforest suite in which we stayed. The 3-course breakfast each day was of course a highlight. All the food tasted amazing, and the pride in which Karin described each dish and the locally-sourced produce used was obvious. Most days we struggled to get through all 3 courses, and found ourselves skipping lunch, we were that well-fed and satisfied from breakfast! Paul’s knowledge of the surrounding areas was second to none and helped us make the most of our stay. And of course the location was perfect… away from all the hustle and bustle from the city life, but less than half an hour away from almost everything you could imagine doing on a holiday. Kondalilla Falls, Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, Bird World at Maleny, Rick’s Garage at Palmwoods, and Australia Zoo were the main attractions we managed to squeeze into our stay, all of which were located less than half an hour away. I honestly can’t wait to stay there again. Can’t recommend highly enough.
10/10: TripAdvisor, March 2021: A Country Palace by far. We had the pleasure of being spoilt by lovely people called Karin and Paul over 4 nights. Their Country House is Five Star plus in the decor and lights. They spoilt us from sunrise to sunset, nothing wanting. We had the pleasure of staying in the Bottlebrush Suite that had everything from wines to robes. As for the three course breakfasts, oh wow. As a must you need to have a dinner there as Chef Karin is the best. She sources all the local products and serves up a extensive menu that suits all tastes. Not to forget Paul, a man with heaps of knowledge of the local area, and once he knows your coffee favourite makes it the same way every day. We felt so privileged to share their home with them. Thank you guys, look forward to returning

Guest Reviews and Comments February 2021
5/5: Tripadvisor, February 2021: You won’t be disappointed!! We have just returned home from the most wonderful stay at The Country House at Hunchy. Paul and Karin are the owners of this amazing property and they treated us with 5 star service from the time of booking. Everything was perfect, from detailed checkin information to a beautifully presented large room with everything you could possibly need and more. We are so glad we booked to eat dinner at this beautiful property as Karin’s cooking is outstanding. The 3 course breakfast was also another highlight of our trip. We will definitely be a return customer!
10/10: bookingdotcom, February 2021: What a great place for the weekend traveller to stay, great accommodation and great food. The Breakfast was awesome great quality ingredients and well presented, coming from the hustle and bustle of city life what a beautiful relaxing location, you can feel the serenity. What would have been better was for us to stay an extra night for a totally relaxing weekend, two nights would have been much better
Guest Reviews and Comments January 2021
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: Just what we needed. The 3 course breakfast was delicious. The owners were great with their communication from the minute that we booked and were very warm and accommodating during our stay. The location was beautiful and very peaceful, relaxing and serene, great views and the sounds of the wildlife was lovely. The suite itself was spacious and very clean and well laid out with lovely interior. There were little touches that I thought were just well thought out eg. face wipes for removal of make up in the bathroom and darker face washers for make up removal so you wouldn’t destroy the pristine white bath towels. It’s just smart as works for guests as well as the owners. They had everything you would need and more
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: Amazing stay, well worth 5*. Beautiful house with gorgeous suites… the grounds are kept immaculate as are the rooms and house itself. Service was incredible, food was super tasty. The views are just amazing. Would highly recommend this for a luxury couple get away. Can’t thank Karin and Paul enough. It was just all perfect!
