This was a great little motel. Was renovated and is clean. Met all our expectations and would recomend this motel for couples and those with children. Motel had direct access to the beach and esplanada. Quick access for children. Great swimming area for young children as well as adults. Lots of local reataurants as well as food stores to purchase...

Our family of 5 stayed just over a week at Whitsunday on the Beach and we would highly recommend it. The location is amazing, right in the middle of all the action - the Lagoon is literally out of the back door - no street to cross - direct access. Shops, eateries, nightclubs, everything is close and easy to access....

We stayed for three nights. Parked the car and didn't get back into it until ready to leave. Rooms are a great price, basic but very roomy. A little kitchenette which is a bonus. Great restaurants next door or just down the road. Pub across the road, but when glass doors closed didn't hear a thing. Walk out the back...

Located on the high street but backs on to Lido. Room large and comfortable with separate bedroom. Parking is tight but fine. Only down side the large patio glass doors at the front are not very "private" so curtains are closed most of time. The Lady at front desk was very pleasant and helpful. We used the laundry that was...

Loved the position of this hotel. Comfortable and very central. Rooms have all you need and are spacious. Staff are very helpful. The beds are a bit soft but otherwise all good and I would stay here again

We originally booked 2 nights but extended for an extra night as there is so much to do. The staff were great (especially Annie) location is perfect, the rooms are spacious and well equipped. Off street parking behind a security gate is a bonus. Good value for money. Basic but very comfortable and clean.

Just spent two nights at Whitsunday on the Beach. From the very first minute the staff were so friendly and helpful. The room while not modern was large and clean and had all the amenities needed. The location was also perfect with the lagoon just outside the back fence. Again thank you to the staff for being so lovely.

The owners and staff are fantastic and very friendly. The rooms are large and comfortable, with all the amenities you need away from home. In the heart of Airlie, you can't get a better spot with value for money.

These basic self contained apartments are clean but basic. They have all you need for a self catered holiday. The location is fabulous but the building itself doesn't have a great lot of charm. The staff were friendly.

A perfect spacious room for four persons with cooking possibilities. Extremly central located on the main road (but not noisy) and just beside the Lagoon and near to everything. Very good aircondition.
