    The best view in Hervey Bay for the best price. Very happy with the facilities, service and accommodation. We found everything to be clean and tidy. Close to the harbour where most of the tours leave from. Lovely restaurants in the area.

    Great location and pool facilities. Room needs work in terms of comfort and cleanliness. Reception staff helpful. Not enough cooking facilities in room for a self contained three bedrooom apartment. Had 3 bread plates for a unit that sleeps 6

    We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
