Stayed at Shelly Beach Motel on our way to Lady Elliot Island and again on our return. Your hosts Teela and Debbie are warm and welcoming and offer helpful suggestions for your stay. The rooms are themed, we stayed in the "sports room"...tennis racket and cane fishing rod on the wall and a comfy worn nutmeg leather lounge to sit on. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Our room had a queen and a single bed. There are tea facilities, a fridge and microwave and TV. Each room has it's own split system air conditioner but we did not find it necessary to turn it on. A small table and chairs are on the balcony. A cabana with BBQ facilities is available in the large rear garden and the grounds can accomodate the largest of vehicles including boat trailers.
The motel is a level walk to most places...1.5km south to the Hervey Bay pier and 1-1.5km north to good restaurants and cafes at Torquay. The beach is opposite. We walked far more than we would normally due to the level terrain and good walkways along the foreshore park that runs right past the motel.
I would definitely stay here again if in Hervey Bay.
