    « Second time around »

    This is the 2nd time I have stayed in a rented unit, firstly in a 3 bedroom, this time in a 1 bedroom. On both occasions there was more than enough room and they are very comfortable. It is a home away from home. The only minor criticism are as highlighted in the attached photos. The bathroom shower screen requires repairs as does the sink. The dining table whilst ok to look at is not very practical for leg room. I lost count of the times people knocked their shins and legs. Location wise excellent. Will be back

    « Perfect stay »

    Great find! I called ahead of time as we'd be arriving late (driving up from Brisbane earlier that day) as the reception isn't 24/7. Staff were very nice over the phone and since we were leaving early I actually never saw any of them - but they had left the key where they said / with some instructions on where to drop it in the morning. Well - what a surprise I had when I turned up here to find we'd basically booked our own apartment / with garage. The furnishing is great / extremely modern and huge inside - the rooms are all nice and bright and it was super quiet / I had an awesome nights sleep. This place was exactly what we needed as we were up early to head to the ferry for Fraiser in the morning. I was sorry to be leaving and that we hadn't stayed here a day or two!!

    « Gem of a find »

    Wow! We have stayed in the bay many times before but this time decided to stay off the esplanade. Finding the Quarterdeck was easy and booking a two bedroom room was smooth. The room was clean and tidy and private with a deck outside. One of the best parts was that our car was park in the private garage of the room. It was an easy walk to a quiet beach for the kids to swim and fish at. Will be back.

    « Lovely stay. »

    We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit which was fantastic. It had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. It was clean, tidy and was in a great location ( you do need a car). We enjoyed using the communal pool and spa facilities. Also we hired DVD's from reception for free. Would highly recommend to others and would definately return.

    « A Decent Serviced Apartment in Urangan, just outside Hervey Bay town »

    As a home away from home, it met our family needs very well. Our 3 bedroom deluxe villa was new, fully furnished, with central air-conditioning. There is a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. There were three good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom on the ground floor had an en-suite. Even with two infant cots in it, there was space to spare! There is a private, shaded outdoor patio for our property for outdoor dining or to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. Our villa was on facing the road, so we didn't have to go through the main gate to access it. The road was not busy and noise was never in issue during our stay. As the 3 bed deluxe is the largest villa on the property, no upgrades were forthcoming for my Diamond Select status. I did get bonus points and two bottles of ice cold water on arrival, which was more appreciated than a pack of crisps or candy bar in the warm Australian weather. The most appealing feature for us was two private, dedicated, enclosed parking spaces attached to the villa. This was a key benefit of staying in a self catering town-house style villa. Note that there is a nominal charge of $10 for infant cribs/cots. As a base to visit Fraser Island, it was ideal, being very near the boat harbour and marina. They was also no credit card surcharge, unlike many other hotels in Australia. Well done! Once you understand that this is a serviced apartment/self-catering villa rather than a hotel, then the star rating and all the comments made by other reviewers would make sense. For example, there is no daily housekeeping - not many timeshares or self-caterings do daily housekeeping. The location is on the outskirts of Hervey Bay. You need to have a car to fully enjoy the local area. There is no on-site restaurant so give yourselves time to get to the shops the night before. The nearest Woolworths supermarket is a short drive away (closes 9pm weekdays/6pm weekends). There is a pool, outdoor jacuzzi/spa pool and sauna, located within the main villa complex. Accessing via the electronic fob was hit and miss, but the pedestrian side gate worked just fine for us. The sauna was not working when we tried it. We reported it and maintenance was on the issue the next morning. The property is 60 m to a 'pet friendly beach' as advertised, but that is not a beach that is attractive to swimmers compared to the stretches in Hervey Bay town.

