We have stayed here a couple of times now and just love it! Great location, size and friendly staff. Our son loves the pool and the fact can cross the road to the water. Only minutes away from entertainment, eating venues, shopping..you name it! We will be back again soon !

We recently stayed here for 6 nights in a ground floor 1 B/R unit with the loveliest views straight across from us - it was very relaxing just sitting watching the water (if we didn't feel very energetic). Easy walking distance to cafes/restaurants and a little further to the shops makes this an ideal place for a holiday/short break -... More

Recently spent 4 nights here in a 2 brm unit on ground floor. Fabulous position, easy access to the unit which was spacious with great view to the beach across the road. Easy walking distance to cafes/restaurants. Swimming pool is a good size and partly covered. The lift to upper floors from basement along with the luggage trolleys is most... More

Very clean and spacious apartments right across the road from the beach. Main lounge and bedroom are air-conditioned. Restaurants within walking distance. Swimming pool and tennis courts here also. Underground car parking. Just a good place to stay.

We recently stayed at Shelly Bay Resort for two weeks. We chose it after reading all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and the fact they we were guaranteed to get a view of the bay. Also, the price was very reasonable considering that the first week of our stay was in school holiday time. The main reasons for our stay... More

We had a very pleasant single night stay at the Shelly Bay Resort. The person at reception, Lisa, was really welcoming and helpful and the room was clean and large. The Resort is very centrally located and we really enjoyed our stay.

The stay did not start off well - I'm guessing the raining day didn't help much ... we were unable to get to the room without getting wet, then it was reading through the list of rules. None of the curtains in the rooms or the side could be opened without a lovely view of the apartments next door having... More

We have stayed at Shelly Bay Resort a number of times and would not consider staying anywhere else when in Hervey Bay. Friendly staff who remember who we are and make sure we have a great stay. The restaurant on ground floor is very convenient and you can easily walk to many others. An afternoon and morning stroll on the... More

Favourite place to stay in Hervey Bay. Opposite the beach. Beach safe for children, great family stay, with pool, tennis court and bbq area, not too far from everything Hervey Bay has to offer. Units are great, roomy and clean. Verandahs to view the beach from. Also come September to November is Whale Watching season for those interested in getting... More

We stayed in a 2bedroom overlooking the esplanade and water. There is an Indian restaurant downstairs and a couple of bars you can walk too. The room was tidy and clean, very spacious, full kitchen, laundry, very comfy beds and the lady on reception was lovely.
