“Fabulous stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I stayed at the Moorings with my partner for 8 nights over New Year, and had just a wonderful time. Peter and Glenn are fabulously welcoming and accommodating hosts, and Glenn cooks some mean scrambled eggs! Our room was immaculate, so clean and tidy, lovely touches with flowers left in the room, and my favourite - a cafetiere and packet of fresh coffee that was replaced throughout our stay. Breakfast was blissful - so gorgeous to come out onto the deck to a spotless white linened table, and a beautiful fruit platter (Peter became quickly accustomed to our requests for extra toast so after a couple of days we didn't even need to ask!). Watching the lorikeets jostle over their water was rather magical. And the hammock was a great place to enjoy a glass of wine of an evening :-) A slight walk up and down the hill to the main stretch, but not an issue and well worth it to be away from the hustle and bustle of Airlie Beach to relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the harbour. I would recommend to anyone and should we return to the Whitsundays, will be sure to go back. Thanks so much.

Room Tip: Having the room right next to the pool made it feel like our own!

Spent with my friend Stefanie three days at Whitsunday Moorings B&B and we just wanted to stay...

We both travel a lot in the world but never stayed at a place as lovely and beautiful as this B&B. Really no luxury hotel can compete with it!

Peter & Glenn the hosts of Whitsunday Moorings are one of a kind: extremly friendly, helpful and caring - felt like family... In their cosy library they even booked all the trips to the Withsundays for us. The treatment couldn't have been better!

The rooms are just georgeous in every detail, lovely decorated and of course totally clean. They have all their one little terrace with a stunning view over the harbour of Airlie Beach. Surrounded by beautiful green gardens with a cosy pool to relax, relax, relax...

Every morning Peter & Glenn served us a no1-breakfast on our own terrace with fresh fruits, fresh juice, the best omelette ever and again lots of love in every detail... There was even our German national flag besides beautiful flower-decoration on our table!

WE JUST LOVED THIS PLACE AND OF COURSE PETER & GLENN!! We want to come back as soon as possible...

I debated a long time as to whether to stay on Hamilton Island or use Airlie Beach as our Whitsunday base. I'm so glad I chose Airlie Beach and Moorings B&B.

Peter is a perfect host. The breakfasts he prepares each morning were our favorite during our whole trip to Australia. Freshly squeezed OJ, poached eggs, sautéed mushrooms, ham, toast... You name it. He will also book your tours for you, which was nice. (Speaking of which, DO NOT MISS the Whitehaven Xpress tour, it was the BEST).

The back deck is perfect for breakfast and watching the sunset. We loved watching the birds in the morning as well. It's a short walk to the marina and into town for dinner (we liked: Mr. Bones for pizza, Fish d'vine, and Village Cafe).

When you arrive on the ferry from Hamilton Island though, you'll want to take a taxi or shuttle up the hill with your bags. Shuttle is only $3 per person. (Be aware... Ferry from Hamilton is $45 each).

Our 4 night stay at Whitsunday Moorings was great. Peter is a wonderful host. He gave us good tips on tours and even booked them for us. Could not ask for better service. Breakfast was as beautiful as it was delicious. We especially enjoyed the flock of lorikeets!

From the moment we arrived, Peter made us feel at home. The views from the terrace were breathtaking and the birds that frequent the garden were delightful. The room was clean and spacious, with a great attention to detail. Watching the sunset from the pool deck was spectacular and the breakfast that Peter prepared for us was the best that we had during our three week holiday. Upon arrival to town, it may be advisable to have a car or taxi service take you to the b&b, as it is an uphill climb. Walking from Abel Point Marina is possible but tiresome and lengthy when carrying bags. Once we settled in, walking to town and back was no problem at all. Definitely recommend.

The host, Peter, runs a wonderful b&b with a view of the marina. He was welcoming and accommodated our every need. The breakfast and service is better than any five start resort we've been to and the place instantly felt like home. Incredibly reasonable prices. Strongly recommend.

I stayed at Whitsunday Moorings for 2 days in July 2012. The place is gorgeous. The back deck is surrounded by tropical plants and lorikeets come twice a day to the feeder. The back deck overlooks the harbor and the sun sets right there. you couldn't have a better view. The owners Peter and Glenn were very nice and the breakfast was excellent (fresh fruit, hot and cold breakfast, the works). They are a good resource for local information and recommendations. Overall, the best part is their attention to detail. Everything you need, in just the right place.

Room Tip: There probably isn't a best room, since there are only a few in the house. They all overlook the...
