The Terrace Seafood Restaurant and Terrace Cottages of Maleny have come together to create a perfect place to eat and unwind, thanks to owners Pauline and Craig Mitchell.

“We always thought it was a great idea to have accommodation next door to our restaurant,” says Craig. “Guests can just stroll down for a meal and enjoy, without the worry of driving.”

In 2003 Pauline and Craig Mitchell bought a property next door to their established business, The Terrace Seafood Restaurant.

This property was originally owned by Aub and Joyce Bergann and was connected to the motel next door, called The Logger’s Rest.  Joyce and Aub owned and operated this motel for a number of years and then expanded, built the cottages and called it Affaire d’Amour.

When Pauline and Craig bought Affair d’Amour it had six cottage-style rooms with lovely views, a swimming pool and a shed. Since then, they have built a conference room, a penthouse villa, a studio villa and a wedding gazebo. They also bought the house next door as a manager’s residence.

For a number of years the property was leased, but now Pauline and Craig are back at the helm, along with their friends, experienced accommodation operators, Neale and Alison Fischer.

By serendipitous coincidence, Neale and Alison used to operate the late Joyce and Aub’s motel about 10 years ago!

The boutique accommodation has beautiful gardens boasting over 12 varieties of camellias, thanks to the late Joyce Bergann, and coastal and hinterland views.

Mid-week packages are on offer, and include dinner at the Terrace Seafood Restaurant, enjoying the popular signature dish, the Double Seafood Platter.