5/5: Tripadvisor, January 2021: The most wonderful and superb experience. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at The Country House at Hunchy. 5 Star luxury and 5 Star hospitality from Paul and Karin. We originally booked for one night but within an hour after arriving and meeting Paul and Karin and experiencing the tranquility and beauty of the place we booked to stay a second night. Karin is an amazing chef and our breakfast each day was simply fantastic. We left feeling more relaxed and refreshed than we have in a long time. The room was beautifully finished and extremely well appointed and nothing was left wanting. The Country House at Hunchy is located in a beautifully green, peaceful and lush habitat, surrounded by rolling hills with plenty of bird life and other fauna. We had such a lovely stay, we will definitely visit again. Our thanks to Paul and Karin for making our time there so special and relaxing. They went above and beyond in making our stay so enjoyable
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: One night away with the hubby was not enough, we will definitely be back again! Karin and Paul were amazing hosts. They were so friendly and accommodating which made our stay one to remember. The in house dining was spectacular, the food was absolutely amazing and the time between dishes were well spaced out. If you are thinking of dining in, make sure you come hungry as you don’t want to leave leftovers. It was delicious
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: Our favourite short stay to date! Location is amazing if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Meals were superb and exceeded our expectations. Room was beautifully appointed with big fluffy towels, crisp linens and a king size bed. Every small detail was thought out. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. I cannot recommend The Country House at Hunchy highly enough
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: A very quiet surreal break, with scrumptious food that you couldn’t fault. I loved the ambience of the property. The Hosts, Karin and Paul were excellent and the food was amazing. Will certainly go back, as it was a beautiful relaxing stay with scrumptious food and great hosts. There is nothing not to like here. We were accommodated to a high level of food, excellent and comfortable accommodation. Very clean property that was an absolute joy to stay in
Personal message to our Facebook Page, January 2021: ‘Please include the following in your review section. My husband and I stayed at The Country House for 2 nights and highly recommend this beautiful accommodation. Attention to detail and the hosts Karin and Paul could not have made us more welcome. They went over and above in ensuring that my dietary requirements were taken care of and even included a gift on my birthday. Karin is an amazing cook, preparing top class food with mostly organic and local produce. Book this place for any time you want to feel special’

Thank You Email, December 2020
‘Dear Karin and Paul
Thank you for creating a truly tranquil ,luxurious , and delicious holiday experience. Every detail of comfort and luxury was available in our suite, whilst the quiet surrounds and lush gardens made for an idyllic setting. Karin’s breakfasts and dinners were generous and a gourmet delight. You were most genial hosts, the wine as part of our package and other goodies were special, so too was the bouquet of long stemmed roses which were gifted to us for our anniversary. Our stay was the highlight of our year. Many thanks Julie and Ross’
Thank You Note, December 2020
10/10: bookingdotcom, December 2020: Perfect getaway! So peaceful. Loved the pool and the room was very spacious. We had dinner in one night and the food by Karin and Paul was great. Second night we went to The Long Apron at Spicers, a must! Food was exceptional. If you go for the luxury package when staying here, it includes a bottle of wine, coffee in your room and a delicious 3 course breakfast. Karin and Paul really go out if their way to make it such a special stay. Highly recommend
5/5: The Country House at Hunchy Facebook Page Review/Recommendation: My partner and I had an amazing stay. The room was the best we’ve stayed in and the addition of breakfast made our weekend away just that more enjoyable. Highly recommended and we will be back
Guest Reviews and Comments November 2020
5/5: Tripadvisor, November 2020: 5* experience. We were fortunate enough to have a weekend stay with dinner at The County House on the recommendation of friends. The whole experience from walking through the door to leaving was truly 5 star. We have stayed in lots of high end luxury hotels before but the accommodation on offer here along with the location of the property is outstanding, as is the service provided by the owners Paul and Karin. The breakfast included in our package and the additional meal we purchased were home cooked by Karin. They were of an extremely high quality and knowing that Karin had prepared every aspect of the meal from the home made Danish pastries to the slow cooked lamb made the meals even more special. A return trip is definitely on the agenda!
Thank You Card, November 2020
Guest Reviews and Comments October 2020
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Fantastic. Wonderful hosts and a lovely short drive from the main Montville shops
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Very hard to beat. All the meals were excellent – never had better at any hotel that we have stayed at. The rooms lacked nothing in comfort or accessories.
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Would love to stay longer next time. A great place to relax and close to SC hinterland spots! We celebrated my husbands birthday overnight. We arrived after a huge downpour to Karin and Paul who immediately made us feel welcome and relaxed. Dinner was amazing and the breakfast was also a standout! Everything was wonderful, it was an excellent stay.
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Relaxed getaway. It was one of the most relaxing stays. The bed was super comfortable. Plenty of space to lounge around. The quietness of the place is so calming. Karin and Paul were an absolute delight. Their meals were delicious. They also had a wealth of knowledge about the area and places to visit. Would definitely come back
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: The breakfast was great and the location was very comfortable. The room was awesome and we loved that they supplied a lot of local produce in the mini bar and the breakfast was also locally grown and sourced. We went to one of their recommended restaurants (Harry’s on Buderim) which I think we will be going back to because the food was delightful and the service was outstanding. We’ll be going back to stay and go to the restaurant in the near future.
