My family and friends hired out this motel for my wedding recently and could not have been happier. The rooms were clean and tidy and had a real homely feel. Yes this is an older Motel but it is value for money on the beach! I have stayed all over Australia and no where can you get a room for... More

When you intend to stay in Hervey Bay, consider Shelly... More

We spent a few days here after Christmas and had a "whale" of a time (Hervey Bay is best known for its whale watching and access to beautiful Fraser Island). The motel is an older style unit, which was very comfortable, semi selfcontained (everything but a cooktop!), full size fridge, elec frypan, crockery etc as well as use of a... More
