We spent a weekend away from Brisbane, in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Halfway between Maleny & Montville at Balmoral Lookout, Roseville House enjoys beautiful views over the hinterland out to the ocean. The federation-style Queenslander has been beautiful preserved, with wide verandahs wrapping around most of the house, beautiful communal dining and living rooms and immaculate, flower-filled gardens.
We stayed in the Grevillea Cottage, but we were able to take a sneak peek at the other rooms before other guests checked in. All three rooms are luxurious, but my favourite from what I saw was the Provincial Room – I felt more relaxed just standing in the doorway!
We stayed in the Grevillea Cottage, which was absolutely perfect. It’s beautifully decorated, complete with kitchenette, a dining table for two, bath & shower and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We had our own small verandah, which was the perfect place to sit with a mango cider and enjoy the spectacular sunset over the gardens.
Of course, a beautiful room is important but what really makes your stay at a B&B is the host. Roseville House is owned by Peter & Addie, who are warm, friendly and the perfect hosts.
They also make a mean breakfast!
Breakfast is included in the room rate and considering our two-course breakfast would have cost about $35 each plus juice and coffee at a cafe, the room was really a bargain! Each morning there was a delicious fruit platter, cereal, tea, coffee and a variety of juice followed by a big hot breakfast. Despite all the delicious food we ate every day in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, every night David would be already dreaming of the hot breakfast the next morning!
As we were (sadly) leaving on Sunday, we both agreed that our stay was faultless – a beautiful house and cottage, gorgeous rooms, great food and wonderful hospitality. All the ingredients for the perfect, relaxing weekend away.
