“Curious but okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

The rooms are packed with an eclectic mix of imported furniture, too much In fact. Bed was comfortable but bedspread was circa 1970s and should be thrown out! Air con did the job despite the rattling and consequently masked the noise of the dripping shower. Reasonably clean and staff very friendly. Accommodation in Weipa is scarce and expensive so The Heritage Resort is in the budget category and ok for a night or two.

I have stayed at the Heritage Resort on a couple of occasions when taking a fishing holiday in Weipa. The last stay being 2 nights in June 2013. The location is close to the shopping complex with a Woolies, great bakery, bottle shop, chemist and 4WD/Camping and tackle store so its ideal to pick up a few last minute items.

The service is very good offering free collection and drop off to Weipa Airport if required. The rooms are big and all I have stayed in have 2 DB and 1 SB with a large bathroom. The larger of the DB is a little too low for me being only 30cm from the floor so it can be a little awkward trying to get out of bed.

The restaurant offers a wide selection of food from Thai to Western. Although a little pricey its still quite good value when you consider the location and costs of transportation.

Again at $180/night it may seem at first expensive but given the location its reasonable for a motel style room on the Cape.

I recently spent a week here whilst on a fishing trip. I must say that the hosts are very helpful and genuine people. What travellers have to remember that Weipa is a very isolated place. The people here are slightly eccentric.My room had an eclectic mix of furniture, from the white chaise lounge to the converted waterbed with the vinyl covered heart shaped bed head. The food was fantastic, you are able to give your catch to the Thai chef and have it prepared in any way you like, all for $20. Pool was being renovated but looked great.
The rooms are comfortable though cluttered. Clean though a little tired. The air con rattled away all night. There is a great bar/ restaurant decorated like a Chinese restaurant but with imitation French Louis xiv furniture. The wine prices make your eyes water but premium Aussie beers are six bucks. Would I come back? In an instant. We were made so welcome , it felt like home!

Room Tip: All rooms appear the same though the rooms at the far end have more privacy.

Having never been to Weipa and it being a very remote location, this Resort has all the comforts you need.

Pool, Air Con, BAR ! and excellent food.

The rooms are old but clean, the Air Con is old school type making lots of noise but it keeps you cool in this climate so didn't mind.

The food is excellent, Thai Style, very surprised as the quality this far North but loved it all the same.

I liked this place. Not five star but we were in the middle of a mining town. Clean, easy to find, pleasant people in reception. Great restaurant and value for money. Stayed overnight on way up to the Tip and very pleased we chose the Heritage Resort. Best value for money

Rooms very cluttered too much furniture for the space. Poorly maintained rooms, repair needed to make door secure. Pool very cloudy and not enticing even though very hot. Bird cage near the dining area very unpleasant smelling and a turn off. No cold water available in the fridge and given the hot weather its a necessity not an option.

Just had an awesome lunch there today. Huge barra. Fellow guests had the mudcrab. Sensational food and cheap for Weipa. Will go again.
