If there is a small group of you this is much better value than staying in a hostel. The member of staff on reception (Cathy) gave us a lovely warm welcome when we first arrived which was great. The room was spacious, clean, air conditioned and had complimentary tea and coffee. This was a lovely change for us from the... More

This motel served us extremely well for one night before a boat trip, and was excellent value for money. Not only that, but we were a couple and only used one of the THREE beds in the room. If you were a family it would be exceptionally good value. The owner was extremely friendly and welcoming to us and we... More

My friend and I stayed at Whitsunday on the Beach for 4 nights. We had not planned an accommodation before arriving in Airlie Beach but knew we wanted to be in the heart of Airlie Beach. Whitsunday on the Beach was the first place we stopped in and they were able to give us a good price that fit our... More

I was pleasantly Surprised at the quality of service , cleanliness , position and overall room presentation.There is a perception that Airlie Beach/Whitsundays are too dear. Not the Case.Have a look around there is great... More

Reception staff friendly, well organised and obliging. Rooms while not flash were comfortable and clean, on the better side of average. Location was excellent - in centre of Airlie, off-street parking and the back gate opened onto the lagoon water park. Security was good. We shall go back to this accommodation for next year's music festival.

This cost effective, centrally located, family friendly accommodation is definitely worth staying at. Our room located on the ground floor over looked the gorgeous Airlie lagoon, which meant that we were able to watch our teenagers swim. The accommodation was clean and simple. The property is centrally located which meant we didn't need to use the car as shops and... More
