We stayed in a double en-suite room. It was clean and tidy and very roomy. We were next to one of the kitchens and TV but heard no noise, from either which was a real plus. In fact it is a quiet location not far from the boats to Fraser Island and the whale watching. The only major drawback is... More

This is the first time we have came across a backpacker hostel that also provided space for camping - more places should do this! The campground was a good size, nice and level, plenty trees for shade, and wasn't too busy during our stay - we always managed to get the same spot if we left in our van during... More

We stayed here two nights to visit Fraser Island. The resort looks really nice, there are peacocks and other birds walking around, it is very green and the cantine area is nice as well. However, there is really nothing to do in or around the area. Also the room was quiet dirty, and the kitchen really small. The kitchen facilities... More

Enjoyed a relaxing stay here. Friendly staff, pleasant location and not too far to walk to shops. The cabin was clean and tidy and had everything we required. Good value for money. Would recommend to stay here.

I had looked around for some time on an affordable accomodation in Hervey Bay, the minute we were greeted so nicely by Tiffany and Karen, I knew we had made the right decision when choosing our little family holiday getaway. I was worried about amusing our little one if we stayed around the village, but even more worried about being... More

We stayed in one of the cabins and it was perfect. It had everything we could ask for including a split system A/C, kitchenette, nice hot shower, comfortable bed, nice patio and a covered carpark. The grounds and facilities are great for families. We spent the weekend with our 1 year old and the hosts at the Colonial Village 'Jeremy... More

An awesome Hostel! On arrival the very friendly Tiffany was more than helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. Great space, more than enough room for Caravans, campers and tents. The accomodation had plenty of room and was nice and clean. The pool and common area was a really nice place to relax or enjoy a game of... More

A friendly welcome from Tiffany and Karen. Lots of information available and staff keen to help sort out trips to places like Frazer Island. Our apartment was clean and well equipped. This place is close to a good shopping centre and the beach. We were directed to a fabulous beach front café which became a favourite during our stay. Loved... More

What a fantastic place! We were greeted by Karen who was extremely helpful and ensured we had everything we needed. Our room was very large, clean, with a TV & fridge, good en suite and verandah where you could enjoy morning coffee with the birds and surrounded by sub tropical plants. Great swimming pool that is lit up at night... More
