Have stayed a couple of times, the rooms are great, clean, tidy and comfortable. Located opps bowls club close to shops, transport or a leisurely walk to the beach. Staff are great, friendly and always willing to help. Easily to recommend, make it a place to stay.

This motel is located opposite the Tweed Heads Bowls Club and is within walking distance of both the local beaches and the shops. The rooms are clean and staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a little overcooked (my poached eggs were hard) and there are better breakfast options close by. Whilst there is free Wi-Fi, which is reasonabley fast,... More

Blue Pelican's location and reviews seemed a good place to stay for a family get-together, even if not the cheapest.. They were welcoming. Upgraded us to a family room so we had a large room; and large bathroom. Basic accommodation but sheets... More

The room was very clean a little outdated but in a very convenient location within walking distance from everything. Surprisingly there was no noise from the main road which was excellent. The room we stayed in was perfect for families, unfortunately it was raining so we didn't use the pool.

Stayed here a few months ago, and finally getting around to writing a few words of praise. The Blue Pelican is certainly not the Hilton, but neither does it pretend to be. Visitors can expect great value for money, comfortable quiet rooms, which is exactly what the BP claims it offers. The location is superb also, with everything at hand... More
