We had the good fortune to be able to spend four nights at the lovely Whitsunday Moorings B&B in late June, where we were hosted by the wonderful team of Sandra and Mel. It was our first time staying at a B&B, and I'm afraid we have been spoiled forever by the incredible kindness and quality of service we received.... More

Hi Jackie, It was an absolute pleasure to have you here during your 25th Wedding Anniversary. As you know Whitsunday Moorings was quite the 'Lover's Lane' that week! With your 25th and the other guests celebrating 35 years of Marriage and a couple of brand new honeymooners :) It was very joyful and Mel & I had a great time... More

We've been staying in a mixture of accommodation places on our road trip from Port Douglas to Airlie Beach and our time with Sandra & Mel was a highlight. From the outset Sandra's emails were welcoming and friendly. She is an excellent host as is her daughter-in-law Mel. They happily accommodated our slightly earlier arrival and later checkout at 11am.... More

Came here for a three day getaway while visiting friends in Brisbane- the very reasonable package included flights and hotel. Location is beautiful, pool is small and pretty, highlight was the wonderful breakfast and great coffee. Also appreciated the ride to the ferry on leaving. Main Street stores and beaches are a 10 minute walk away. Altogether, a lovely relaxing... More

We were in this B&B beginning of May, it's a real hidden gem in Airlie! Splendid views from the room, a fantastic breakfast every day, and most of all: marvelous hosts, with Mel who took us at the port of Airlie at 6h30 in the morning because we had a cruise departing at 7h, and Sandra, who took care of...

Lovely people making you feel welcome that care for your well being. Well done Sara and Melanie! The accommodation has everything you need, but some technical maintenance is due. But a nice swimming pool, a superb breakfast and all kinds of small attentions make your stay very nice.

Hi, Thank you for your lovely review. I understand that your internet may have been a bit slow, however that is usually not a problem. The good news is the NBN (new internet network) has just rolled out in Airlie Beach and the Moorings is switiching over on Friday...Hopefully this will alleviate the problem.

We stayed in 2 different units bookending a sailing trip of the Whitsundays. Both were wonderful. Our new hostesses provided beautiful EARLY breakfasts for departure for sail and to the airport on last day. The B&B is surrounded by tropical gardens and birds, views of the marina below.

The fresh fruit platter, followed by a hot egg breakfast with great coffee while looking out at the stunning views really created a pure holiday feeling.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Simply stunning breakfast with awe inspiring views"There are few places in the world to welcome in the morning than over a sumptuos 'A La Carte' breakfast served on fine china at Whitsunday Moorings Bed and Breakfast. This is a place to play out your billionaire lifestyle fantasies, gazing on the marina below and dreaming the shiniest boat is yours. Whitsunday Moorings has just 2 air conditioned suites (more like apartments) incorporating all the right touches such as crisply starched linen and luxurious Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. The scene is flourishing, bird filled tropical garden, inviting swimming pool and a short stroll from Airlie Beach village. But why leave when one can bask on ones own private balcony, poolside, overlooking the panoramic views of Pioneer Bay and busy marina below. The local tour boats are geering up for their exciting day ahead sailing out on the hazy horizon, past the sleepy Whitsunday Islands of the Coral Sea and onto the Great Barrier Reef and beyond.Both suites feature private terrace with Spectacular Views, self contained for light meals eg. fridge, micro wave,etc.Daily Serviced and Air Conditioned.Full traditional breakfast consisting of freshly squeezed orange juice, a selection of tropical seasonal fruit, followed by a variety of cereals, a choice of hot main dishes, breads and jams, coffee and teas. After this feast you won't want to eat for a while beleive me.The rooms also feature full Foxtel Satellite, 100+ TV channels, ensuite, shower, hairdryer, toiletries.Computer and full wireless facilities for laptops. Come,and let us pamper you at Whitsunday Moorings BnB. ... more   less
