“excellent service”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

The facilities are very good and clean. Good location to pubs, shops and restaurants. Karen was excellent in helping us rearrange our trip due to our previous plan of renting a camper van not working out and gave us great advice. If it wasnt for Karen our once in a life time holiday would have been a bit of a disaster. Also she kept our luggage for two days free of charge while out on a trip. I would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it. Thanks Bridget and Paul.

When I saw the name i was pretty shocked and expected a run down place... but upon arrival we were greeted helpfully and super friendly like never in australia before. got plenty of helpful advises for all around the area and less crowded places and really enjoyed our stay. beautiful to sit on the balcony at sunset and hear the mumbling of airlie... such a quite place so close to the towncentre and modern and bright... all things i didn t expect at first.
thank you very much!

We can only speak very highly of the enthusiasm to help offered by all of the staff at ABML.

Due to circumstances outside of our control we needed to change one of the nights we were staying there at very late notice and they did this without question. We were allowed to store our luggage there whilst we went on a 2 day sailing trip and they refused to take payment which we believe would have been the norm. We were helped with additional travel logistics too with knowledge and enthusiasm which was sooo refreshing for Airlie.

The room was basic but very clean and good wifi with no additional charge.

Overall - well done ladies on making our trip and visit to ABML an enjoyable one.

very good location and price. walk down hill to the shops. lagoon and all the pubs and restaurant.
the room is very clean and looks very new, the small corner for cooking is very useful. the air-con works very well and you need it during summer.
would definitely recommend to others.
various emails to/from Karen in relation to the tours ( very responsive) and please make sure you book the tour through her as she knows very well, also you can book the shuttle bus to/from airport which cost $36 return per person.

Booked this as part of our tour up the East Coast, and from the name we weren't enamored but when we arrived we were really glad we stayed here as it was probably the highlight of all the places we stayed in Australia.

Really unassuming from the outside but the suite we were given was absolutely perfect. Clean, tidy, well kept; I'd have been happy to live there.
Bed was super comfy, kitchenette really well appointed and fans and air con made for a pleasant stay. The two ladies running the place were also brilliant and did our washing for us and had no problem checking us into our room when we rocked up at 8.30am.

It's also really well placed in proximity to Airlie, only a 10 minute walk which is perfect if you decide you want to get changed for a nip in the lagoon.

We only booked one night here before our Whitsunday boat trip, but we wish we'd booked here afterwards too. Definitely recommended for anyone wanting a reasonably priced place to stay in Airlie.

Good location with staff who make an effort to make you stay comfortable. The motel is clean, comfortable, with a reasonable amount of amenities. My girlfriend and I have stayed here on a number of occasions and would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: The owners gave us a discount as returning customers during the low season, so it's worth calli...

Looking for a very clean and perfectly located base to check out the Whit Sundays, look no further. Travelled with our family of five and took day and sailing trips from here. I value cleanliness, location, and helpful staff in planning our trip the highest. I can't imagine a more helpful staff or much better location. Room was large and very clean. We normally stay at Hiltons (Diamond) but I highly recommend this property. Make sure to ask about Croc farm, it was a highlight for our kids.
