“A Very Relaxing and Peaceful Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

What can I say? From the time my husband and I arrived we were absolutely blown away by the spaciousness of this apartment. We booked a 3 bedroom locked down to two to get a view of the bay and we found it to be quite satisfactory as there were also other lovely views of the garden and pool. We found Robert to be very helpful and accommodating and easy to talk to, The apartment was in a excellent position where you don't get the hot sun on the balcony all day and made for a pleasant meal outside watching the world go by. The apartment was very clean and tidy and had a very pleasant smell, It satisfied our needs completely and there is a great seafood shop ( Madigans) which we frequented every night and the friendly staff there got to know us. The Ice Creamery next door was a vision to behold. All the different flavours of ice cream- I couldn't make up my mind which one to have , but settled on the pineapple and banana flavours. Yum! We were greeted every day by some friendly birds on our balcony and at dusk thousands of lorikeets congregated in the trees opposite the apartment.There were so many things to do but our stay was too short. If you are feeling energetic the walk along the boardwalk to Urangan is a must. Will definitely be back next year.

Room Tip: Rooms 129 and 130 are the best rooms for views and are also very quiet, These are 3 bedroom apartmen...

We had booked a water view 1 bedroomed apartment with balcony. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor but only had partial views of the water. When we spoke to reception and the manager about this he said we had water views and that was that. He barely gave us the time of day for the rest of our trip. The location of the apartments are great but they are a little grubby and out-dated.

Room Tip: There are much nicer apartments on the same street. Go somewhere else!!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights late October. Asked Rob for a nice room and he gave us his best room on the top floor at a cost of $195 per night, which when you see the size of the apartment, you understand how reasonable this is. Central location, convenient to beach, shops and restaurants. Compared to other comparable accommodations on the Esplanade, why would you stay anywhere else.

As someone who works in the travel industry I am difficult to please. But White Crest Luxury Apts did a very good job at providing a wonderful family weekend away.
The decor is a little 80's but as each apartment is individually owned that is how it goes sometimes.
The staff were fabulous, ready and waiting for us to arrive even when it was a little late in the evening and the room was immaculately clean. They are more than happy to answer any questions about local products and services and book your day trips and tours for you.
Once there we were able to enjoy all there is to offer for families in Hervey Bay without having to drive anywhere.. There are so many places for children of all ages to play within walking/cycling or scootering distance playgrounds, water park & skate park not to mention the beach across the road. We were able to find wonderful places to eat right at the front door or within a short walking distance that even a 4yr old managed without complaint.

We will be going back to stay and enjoy more family fun in Hervey Bay.

What an excellent place to stay, this was our second stay there in 5 years. We chose the place as it was handy to the beach and the shops down the Esplanade. The 3 bedroom apartment was very spacious for my family of 5 adults and 2 grandsons. The pool was very handy on the hot days we were there and the kids were in there every day we were there. Robert and his staff were very helpful with our needs and answers to our questions were great.

Room Tip: Get in early

As an ex resident of Hervey Bay I chose White Crest because of the central location. What a great choice! The units are perfectly located opposite Torquay beach and excellent eateries, pub & shops are all within an easy 5 minute walk (the best fish & chips are right next door!) The pool is perfect for children & adults alike and is a very comfortable temperature, even when the bay is a little on the chilly side! Our 2 bedroom unit was very clean, spacious & well appointed (ours had 3 TV's) with all the mod-cons. I was particularly impressed with the very comfy bed(s) and especially the lovely lounge! Rob Cheek, the manager, was very friendly and extremely helpful in booking our Whale Watching & Fraser Island tours. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - 1 week was definitely not long enough - & now that we are home we are already planning our next trip - to White Crest of course!

Room Tip: Only top floor (4) has a good view of the bay due to the trees along the esplanade

I first started staying at White Crest when I was a teenager and 20 years later I am still happy to holiday with them. The apartments are well-kept and ideally located for a relaxing holiday. Some aspects of the accommodation need some revamping and modernising but this can depend on which apartment you book as to what those individual owners have done to make their unit attractive to holiday makers.

Room Tip: Advertising may state "ocean/water views" but you need to clarify this when you book (if t...
