Stayed for a couple of nights and the location was good for the strand. 10min walk to the ferry for magnetic Island. The room was fairly basic, tea/coffee and fridge. Wood laminate floor and a couple of rickety chairs. The shower was good, but it was clean and quiet. The wifi could not be connected from the room so had... More

Only stayed one night here but it was great value for money, our room was massive but very basic (not an issue though) and nearly dead centre to the esplanade which was so convenient. Would definitely stay again for a quick overnighter passing through.

Nice welcome from the owner, very helpful in finding taxis and checking in on our return flight. Newly refurbished and very comfortable apartments. Located within a stone's throw from the Strand, its beach and its restaurants, and not very far from the harbour/marina, Flinders Street and Palmer Street.

Great hotel currently undergoing upgrading. Stayed in a refurbished family room. Very clean, comfortable with everything you need. Walking distance to the Strand, restaurants, and the city. Short drive to the airport and plenty of taxis available just up the road. Have stayed at Yongala many times. It's good value for money and well located. The restaurant is currently closed... More

My Wife and I have traveled halfway round Australia and Yongala lodge has got to be the best accommodation we have experienced so far. Located on the Strand with access to restaurants, beach and close to the city. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with friendly and inviting service. The rooms are beyond expectation. Very comfortable, clean and... More

We booked due to our usual choices being booked out. The pics online looked nice & the prices were low so we gave it a try & booked a Family room. Staff were nice enough, pretty good room. Spacious and clean but dated & wasn't very happy being told on arrival that if I chose to use the top bunk... More

We have just had a night staying here. Location excellent - for The Strand and restaurants. Rooms are a bit dated, but for the price, everything was great. The couple looking after the Lodge were very helpful and friendly. It will be great to see the lodge when it's restored.

This place just reopened as a backpackers hostel. Since I was their first 'backpacker' checking in, they put me in a 2 room apartment for myself as a surprise! The staff is super friendly, actually the best I met so far during my travels in Australia! I felt at home right away and booked a third night. Location is excellent,... More

I had higher expectations. The rooms are dated but basically pretty clean. On the plus side, the room we had was roomy. Very close to the Strand which was nice. Price was good which should have been a clue to quality of accommodations. It was okay but not quite what I'd hoped for.
