Its hard to explain the vibe of the Shelly Beach Motel, its like old fashioned service used to be. From the moment I pulled into the driveway I felt welcome, nothing was too much trouble. They even changed my booking from upstairs to downstairs with a smile. The rooms are lovely, spacious and with everything you could possibly want, including... More

We had 3 nights in this terrific motel. The location was perfect as we could ride our bikes up and down the esplanade bike paths. We took our brekky onto the beach each day and shared games with other kids on the beach. Restaurants were very close so we could walk or bike. Easy pick up for whale watching. Should... More

Comfortable, roomy with everything you need for a short stay. Friendly staff, quiet location directly opposite the beach although further to walk to local amenities than expected. Upon arriving we were greeted by the lovely owners who offered friendly knowledge of the area and its facilities. Our room was clean and tidy with private balcony overlooking Hervey Bay to the...

This is a motel that thrives because of the sister act of Deb and Tina. Right from the get go we were made to feel at home even though we rocked up at 8pm. This is not your bland motel experience. Deb and Tina's personal touches dot the motel so that you feel you are guests at a lovely dinner... More

We were rescued by this motel after Hervey Bay Motel gave away our rooms. We were a party of twelve, so it was fantastic that Shelley Beach was able to help us out. The rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious with verandas overlooking the bay. It was great to walk across the road and onto the beach. Each room... More

Spent one night as a group of 3 at the Shelly Beach Motel - what amazing service! So friendly, trusting, and accommodating. We had a late check-in and although we hadn't paid yet with credit card, the room key was left for us. Clean spacious room, and although it wasn't styled in the last couple decades, had a very retro... More
