I stayed here for one night in April and checked in really late after a Fraser Island trip but staff had left good instructions and it was fine. The room was nice, spacious and clean and had lockable storage which is a bonus. Nice patio doors to the garden area too. The grounds are lovely and well kept and I... More

Friendly staff who were very helpful. The motel is situated just around the corner from The Esplanade on a quiet street, but within walking distance of the main street. Our room was lovely and clean and well equipped with everything we needed. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here

The shower ran out of water after one short shower and then half way through the next. The wifi was free but really slow, so we gave up after a while. Convenient key drop for our... More

Another excellent place to stay thanks to checking out Trip Advisor. My friend and I stayed the night and the lovely helpful managers gave us a unit with two bedrooms even though I was expecting us to share one room. I agree with all the positive reviews written for the Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge and would not hesitate to add... More

For the price you really cant go wrong and the staff were excellent. Being on a motorbike they provided under cover parking which is always appreciated. Nice stroll west along the water front brings you to shops and restuarnts, walking to the east a nice long pier worth the look. Convenience store less than a block away.Great value self contained...

I highly recommended the Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge as a place to stay when your in the Hervey Bay area. My Family and I found the managers to be very friendly, helpful and caring. The unit was spotlessly clean and modern. It has a fully self contained kitchen, with a M.W.O. and gas cook-top and oven. The bedrooms are large... More

We stayed here last year in January and only just got around to giving this small friendly motel the review it deserves. The motel is not very big but it has a nice garden area and pool just outside your door. The apartments are very clean and are set around the pool making it very convenient, they are a nice... More

We stayed here for one night either side of a trip to Fraser Island. The apartments are great- clean and well equipped and in a good location. The staff are friendly and really helpful. The esplanade and beach are just around the corner- some good restaurants but good to note that they are not open a Monday. Excellent place to... More