    « Dissapointing »

    Booked a pet friendly room for 2 nights via phone. When we arrived our booking was wrong and we were in on wrong dates. Sorted that out and eventually made it to the room. Upon unpacking we found the bed was not made up at all. So back to reception we went. Had to make our own bed in the end. Overall we were disappointed with the place. Besides the check in drama, the grounds we found un-kept. Our courtyard was not mowed with palm fronds all over it. Pool and Spa looked neglected with Spa full of leaves. Unit was nice but attention to detail and organisation let the place down. Expect more for the price. Dearest ever we have paid to have our pet with us.

    « Superb stay »

    We were welcomed with big smiles and an upgrade & got this huge apartment with terrace, and 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor to ourself.The aparment had everything we needed during our stay. Garage, laundry,kitchen, dining area, living area, toilet on ground floor and huge bathroom en suite. The property itself was gated and had swimming pools. A short drive to the nearest supermarket and the only noice we experienced was of birds in the morning. Looking closely, you will se some wear and tear. The staff was superfriendly and help with recommandtions and booking for visiting Fraser Island. We would absolutely come back to this place.

    « High quality accommodation but not so high finishing touches. »

    We booked a 3 bedroom 2 floor apartment that looked amazing. We were very happy upon arrival with the quality of the apartment until we got settled in. First the ducted aircon in one bedroom didnt work. It was a hot and humid day outside which ment one of our kids had to sleep in the lounge room, then the quality of the showers was not great. The shower leaked out onto the bathroom floor and created a slip hazard with the tiles being extremely slippery. The shower head was a Bunnings $20 special. just terrible spray coming out. Then in the Kitchen was a rusty disgusting toaster, in the lounge was a mirror on the wall falling apart, upstairs was a dated faded and dirty couch and the office chair at the table had a wheel missing that was on the floor next to it. When this was all pointed out to reception they took notes but no apology or offer to fix the problem.

    « # bedroom apartment was great BUT ? »

    The smoke alarm from the next door apartment (privately owned)could not be switched off and our overseas guest could only get 3 hours sleep on the lounge down stairs, the staff were aware and very apologetic but when it came to get the refund thru Wotif they were not so forthcoming, as there are plenty of options in Hervey Bay we will not stay there again.

    « Inconvenient location »

    The Quarterdeck is basically a modern villa/townhouse complex, with onsite management. The sign outside shows 5 stars, though I'm not sure why, as there is no restaurant, room service or even a fitness centre onsite. As the complex is fairly new, we were very pleased with the modern style of our unit, which was pet friendly and why we chose this accommodation. The major drawback however, is the location. It is a good 15 minute walk to the closest restaurant, being the boat club and around 45 minutes walk to the main Urangan beachfront area to find a good coffee shop. There are no views from the complex and everything seems quite closed in, though this does make things quite private, which I guess is a plus. It is only a 2 minute walk to the waterfront, however, this is not really a swimming beach and the tide goes out a long way. So all in all quality of actual accommodation very good, but location not really having a great holiday feel. If you don't mind driving everywhere it is fine though. First and last for me.

    « Short break »

    Quick check in. Quietly surprised by spacious accommodation which offered every amenities and reasonable price. A walk to boating harbour but not too bad! On down side was a little dusty especially the bedroom.

    « Whale watching in Hervey Bay »

    The Quarterdecks is lovely! Our villa was located close to the pool area which featured a great bbq, enormous spa, sauna and beautiful pool! The Villa (#48) was two level with TVs both up and downstairs. The master had a massive ensuite, the double single room had an adjoining bathroom and there was a pullout click clack lounge for our third older child. Lovely kitchen full of everything to cook up a storm or a 5 minute drive to restaurants. Car accomodation in lock up garage. Full laundry. Two living areas. Outdoor bbq area with courtyard. Very spacious villa with room for the family. We'll go back for sure!

