Neat and tidy remake of an old standby. Clean rooms, good sheets and towels, sparkling little pool. Location A1 on the Strand. Even so, quiet and tucked away. No pretensions, but all done very well. Having had a very average dining experience elsewhere, the sooner the owners re-open the restaurant on the verandahs of the old lodge the better for... More

This place looks great from the outside being a lovely timber building well over 100 years old. Great welcome from the hosts who are super friendly. The accommodation at the back is very standard motel look from the outside, but don't let that fool you. The place is awesome inside and has been redecorated to the highest standard, sparkling white... More

We spent 2 nights at Yongala Lodge last week. The friendly cheerful manner of the Manager was just what we needed after a delayed flight and having arrived later than planned. Our room was spotless and recently refurbished. Just located off The Strand with plenty of off-street parking.

Wonderfully located with a husband/wife management team that must be the best in Queensland. We had a top floor room that was immaculate. Basic - but extremely well laid out and absolutely spotless. The grounds of the lodge were amazingly well kept and the overnight 'silence' was very much appreciated. The Lodge is only a very short walk to the... More

Nice, clean refurbished room. Stayed for 2 nights over Anzac weekend. Quiet. We we'rnt bothered by any revellers. Walking distance to beach & eateries. Reasonably priced. Manager was friendly. They have a restaurant, but we didn't eat at it this time. Will definitely stay again.

Staff and owners are very accommodating. The rooms are spacious and clean. The two room accommodation is a great place for families to stay, everything supplied to make you self sufficient. It is walking distance to supermarkets, shops, restaurants and is only a few metres to The Strand and the free water park. Wi Fi is available but only in... More

Lovely hotel right by the Strand with its own little pool. The owners were very friendly and helpful. This is a lovely building with a lot of original features and artefacts from the Yongala. The rooms were large and and there's a laundry on site.

We stayed one night in a one bedroom fully refurbished apartment. Big, clean and spacious. It was the new managers second day but they were still knowledgeable and helpful. Restaurant was closed for a refurb but this was not a problem. Great quiet but central location.

I actually wanted to review on booking.com , but because that site listed me as a No Show, I can't (more on that later...). Yongala is a nice, quiet, unpretentious place where everything works, and it's not outrageously expensive. It has only just changed ownership in the last week and the new owners, while still feeling their way, are eager... More
