FAQ’S 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 FAQ’S 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?
Our hale and hearty complimentary, large and healthy continental breakfast has been given the tick of approval from guests including some in the medical professon. That breakfast currently consists of (gluten free) museli, weetbix, sultana bran, corn flakes and special k. In the cooler months porridge will also be available. We also provide orange juice, yoghurt, quite a lot of fresh fruit, toast, tea and coffee. When in season avocados from our non spray tree are available. Much to our guests’ delight, home made jams (made by a local lady) are on offer, together with the usual breakfast favourites of vegemite, honey and peanut butter.
Nevertheless, because of our central location, we have found that some 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.
