Yongala Lodge by The Strand
Very Good8.0
The location is great. Very close to the strand. Hotel is old and funky but we were in an addition that appeared newer. Only things we were not thrilled with were the pool looked a bit cloudy an uninviting and there was no fan in the bathroom so they had screens over the windows that could not be closed. It was very hot and humid there so we either had to keep the ac cranking all the time to try and cool the bathroom or keep the door shut and swelter while using the bathroom. Aron was a delightful hostess and was very accommodating. Overall loved our stay there.

Hard to get better value
No frills and excellent value- great location, quiet and has a nice pool. With Lilly at the reception we felt really welcome and well looked after.

Staff friendly motel not enjoyable
The service was happy. The pool fence was locked on Saturday so we couldn't swim. The fridge had been turned off before we got into the room and our food was no good. Staff replaced food following day. The one dryer provided was taken up with staff using it for motel cleaning. Our room was right next to a smoking area and people were standing outside our window smoking, smoke came into the room at midnight. The pipes made banging noises during the night. It took the toilet about twenty minutes to refill after flushing, during the night that was noisy. The fan was noisy during the night when placed on no.3 setting. Understaffed.
