We LOVED this place, mostly because we were in a studio on the top floor with the most wonderful views over the marina, and having walked down to Airlie Beach were relieved we had chosen such a quiet little haven away from the droves downtown. It was probably our favourite stay on a roadtrip all around Queensland. It is a... More

We had a room by the pool. Any noise from guests or cleaning staff certainly carried through to the room. Overall, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Shingley beach Resort! Staff were very helpful and the bakery on the first level served an amazing Breakfast.

I would rate this hotel as good to average but wanted the review to be read to be fair to anyone considering staying here. There is a dive school operating on the ground floor. Which wake you up around 6 or 7am. On the ground floor room 17 was adjoined to another.and you will hear any noise they make. The... More

Thank you for giving us feedback. We are sorry you found the location of your room noisy. When you informed us, we immediately contacted the dive school to ask them to keep the noise down in the mornings. As the dive school is moving location out of the resort very shortly, this will no longer be an issue. Our website... More

Our family of four have stayed at Shingley beach Resort a number of times and have always found it lovely. The staff are very accommodating and the units are excellent value for money. A lovely quiet location with Airlie Beach only a short, scenic walk away via the excellent boardwalk. The views over the marina to the magic Whitsunday Islands... More

Very good value for money, amazing view, nice pool and very helpful and laid back hosts. The only reason it's not getting a 5 star is that - since recently - the airport and the Whitsunday cruise boats no longer leave from the harbour that's right next to Shingley. Nevertheless, you can get to the other port on a 20... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are pleased you found your stay enjoyable. We are in a nice quiet location yet close enough to walk to Airlie Beach main street. There are still some tours operating from Abell Point Marina and most tour operators located at the other marina offer courtesy transfers to and from... More

My sister had her wedding here and most of us were there for the week. Shingley put on an amazing reception and the beach out the front was for the Ceremony, Thanks to Shingley everything ran smoothly for the bride and the rooms were nice, spacious and tidy.

All in all, I expected a little more but then realised I only paid $150/night. It has all the basics one needs including a reasonable kitchen. My only gripe was the possibility of a $35 cleaning charge if I neglected to empty my bins before leaving and let's face it, not much of a mess would be made after a... More

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests and strive to improve our service whilst keeping our accommodation affordable. We do remind our guests of the common courtesy of removing all rubbish and dishes before vacating - with a sign notifying of a charge if they do not. We find that this helps stress the importance...

We have stayed there, on numerous occasions over the last 9 years. The view is the best, it is quiet, the units are comfortable and the choice of pools great.

Great location. We had a magnificent view over the whitsundays. A loverly walk along the marina and beach into town. The rooms were a little dated but clean and tidy. The rooms contained everything you would need for an extended holiday. I woulod stay again and recommend to my friends.
