Located about 8 km from the Esplanade in Hervey Bay, the Emeraldene Inn & Eco-Lodge offers a quiet oasis of lush gardens. If you are looking for accommodation in the middle of the restaurants and bars, then Emeraldene may not be the ideal place as it is a drive into town. However, if you are looking for a quiet place to escape the noise and commotion of the Esplanade, then Emeraldene is a place that you should certainly consider.
We booked a deluxe suite and found it to be quiet and clean. The walls were made of brick and so we never heard our neighbors. The room had a sliding glass door which opened up onto a patio. Since we had an end unit, we also had windows along one wall in addition to the patio door and the front door which allowed for nice breezes. There was also an AC unit.
The room had a kitchenette with a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge and some dishes and cutlery. Cooking a big meal wouldn’t be an option, but it was nice to have the facilities to make breakfast. There is an Aldi supermarket about 3 km away and so we could self cater. Otherwise, the office offers a breakfast for $12.
The communal facilities include a pool and a BBQ. There is wireless internet, but as we had the furthest unit from the office, I had trouble getting a signal in the room with my phone. This was fixed by just sitting outside the office to download my email.
The staff were really friendly. Upon check in, they gave us a map and made recommendations for places to eat in town. They also book tours and were really helpful in this regard. We were planning to go to Lady Elliot Island the next day and upon hearing this, the staff offered to call the airline to see if we could get on an earlier flight. They kept at it all morning which was something that I hadn’t thought of myself and was much appreciated.
I wouldn’t hesitate to stay at the Emeraldene again the next time that I am in Hervey Bay. I would certainly recommend it.
