Charlton Apartments
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Just had a couple of nights at Hervey Bay and we were very pleased with the choice to stay at the Charlton Apartments. Great location, right near the Surf Club (make sure you have a drink on their new deck on Saturday afternoon - from 4.30pm) and a short walk to the shops and a good range of eating places.The apartment was well maintained and spacious, with a good sized balcony with the ocean only a stone's throw away.
A great bonus is the friendly welcome of the management team - thanks for your assistance, Dave.

We found the location fantastic] with a fantastic pool and undercover car parking.

We selected two rooms, a double suite and a three room suite. The rooms were spacious, clean and with dishwasher, drier etc.My daughter, her husband and baby stayed in the two room suite but we used the three room suite for meals etc, I didn't actually enter the two room suite but my daughter was happy with it.

In the three bedroom we had mum and dad in the en-suite room, master 13 and master 7 in a two bed single room and miss 21 and miss 8 sharing a double bed in the third room, plenty of room for our bags in the room and groceries in the kitchen.

I have given the Apartments a good rating on all criteria but an average on children's activities as it has a pool but no other children's activities on site. However the beach and swings are just across the road with the swimming flags and other facilities a short walk.

We will say at the Charlton next time we venture to Hervey Bay, we all enjoyed the location and suites.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in a three bedroom apartment facing the beach, it was quite with a good...

We were very happy when we arrived at the Charlton Apartmentsas they are directly opposite the beach. What A fantastic view we had. The Apartment was modern and spacious and had everything you need.We were really impressed as the apartment was spotlessly clean.Close by are lots of cafes and restaurants. The onsite manager was friendly and really helpful .
My only grumble is that we couldnt stay longer. My son loved swimming in the pool and I loved sitting on the balcony looking at the fantastic view. Thank you we will be back.

We've just had three nights at this property. Well located, friendly management, well appointed apartment - bathrooms and kitchen especially. Spacious lounge/dining area. We chose a garden view room, but still had ocean glimpses! Apartment was airconditioned and had ceiling fans as well - we were there over a very hot weekend. We're looking forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!! We chose a garden view room (cheaper), but the ocean view rooms have grea...

A spacious apartment but definitely not "luxury" as advertised "Charlton Luxury Apartments". The apartments are old and in need of a little modernisation. The kitchen was old but useable, The double bed was very comfortable as was all the furniture, indoor and out. The room smelt a bit stale when we first came in and the frypan was not correctly washed by previous occupants and still smelt like fish. The fridge stank of fish and we had to buy vanilla to get the smell out. Overall a nice stay, but would prefer to stay in a more modern apartment further up in Torquay. Location was fabulous as right accross from the beach and the pool was nice, but only 1 BBQ area for a lot of apartments! No gym either. Shops and restaurants very close by.

Room Tip: A ground floor balcony close to the pool and easy to access No gym, Only 1 BBQ area, Nice pool

Thank you for your feedback - here at Charlton Apartments we value our guests comments and suggestions.
We do apologise for any inconvenience caused with the frypan and fridge - if you had let us know as soon as you found the oversight - we would have gladly replaced the frypan and organised for the fridge to be rotated out.
Being a seaside community - a lot of guests do come for the fishing aspect of Hervey Bay and we do have continingies in place for this - ie rotating a fridge out of an apartment.
Our current advertising should state "Charlton Apartments" - I will endeavour to locate the out of date website advertising and make sure it is updated ASAP, Thank you for letting us know.

Recently stayed with my sister and niece to attend a family function. While the resort is not new, it is unbelievably well maintained and CLEAN! Everything is extremely well presented with all the crockery and cutlery stacked in order and neatly. A lovely little pack of toiletries is provided, and the bathrooms are as clean as the kitchen. Good quality towels and linen. Very comfortable beds with new or near new bedspreads. These are large apartments. Also viewed with penthouse as some cousins were staying there. HUGE!! Really huge. They had 7 staying and all very comfortably. The front apartments look out over the beach, so a nice view. Good location with nice restaurants close by. Wild Lotus is very good.

My family and I recently stayed at this resort in Hervey bay. Our apartment was very clean, and very spacious. The manager Dave was very friendly and very knowledgable when booking our family tour whale watching.
The kids enjoyed being across the road from the beach and the bike track.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants in walking distance. Our family enjoyed their stay so much we booked to come back in November.