    « Simply more than OUSTANDING ! »

    We booked at last, finding the last room in the town and there. SURPRISE, actually was not a room, but a very nice apartment quite a luxury one, on two floors, having a large living room, 2 big bedrooms, 3 big bathrooms, kitchen, laundry, garage etc. We had been there 3 nights, visiting the area and Fraser Island, and our stay had been more than OUTSTANDING !! The ladies that manage the facility were friendly, polite, gently really beautiful. And they help us a lot even finding a last tour to Fraser Island. If you stop there, this place is a MUST, Enjoy !

    « A quality place »

    I enjoyed my stay in a one bedroom villa. It was functional, quiet and clean. I didn't have a car, and was able to walk to the Marina in about 20 minutes. The shopping centre was a similar distance. A car is needed for other parts of the city. The full kitchen was good and used daily. Would have been helpful if a few staples like olive oil were provided. Wifi was good.

    « Good location close to the water »

    A little bit out of town but in nice quiet location. Only a short walk to the beach. An excellent place to stay if you are attending the Hervey Bay Seafood Festival. Staff were very friendly and units were private. The grounds were well maintained but the units need a good clean.

    « Excellent Again »

    We stayed in November 2016 and couldn't fault it then thus decided to stay here again. Great decor , full kitchen facilities , lock up garage and fully gated. Not far from harbour and small shopping centre,Botanical Gardens and only a few minutes drive into Hervey Bay. Stay Here.

    « Fantastic »

    My husband 2 girls and I had an over night stay in a 2 bedroom villa and could not fault it, the large kitchen had everything you could possibly want including a servery out to the outdoor dining area. The living area was spacious with a big comfy sofa, then upstairs opens onto a small 2nd tv room which was great for the kids .. 2nd bedroom with 2 single bed plus seperate toilet and bathroom with bath .. the master suite was a fantastic size with super comfy king bed and massive ensuite. It was a shame we were only travelling through, would've loved to have stayed longer and would happily recommend to family and friends.

    « Hiiden Gem - a return visit last weekend »

    Tasteful decor, spacious rooms, attention to detail in their housekeeping. Even the cutlery was all lined up perfectly! Close walk to beach. You will need a car for any other activities close by. Helpful staff.

    « Getaway »

    One bedroom apartment fully self contained noting overlooked. Lock up garage with direct entry to unit.Gated Community .Free bus service to local boat club which overlooks harbour and has great meals. Whale watching boats leave harbour and is only seven minutes drive from unit. Also 3minutes walk to beach.

    « Great apartments »

    We needed a 2 bedroom apartment for myself and 2 teenagers. Really well appointed, clean and modern with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and knowledgeable of the local surrounds, attractions and tours. We had to cut our trip a little short and Sally was extremely accommodating and understanding of our situation. Nice and quiet, close to boat harbour and cafes. Would recommend and will definitely be back!

    « Highly Recommend »

    Based on the very reasonable tariff, we really didn't expect much but this was a real surprise. Huge, modern, spacious, very clean, very comfortable. Very large lounge, with dining area and full kitchen. Separate bedroom with comfortable queen sized bed and a fully appointed bathroom. Location is near beach and within striking distance of Fraser Island barge. Also near a small shopping village. Very welcoming reception staff..very helpful. If you want a great place to stay in Hervey Bay this is the place.

    « Modern accommodation suitable for small pets »

    Nice modern apartment with all modern facilities,including bathroom with a bath, would be good if you had small children. We stayed 3 nights and were able to take a small dog with us for a fee. Our apartment had a small backyard backing onto bushland were the dog was safe to wander. Lock up garage and key entry to facility was really good. A short drive to shops, club etc. and handy to airport.

