“Friendly staff and great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We found that the bar was a great location to meet people, the staff were very friendly and it was very central, near the lagoon.

“Filling but not fulfilling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

Located in pub surroundings next to pool tables and clubs this restaurant caters for back packers galore. Filling the food may be, but not necessarily fulfilling.

“Loved it so much I have been there 5 times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Airlie Beach is the place for some R&R for us North Queenslanders too. And Magnums is the place to stay. It is central to everything as it is located in the main street. It has a tour desk that can organise anything for you - I have done 2 sailing trips, a helicopter ride to Whitehaven Beach and even booked onwards accommodation thru them. The bar is a fun place to be, and the couple of times I have been alone, I haven't been scared to head down there. You met nice people, both locals and travellers, and can enjoy a nice drink and good value meal.
I book a double room which gives me privacy. You can sit outside your room and enjoy feeling like you are in the bush rather than in the middle of a busy town. And still I get to meet other people staying there and enjoy some lovely conversations about what other people have done that day.
I highly recommend Magnums as the all round place to stay and hang out when in Airlie Beach - and it won't break the bank.

“Local drinking hole”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Good for a few drinks! Always busy. Enjoyed the live music, good place to watch people. Don't bother with the food.

“Backpacker Inn”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Backpacker place, noisy, full of drunken yobbos at night. Best to cross to the otherside of the road
