I can't fault the Ramada!

The Ramada really was a class act from start to finish. Location was really close to the airport which is handy. The marina, Boat Club and whale watching jetty was also only a short walk away. Stayed there for a short getaway from Sydney and was impressed with the service of the staff at all hours (mainly young staff too!). They were helpful in recommending tours and activities. On the first day we went whale watching and the second day hired (free of charge) some bikes from the resort for all day as the area includes the best bike tracks I have encountered along the water with great views, and out to the 800 metre pier. Followed that up with the heated spa and a great seafood dinner at the restaurant Smokey Joe's which also included a local singer. The buffet breakfast each morning was a real highlight with the quality of the food rivaling 5-star hotels in Sydney CBD I have stayed at. The King suite was large and modern with a substantial living room with arm chair and sofa bed, separate King-sized bedroom, full kitchen and dining area, bathroom with spa/shower/laundry, and fenced private courtyard with direct access to the dual central pool area and heated spa. There is lift access from the ground floor for heavy luggage. Did the Fraser Island tour which I recommend. Had room service a few nights which again was really good quality. Thank you Ramada Hervey Bay for a great experience, I aim to return!