    « Lovely relaxing stay »

    The staff were helpful with our booking, advising which room suited our requirements. We arrived as it turned out on Show holiday, and a lot of places weren't open, so having had a bit of a drive from Brisbane, we rang and were accommodated just a bit early to our room. The rooms were spacious and clean. The unit we stayed in was the one level, 2 bedroom, 2 garage unit. Which was perfect for my husband and myself and my sister and her daughter. The bedrooms were spaced apart for privacy. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were amazing!! I always have trouble with pillows when away but these were the best. The kitchen was large with all the basic necessities. There is cooking equipment, just the basics, but it suffices for light meals. The room had a deck off the back for meals if required and the units themselves are set off near the beach, so very quiet and peaceful. Its a 5 minute walk from the beach. Though the beach is not a sand beach, but a pebble one, its still a lovely walk. A short drive will take you to the pier and lots of places of eats are not far. The staff were super helpful and we would recommend these units for couples and families. The units are a little older I think and just need a little touch up in some places with paint and possibly some newer blankets, but everything was super sparkling clean and tidy but those are just tiny things and did not impact at all on our stay. We loved it there. There is a pool and spa and sauna, though we did not avail ourselves of those as it was a bit cool for me. We really enjoyed our stay there.

    « Perfect. Clean, modern, relaxing and secure. »

    Outstanding. Came for work but enjoyed the facility. Polite check in. The apartment is clean, spacious and modern. Very comfortable with everything you need for a long or short stay. Shops are close by as are many restaurants. Beach just a short walk to the end of the street. Free wifi. Outdoor patio and personal garage. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

    « Location away from amenities »

    Although the apartment had plenty of room it all looked a bit "tired" and in need of refreshing. We had no real view as we were surrounded by other townhouses/apartments. We prefer walking to taking the car when in a hotel/resort and found it was a bit of a trek to the nearest restaurants. We didn't use the pool as we were off to Fraser Island the next day. We ate in a harbour restaurant (Cafe Balaena) were I had my first taste of Coral Trout - simply delicious and (in my view) better than Barramundi. We also witnessed the evening flight of thousands of flying foxes - spectacular.

    « Amazing »

    We wished we stayed longer than one night and now want to retire in Hervey Bay! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was huge and beautiful. My partner loved the private carport, our 3 year old loved the pool and I loved it all! The king sized bed was an authentic king base etc, it was very clean and modern with all the amenities you could need for a self contained stay. The huge spa was incredible. We didn't get a chance to try the sauna unfortunately. We will definitely be back.

    « Very comfortable and very well presented »

    My husband and I stayed here for one night en route to a holiday at Fraser Island. Our apartment was really lovely - matching furniture throughout, full size fridge, good size tv and a beautiful bathroom. The apartment had an enclosed back yard with outdoor furniture. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful and recommended the boat club for dinner. The beach is a short walk away (as is the club). A shopping centre is about 15 minutes walk away. This is a secure complex. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. This is the kind of place that you could easily spend a week or more at.

    « Really, honestly, faultless! »

    Wow where to start. The apartment we had was huge! was very modern and clean and had everything we could have wanted. The staff were so helpful, the lady at reception was always happy to help and answer our many questions. The pool area is great and I have never seen such a big hot tub. The location is a little out of the way but walking distance to the beech and could get hotel pickup for our tours. We really did have a fantastic stay here and felt so at home despite being on the other side of the world. Highly recommend

    « Space space space and comfort »

    Best value in Hervey Bay, get your self a villa and have your very own garage, with just a short walk to the beach! Great pool and quiet complex. Have been time and time again for work and never disappoints

    « Spacious and decent stay »

    We stayed one night in this retreat. Hervey Bay was just a brief stop on our way to Lady Elliot Island. We drove 3 hr from Brisbane to here. We had a three-bedroom suite with two floors. The suite was very spacious and the kitchen was equipped with everything you need though we only prepared our breakfast. People could probably utilize the facility much better if they plan to stay longer. As a stop-over, I high recommended this place.

