“Great Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a very pleasant stay, the room was comfortable and clean. Rob, Sandy and Charlie, made us feel incredibly welcome and nothing seemed too much for them, they were fantastic hosts. Their tropical garden is beautiful. Would recommend Harbourside B&B to anyone looking for a quick break as there is plenty to see and do in the area.

Room Tip: Bedroom 1 had a lovely view to the front garden.

It was a pleasure to say there. They made you feel very welcome I would recommend anyone to stay there . The bed was so comfy and so close to where were going. They made coffee in the mornings which was beautiful. Made sure our Harley Davidson bike was covered. They spoke and was interested in what you saying. Most motels take you money and you never speak again. Or make you feel that your just another visitor. They made you feel like you were there only guest.

One night at this great venue! Habourside suited us perfectly,two grandparents and two children. The hosts are parents so this venue is child friendly with lots of extras available that are not advertised,board games,scooters and a great park over the quiet street .We would also have no reservations coming back as a couple. All areas were extremely clean,including plenty of towels and linen.Our bed was so comfortable and the kids enjoyed their twin beds and library in the cupboard. Quiet surrounds and a lovely garden area. We will be back!

We enjoyed our stay here, we were visiting family who lived nearby. The hosts were friendly and helpful, the room comfortable and very clean. The b and b is close to the beaches and a good spot for touring the area.

We chose Harbourside B&B because of their location as it was in close proximity to where we were attending a wedding. As we were only staying one night, this fitted our needs perfectly. Rob was very friendly and helpful. The room was decent sized and was clean and we found the bed really comfortable too. Would definitely stay there again if I was in the area.

Harbourside was our final stop before flying home to the UK from Brisbane airport. The airport itself is only 25 minutes by car, we drove into the glass house mountains and though we didn't go to it, Australia zoo is abut 45 minutes away.

We were greeted by Rob upon an early arrival. He was fantastic in helping us out where he could. Through email, we had asked if we could leave our cases while we went out for the day and that we would drop them off around 10am. As it happened, he already had the room ready for us (Including cot) so we he offered it to us straight away and it meant we did not lose a day of our holiday waiting for accommodation to allow us in. Added to that, at the end of our stay, Rob also let us hang around as our evening flight wasn't until 11pm. With 2 young kids, we were very grateful of this.

The place itself is unique for a family as one half of the bed and breakfast had master and separate children's bedroom that link through a small corridor with a bathroom also leading off. We could lock ourselves into this half and be self sufficient.

The B&B was clean, tidy, and most importantly for us after 3 weeks of bad beds in other accommodations, very comfortable. Our 2 kids, particularly our 5 year old boy loved playing with their daughter who is a lovely young lady. Polite, friendly and always smiling.

We will be back once we have made a move to Australia, this is a very good holiday destination and also feel like when returning, we will be visiting friends, not owners of a B&B.

If you have young kids, you should visit Redcliffe Lagoon which has amazing outdoor facilities.
