Great Keppel Experience
A beautiful location very close to the mainland with great customer service, and information received, at reception upon arrival. Food at the Bistro was ‘outstanding’, good portions and quite good value. Attitude of some catering staff at times was questionable however the food and atmosphere made up for it. Accommodation (Garden Room) was very basic, as advertised and expected, however the smell from bathroom pipes was a little difficult to take at times. Lots of activities around water sports on site (at cost), lovely walks and idealic beaches. We used Keppel Konnections for the transfer who were professional, on time, friendly and very accommodating. Overall a lovely experience. Feel this getaway is more suited to the younger traveller, young families or those wishing to experience a fun beach day out.

Kellys travels
A 30 minute ferry ride from Rosslyn Bay and you arrive on the sands of Great Keppel Island. They meet you and take your luggage to a storage shed. You then go to hotel reception and register and whether or not your room is ready you can fill in time looking around the area. Got into our room before 12 a nice cabin overlooking the water. Neat and clean it had all we required for a three night stay. We took our own food to cook and eat. No stovetop only a microwave and electric frypan, which was fine. Also a full size fridge. The resort also had a restaurant where you could eat and drink if you didn’t want to bother with cooking. The water was crystal clear and safe swimming. Lots of walking tracks and snorkeling or other water activities for us to do. All in all just sat back and relaxed listened to the silence.

An off the beaten track island holiday that escapes the crowds. Very relaxing atmosphere and bar and bistro service was excellent and great food. Parked at the recommended security car park providing great drop-off and pick up service to the ferry.
