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.

Matt and his girls made us most welcome when we finally arrived at Emeraldine Inn after a hectic evening of trying to navigate with a smart-phone which refused to navigate. Our room was clean, cool, and exceptionally comfortable in every regard and greatly appreciated in our exhausted condition. We had safe, well lit, and convenient parking. Awoke in what has to be one of the most beautiful spots in the world to wonderful bird music. Our stay here was much too short and I wish we'd had more time to fully explore the spectacular natural setting. Highly recommend.

This is such a wonderful place to stay. Rooms are spacious , quiet and surrounded by lovely gardens. The staff were really helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. We didnt have a car but bus service was very good and it was just over 20 minutes to the beautiful sandy beach. Only wish we had booked more than 3 nights.

This was an unexpected delight in Hervey Bay that exceeded my expectations. It turned out to be charming! It is set in a gorgeous extensive garden and the lodgings made for a uniquely Australian experience. There were birds in the morning, a deck attached to room, a huge well appointed clean and quiet room with all amenities provided to be able to have coffee and cook breakfast if you so choose. The host went above and beyond to introduce tours for Fraser Island, store my car was I was away for one night, give directions and assist me with all the other questions someone new to Hervey Bay would have even though I arrived late. Can't recommend this accommodation enough!

Stayed here for 6 weeks while on a contract, Matt and Dani are very friendly, extremely approachable, and amazing hosts! Great communication, nothing ever felt like an issue, and when the wifi issues started arising they were very quick and proactive about finding and implementing solutions, which was very much appreciated. Love the environment, feels like they have their own oasis with being surrounded by so much greenery, brings a very calming and peaceful vibe to the stay. Would definitely recommend and hope to return some day.

We have been regulars here for some time but this was our first visit with the present owners. They were very friendly and helpful. We were able to enjoy time in the pool with our Hervey Bay dwelling grandchildren. While we have never had a problem with cleanliness before these folk have taken it up a notch. It felt like the unit had been steam cleaned. Lovely! We can recommend Emeraldine as a comfortable and welcoming stay in Hervey Bay.

Rooms were a great size. The pool/bbq area was very nice. Thank you to Dani and her partner for taking care of us and letting us have a late check out.

Motel style hotel with easy parking in front of each unit. Very large well equipped rooms with both a double and single bed as well as sofa and table and chairs. Kitchen with all the essentials and spacious and clean en suite. The location is quiet and not central but convenient if you have a car to reach all areas of Herbert Bay and the airport. Yong who also runs a travel agency was fantastic. She organised a very fairly priced package including overnight on the unmissable Lady Elliot Island and our trip to Fraser Island with 4WD hire, barge and excellent accommodation. Everything was perfect.

We had been planning our Australia trip for over 3 years after Covid delays but even with 5 weeks of travelling to choose from - we all agree that our Lady Elliot Island was the absolute highlight that we will never forget. Our eco-lodge was simple but clean, comfortable and peaceful and only a few steps from the sea. The island was idyllic and the staff so friendly. We loved the sunset drinks on the beach each day and we were able to have a special cake and nibbles evening for my husband's birthday. The snorkelling was fantastic - couldn't believe wall the things we saw. Manta rays, loads of Turtles who happily let us scratch their shells (as the staff told us they enjoyed this!). One HUGE stingray and a reef shark which were exciting. We loved the range of fish and choices of snorkelling on the reef whenever you fancied walking off the beach. The food each day was plentiful and even our picky eater found something she liked. She also loved the Buffet Bandit birds (as they were known)! Our son got to sit up front in the plane ride over which he will never forget. The colours of the sea and reef will stay with us forever. Thank you so much for all your help planning this visit. It was absolutely out of this world.

We celebrated our 60th birthdays with our daughter on Lady Elliot. Peace and quiet without having your head in technology. You can watch sunrise and sunset on this small island. Snorkeling and diving experience is a must. Swimming with sea turtles, lots of wildlife and plenty of whales frolicking. Staff on the island are very friendly and helpful. Yong from Emeraldene was fantastic with organizing our special getaway
