“Annual Holiday to Hervey Bay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

My partner & I come to Hervey Bay every year for our holiday. We have stayed at a different place every time, but I think we have finally found somewhere where we would happily come back.
The location, accommodation, facilities and friendly staff make you want to stay another day.
I didn't want the 2 weeks to end. Well done Jayesh and staff!

The staff were really friendly. Rooms were clean. Quality for price. Highly recommend. I'll definitely stay again if I come back to Hervey Bay. The rooms were large. Polished concrete floors. Big shower. Large eating area. Huge smart tv. Close to beach. Good bikes.

We had a girl's night and Jayesh was an excellent host, even taught us Indian jungle cooking...yumm! The way that the apartments are furnished is beautiful, the location is so close to the beach and with great facilities to use for a relaxing stay.

Room Tip: All apartments are lovely, the top ones have a lovely view of the sea too.

I travel a fair bit for work and always look forward to staying at this hotel. I watched one of the most Beautiful sunsets across the road at the beach while I was here. I will definitely be back to stay at this unique hotel that is like no other place around

We have just returned to NZ after a two week holiday in Australia, and our stay in Hervey Bay at "The Barracks" was the highlight with-out doubt. We stayed in unit #4 which is upstairs and shares a very large deck facing the sea where we relaxed and watched the never ending colourful birds going about their business amongst the trees just opposite. (we don't see this in NZ)
The rooms were spotless with all the mod cons including a massive LED television, dishwasher and even a large fridge/freezer with chilled water and an ice dispenser.
On top of all this there are bikes available to explore the miles of cycle tracks and kayaks to paddle around the sheltered waters just across the road. All available at no extra cost.
All in all we had a fantastic stay and hope to get back sometime in the future.
Many thanks Jayesh and Mathew for your hospitality and making our stay with you so enjoyable.

Spent a long weekend on a yoga and massage retreat at five 3 five. The rooms are perfect and felt just right for the retreat. The location is fabulous and we enjoyed yoga on the beach just over the road and learned to massage out on the deck. Great weekend with great host jayesh. Thanks, I will be back for the next retreat thats for sure!

This is not the kind of accomadation we usually book but for the price, availability and reviews I thought why not give it a go. Well we sure are glad we did and will certainly return. The location is perfect and quiet within walking/riding distance to the pier, cafes and restaurants.

The apartments are clean, well equipped and obviously loved and cared for by the owner wanting to give you a holiday to remember. The large fridge with ice dispenser was unreal! The beautiful wood furnishings gave a lovely Bali feel.

There are heaps of bikes, kayaks, fishing rods and all the little things that help make it a great family getaway. Honestly, I don't think I have ever seen a place that has offered so many different bikes to suit everyone. The kayaks were a great experience for my kids so thank you. And I can't forget to mention the comfy beach chairs that are also supplied. There is a communal BBQ and laundry as well.

The day we left they were at full capacity but we still did not feel over crowded. Your outdoor area is somewhat shared between guests (you have your own outdoor table of course). This could be easily fixed by adding some bamboo screens between each apartments outdoor area but I feel Jayesh is creating an area where you can chat amongst other guests and so this makes for a perfect place to rent out for several families holidaying together or large groups but still have your own apartment.

We stayed In apartment 2 on the ground floor and would most probably request this one again even though there was slight noise from guests above but nothing to stop us coming back.

This is not a 5 star resort on the gold or Sunshine Coast and we did not arrive expecting so but what we got was 5 star service by an owner who would help with anything to make your stay more pleasurable and a clean, comfortable and homely apartment in a really magical part of Hervey Bay. All these things make for a wonderfully relaxing and well priced family holiday.
Thank you, we can't wait to return.

Dear Thompson101,

Thank you for the best and most accurate review we have ever received!! I was elated to read your feedback and wish that I could have met you on your visit - parallel minds. You have exactly hit the nail on the head of what we are trying to achieve. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience.

We have saved an authentic, old 1920's convalescent home to the best of our ability for guests to experience and enjoy hopefully long into the future. It has it's flaws but we hope we have compensated enough with the new renovation to make it a great experience for all our guests!

Much appreciated, Lisa
