We stayed at Boat harbour for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We did not have a car as we were travelling on a tour but the resort is only 10-15 mins to the marina with plenty of restaurants. Our room was very clean, comfortable with good facilities. The room itself is a good size, with a kitchen, hob,... More

We stayed in Boat Harbour Resort in Feb 2007. The rooms were spacious but the service at reception was a little frosty (not sure why??!!) We were also asked to pay money upfront before check in. Upon departure day we were asked to vacate the room (literally 15 mins) after check out time at 10am. Even though they admitted they... More

Auzkiwi, Owner Managers at Boat Harbour Resort, responded to this review

We feel very upset with this persons review, particually when we know that we are not expensive considering what we offer our guests and this is born out by the other reviews written on this site and many others. We also as a husband & wife team take great care in making sure our guests are well looked after &... More

We booked a 2 bedroom villa for 4 of us & were quoted $300 for the stay. We arrived in Hervey Bay after an overnight bus from Airlie Beach. We got a taxi from the... More

We had a short, one night stay here in early November. Good location if you are getting the boat to Fraser Island, the marina is about 5 minutes walk. We had a very large room which was clean and tidy. Good sized bed and more than adequate facilities. Air-conditioning was hugely appreciated. We were only here a few hours but... More

in hervey(pronounced:"harvey")bay the tourist is the holy grail-maybe its because the town/city of 50,000 is totally uninteresting unless you use it as a departure point for fraser island(worlds largest sand island) or close encounters with whales during the months of august thru october.overnight accomodation thus becomes critical and the modern apartments provided by boat harbour resort are well situated to...
