This Motel is nothing like anywhere I have ever stayed at. The owners Mary and Robert are so friendly and helpful. They did so much for us that I could write a book! Mary picked us up at the airport, and gave us a scenic tour on our way to the motel. We were very satisfied with our unit, it... More

Probably the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. The units are well appointed and have some really nice touches. the breakfast set up is superb too. Hostess Mary could not be more helpful she is genuinely doing her best to make your stay enjoyable. Excellent value for money too. Well done!

The motel is located at Main Street, but traffic noise is not a problem here. The rooms were super clean, fully equipped with a kitchen. The owners are helpful and offer support for newbies in Australia. The motel offers breakfast. You have to help yourself with the cooking, but that was not a problem for us. Hervey is a small...

Spent a night at this friendly little motel and were warmly welcomed by Mary (the joint owner). It is conveniently located within a pleasant walk to the Bay and a shopping centre if you need any groceries. The rooms are suitably dark at night - great for sleeping. A bonus is the cook-yourself-bacon-and-eggs breakfast in the little kitchen. It's a... More

This is the best motel I've stayed at. It's beautiful, clean, big rooms, diy breakfast and you get to borrow bikes. It's very central, but quiet. The owners are very friendly and kind, they make sure your stay is great! I definitely recommend this motel to everyone visiting Hervey Bay!

Have just stayed for a week and couldn't not write a review. This is by far the absolute best motel I have stayed at in the Wide Bay.

Passing through Harvey Bay on our way home price and appearance is why we chose this motel. Mary stayed up late to check us in as we were getting in late. I have stayed at many "refurnished" motels but this one has definitely followed it through to the very end. Immaculately clean and comfortable motel. Breakfast in the morning is... More
