We stayed at this lovely motel at Hervey Bay before going to Fraser Island and after our Fraser Island tour, so we spent here 2 nights in total. The owners were so extremely nice, that when we arrived late, just before 9pm, they still waited on us to welcome us (although they were up from 5am that day!) We were... More

We had to spend a night in Hervey Bay on our way to Fraser Island. We chose this hotel as it was walking distance from the greyhound coach stop from Brisbane and we did not do it wrong. The motel has been recently refurbished and has new toilets with a very good shower. It is a good walk to the... More

We have stayed several times and could not be happier. Mary and Robert are with out a doubt the best hosts we have ever experienced. Rooms are super clean, modern and comfortable. We will stay here again without hesitation and would recommend this accommodation to anybody. To Mary and Robert......thank you. Graeme and Margaret F.

I stay here regularly. Mary and Rob are just the nicest of people and so very accommodating. Nothing seems too much trouble for them. Rooms are always extremely clean and very well appointed. Close to everything in Hervey Bay and walk to the beach and the shopping centres. Breakfast is included - not a full cooked one of course, but... More

Well appointed, great value. Great little extras like provision of bucket and sponge to clean your car windscreen, who would have thought this level of service is still available. I was really impressed that a simple but sensible continental breakfast is provided. Not to be out done the jams provided are home made and local.

We stayed at the Main Street Motel for two nights and used this as a base for our Fraser Island tour. Mary was lovely and very helpful with local information. The rooms were big, clean and looked like they had been updated recently. The shower was excellent. The kitchen area was nice and so was the continental breakfast! Location wise... More

Mary and Rob are the nicest motel owners I've met. We were made to feel at home from the minute we checked in. They were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Mary even gave us some of her delicious homemade hot cross buns! Mary's homemade jams in the continental breakfast packs were also lovely. The rooms were spacious,... More
