We booked on the below reviews and from looking at the website, we then found out you couldn't walk on the island (we found this from a local not the hotel) and required a 4x4. So we phoned the hotel for advice, we were told that I could get a taxi but they didn't have the number for the only...

Location on the island as well as the rooms are perfectly fine, pity we were not able to finish our meal/drinks in the restaurant and were just bullied away. Last drink was literally pulled out of my hand after a +75AUD spent per person. Not our idea of an evening well spent with friends...

We spent one night here but could easily have stayed much longer! The rooms were really light, clean, and spacious with private decking areas. The beds were really comfy and the room had a fridge and glasses etc. which was useful. Dinner was delicious and afterwards we walked down to sit on the beach and the stars were absolutely amazing....

I loved this place. The website said the accommodation was basic so imagine my delight when I see beautiful wood furniture, a lovely bar and restaurant, and most of all the biggest smile from the Manager during check-in. Rooms had no air-cond rooms were warm, though who cares when you are on Fraser Island, and should be outside anyway. They...

I spent just 1 night in this retreat (I wish I had booked for more nights) with my boyfriend. Everything was included as part of 2days/1night trip with The Discovery Group. The room was huge and really clean and luckily there was no carpet but timber floor. The toilets were in common but they were perfectly clean and brand new....

We stayed here for 2 nights to discover Fraser Island for the first time. The 3 of us really did have a great time exploring the area and staying in this resort made our short vacation even better! The cabin was spacious with a lot of lights coming through the many windows. The bbq area provides a nice spot to...

Stayed as part of a trip through The Discovery Group/G Adventures. My room was beautiful - wood floors, spacious, airy, full of windows. The bed was comfortable,the shower was hot, and it was quiet and peaceful. Outdoor areas are just as lovely as the rooms.

I was on the same girls weekend that Hayley was on, and couldn't fault the retreat one bit! There were 5 girls and our room had 2 single beds and 2 double beds, one in separate room, which would be perfect for families as well! The drinks at the bar were a bit pricey, but we mostly sat on our...

We had lunch there and expected average quality and high prices given how remote this place is. We were amazed that the prices were some of the most reasonable we'd seen across Australia, the food was very good (way above average) and the portions were huge. To top it, service was nice, friendly. A really pleasant surprise.
