Sorry but not my cup of tea. The receptionist was super friendly. The historical part would be the queenslander at the front - looks like an old pub, however there is nothing historical about the accommodation in the brick buildings at the back. Fortunately at the last minute I decided not to wash my hair in the shower. Good job I didn't as there was no hairdryer and I would have turned up at a meeting looking like no tomorrow. No shower gel etc. Unforgivable for me was that the smoke alarm was removed from its location and was sitting on the side bench and ceiling fan made an annoying noise. Having said all that, there are not many accommodation options close to the Strand for $100 per night, so it might be a case of you get what you pay for.

Nice quiet atmosphere! Loved the pool and the convenience of being a 2min walk to the strand/waterpark. Plenty of cafes, takeaways shops, bus stops and Coles within a few minutes walk. Definitely recommend staying at Yongala.
