Rob and Alan were responsive and friendly. The motel was clean and comfortable. The pool is nice but shady and cold, but when it is very hot, is probably refreshing. There is a nice and well tended and loved garden, with wonderful blooming smells and some amusing birds. There is a basic fridge, microwave and toaster. Our upgraded room was... More

First port of call is the reception where Rob will greet you like an old friend. We stay there every time we go to Hervey Bay. We used one of the disabled suites and they have a very well designed bathroom for people who use wheelchairs. The rooms open up at the back to a beautiful garden with lush trees... More

Hi Carol, Thanks heaps for the great review. We have some of the only specifically designed and "built to spec" wheelchair accessible rooms in Hervey Bay. The option of an interconnecting Deluxe Suite adds flexibility for carers or family members. We have won numerous awards for our accessibility, including a Community Champion Award from the Spinal injuries Association! I am... More

We've recently returned from a great stay at Emeraldene Inn & Eco-Lodge. The accommodation was comfortable and had everything we needed. Rob, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and put together a fantastic package of experiences based on our needs. Would love to stay there again!

The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was gorgeously hot and generous. We were welcomed by a lovely man at the front desk who was happy to offer shopping, dining and sightseeing recommendations which were all spot on, as were the driving directions we were given. The motel is quiet and peaceful. The gardens... More

Hi justcarols, Thanks for your review and kind appraisals. I am really pleased you enjoyed our Superior Suites and quiet garden setting! The Superior Suites are our best rooms, and are excellent value as only a few dollars more than the Deluxe Suites for a 3 night stay. We do hope you get the opportunity to visit the region again,...

My partner and I were lucky enough to stay here for 7 nights after a last minute booking! The owner Rob was friendly and very accommodating. The room was huge, bed comfy and apartment was cleaned on a daily basis. Couldn't have been happier. Will definitely stay again when in Hervey Bay.
