I thought I'd found my Hervey Bay hotel of choice on my last visit, and while I thought the Coconut Palms in Scarness was great, I think this one has the edge. It's a small facility tucked away from the Esplanade in a residential, but still close enough to walk to the beach. I had a one bedroom apartment which was excellent value for money. It had a kitchenette, living area and separate bedroom. The bathroom has been refurbished and was very clean. Being away from the main street, road noise was not an issue. Managers live on the premises. The only minor drawback is that it's a good 10 minute walk to any restaurants, but Hervey Bay is a place where if you stay for a few days you really need a car as it's so spread out - on this instance I was only there overnight on business so didn't hire one so I really noticed the time it took to walk to places. I would recommend the Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge for anyone who appreciates modest, clean accommodation at a good price.

We stayed at the Hervey Bay Colonial Lodge for 2 nights whilst we did a day trip of Fraser Island. I must say we had a very positive experience.

The value for money on offer here is fantastic- the unit we had was clean and nicely furnished ( although a little dated).

The owner/managers were great- very helpful giving information about Hervey Bay, local restaurants, super markets etc. They also have a good number of DVDs to borrow if you want to stay in!

Free wifi is offered and this is of a good enough quality for me to have a skype interview for a job back in London! The owners were also very kind when I had to have a telephone interview as well, letting me use the landline number of lodge to receive a call from London- there are no phones in the rooms.

We also felt that this place had thought of minor little extras in the unit- things such as aluminum foil, clingfilm etc- which is actually really useful and we have not seen anywhere else on our east coast tour.

Overall this was a very pleasant stay, it is a very nice place for a short break, and the value on offer is great.

The price/quality ratio is fine here.

The motel is about 500 m from the beach and two best restaurants in Hervey Bay (Coast and Santini). The kitchen facilities are enough to make food. The rooms are simple but clean. The small pool is refreshing, nice and suitable for children. Free parking is available just next to your door.

If you take an excursion Fraser, you are allowed to leave your car next to the motel entrance and luggage in the storage room. Friendly management who know about the area.

Stayed one night, wish it was longer. Extremely neat and tidy, great staff and modern spacious unit with one or two bedrooms as well as living area. Double lounge with recliner chair to view modern TV. Free Wi Fi. Modern bathroom, great swimming pool and BBQ. It's just one street off the Esplanade. Good kitchenette and dining area. Very, very comfortable. We will return!

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Booked this after reading previous comments and I'm so pleased I did. Great accommodation which suited all our needs for a relaxed 4 days stay. Very very clean and the staff are brilliant. Nothing is too much for them. Their office is open from 8am-8pm and they will do whatever they can to help.
I've been to Hervey Bay 3 times in the past and it's a great place to visit. Some days you feel you have a the beautiful long beach to yourself.
On my 4th visit I will definitely stay here again...no brainer!

This was an excellent hotel. The room was lovely and the hosts were very welcoming.

Only problem, the two bedroom unit would have been better with an extra bathroom. 4 sharing wasn't ideal.

Enjoyed the evening at the sailing club!! Interesting watching the locals at play
