We had read all the rave reviews on Tripadvisor, but I have to say that we were a bit disappointed by the reality of the Coral Villa Motel.
Marilyn greeted us with great warmth and she had arranged our tour of Mon Repos, the turtle hatchery. She also gave us directions and information for the Bundaberg Distillery Tour.
But our room was a bit tired and out of date. Peeling paint on the ceiling of the bathroom, it really was very shabby. The motel is right on the main road, so noise was a problem. The internet connection worked just fine. The kitchenette is OK but pretty marginally equipped.
We spent only one night at the Coral Villa, so we did not have an opportunity to use the facilities. Perhaps we would have appreciated it more. I am sorry that we did not think about reserving accomodations at nearby Bargara. It's on the beach and has a much livelier vibe to the city.
