Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Anne in the office was helpful and efficent from booking through to check in.
The bay apartments facilities were all clean and well maintained and attractive. Our apartment exceeded expectations for decor, comfort and facilities. The spa on the balcony was the best part of our holiday experience. Would recommend a stay at The Bay apartments.

The property is well located, presents well and has immaculately kept gardens. We were walking distance to some great restaurants. Front of house staff, polite and very helpful. The unit was spacious but a small amount of additional cleaning in the second bathroom was required on arrival - staff were very quick to rectify. The lounge area had exceptionally high ceilings and the accumulating cobwebs need attention. Also, the master bedroom door leading to the balcony wouldn't open - which made the room stuffy. The pedestal fan provided was tacky and took up unnecessary space. Overall, the Bay Apartments offered the quiet getaway we were after and we had a pleasant stay. I would recommend the Bay Apartments.

Our group had 2 x 3 bedroom apartments and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The apartment was on the corner so it was very light, spacious and well-equipped, and being on the 3rd floor, had lovely views out over the bay.
The booking process was very friendly and efficient and very handy to have 2 car spots per apartment.
Nice pool and spa area, pool was heated to a lovely temperature to swim even in winter.
There are several cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute walk so very handy for after you've been out whale watching.
2 minor annoyances were the sound of the elevator in the 3rd back bedroom (surprisingly loud) and also no blankets supplied in this bedroom - even in the sub-tropics, you still need a blanket in the middle of winter! After a chilly first night I found a spare in the master bedroom so the next couple of nights were more comfortable.

Just back from 4 nights staying at The Bay Apartments and wished we had booked longer. Beautifully clean, modern and quiet apartments located across the road from the beach and within easy walking distance to many local eateries makes stating here so easy.

Not much more to say really – if you want a great place to stay with in Hervey Bay don’t waste time looking elsewhere jut book in at The Bay,

Highly Recommended.

Great apartment for a short break with the family. When we entered we were bowled over by the shear size and of the living/dining/kitchen area. With 5 metre high ceiling and a balcony, I've lived in 2 bedroom flats (garden included) that could have fitted inside the main room! Great view out to see and over to the beach and a nice little pool with spa attached to lounge in when the sun gets too much on the beach. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. The flat was neat clean and had all the amenities needed for a family, TV, DVD player, wifi, all kitchen equipment, towels, bedding etc. And the price, even though over the Christmas period was very reasonable. In fact we stayed in a YHA jail cell on Stradbroke island for the same amount of money!

We had the most relaxing and comfortable stay in your spacious and well-appointed unit overlooking the water. the facilities and the grounds are well maintained, the warm pool and jacuzzi, and having the quiet beach across the road for relaxing swims and walks on the beach made for a most delightful holiday. To top it all off the staff were so gracious and attentive, which included a warm personal welcome re received upon arrival. Thank you for a most wonderful holiday, we will PG be back!

Lovely stay. Stunning views from the balcony. Very clean and tidy. Good location right opposite the beach, close to restaurants, Foodworks within walking distance if you’re desperate otherwise a 5 minute drive to Woolworths or Coles would be less expensive.

Got a 1 bedroom and obviously the room could be opened up to accommodate 2 or even 3 bedrooms as well. The check in on a Sunday was easy, as was the check out, we didn't even speak to anyone other than on the phone and email and it was easy and efficient. The place was clean and spacious, and we had a spa on the verandah which was fantastic. Easy parking underneath as well which was handy. Was clean with great technology and was in a great location for what we wanted to do. Was top of the price range for the area but worth it and the only negative for us was the 9am checkout, we have travelled heaps and have never seen that and even another hour would make a massive difference.

The apartment was wonderful. Fully equipped and very spacious and spotlessly clean.
We had a restful break and loved the Bay Apartments. We will be back. The pool needs a rail at one end for older people to climb out or in more easily. The ladder is too hard for older people.

My wife and I spent 4 nights in The Bay apartments and would highly recommend them. The living, kitchen and dining room was huge and opened up to a large balcony which overlooked the pool and across the road to the beach. The bedrooms at the back were quiet and the bed extremely comfortable. The ensuite was a good size and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was great within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. There was a secure underground parking area and tour groups picked you up outside the apartments.
