We stayed in Hervey Bay as a base for a Fraser Island tour and Boat Harbour Resort was perfect for this. The room was very comfortable and well equipped, also very clean. The owners were very helpful and went out of their way to assist us. Another bonus was having access to laundry facilities, which came in handy during our...

We needed a place to stay for our day trip to Lady Elliot Eco Island resort. We didn't want to pay to high a price just for accommodation to sleep at night. We found Boat Harbour Resort to be within our budget, easy 10mins drive to the airport for our early morn flight to Lady Elliot. It was near supermarket...

We stayed as a family break in Jan 2017. Kids loved pool but both were bitten terrible by sand flies..such a shame as had to go to docs as cabin also infested. RSL is great and courtesy bus picks you up. Michael is a great host. Amber is a little sharp. Hospital beds need updating and air con outdated and...

Thank You for your review rippa6. I am so sorry if I seemed a little sharp to you during your stay. If you stayed with us for a while you would know we live onsite and sometimes it is difficult to be on all the time so I do apologise for that. I assume you gave us one star due...

We stayed here for one night prior to a trip over to Fraser Island,it is a great location, walking distance to the boat club, room was dated but Ok, the iron didn't work, so wore wrinkled shirts to dinner LOL, the handle was falling off the bathroom door and wouldn't latch, only minor things.

Thank you for your review KarenandIan2013. You are the first person to mention the mattress so I will check it and order a new one, thanks you for bringing it to our attention. The iron has been replaced and the bathroom door fixed.

Situated at the quiet end of the Esplanade, it's a Gem. Opposite the Ocean, just down from the Fisheries, and walking two blocks from the shops and eateries and the RSL...fantastic. The rooms are clean, well equipped and AC TV and kitchens and with Laundry facilities...and a Pool! Fantastic stay.

We recently stayed here for a week in a 2 bedroom villa (villa no. 5) and had a great time. Pros: - very cosy and compact resort across from the beach - pet friendly villas meant we were able to bring our dog. They are welcome inside as well. A huge bonus! - Great layout and comfortable size, completely detached...

Thankyou for your review Lana_Bree. I am so sorry you sleep quality was affected by the lack of Window coverings on the high triangle windows. We have been looking at ways to address this and hope to have something in place in the next few months. We find that the air-conditioner in the lounge is usually enough if it is...

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and son and really wish we could have stayed longer. it is really convenient for the airport to get flights to Lady Elliott and also close to the Fraser Island barge.

Thanks for your review Summerhols101. I'm glad you liked our Christmas tree and our resort overall. We are constantly working to improve the Wi-Fi and Telstra assures us that the NBN will fix all our problems in 2018, until then we will continue to look for ways to improve it.

Good location just over the road from the beach! Nice rooms very clean pool was also very clean. Our hosts Michael and amber were just truly amazing they couldn't have been more helpful.

We just left and we want to say a big thank you to the owners. They went above and beyond to help us out with the boat and made sure we were comfortable and happy. The rooms were clean and we loved relaxing on the little balcony with the birds.

I arrived late at night in early August, staying just one night to catch a flight to Lady Elliott Island the next morning.
