Having returned from Fraser Island, Hervey Bay acted as a one night stop over for my girlfriend and I. I opted for the Outrigger as I thought the rate of $110 for a room with a view and spa bath was very reasonable. Although there are a number of far cheaper options in Hervey Bay, the Outrigger lived up to its 4* status. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and the facilities were great, including a well located swimming pool (try and get one of the rooms where you can step out of your balcony and into the pool!). We were due to get a train late in the evening after checking out and the staff arranged for us to use the facilities of the hotel that day, including the pool and showers and they gave us a pass to get into the complex. This was very accommodating. The only downside of the hotel is that it is not located on the main esplanade by the shops and restaurants (cost = AUD$14 to get to the main town in a taxi). The hotel does, however, have bicycles which can be hired providing a nice way to get into town along a seaside cycling track. At the marina, where the Outrigger is located, is an excellent café style restaurant which I would highly recommend offering food with great attention to detail and cheap.
