You don't go to Hervey Bay for Hervey Bay. You go for Fraser Island, or Lady Elliot Island, or to go fishing. As such, you need a base in Hervey Bay, and the Akama is absolutely perfect for that. It's a quick walk across the road from the marina where everything happens. The apartments are big, clean and brilliantly appointed. Matt and Pia are friendly and helpful. I spoke to them at length- their big problem is one night stays because the cleaning bills are horrendous- don't be surprised if they refuse one night bookings- although if you stay with them before and after an excursion, you may find them more willing to negotiate. It's a genuine problem because of the superb condition of the apartments. Of course Hervey Bay has more to offer- you may as well stay longer because it's actually a joy just to be at the Akama. Book excursions through them with confidence- I found their advice honest and helpful and couldn't find the trips any cheaper.
I don't believe in giving 5 value blobs to any establishment. That's just encouraging them to raise prices!More
