Only stayed one night pre a visit to Lady Elliot Island. We gathered the current owners were new and hopefully they will give the rooms a lick of paint but the new owners were very helpful and we wish them well.

I only stayed here because it's close to the hospital. Next time I'll pay for a cab. The air con units are very old and not adequate to cool the room properly. The jug was so old the metal was burnt but to the managers credit he did replace with a new one. I don't get the "eco"

Hi Gary, Thanks for staying with us and leaving a review. We do feel sorry your stay had not met your expectation. I am a bit disappointed that the jug has made you feel uncomfortable. The colour on the bottom of the jug is the burn mark from boiling water. It is very common when jug was used for sometimes, but does not mean this jug is a very old one. Regardless we have since replaced a new jug for your room. The old aircon does not work as efficiently as any new system. As we are experience extreme hot weather recently, it does need longer time to cool the room down. Doors need to be closed for it to work efficiently. Sorry you didn’t get the “eco” feel of our place because of the fridge and aircon. Our “eco” tag is more to do with natural environment and wildlife and our approach to room servicing practices, which has been highly appreciated by many guests.

Maybe the rooms need a little bit of an update. Maybe it still looks a bit like a regular motel but don’t let that put you off, this is a great place to stay. The rooms are spacious, more like a studio than a hotel room with sofa, dining area and kitchen. The room was very

We recently stayed in a family room overnight when passing through Hervey Bay. Our room was suitable for our needs - nothing fancy but in keeping with what we expected. It was good to have a kitchen so we could self cater. The motel is located just a short drive from the beach

Hi the Mewett Family, Thanks for leaving a review - your comments are appreciated. I am extremely disappointed that your stay was not impeccable, and particularly disappointed that the service was poor. I was away over the Xmas / New Year period and had some relief managers looking after the property. We are a family business and property and we take pride in our hospitality and personalised service. I am genuinely sorry that this wasn't extended to you by our relief managers. I do hope if you are ever in the region again you give us another chance to show you what we are renowned for. We would love to have you stay with us again. Best regards, Rob (Owner)
