The unit seems to be partly refreshed (flat screen TV, new(ish) paint), but still looks worn. The bathroom was the oldest I’ve had in eight Queensland accommodations (similar price range) and the worst shower head of them all. The unit was generally clean with a few stains (which probably won’t come off anymore). The fridge was constantly making noise, so... More

You get what you pay for in the end. The owners were friendly and helpful but were selling up to retire which may explain why the rooms were a bit drab. The area had recently been hit by the cyclone and the floods and was housing a few local families awaiting repairs albeit the hotel had escaped any damage. This... More

We note that this review is from over 12 months ago just after the massive floods. Since then we are happy to say that all the rooms have been given a "fresher" look. Even though we are moving on it doesn't mean we are being complacent, we put 100% effort into every room every day as do our wonderful housekeepers. More

Marilyn and Tony were lovely however if your looking for privacy and quiet...forget it. Whilst the rooms are very clean, the air conditioners are the ancient box type that sound like generators so using at night is impossible, even the fans are rickety and click all night. When they service the rooms they turn everything off even the fan on... More

The bed was comfortable. I loved the alfresco eating, and communal area. Tony's cooking was delicious. Marilyn was always available for a chat and advise. They even allowed me to shelter my bike in a secure area. The motel is very handy to everything, in fact walking distance. I can't say anything about cost as my work is paying but... More

Want a break from cooking or eating out? Tony does a lovely fish poached in coconut cream on a Friday evening, it is very different to your usual fried fish. Most evenings we put on a home cooked corporate meal if requested. Long stays like yours are not uncommon at our motel. Some persons have stayed with us for up... More

I was a bit concerned about staying in this motel after reading some of the reviews but it is indeed great value and whilst yes, the rooms are a bit tired, they are spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

Stayed at the Coral Villa for a night stop-over while driving up the Bruce Highway. Tony and Marilyn were great hosts and treated us to a free drink on arrival for booking on-line.
