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.

Stayed one night on the way back from diving the yongala. It was decent, the furnishing is really old, everything is sort of outdated like it hasnt been updated since it was built. But overall, clean and well priced. We stayed there because it's close to the strand. Front desk was nice. I would stay here again for the convenience... More
