The Staff Were Amazing. So Friendly And Even Aloud Me To Order Late Breakfast. Room Was Newly Renovated So Was Lovely And Clean. I Was Surprised As The Outside Of Building Looked Kind Of Oldish. Location Was A Plus For Me As Was Visiting For nieces Hens Party Which Ended Up In Town, So This Old Duck Could Sneak Back To Room When Ready. Highly Recommends For Anyone, Specially If They Are Hitting The Town

New management has improved the rooms and restaurant very nicely. All staff provide warm and friendly atmosphere (unlike previous review).

Will definitely stay again - business or pleasure - week day or weekend.

I have stopped at this motel a couple of times in the last few months while in Gladstone for work. As far as work accommodation is concerned it is pretty good. The rooms are reasonable size and have been clean and well maintained. Rates are not bad and represent good value. Only downside I experienced is the meals at the motel are fairly expensive, particularly breakfast but there are plenty of other places to eat. It's handy having the pub across the road and the meals there are pretty good.

We stayed at the motel for one night after returning from Heron Island. The boat dock for Heron Island is less than ten minutes drive away, and we pre-booked the motel before we went to Heron as boom industrial town Gladstone is quite difficult to get unbooked accommodation in. As it was a Sunday night it was very quiet and peaceful. Nice, spacious and well equipped room, which was also nice and clean. We slept well!

Very convenient for CBD pubs and restaurants which are only a few minutes walk away.
All in all a good stay. Parking straight outside the room door.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed the same and pretty good.

We arrived at Harbour sails after staying at some pretty dodgy places further up north in qld on our travels. It was such a delight to find a spotlessly clean, quiet, new and sparkling hotel. The manager was friendly and helpful. On his advice we went down the road to the local Yacht club and had a lovely meal - charged back to our room. Thankyou Harbour Sails for being such a refreshing experience!!!!
