These apartments are well located opposite the beach in central Hervey Bay. The furnishings are comfortable, & the bedroom is on the darker, quieter side of the building. Car parking is under the building & convenient. There is an Indian restaurant on site, but we did not eat there. I would recommend these apartments for a relaxing, hassle free break.

Room Tip: There are 3 floors to the building & I would recommend the top 2 floors for a better view.

I am writing this on behalf of my elderly parents who stayed here for more than 2 weeks due to illness. My father was very ill on his first night and taken to hospital. My mum was left on her own and things would have been very difficult for her, had it not been for Lisa the manager. She took mum under her wing and went above and beyond what she needed to do, including ensuring mum was settled, finding a mobile phone charge cord in the lost property, ordering her room service, and writing down instructions on how to use the mobile phone. We were ringing the room frequently, and all calls went via reception; Lisa's 'phone smile' never faltered. As I understand it from my mum and my brother and wife who ended up staying in Shelly Bay the property was lovely and rooms very comfortable, homely and well equipped, with good views.

We were one of 4 couples who went to the Hervey Bay area for our 40th Wedding Anniversary from 5th to 10 July. As it was school holidays, accommodation was somewhat scarce, but our research on Trip Advisor located this gem of a place. Our rooms were very spacious, on the top (3rd) level, and with lift access, this was a breeze for my wife, who has a disability (no, not me!).
The acting managers were very friendly and were very willing to assist whenever we wanted advice on going places, or doing things. The location is directly across from the beach, which was nice and quiet, even though it was school holidays. All our group agreed that we would not hesitate to go back to this resort, which saves us looking for other accommodation, on our next holiday to the area.

Room Tip: Top floor is the best, unless you want to be nearer to the outdoor pool.

We only spent one night here and wish it had of been longer. We were on the second level in a 1 bedroom suite. It was very clean and well set out with a well appointed kitchen and had an outlook of some sea views through the trees. The beach was just across the road. I highly recommend this property, especially the 3 night deal for $95 per night (off peak stand by rate I think).

This property is directly across the road from the beach which makes it convenient for beach access and lovely views. It is also within walking distance to restaurants. We stayed in a one bedroom appartment. My only gripe was that the bed was so hard that I would wake up stiff and sore. Very friendly staff and very clean property.

Room Tip: A higher location gives you better views of the beach.