    « great place to stay with a pet »

    l recently spent 6 nights at this property and all l can say is fantastic. The complex is a mixed townhouse development with some being owner occupied, some full time rentals and a number are part of the hotel. l booked a one bedroom apartment and had a 3 bedroom (two were locked as they were not needed) with a huge living space, large ensuite and king size bed. the apartment had a small backyard with an outdoor setting and deck. I took my dog with me as the complex is pet friendly and 40m from the dog beach (off leach from 3pm to 8am). On check-in the lady on duty, Margaret was very helpful and provided a great summary of the area and the complex. The hotel has a pool, spar and BBQ's but no restaurant. It is a little out of the way meaning you do need to drive if you go anywhere, though it is about a 10 minute (1.2km's) walk to the boat club. All in all a fantastic place to stay with a pet that l would highly recommend, it's clean, modern, spacious and well equipped. The full size kitchen was well equipped and has a fridge, microwave, oven and stove-top.

    « Spacious and Relaxing place »

    We recently stayed in Villa 35 at the resort for 1 night and had a wonderful stay. The Quarterback caters for overnight and longer stays. We travelled up to see children and stayed in a Three Bedroom Villa. Our villa was upstairs and downstairs with living area downstairs with Kitchen and Laundry and toilet. Laundry had a washing machine and dryer. Outside you have a courtyard and table setting. Upstairs we had 3 bedrooms with a king size bed in main which has a walk in robe and ensuite. Double shower in the ensuite. Second room had a queen size bed with wardrobes and Third bedroom has 2 single size beds. The Villa caters for 7-9 people when referring to their website so I expect you can change bed configuration if you ask or there is a sofa bed downstairs. There is a toilet in ensuite and also a separate toilet upstairs. A great feature of the Villa is an upstairs lounge area with a TV and DVD which could be used by adults or children. There are tv points in the main bedroom but the Villa we stayed in didn't have a tv in the room. Full size fridge is located in kitchen and your normal cooking facilities. Microwave and cooking utensils are also supplied. You have a 2 car remote lockup garage available with cars parking back to back which enables to walk directly into laundry area or lounge area. The complex is a short walk to the beach and is close to Hervey Bay Boat Club and the marina. Woolworths and small shopping centre is less than 5 mins drive away for supplies. You have no ocean or scenic views at this complex but was quiet and would appear very family orientated. The complex is gated for security and has a pool area. We were able to obtain to sets of keys for our Villa which includes a remote gate key to the complex. I have included some photos of our Villa to see the quality.

    « Stay here »

    Well set out apartments each with fully set out kitchen ,a small backyard with clothesline & lock up garage.Onsite pool,spa & sauna and close to shopping centre, botanical gardens and marina. Great staff as well.

    « Great Find in Hervey Bay »

    Got a great rate on for a 3 night stay in a one bedroom villa at this wonderful property in Hervey Bay. We've been travelling for a month in Australia, most of it along the Queensland coast, and this is by far the nicest accommodation we've found in this price range. The modern two-storey townhouse is spacious, immaculate and beautifully furnished in a contemporary decor. It has a well equipped full kitchen and separate laundry area with washer and dryer. The master bedroom is large with a very comfortable bed and pillows and a large ensuite bathroom with shower. They maintain a large inventory of DVDs at the office, which you can borrow to watch movies on your large flatscreen TV. Good strong free WiFi signal and speed is adequate for light use (email and browsing). There is a great BBQ in the pool area and you have your own private garage to park your car. It's less than a 5 minute drive to the closest shopping centre with a Woolworth's supermarket, a butcher shop, bakery and bottle shop. The restaurants on the Esplanade are 5 to 10 minutes away by car.

