Booked this based on trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Large clean room with very comfortable king bed and lots of little extras that you don't normally see in a motel room! We were on a brief stopover and had had a long drive so the adjoining restaurant appealed to us. Our meals were amazing! Didn't expect to... More

We recently stayed at Harbour Sails for work. The rooms were large, spotless and very comfortable. Staff at the hotel were extremely helpful with everything and also recommended the onsite restaurant. AMAZING food – the chef does everything himself and everything is made from scratch by him. An excellent experience! I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something... More

A pleasant pool area and a small restaurant on the property. A good location where you can easily get to the shopping and restaurant strip. A worthwhile... More

We chose Harbour Sails for a one night stay en route to Heron Island and were pleased with our selection. The motel management were welcoming and checked us straight into a comfortable and clean room located in the Main Street of Gladstone within a ten ten minute walk to the Heron Island ferry terminal. We appreciated the free wi fi,... More

Motels don't come much better than this. We opened the door to our room and all I wanted to do is lie on the bed! Very welcoming, beds were super comfortable, nice complementary toiletries. Good breakfast, great rate and most of all, great service. These people know what they are doing. Asked for a quiet room - got it; restaurant... More

New management has improved the rooms and restaurant very nicely. All staff provide warm and friendly atmosphere (unlike previous review). Will definitely stay again - business or pleasure - week day or weekend.
