Good location and closed to a Shopping Mall. On-Site manager was very helpful and had a good area knowledge. Its a good accommodation option if you are on tight budget and want something close to all the basic amenities.

First, it is important to know what Hervey Bay is mostly about: a gateway to Fraser Island. Hervey Bay itself is a small town with an unimpressive beach (by Australian standards). Nothing wrong with staying there before moving on the the island, or using it for a day trip to the island (HIGHLY recommended). The Comfort Inn is on Main... More

After traveling from Cairns to Brisbane, our third stop was this motel, a two night respite. The motel was dirty, the air conditioner overly noisy, and the shower weak. But worse of all, after returning from a full day tour of Fraser Island, the room was untouched. Dirty coffee cups, no beds made, towels arranged or straightened, wastebaskets emptied, absolutely...

Good morning Motorrader, Firstly I would like to thank you for your review on Trip Advisor as I am very familiar with the conversation that I had with your wife. Your wife came to see me after a long day on Fraser Island and I understand that she was feeling tired which may have explained her temperament at the time.... More

Stayed in room 2. Very spacious room and bathroom that were clean and well maintained. The price was quite reasonable. Central location. Reception guy friendly and helpful. Nothing at all to fault with this place at all.

Excellent property in the heart of Hervey Bay, Craig, Ruby and his team have done an excellent job with this property, clean and very friendly staff. Craig having lived in the area for some time has lots of local knowledge not just about Hervey Bay but also Fraser Island. The resturant 'Frasers on Main" has a different buffet each night... More

Basic cheap hotel room with paper thin walls, could practically hear conversations in the room next to us. Rooms were a good size with private bathroom. On the plus side we were able to park our car here free of charge while we did the Fraser Island tour for 2 nights. Staff very friendly.

Have stayed at the Fraser Gateway a few times over the years. It keeps changing owners/managers over the years and the service has always been pretty average. The recent closing of the restaurant tips the balance of not staying there again. It's clean enough but that;s about it.

Please accept our apologies for the Restaurant (Room Service) being closed on the night you stayed due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. We would hope that on your next visit to Hervey Bay you may re-consider staying at the Comfort Inn Fraser Gateway. More

Hervey Bay is a sleepy sea side town populated mostly with retirees and pensioners. This motel caters for that demographic along with business travellers. Management are friendly enough and provided early check in at 10:30am (with some reluctance.) The bulky key is somewhat annoying and be prepared to be outright rejected when asking to leave at reception. The lady said... More

We booked a room with this motel only one day in advance to escape a horrible hostel we were staying at in Rainbow Beach and found it to be a great choice. We were so happy to get a nice, spacious, clean and reasonably priced room. The decor is a bit outdated but we didn't attach any importance to that... More
