sorry, not very good”
the location was great, only 10 minute walk to the main town. All the staff were very nice and friendly. The rest was not very nice. It's a sad, tired and unappealing place to stay. Needs a really good clean, some new FRESH towels ( they provided towels that have certainly seen better days ) and some nice new furniture, especially Reception area. I understand it's a budget hotel, but surely they could take a little more pride in the little things
2. stay : Comfortable bed, spacy room, good breakfast - everything clean, friendly people = great place for the money
could be improved: Bed felt a bit too soft. Shower door was creaky. Road noise. positives: location is great and close to port of airlie where tours depart early. it was nice of staff to provide packed breakfast as we checked out early.
I would definitely stay here again ”
Room was excellent - very big bed everything was very clean Breakfast is supplied and fits our needs to a T Covered parking kept the car clean and cooler The only thing that was not positive is their FREE Wi-Fi is slow, so you can sit by the pool with a drink and wait for your file to download or just forget the download altogether
A lovely place to stay with good old fashioned service that has sadly disappeared from the majority of motels
We stayed here as a small break from the kids.Will be back!”
The location is right next to the new marina and walking distance into Airlie Beach, for those having a night out, no need for taxis to get home! The set up is lovely, with a nice restaurant and bar on the premises, Breakfast included and newly refurbished rooms. There is even a dvd player in thr rooms and the reception has free to borrow DVDs and books. The pool was directly off our balcony and is a lovely oasis style. The staff were excellent and the rooms were very clean.
John was a fantastic host and so accomodating ”
this is a very average motel, nothing out of expectation.. the air-con is bit better , internet is not free and it has not wifi..
Great location and facility”
This is one of the best value I got in Australia trip. The staff are friendly and helpful . It offers Internet comment and breakfast which are essential and are already included in the price
Reasonable value for money hotel”
I suppose this hotel is decent for the price, but it is pretty basic. The apartment was clean and a good size. However, I think next time I would rather pay a bit more and stay elsewhere. Having read some other reviews, I wonder if some of the rooms may have been renovated and we got an older one? It is a bit of a walk along a busy road to get to the beach, shops etc, but this also means it is a quieter location.
Clean, affordable hotel with friendly staff”
Staff were very helpful and friendly. They let us store our bags when we went off on our 3 day Whitsunday cruise. Rooms were generous size with all mod cons, very clean and quiet.
Nice hotel - great service”
Had a good stay, rooms wer quite nicely decorated - only pity is that the outside spa was not heated
Very nice motel style hotel”
Comfortable room with a nice view and free internet. We decided to stay an extra night. Personal at reception was very helpful.
Great location. Rooms were lovely”
enjoyed our stay. the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us find our way.
No esta muy céntrico pero la habitación es grande y tiene piscina. Es el único hotel de todos en los que hemos estado en el que incluye el desayuno.
2 nuits agréables”
Hôtel bien situé, en face de port of Airlie pour les croisières, à quelques minutes de marche du centre (restaurants, supermarchés, etc.). Très bonne surprise, nous avons été upgradée donnant à la piscine. Appartement tout équipé, propre, lit confortable. Petit déjeuner compris (toasts, céréales, beurre, confiture, yaourt, fruits, café, thé, lait, jus) light mais suffisant.
chambres pas très belles même si assez propre. l'emplacement n'est pas très loin du centre mais ce n'est pas non plus très près.
Hotel agréable ”
le best western colonial est un hôtel à la sortie de airlie beach , mais pas très loin du centre . les chambres de l'étage sont bien agencées , propres et possédent un grand balcon vue sur piscine , et petite échappée mer le resto est intime mais le chef prépare de bons plats la piscine, mérite cepandant, d'être mieux entretenue des branches, feuilles au fond
Hotel propre, grande chambre, mais un peu loin du centre (10 minutes à pieds).
Alles gut, wir waren sehr zufrieden”
