This modern and inviting resort is only a short easy walk to the ferry terminal and whale watching trips. We stayed for 2 nights in a 1bedroom suite that accommodated our needs well. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with full laundry and kitchen facilities. We found the staff helpful and friendly. Our only complaint was with the water pressure.... More

It was more than 3-hour drive from Gold Coast and we arrived at Ramada slightly past 7pm (not knowing that the reception closes at 7pm) and luckily the reception staff was still there to help us with the check-in. Everything went well. The resort is cosy, clean and comfortable. It was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed our 2-day stay.... More

We stayed here for one night only before going on to Fraser Island. This place is a little different from a regular hotel in that the front desk closes at 7 and they don't make the room up every day -- it's more of a guest house although it looks just like a hotel. We chose it because we got... More

We only had one night here but wished we had time to stay longer. The room - a one bedroom apartment was beautifully clean and had lovely fittings. We had planned on meeting family for dinner in the restaurant, but as it was fully booked, we ordered room service and sat around the dining table in our room. The food... More

Modern apartment style accommodation with good bed, full size fridge and hotplate but too few utensils. And no coffee maker. Inadequate bathroom lighting and the shower is in a bath that has spa jets. Front desk closes by 7. The breakfast included in the deal is variable and limited. In fact on Sunday it had half the choice of Saturday.... More

Stayed here with 3 different families at two different times in July 2012. Rooms were large and well laid out and very clean. Kids really enjoyed the pool (brrrr!) and the buffet breakfast had enough choice to please everyone.

I stayed here for a short two night trip to Hervey Bay and felt it was perhaps a little below par for high rating accommodation. I have stayed at a Ramada before (Goa, India) and in a direct comparison, it was not as good as my other Ramada experience. The room was clean, well appointed and had a microwave which... More

Dear Harvey W, Thank you for your feedback. At the hotel each of our suite has a spa. We do promote them as Spa baths only. Since you have stayed we have improved the presentationof the buffet which is just $15 per person. However we do have to appreciate that the cost of labour (along with penalty rates) means that...

My previous experience at a Ramada was 40+ years ago and I didn't expect much when we decided to stay here as I always thought this chain was average quality. We had no booking, were tired, and couldn't find a better option for a hotel. The hotel seemed quite new and our double room was fresh, clean & comfortable. I... More

This place is (in my opinion) as good as you can get in Hervey bay. It’s great for the business traveller though I have stayed her for leisure too. Rooms are massive, modern and have everything you need. Location close to the wharf so lots of places to wander and eat of have a drink. the pools not heated and... More

we only got to stay here one night and we arrived very late and left early so my review is limited. However, the room was very clean and spacious and the bathroom also. This was a welcome relief after we had spent 3 nights in another horrible place in hervey bay. we tried to use the internet on arrival and... More
