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

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

Wonderful helpful hosts and a beautifully presented unit. Excellent location relatively close to everything you might need and within walking distance of lots. Will definitely be back. Would be a great location at any time of the year.

We stayed in a double room. Room was spacious, clean and well presented. Couldn't fault it at all. The room had a veranda which was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar on site was great, meals were tasty and good value for money. The self-catering kitchen was well stocked, with enough space to prepare meals.... More

Thank you for the review, this is definitely not our business"Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge", although can sound similar except we do not have a bar or bistro, we were established in 1974, and unfortunately there is a Backpacker facility with a similar name "Colonial Village YHA Backpackers" it is handy for customers to be aware not to get the address...

As a previous reviewer has stated this is not a 5 star resort. It is a little dated but is clean and comfortable. There is a kitchen if you choose to self-cater. It can be a challenge keeping the bedroom cool with the air-conditioner being in the living area, but using the ceiling fans to move the cool air about... More

don't get me wrong, this is not a 5 star resort, but excellent motel style accommodation. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment as 2 adult couples. On arrival we were shown to our room by the hosts, who were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and tidy with full size fridge, gas stove, microwave and even salt... More

The whole of the complex was well set out, clean and tidy. The car parking was off road in a residential area with a short walk to the beach. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very clean and had all the necessary facilities and there was a laundry for guests to use. We found the owners helpful and... More
