“Its got it all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

Nice place we had a 1 bedroom appartment on the third floor had everything and was clean. Had Sucure undercover car parking, close to eatery's and just across the road from the bay. Staff were friendly. Had a pool looked good but did not use. Only criticism, The exhaust fan in the ensuite barthroom is on all the time and was a bit annoying when trying to sleep.

Fabulous clean, central apartments - literally half way along the esplanade. There were only glimpses of the ocean from the balcony but the apartments are clean well designed and just across the road from a huge dog free area of the beach. The apartment is next door to Madigans; a great fish and chip and fresh seafood shop, and a place called China World with great take away Chinese. We would stay there again.

We stayed for just a weekend in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment that was almost as large as our home. It was close to everything, and the manager was extremely helpful. All rooms were air conditioned, and the unit was fully equipped with all the amenities including washing machine, dryer and full kitchen with dishwasher. We are already talking about planning our next stay there, and we only just got home yesterday.

What a surprise. We arrived two weeks ago from a long trip in the outbak to find an immaculate 3 bedroom, two bathroom (!) appartment with luxury furnishing straight on the boulevard in hervey Bay. The owner was extremely helpful, the location excellent with in house parking and excellent restaurants just around the corner. This was the best place we stayed in the two months that my family and I traveled Queensland this year. We will certainly come back, also because Hervey bay is a very nice place to stay for a few days. The whale watching e.g. was spectacular.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

For what it was, the room was quite expensive. There were aspects of the negative reviews which I could definitely agree with (rusty dishwasher drawers, cleaning powders, extra clean towels) however that would detract from what was a very good holiday.

To give this place a negative review would be grossly unfair because Rob Cheek is a top bloke. He went above and beyond for us to secure the right Whale Watching and Fraser Island tours, and advised us very well on what each tour involved. The rooms were not too bad at all even if they were pricey. The TV channels (HD ready) were fine for the evening, there was even access to Foxtel channels. The balcony was nice to sit out and enjoy the morning/evening light, the lazyboy lounges were very comfortable and the location was perfect.

If I was to be hyper-critical, the whole place could do with a lick of paint and some TLC, perhaps the apartments could be slightly more secure. The locks didn't inspire me with confidence but they worked perfectly fine. Obviously any major upgrade would cost a fair bit but it could be argued that extra effort would get that 5th star rating.

Having said that we walked up and down the Esplanade and we agreed that we didn't like the look of any of the other hotels/apartments on offer and would happily stay at White Crest again.

Thank you for all your help, Rob.

Room Tip: 130 looked like a good place to be.

The White Crest one bedroom apartment we stayed in was large, comfortably furnished and spotless. One minor problem we had at check-in was remedied right away by Robert Cheek, the manager, who was friendly and welcoming. The presence of a washing machine and dryer right in the apartment was very convenient. White Crest is just steps away from a terrific Fish & Chips place and convenient to a range of other restaurants, cafes, and shopping. It was a perfect launching point for our trips to Fraser Island, Maryborough, and Bundaberg. We expect to return to White Crest on our next trip to Hervey Bay.

The host Rob provided a great service from time of arrival through the complete stay he was very informative and assisted with all booking during our stay. The apartment was well appointed clean and convenient to all attractions and shops on the esplanade. Will stay again on any return visit.