    « A great place to stay! »

    We were travelling with our dog - and that's always a challenge, however well behaved your pooch may be. Ours, thankfully, is pretty good. We chose this place because it has some pet friendly accommodation available. But what a find it turned out to be! The one-bedroom apartment was large, comfortable, modern and nicely furnished. Good air-con, good wifi, good shower, good kitchen facilities. Ours had a surprisingly large outside space, giving the dog somewhere to run around outside. We were close to the pool and barbecue area, which is very nice. The staff were excellent - we were a bit late arriving and they phoned to check we were OK. On our last day, we found we needed a bit of extra time and they helped us with a really late checkout. This really couldn't have been better. We'll certainly be back

    « Large apartment with good facilities »

    I stayed for a week in October 2016 as a business traveller. The deluxe villa was clean and modern design. I liked how it had a kids retreat upstairs which would be great for families wanting some space. Bedrooms and bathrooms were large in size and the upgraded shower head was a nice change. Comfy lounges downstairs and up. The kitchen was very modern however whilst cutlery was fully stocked I had differing numbers of crockery i.e. 1 plate, 8 bowls. The remote contol garage was great for off street parking. I would recommend this location if you have a car as its a little 'out of town' compared to other options around Hervey Bay. However if you are happy to walk around the town - it will suit you also.

    « Perfect place for our family vacation »

    My son found this place online. It is ideal for our family consisting of two parents, their children, one of their spouses, and two grandchildren. The lounge, dining area and kitchen are spacious and well appointed. The bedrooms are comfortable and set up around a small lounge with TV. The villas are located close to the Esplanade and pier. The attached garage is convenient and helps keeps the cars safe. The patio has a table with six chairs.

    « Private in bush setting »

    Secure and private units near the boat harbour in a bush setting. Near the boat harbour at Urangen, so it's slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the esplanade strip. Reception was good but the rooms need refreshing.

    « A great place for people and their puppies »

    My partner and I (and our 2 Labradors) were originally staying 2 nights on the last weekend of August 2016. We enjoyed the first 24 hours so much we booked a third night! The one bedroom villa was perfect. The back grassed courtyard was secure and we just left the sliding door open so that the Labs could go in and out as they pleased, they loved it. A short 5 min walk to the beach and a nice 15 min walk to Urangan Pier and Off Leash beach, you can't ask for better. Lock up garage, comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen and laundry and a great pool, jacuzzi and BBQ area, we will be going back again soon. My only improvement recommendation is for a larger TV in the living area. If you are looking for a relaxing place that welcomes you and your puppies, ring Margaret and make a booking. Thanks for everything Margaret, see you again soon. Chris Meaker

    « Great value »

    This was a great value. The suite was huge and since I was there on my own and it came mid-way through my trip, it was nice to have access to a kitchen and a washing machine/dryer. The women working reception were incredibly nice.

    « Good room, friendly staff, great place to stay »

    We really enjoyed our stay. The ladies in reception were friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and spacious, it was equipped with everything you need to cook meals etc. The pool and bbq area were great. The property was nice and quiet. We really liked it, certainly no complaints and would stay again.

    « Weekend getaway »

    This resort is excellent, nice rooms , pool, spa, and BBQ area. Margaret is lovely and did all she could to make our stay enjoyable. Taking our 2 Labs with us and staying in a deluxe room was fantastic, the fact you come to the Hervey Bay Area with your pets and stay in well appointed rooms is great. Everything is catered for in the rooms , kitchen , laundry , outdoor patio, comfy beds and dining / lounge areas. There's a safe dog beach at the end of the street and a short walk to the Hervey Bay foreshore and cafes etc. We will come back.

    « Lovely service, lovely villa and close to the Marina. »

    Visiting Hervey Bay for the whale watching trip, this great accommodation option was one of the places recommended by the tour operators. We needed 3 bedrooms for ourselves and extended family and our lovely villa just fitted the bill. We had one night for just $219 which was great value. The accommodation is just along the road from the marina. So whilst the tour operators offer a pick up, you are only an easy 15 minute walk to the cafes and restaurants to have an early breakfast before the trip. The staff were very efficient on our phone booking and followed up with great service on our arrival. The villa itself exceeded our expectations; it was basically a 3 bed home including a garage and a garden! Lovely service, lovely villa and a great position!

