We pulled up at Airlie Beach on our way north and found this little gem. Absolutely perfect location, situated in the middle of the main street and also backing onto the lagoon - we were able to walk a few meters out the back gate and jump in for a swim! The staff were so brilliant, very helpful and always...

On the Main Street with views of the lagoon from the room, less than 100 metres away. Same distance to bus stop, Woolworths and less to pubs,tour operators and restaraunts. Cathy at reception is an endless source of information and assistance. Great 6 days, thank you.

Stayed here August 2015 for 1 night. Room on ground floor nicely decorated however the building is quite old. Kitchen cupboard doors were nearly falling off and plumbing was noisy. Exhaust fan in toilet area sounded like a jet was taking off! Wall in toilet was partially unpainted and attention to detail with floor cleaning was not good. The power...

Whitsunday on the Beach is located directly opposite the 2 late late nightclubs in the area, while I dont mind a late night every now and then, I was suprised by just how loud it was til 3am (when i managed to fall asleep). I guess thats not a comment on the motel, just an observation. The upside of this...
