A planned trip to Brisbane was changed (not by us) to Hervey Bay. We looked up Tripadvisor to find a cost effective yet clean and roomy place to stay for two nights. The reviews of Emeraldene seemed to suit us so we called to make a booking. As with all of the other reviews, Rob was helpful from the start. The price suited our limited budget so we booked. On arrival, the grounds are fantastic, the rooms some of the cleanest we have stayed in and roomy for the three of us. It had everything you could need, we only wish we had more time to be able to use the BBQ area which looked fantastic.
This hotel is well located but not on the beach if you want a view, but not sure that view is worth three times the price. The rooms are spacious and have verandahs overlooking the lush gardens and Rob has all the knowledge you could want - 4wd hire, whale watching and restaurants. On our way driving back to Brisbane, we were stopping at Rainbow Beach and Rob even had some fantastic advice on a beautiful sight there, but you will have to stay with Rob to find at what it is - highly recommended and put on the bucket list so we could tick it off!!!!
We will stay again and we cannot recommend it more highly. It has everything you need, is well located and Rob is the biggest bonus of this place (and the dog, which my daughter would have loved to take with us). We would prefer the lush gardens at night and then spend the days on the many beach spots in the area. Save your moneyfor the many experiences in the area.
