Frequently Asked Questions

Guest book information

We are thrilled that you have chosen to stay with us at Echelon Apartments Yeppoon. As we are an environmentally conscious resort, we are moving away from the traditional in-room paper guest information book on how to use things. Instead, we have developed a complete online guide to assist you with everything during you stay!

CLICK HERE to access the book prior to your stay.

This link will assist you with everything you need to know, including information about your arrival, check in, how to use things in your apartment and things you need to know about the area and our building during your stay.

Why should I book direct?

The notion that online travel agents offer the cheapest rates is simply not correct. When booking directly with us you are dealing with our property and our staff (who all live locally) will do the utmost to make your stay the most enjoyable and memorable experience possible. We are also an Australian Owned and Operated local family business, here to help you make the most of your trip to Yeppoon and ensure your accommodation needs are met. Need to make any changes to your booking? We can assure you it is a lot easier to manage your reservation when it has been booked directly with us in the first place.


Do you have a best rate guarantee policy?

We promise if you find a deal for Echelon Apartments for the same amount of nights, dates & room type, simply provide us with a screen shot of the offer and we will match the rate – if not better it if we can!
