I would like to give the hotel five stars as we really enjoyed a recent stay at the hotel. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and exceptionally well kept by the hotel staff who attend to every detail. Yes there is a pool and the hotel is in a great location for restaurants, bars, buses and... More

We've been staying 2 nights around our Whitsunday Islands trip. Spacious room with a very good bed, fantastic shower and good facilities - free WiFi included. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had one delicious dinner at the attached Cactus Jack Restaurant ... Very fresh tasting Mexican food at it's best!

Our two-night stay was spent around a trip to the Great Barrier Reef; chosen due to its good location. We went at the tail-end of Spring, so to say the hotel was a little dead would be an understatement. The pool area makes it seem like it would be a great spot in the heat of the summer months. The...

We spent two nights at the Airlie Beach Hotel prior to a tour of the Whitsundays. Location is superb, right in the middle of everything, we hardly touched the car once we got there. Great view from the front, proximity to food outlets and shops is prime. Also close to Port of Airlie, bus stops etc. Our room was great... More

Basic motel room. Centrally located in Airlie Beach. Great size bed and clean room . Friendy staff. Would stay again but try the hotel rooms with ocean view. It was school holiday time so rates were maybe at that rate.

It actually is right on the beach front so as long as you have an 'ocean view' room, you will have a great view of the sea and the lively esplanade below. Room was very clean and tidy and comfortable.

We looked at lots of accommodation in Airlie Beach but not having a car precluded a lot of the properties on the hillside as it was very steep, (although stunning views!). We decided on the Airlie Beach hotel as it is situated right on the esplanade and their ocean view rooms do indeed look directly onto the beach and along... More

We stayed recently, a good deal if you stay 3 nights or more. good rooms, we had a room with a view over the beach. Top parking and friendly staff. A short walk to the ferry terminal makes travel easy. Recommend this place

Firstly, the hotel has a great location and 3 restaurants on site is very handy too. I found the bed to be very comfortable and I really enjoyed the free tea/coffee and biscuits as an amenity in room. Tait at the reception was really great, thank you!! Free wifi is a plus too. The only thing I disliked was that... More