    « Lovely place to stay »

    Stayed here in a deluxe villa with the hubby and two kids (toddler and baby) Lovely spacious rooms with courtyard off the pool. As it is Winter it was promised to be quiet and it was, although I did question a father and son exiting the pool area only to discover the large spa is heated and I didnt bring my swimsuit to indulge. This two bedroom came with all the mod cons (microwave, dishwasher, dryer, washer etc.) Was a very comfortable stay. I even enjoyed an afternoon walk with my son on the nearby very private beach which leads to the marina and then further up the Boat Club and some other restaurants. My only gripe was the airconditioner which we used to warm up one morning was very loud and needs maintenence.

    « Fantastic Resort & Staff »

    I had the privilege or staying at this beautiful property on the weekend and can't express enough how absolutely beautiful the Rooms and facilities are. The staff were also excellent - very helpful and accommodating. Overall we had a wonderful weekend at this Resort - the only negative was that it wasn't for long enough.

    « Great value for a Family »

    This is the second time we have stayed here in a 3 bed villa. I was travelling with 2 adults and 4 kids and there was ample room and the value was exceptional. Two bathrooms, 3 toilets and the option of another pull out futon upstairs, everyone had their own bed it was great. Full kitchen and laundry. With two lounges also there was no need to argue about tv channels. Absolutely no need to cram everyone into a hotel room when this is available. The complex also has a great spa, pool & sauna. When travelling with kids I would highly recommend staying here. We were in villa 14.

    « Quiet, lovely unit. »

    This is our second stay here. We love the spacious unit with all the mod cons and the quiet location. It is unusual to have such quality accommodation that is pet friendly. You have your own yard and there are no restrictions on dogs being inside the unit. We love holidaying with our dog and rarely experience such quality. The dog friendly beach just a short walk away is fantastic for a daily walk. Love the secure feeling of the gated entrance and the units feel very secure. It's hard to leave. We'll be back again, hopefully soon.

    « 3 day stay »

    OMG, was gobsmacked at the roomy layout of the deluxe villa, it is well maintaned, clean and offers modern appliances. Is located 60m from the beach and shops within a short distance. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their Hervey Bay and surrounding areas. Definately recommend staying here and will return again i the near future

    « Quiet, clean and spacious »

    We stayed in a one bedroom villa for 2 nights. The villa was very spacious, clean and nicely decorated with all the facilities we needed. The garage and outdoor seating were also a bonus. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the villa was a great quiet base to explore Hervey Bay. We were just 5 minutes away from Marina where we went whale watching. I'd recommend having a car whilst staying here.

    « A regular place for us to stay »

    We have stayed here on multiple occasions and always found the rooms spacious, comfortable and clean, with a well equipped kitchen. The staff are always very helpful and friendly. The location is quite, though still handy to many amenities, and very easy to get to the boat harbor from.

    « Quiet location. »

    We stayed here for three nights in a 1 bedroom unit which was modern, spacious, comfortable and had a fully equipped kitchen. Our own garage was a bonus. We asked for a spot that was quiet and away from public areas and that is exactly what we got. It was only a short distance from the marina. Would definitely stay here again!

    « Great place to stay »

    Couldn't fault our stay at Best Western Plus Quarterdecks. Room was lovely, clean and spacious, staff were friendly and helpful upon check in, and we were even able to check in early. We didn't have a car, but there is a garage to park onsite, and I would recommend hiring a car if you're staying in Hervey Bay, would have made our stay a little easier.

    « Love this place! »

    Our second visit here, this time we had unit 15 which was on the street and a three bedroom place. Cannot fault the service, the resort or the facilities (we particularly love the pool/spa/sauna) - the only reason we didn't score five star was the aircon in this unit was very noisy. Akin to a jet plane :-) but all in all, still a wonderful experience

    « Quiet convenient location! »

    This was an excellent choice of accomodation for a large family or group of people, the townhouse was beautiful and modern as well as clean. The laundry was a bonus. The pool and spa area were well maintained and private. Only downfall to this place was the wifi which was free but didn't work well.

