We booked a room and airport transfer after returning from Heron Island. Booking online and email communication was easy, the staff friendly and helpful, the communal areas and our room were clean and comfortable. The owners have put thought into providing little extras to make this a more like a home away from home. Was a great spot to relax... More

We arrived here for one night. The room was quite expensive - we payed for a double with shared facilities and it was $70 I think. There are 2 showers and 3 toilets between the rooms. The room was clean - minimally furnished but there was use of a kitchen and deck area. It was a pleasant enough stay. There... More

This backpackers was a good find. After 9.5 hours driving needed a place to stay the night in Gladstone (wasn't originally planning to stay here as not too much to do). Came across road signs to backpackers and found it reasonably easily. House is fresh and airy and nicely laid out. Weren't there for long so didn't use kitchen/pool/lounge facilities.... More
