We can highly recommend the Colonial Lodge! Service was very friendly and helpful. Rooms spotless and well equipped (there was even cooking oil, kitchen paper and cling wrap in the cup board).Rooms were spacious. We would be happy to go back there, when visiting Hervey Bay again!

We stayed here for two nights, one night before a tour to Fraser Island and another the night we got back. We experienced an amazing service from the moment we got into reception. We were given helpful advice on where to eat and get some shopping. We were helped to our room with our bags and were told to leave our suitcase that we weren't taking on the tour with us and that it would be put somewhere safe while we were away and it would be in our room when we go back.

Excellent Price!

Wish we could of stayed longer!

There is a recent review that does better justice to the accommodation at Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge than I ever could, so I will just second it as the accommodation is excellent.

What I would say is that the owners make the place a home from home. I corresponded a little with them before we arrived and all emails were answered promptly. We stayed in HBCL the night before going to Fraser Island. Most of our holiday was arranged through Trailfinders but I booked HBCL myself in preference to the places recommended by Trailfinders because of the great write up it had on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We were due to meet the bus for Fraser Island at the Marina but the owners told me that the bus could pick us up at HBCL and this was the case. It picked us up at the door and dropped us off there too. The owners agreed to keep an eye on our hire car while we were staying overnight on Fraser Island and they kept our suitcases inside their own accommodation while we were away.

On their recommendation we stayed in HBCL on our return from Fraser Island and that was sound advice. You are knackered (in a nice way!) when you return from two days on Fraser Island and the last thing you need to be doing is heading off to your next destination in the dark since your return from Fraser Island is not long before sunset in August (about 6.30 pm.) Also everyone in Australia keeps the speed limit and it is 100 kph( 62 mph) on single lane stretches of the Bruce Highway so it takes you a long time to get anywhere. There is not much traffic though.

The owners made what could have been a stressful time very pleasant and for that many thanks.

We stayed here in a 2 bed unit for 3 nights in September. This is a family run "boutique" establishment with only 9 units.
If you want somewhere central yet quiet then this is it. Located just one road back from the esplanade a peaceful night's sleep is virtually guaranteed.
We understand that all the cleaning is done 'in house' and it shows. Our unit, number 4 was presented in immaculate condition and we were shown to the room instead of being handed the keys which is a nice touch.
The main bedroom has a comfortable double bed with crisp white sheets, a ceiling fan and the benefit of a
bedside clock with iphone dock.
The second bedroom has two single beds.
The bathroom has been fully refurbished with fully tiled walls,new vanitory unit and a spotless shower cublcle. There is a separate wc.
The lounge area has a three seater sofa plus two single recliners. a table and 4 chairs, a flat screen tv. dvd player, a ceiling fan and a very functional split cycle air conditioner which is capable of cooling/ heating the whole unit.
The kitchen has modern units, fridge/freezer and unmarked oven. Also a microwave and all necessary cutlery.
All windows have new timber blinds and the carpets are also new.
Externally the pool looked immaculate and very inviting. There is the benefit of undercover parking.
The owners are very friendly and helpful.
This motel is extremely good value and highly reccomended.

Located I block back from the beach and short walk to cafes which are along the beach front.
The unit had a lounge area and a separate bedroom and was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was clean and modern. Then staff were very helpful and check in was quick The cost $95.00 for 1 night was the best value on our latest trip. There was parking in front of our unit for 2 cars. The kitchen had everything need to self cater if you wish. There was a small pool, which we didn't use as it was too cold. Check out was easy and they even gave us a couple of maps as the Bruce Highway was so bad we wanted to use another route. There was free WiFi. I would definitely stay here again
