What a lovely place this is. The owners are extremley friendly and helpful. The accomadation is great, clean modern and spacious. Excellent value for money. Local restaurants only a few minutes away with plenty of choice. Beach front is a few minutes walk with lovely beaches. Great place to stay for fraser island and lady elliot island.

Great place to stay - Peter made us very welcome and as well as booking trips suggested places we could go which weren't necessarily on the tourist list. Children loved the pool and it was near the beach which has bbq and picnic tables so fun for a family visit.

Very comfortable, clean and family friendly accommodation close to the beach and Torquay esplanade. The owner/managers couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and had helpful knowledge regarding local attractions Outstanding service at a great price!

Flexibility about arriving very late. Great new rooms which were spotless. These seem like they were recently renovated. Great location not far from esplanade and shops. Free wifi. A pool which we didn't get to use. Thoughtful and friendly staff. Will definitely stay again if in Hervey Bay.

Almost at end of our month in Australia, our final destination at Hervey Bay, at the Colonial Lodge was a welcome experience. Our unit was spotless and very well equipped. The bathroom, brand new was perfect as was the whole unit. Perfectly placed to explore Hervey, and to book our trip to Frazer island. Our hostess was extremely helpful. With... More

This was like a home away from home. Was everything we needed and more. Great value. Lovely people that run the lodge that help you whenever they can. Apartments are great. They have a fully stocked kitchen, with stove, fridge, microwave, toaster etc. Lovely 4 seat table, nice big TV. Fresh clean feel. The rooms are situated around the pool... More

Best value, lovely accommodation, great location, very pleasant owner. All adds up to a great stay. The unit was very well maintained and the bathroom looked new. Separate bedroom from tje lounge was a nice surprise! Pool was a lovely bonus. It's location is just a very short walk to the beach. I can easily say it's the best accommodation... More

The room was clean and comfortable. It had a full size fridge and upright stove with a clean and usable BBQ just behind the room, with your own BBQ utensils. The managers were very helpful both in person and over the phone. They supplied lots of information about Hervey Bay with regard to where to eat and what attractions to... More

Very friendly staff who went out of their way to help. Gave a detailed introduction to the town, local attractions and the various tours of Fraser Island. When my taxi didn't arrive they very kindly just dropped me off at the airport. Nice, self-contained rooms with everything you'd need to cook. One block from an incredible beach. A few restaurants...

Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Close to restaurants, shops and only 50 metres from beach. Although so close to everything, being in the "next" street the rooms are very quiet of a night. Owners are very friendly and helpful. The only downside from my point of view is that the units are only serviced weekly and if after a... More

Peter L, Manager at Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge, responded to this review

We are 3 & 1/2 Star AAAT rated self contained holiday units serviced weekly, most booking sites such as booking.com state this clearly when booking. We try to get the word out to everyone as much as possible, but unfortunately we have no say in the content published on tripadvisor, we have made many requests for change to clarify this... More
