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

We were amazed at the beautifully renovated room, attention to detail, so clean & tidy. Ron & Mary were fantastic hosts, cooked a great free breakfast, loved the fruit salad in the little jars & homemade jam definitely not what you would expect. Great location so close to the RSL.

Don't let the outside fool you. A humble older style motel but the rooms have been renovated and are beautifully appointment with modern furnishings. The rooms are huge and would sleep a family easily. Bathroom very tastefully renovated and modern with kitchenette. Loved the idea of "cook your own breakfast". No wastage of food and a great way to meet... More

If only the bed had not been SO hard. Slept little and shoulders so sore the next morning. Could not have stayed two nights on that bed. Room was clean and well equipped. Great idea to cook one's own breakfast. Bacon and eggs and toast done the way we like them. No washing up. Owners very helpful.

We stayed overnight @ the Main Street hotel. It is run by a couple of wonderful friendly "Kiwis", Bob and Mary Preston. We had trouble getting a Fraser Island reservation through the Fraser Island website, but the Prestons arranged everything ahead of time for us.

Good clean and large room. Comfortable bed and excellent shower. Staff very friendly and helpful with information about the area. Breakfast is self serve and self cook if you want bacon and eggs, but everything is provided. Handy for the supermarket, and close to several fast food outlets. Free parking and wifi.

This motel is the best, friendly service, very clean & is close to everything. Highly recommended. This is the best maintained motel I have stayed in for a very long time. The RSL is right next door & the pub just up the road. These people know what good service is.
