“Good place for good value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We stayed one night in the Best Western. The accommodation was clean and had plenty of room. The breakfast included toast, conflakes, eggs, some fruits (canned peaches etc. but also fresh apples). All in all, our stay was very good.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Stayed here for three nights at the end of November 2012. There is nothing I can say to some this hotel up other than SUPERB! Greeted by Bernie (i'm assuming hotel manager) on arrival, who was very pleasant and talked us through everything from rooms, breakfast, the best excursions etc etc.

The rooms were very new and well maintained. Air con, balcony with sea view, breakfast included, five minutes walk to town, free WIFI .. everything was spot on.

The kitchen staff came to talk to us each morning to find out our plans, again very polite.

There is nothing bad to say about this hotel, I'd recommend to anyone. The value for money is for all to see!

The hotel is nice and quiet clean and also nice priced for the average of airlie beach. A little out of the center but 15 min walk to everything. Staff was very nice and kind: we forgot a t-shirt there and they shipped it to us after we left, it was really appreciated and we would surely go there again if we came back to airlie beach.

Stayed here for one night, it was great everything you would want in a motel. Lovely pool and spa, very relaxing and quiet. Staff were very welcoming nice friendly place and not far to walk to Main Street where there are plenty bars, eating places, shops.

We stayed here for a night before and after a boat trip in the Whitsundays and couldn't be more satisfied customers. The laundry and free internet facility really enabled us to have a great pit stop in our travels. Clean and comfortable rooms, nice range of breakfast choice and very convenient location. Really friendly staff and very helpful service - even looked after our luguage whilst we were on the boat.

A lovely motel, well located with great rooms, staff and facilities. The inclusive breakfast was excellent as was Bernie's knowledge and advice. This motel deserves to do really well now that Airlie is expanding in that direction!

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. Approx. 5 min walk from the lovely laid back town of Airlie Beach. Nice ,spacious, clean rooms. Free wi-fi availalbe. Very few backpackers. Good parking facilities and permission given to leave car in carpark while we were on a 3 day trip to the Whitsundays. Lovely breakfast each morning and very friendly staff. Very small pool. Would recommend this hotel.
