Having visited Kelly's Beach Resort a few years' ago i welcomed the opportunity to return. There's so many features that make the resort worth the drive from Brisbane that it's hard to know where to begin. I just love the design of the stand alone studios with their mezzanine sleeping areas under timber cathedral ceilings instantly generating a fabulous holiday... More

I came here as part of a tour and found everything to be well maintained and enjoyable. My girlfriend and I had an entire suite to ourselves, which contained two double beds and two twins. One of the doubles and the twins were up in a loft area, while the other bedroom was private off of the kitchen and living... More

We live in Gladstone and visit Kelly's Beach Resort at least annually. We love the accommodation - self contained, comfortable and spacious. We love the porch, especially if we get one overlooking the little stream. It's super relaxing and the gardens make it a place to just go and flake out. We always play a bit of tennis, and walk...

Clean, tidy comfortable, lovely setting, helpful staff,good pillows! We loved the water dragons everywhere.We will be going back, & would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends. It was so nice not to have traffic noise, & be able to sit out in privacy overlooking the lake.

We found Kelly's to be a big hit. They have plenty of activities for the kids and the onsite restaurant takes the pressure out of the evening meal. Kelly's is a great venue to base yourself from while visiting the Bundaberg region. Check the cabin configurations suit your family needs. Staff are children friendly and very helpful.

This is a lovely natural ambiance resort. The place was built some time ago, but still has charm and is in a great location, very close to the beach. Nice and quiet and dark at night. And the security screens mean you can leave all the windows open and enjoy the fresh air. The individual loft cabins are comfortable and... More

Fabulous for families. The kids were able to get around on their scooters and explore everything on offer. Water dragons are part of the local area and kept the kids amused! Facilities were comfortable and everything you need to start toe holiday is provided. Local shops cater well for all your other local term needs. We had lots of trouble... More

Travelling solo and used to luxury I was severely disappointed. Cabins were clean however I had to kill a few nice sized cochroaches. As i have a phobia with them i slept with the light on and slept uneasy and spoilt my "relaxing stay" Aircon is set to turn off every four hours and I think the price u pay... More

YourSay, Manager at Kelly's Beach Resort, responded to this review

Thanks so much for your feedback. As a 3.5 star and self contained property, we certainly don't aim for luxury, and we do price it at this level too. There are no other properties of a higher star rating that are less expensive or the same price as us. Perhaps it is different if you have travelled in other parts... More
