This was a nice hotel and very decent location near the edge of town and close to the beachfront. Staff was courteous and helpful. Room was clean and quiet. My only wish is that all the hotels (or the town) had a free shuttle service back to the port. Instead, the taxi drivers make a fortune here!

I loved everything about this place. First of all ask to join to be a member. $50 which gives you 30% off your room and a $50 voucher for the Restaurant down stairs (Capers). Best location. Best cocktails (Capers) happy hour on a Friday. Room was an average hotel room- but who spends their days in Airlie in their room??...

We stayed here for a very short 2 nights and wished we had longer. Airlie is a gorgeous place with much to see and do. Upon checking in, we were upgraded to a sea view room with a balcony which was nice. The room had the usual tea and coffee making facilities plus a fridge. The bathroom was clean, you...

Clean, comfortable room, friendly staff, central location. Didn't pay for a view, so didn't expect much more than we got. We were here on business, so met our needs. Return guests. My husband was really looking forward to Mexican, however they no longer have the Mexican restaurant, so ate at the Airlie Beach Hotel, which served nice food.

We stayed here on two separate nights as we were going on a boat tour and also to stay on one of the Islands. Both nights the room was clean and they let us check in a little early and go to our room. Downside is that the air was not on in the room and it was so so...

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Airlie Beach Hotel. In relation to the air con not being on when you arrived, this along with some other initiatives at the hotel helps reduce our carbon footprint. On particularly hot days it can take from 10-20 minutes to cool the room down. We are please you enjoyed your stay and...

Airlie Beach hotel is ok if you're just needing a crash pad for a night on your way elsewhere in the Whitsundays. I really expected a bit better. The hotel, while clean, was quite outdated. It just felt sad and run down. The pictures online and the price per night suggested a much different, and nicer experience. The location is...

We stayed here for 2nights to celebrate a 50th birthday with family and friends. Pretty sure we dominated the majority of the 2nd floor facing the beachfront. Many of us had travelled either interstate or from NZ and were in awe of the location and absolute proximity to everything. Our room 221 was perfect for our family of 4 as...

Stayed here for three nights due to the 4 star rating on Trip Advisor. However, I would not personally recommend staying here. I am very surprised that this hotel was rated so highly. The cleanliness of the room was very questionable. I would not dare walk on the floors barefoot or sit on the toilet seat. I tried to touch...
