“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2015

Last minute booking found us this great little find. Amazing room, pool, service and location. It was quite, close to the boat harbour and restaurants, had a great beach location across the road and owners were lovely. Very happy we found it and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Room 1 right next to the pool was great!

What can one expect for $110 a night? A basic room, with a small bathroom and no view. But the room was very clean and tidy and the location was generally very quiet (apart from a cane toad that croaked occasionally) ... but too isolated for me.

Personally, I think you need a car if you are going to stay here. It's a little further to the Marina then it looks on a map, as the Hervey Bay Boat Club and other shops etc are at the northern (far) end, so it's a 1km walk, and there is no footpath / trail and it's very taxing in the heat and humidity.

Hubby & I spent 10 days in bungalow 1. It has a very well equipped kitchen if you wish to make meals. (I didn't) The Boat Club is close by and a couple of pubs also. We found it quiet which is what we liked. Friendly host helped with confusing tv channels. (We don't have foxtel at home).
Cost is comparable for what you get. Air-conditioning worked very well in lounge & master bedroom. Nice pool also electric bbq not far across the road. Overall it was a very pleasant stay, we will return. :)

Room Tip: Not sure about wifi, we had our own.

Great location and value but don't expect waterfront or fancy. Friendly staff and easy to get to. Look for the hervey bay seafood festival and make the trip while combining with a day trip to Frasier Island(rent a ute!)

Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip. Booked online through Wotif. Proprietors accommodated my late check-in requirements by allowing me to pick up the key early in the day. Room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. However, the TV was mounted on the wall above the bed so you could not lie in bed and watch TV and there was only 1 comfortable chair (not a problem for a single traveller, but would be for a couple or more). I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are subject to occupant noise from upper floor rooms.

We have just stayed for a week in a family villa. It had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful in advising activities. It was about 200 metres from the boat marina and the Boat Club which made it an easy walk. The beach with calmer water across the road was great for smaller kids. There is grass areas for kids to run around on and a lovely pool. A paper delivery each morning was a nice touch.

We spent two nights here before and after our Whale Catching trip. The room was small but comfortable for a couple, the only problem was the bed sagged on one side from a missing castor. Hopefully this has been fixed after we reported it.
