Free wifi in the reception and restaurant. Bathroom facilites looked quite old but were clean and worked. Really cheap and good food in the restaurant. Outside there's a lake with ducks and other birds, really beautiful. Our double room was quite small and there was not much space for the luggage but it was clean. There's a free shuttle service...

I've stayed four nights in a double bedroom with en suite. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The room is lovely, complete with a lounge, bathroom, TV and a deck. There are large garden areas, plus a pool and spa outside the bar.Staff have been very helpful. Meals are available at very reasonable prices, and they are yummy! If you are... More

We stayed here for three nights in August 2014, the first night in a double room with shared bath, the other two we upgraded to a double room with ensuite bathroom. The room with shared bath is extremely tiny, there's literally only one bed in the room and not much space for anything else. Since there is no heating it... More

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

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
