“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

The owners were charming and extremely helpful. They followed up to be sure our whale watching trip was what we expected... and it was. Our one bedroom unit was large, clean and comfortable. The kitchen had all the supplies, dishes etc that we needed.... including salt and pepper. We did laundry and set it out on the outdoor drying racks provided....wonderful! And the free wifi was very quick.

Our family of three adults stayed here in a 2 bedroom unit quite recently and we just loved it. There is more than ample space and the decor is very modern with the bathrooms all being recently renovated. We found it very quiet and peaceful which is greatly appreciated after a long day's travelling and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back here when we take our next break at Hervey Bay. We could not have been more happier with this accommodation and would certainly recommend it as a place to stay.

A quiet location close to the sea. Spacious modern unit with full working kitchen and heating/cooling. A very friendly and helpful manager who arranged our tours late at night after we interrupted his family dinner. A truly great host who really wanted us to have a great experience. Next time we will stay longer and experience all this area has to offer.

We stayed at Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge for 2 nights in March, we got a one bedroom unit, initially we only booked for one night but when we wanted to make it two the hosts were very helpful and even charged us the cheaper rate (when you book 2 nights). The units had been recently renovated and were very spacious and comfortable, it had a full size lounge with two recliners, a full fridge and oven. The bathroom was really nice and new. The bedroom is separate and the bed was comfortable. It even has a new flat screen television. I was very impressed with the room for the price. It is one street back from the Esplanade within walking distance to restaurants and the beach. They have a nice pool and you can sit outside your unit with a small table & chairs where a lovely breeze flows through. The hosts are really nice, always helpful and friendly. You will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the units for the price, a good deal, highly recommend.

Room Tip: The only thing I could recommend is the end units have their own driveway, and all the units have be...

Stayed for 3 weeks while I was looking for permanent accommodation. Working owners were extremely helpful and very hospitable. Great facilities and lovely spacious rooms. Not too far from the beach & esplanade. Beds are very comfortable (I'm quite fussy). We would definitely recommend staying here.
