We've just gotten back from a 5 day adventure over at Keppel Island.. What can I say? Joann and all of her staff were amazing.. We stayed at another site, but went back to Keppel Haven Bar and Bistro for breakfast and dinner most nights (because we forgot food).. We felt incredibly spoilt by everyone there and it was great...

We would just like to say thanks to Joanne and her staff for making our stay at Great Keppel so wonderful. Even though we live on a boat, Joanne was more than happy to get supplies we needed over the 6 weeks we were there, and at one stage when we had a lack of water, let us have showers...

Unfortunately I never even made it to Keppel Haven due to the incompetent managers of Keppel Haven. They were more than happy to take my deposit but when I called numerous times asking for details, dates & shops open on the island over the Christmas period, they told me they would email me with all the details. They never did....

This is possibly the most difficult review I have had to write. The island is so beautiful and we most certainly experienced the bushwalks and deserted beaches during our few days stay. There are some amazing sights to be seen and some incredible lookouts. We went on a two or so hour bushwalk and saw the tracks of turtles who...

We where really delighted to discover Keppel Haven as we didnt know that there was anywhere to eat on the island. We made frequent visits for coffee, drinks, breakfast lunches, brunches and dinner, as well as grabbing drinks to go, and taking the oppurtunity to sit on the beach and watch the sun go down. We spent a few nights...

The island is worth seeing, truely beautiful and secluded. But Keppel Haven is a run down mess.. the room appeared to be well cleaned but the dampness of the room gets to your clothes so keep them zipped up. We did have to wait of an hour or so when we got there, which is odd when all the rooms...

Arriving on the Island I strolled to Keppel Haven and was made to wait until a room was ready about an hour or so. The Room was clean but run down taps dripped shower was a wet room with the toilet in there which gets wet when you shower so you track muddy footprints for the rest of your stay....

We stayed in Cabin 11. It was a wonderful holiday. The big resort is still closed and it doesn't matter. We think not having so many people on the island was just the bee's knees. Could have chosen a better time of the year ... very wet. We really enjoyed the 'staff meal nights'. What a great idea! I have...

I do love cabins 10,11,12 of Keppel Haven on Great Keppel island. These cabins nearly drink from the bay waves and bathe in the sunsets. However, a development crisis is upon GKI and the small hotel, backpacker and private holiday venues are struggling. The cabins are basic with bed and bedding, frig, frypan and a shower/toilet . You need a...
