I stayed in Bundaberg for a night recently, and decided to stay at the Coral Villa Motor Inn. Having read a few reviews, I booked on their own website to take advantage of the free breakfast. The room was fantastic value! Whilst the rooms are a bit older, they are nowhere near as tired or worn as some of the... More

Yes today they have started on installing the new air conditioners in the Superior Rooms. The next stage will be the gutting of the Superior Rooms and new bathrooms and fixtures going in. This should be finished by the end of November. Yes we did find a builder and he has come from Stanthorpe to do the job. Thank you... More

My husband and I stayed for 1 night. Room was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable. Owners were very helpful, they suggested a club for our evening meal and even rang the courtesy bus for us. Nice outdoor area within the buildings to use for a quiet refreshment in the afternoon. We would stay again.

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

Thank you for your review. This guest was staying with us in March this year, and it is now October. We are gradually renovating our rooms. This can only be done gradually as we are only a small motel and the rooms are in constant use. This room posted was the double standard room. It does have a new shower... 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.
