We booked in a one bedroom unit on the ground floor overlooking the pool area. Room was nicely furnished, great king size bed, was clean and comfortable and had a nice balcony overlooking the pool. Inhouse movies are all free and many to choose from. Breakfast is a good selction of hot food, cereals, fruit and all fresh and plentiful. Staff were pleasant and helpful - check in and check out were a breeze.
We dined at their own Smokey Joes Restaurant Sunday night and while it was not busy, it took 50 minutes to serve our mains (they also do room service from the same kitchen so prehaps this would explain?) The serving was quite small and overcooked (burnt) and my wifes salmon was unappealing and swimming in a pool of melted butter - but that is my only gripe about the Ramada.
Just 80mtrs away from the hotel is "The Boat Club" - an RSL type club with the typical restaurant, bars, pokies and entertainment. We dined there twice during our stay and the food was nice, plentiful and served in record time (10 minutes). With a 2 year old in tow, we didnt expereince the rest of the club but do recomend a visit. Next to the club is a boardwalk with the odd bistro and cafe dotted along its lenght so there are few more choices available.
The location is near the marina and a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of the many holiday makers visting Hervey Bay which may not suit some, but for us it was perfect. A short 10 walk will take you around to the jetty and some more shops and cafes. Overall we had a great relaxing break and chose to relax by the pool most days and will be back again next year.