    « Wish We Stayed Longer »

    My husband & I stayed in unit 14 for a 2 night stay during our honeymoon. We were upgraded to unit 14 which was more than we needed, but very nice. Clean & spacious unit with laundry. Staff were friendly & helpful. Nice pool, not very big but great for cooling off and it was in a nice enclosed area. Wifi wasn't great but not a major issue for our short stay. You get what you pay's free.

    « Good stopover »

    Stayed here while we visited Fraser Island and Elliott Island would like to thank Margeret and her staff for being so very helpful, thank you for looking after our luggage while we did our sighting seeing. Within walking distance to shops and harbour. Very clean accommodate with all amenities. Would recommend. Thank you again.

    « Wonderful stay- Group of 6- Spacious, affordable, clean and quiet. »

    We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa- 4 adults and two children. Large living area, with outdoor space, fully equipped laundry, kitchen and double garage. The main bedroom was spacious, and the ensuite/WIR was huge. Nice living area- large- plenty of room to move. Location was ok- in a very quiet area, away from the tourist areas. Complex facilities (Pool BBQ and Spa area) were kept clean, and well maintained. Plenty of space for each family- 3 toilets & two TV's in the 3 bed-villa, made life a little easier with the kids! The villa was spotless, the staff were friendly and the kids did not want to leave! A great stay- Thank you.

    « Large, clean & quiet »

    Very well maintained spacious self serviced apartments with everything one could possibly need. Quiet location away from Esplanade so a car is a must & would not suit those wanting water views. Stayed in one bedroom unit which even has its own courtyard. Onsite pool, spa & BBQ. Serviced once a week. Free wifi but no Foxtel. Window covering in bedroom not great & lets too much light in for those wanting to sleep in during a vacation would be a criticism

    « spotlessly clean, spacious villa »

    We stayed 2 nights (a return visit after staying one night earlier in the whale watching season). Villas are spacious, spotless and nicely fitted. Service is professional and welcoming. It is a really lovely complex although the room was warm when we arrived and we would have liked the bedroom cooler. There is a fan but would have benefited if the air con had reached the bedroom better but otherwise nothing to fault. Free internet was very useful - many of the places we look at charged up to $25/day. Good value stay! Outside deck was lovely - each villa has its own deck and small garden

    « One night stay »

    The apartment was lovely, spacious and comfortable. There was also a nice little patio area. It was very quiet but not far to walk to the beach. The people on reception could not have been more helpful. I would have been happy to spend a week there.

    « One night stay »

    Lovely complex and operators but an overkill for my overnight business trip. Not close nor convenient to food outlets, no room service and you're in the suburbs. Ok if you're there for whale watching because it's close to the Harbour. May I also suggest that a torch would be a handy accessory especially in times of a power outage and all phones are rendered useless when the power is out so in the event of an emergency all management would be uncontactable which is not ideal. If you like a large one bedroom apartment, full size kitchen with nice furnishings then this is the place for you.

    « Overnight with Friends »

    Three couples overnighted in Hervey Bay to go Whale watching. We were all very happy with the 3 bedroom town house we rented. It was very spacious, an extra toilet downstairs, and very comfortable beds. The upstairs area had a fold out bed that could be utilised for another couple if need be, or bring an air mattress. The apartment appeared to have most of what we would have liked to have if we'd stayed longer. It was an easy walk to the Hervey Bay Boat Club and the restaurants around the Marina.

    « Perfect »

    We have just stayed there over the weekend in a one bedroom villa - despite the fact it is school holidays there is still a lovely peaceful feeling there, the retreat has a pool, spa and sauna and the villas are very private. Everything was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable, the staff were lovely and very friendly - it's all secure and gated and I would absolutely recommend this place without hesitation
