Property info

The Polish Place was first established in 1983 and offers 4.5 star award-winning, self-contained chalets on Tamborine Mountain, overlooking 180 degree views to the west. The Polish Place is your ideal location to experience a romantic getaway. Set the woodlog fire, relax in your double spa and enjoy a drink or two while watching the sun set over the mountains. Each chalet has a dining area, kitchen, laundry facilities, private balcony, and a loft-style bedroom, complete with ensuite bathroom with double sized rainfall showers. A double spa is in the lounge room, facing towards the wood-log fireplace, flat screen TV and stunning views. Your privacy is paramount, but expect our friendly lorikeets and wildlife to visit you regularly! Enjoy scrumptious Polish cuisine, beers and vodkas in the Polish Restaurant. You may also wish to choose our 'in-room dining' option and not leave the comfort of your chalet! Our signature dish, "Roast Duck for two with Cherries and Apples" is a favourite, as well as other traditional dishes such as Pierogi, Pork Hock, and Bigos, and a large selection of Polish beers & vodkas!
