Frequently Asked Questions about Accommodation in Tamborine Mountain.
Any queries or comments that you may have can be directed to our resident lounge lizard Bikkie our much loved Labradoodle.
If Bikkie doesn’t know the answer she will refer you to either Kay or John.
The following are the most faqs that Bikkie has referred on to us.
Do you have Internet Access?
Yes, free WiFi is available throughout the building. Connect from your room, the guest lounge room, or from your verandah.
What are the breakfast options?
We offer our guests a complimentary healthy continental breakfast. That breakfast currently consists of cereals, museli, porridge, juice, yoghurt, fruit, various breads, toast, tea and coffee and seasonal compliments such as avocado. Our guests have mentioned that this breakfast is sufficient. It is simply a self-service breakfast so that guests can come and go as they please within a specified time frame.
Nevertheless, because of our central location, we have found that most of our guests still wish to do their own thing, get up in their own time and wander down to Gallery Walk (a short stroll away) and enjoy brunch at one of the cafes/restaurants.
We therefore leave it for our guests to decide –an early quick start breakfast at Amore or breakfast elsewhere – it is for our guests to decide.
