The Beach Motel Hervey Bay is in tropical gardens directly across from Shelly Beach. The motel has simple, affordable accommodations and is a great starting point for Fraser Island.
Score from 582 reviews Very good
Great set up - felt like a modern, clean, bright apartment rather than a hostel. Beds were really comfortable & wifi was the best we've had in Aus so far. Free bikes available for use.
The owner pick me up to the bus station and drove me there in my return. good bed, excelent kitchen facilities. It is a great hostel, good value.
I was so comfortable there that I could have stayed longer.
Bed was very comfortable and it was very clean, Helpful with a map too.
NO BBQ , no free bikes to use as advertised Tried to get us to hire electric ones. The cleaner living in the room.
Extremely helpful staff.
Good kitchen and tv area between 3 rooms, free wifi, luggage storage, short walk to shops. Owner was friendly and let us hang around in a tv area while we waited for our bus.
Nothing of note
Gary was exceptional- he summarised all of the trip options for visiting Lady Elliot Island and Fraser Island and then made the bookings for us. He then kept our luggage while we visited the Islands, which was really useful. We stayed overnight on both islands and then came back to the Friendly for alternate nights. The room was fine and the shared bathroom was basic but clean. The share kitchen was fine but we recommend labelling your food to avoid it going missing... There's also a shared sitting room and TV, balcony and laundry facilities.
There's not much to Hervey Bay itself but the beach is nice, and it's perfect for island visiting.
Although we arrived late and only had one night here its a lovely place. Every one is friendly and helpful they even dropped us to the bus the evening we left for free and stored our bags although we checked out at ten.The rooms are clean and the place is just so homely,sofa tv and good cooking facilities. Nice change if want a break from party places.
Nothing.Great place would definately recommend
Different Units with 3 rooms each. Each Unit sharing a Kitchen and Bathroom. Very clean.
location, Style of accomodation, staff friendliness, helped out very well
nothing out of the ordinary
nothing out of the ordinary
Very friendly staff. Good location, it's only a 3 min walk to the beach. Supermarket is just around the corner. every unit actually has an own kitchen and fridge. Really enjoyed my stay there.
Can't think of anything.
Room to sit and relax, or cook dinner.
No convenient place to place toiletries when using the shower.
- Nice staff - the hostel was cleaned everyday - free bicycles to rent - free wifi - Free shuttle to bus station It is a rather small and familiar Hostel
- Shuttle to bus station was 3 times a day on fixed times, but better than nothing
The staff at reception were very welcoming and helpful giving us comprehensive information about how to get around in Hervey Bay Room was a good size Common area was comfortable and spacious for the number of people the unit catered for. Proximity to the bay itself was great The hostel was very flexible about us being able to check out really early without having to see them at reception first. Shuttle service and free bikes were great extras
The internet did not work at all no matter where you were in the grounds. One shower and one toilet in a unit that catered for 6+ was not enough as I found out when I waited nearly 30 minutes to go to the toilet in the morning. Could have done with more of the basic cooking utensils you need in a kitchen such as some sort or baking tray etc. The oven had not been cleaned in what seemed like a very long time.
The friendly atmosphere and how we were helped whenever we needed to be.
Nothing apart from the wifi speed however this only deteriorated towards the end of our stay and the rest of the time it was good.
Quiet, peaceful, very homey. Didn't feel like a hostel, more like a shared house. Room with closet space, night stand, individual lamp and multiple el. outlets. Free bike! Very quiet at night, but maybe I was lucky with my room and house mates.
wifi was a bit unstable.
Room had a very large comfortable double, air conditioner and fan! Had a great nights sleep. Clothes washing facilities excellent. Kitchen well equip with cozy sitting room. Place had a homely feel. The booking desk organised our tours before arriving which was great.
The staff here was excellent, quick to respond to e-mail arranging pickup from the greyhound stop, then super friendly and on time on the day I arrived. Very helpful giving us maps etc of local area, free bike rentals were great too. We stayed in a double room, which was lovely, the bed was good and it was very quiet for a enjoyable sleep. The bathroom and kitchen facilities were much nicer than expected, the photos on booking.com don't really do it justice. Free wifi and close to beach and shops
Nothing everything was perfect
Good location, friendly host, nice house
The bed not very clean
Nice location with friendly staff and well equipped kitchen. Thanks Gary for the whale watching recommendation!
Wifi sometimes drop-off.
free bikes available gary provided lots of info on the various tours. wifi worked in rooms and is free kitchen was very clean bed was comfortable close to beach and shops very good value for money
Well-managed!!! Building, separate flats rather than big dorms. Clean refurbished kitchen and bathroom. Deck upstairs with views of bay. Handy to shops, cafes and pub. On-site parking. Booking for tours. Wi-fi and computer available. Laundry to be booked.
All good. Would stay again!
Location, staff. Peter was really helpful and kind and a really good guide, ask him for tips to explore the area, you wont regret it!
Bit noisy at night as the walls are a bit thin.
I amsure you can not find better than this hostel.
Well within walking distance of most facilities.
Our room was right next to the living room, some other guests chose to sit up until the small hours and enjoy themselves.
