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...

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...

We stayed two nights in Shelly Beach and felt so welcomed in the Motel. We are very grateful for the hosts support regarding our trip to Fraser Island. The appartement was comfortable and large, its location just great. The wireless connection worked great.

This is a fabulous little hotel right across the road from Shelly beach. Our room on the ground floor looked out over the grassed courtyard to the ocean (I imagine the second floor rooms had even better views). The beds were very comfortable and the room was equipped with cooking facilities. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Great location, just a short walk over a road to Shelly beach. If you stay at this hotel you will need transport or use buses to get to town centre. The room was a good size with toaster, fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making. The bed was quite comfortable, so good rest. Had a few issues with the shower flooding, but...

Stayed here for a few nights while visiting Hervey Bay. The room was basic but clean and had everything we wanted. We choose this place because all rooms have a balcony looking at the water. Owners were very friendly and willing to assist us. We will be back!
