Tin Can Bay Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We came up to Tin Can Bay as we had spent a week with our Grandchildren at the Gold Coast, and as I had heard about Tin Can Bay so much by a friend who was travelling around Australia in her motor home, we wanted to visit and see for ourselves. We enjoyed our couple of days we had at the motel, and had excellent service from Duncan and Cassandra. Their knowledge of what to see and do in the area also contributed to a grand couple of days. The motel room was well equipped with everything you could need. It is certainly hard to leave and go back down south to the icy mornings around the Canberra area.

We stayed in the motel for two nights after returning back to Kyogle from Hervey Bay. We found the motel excellent and Duncan & Cassandra very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay at Tin Can Bay Motel next time we are up that way.

We were originally heading to a theme park with the kids as the weather had cleared and being the school holidays, everyone else was heading there too. So instead we decided on some fishing and exploring so headed to Tin Can Bay. Tin Can Bay Motel was the choice and we were not disappointed! I highly recommend this motel as it is a very comfortable place to stay and there is so much for the kids to do from the parks to the beach. We will be back. Thank you.

Room Tip: Any room here will not disappoint!

We stayed in the motel 2 weeks and really enjoyed our time there, we found there is a lot to do in the area, dolphin feeding, chasing the crabs at low tide with Rupert, Rainbow Beach, Carlo Sand Blow, or just walking/biking along the bay. The room is very spacious, clean and bright with big TV. Duncan lent us an electric pan so we could cook every meal in the kitchen. Ask Cassandra and Duncan for the best place to have a nice burger or fish and chips ! Rupert is a real joy to have around and Cassandra and Duncan are caring hosts.

Cassandra, Duncan and Rupert were excellent hosts, providing us with helpful tips and advice. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The self catered breakfast was good also.
Flossie, our dog, enjoyed the walks along the nearby bayside, which was teeming with birdlife.

We booked this motel on Tripadvisor advice and were not disappointed. Cassandra and Duncan are excellent hosts. The motel allows for self-catering which we did for breakfast only. Cassandra ensured we knew of the eateries and attractions of the area. She booked a day tour for us to Fraser Island and this was an experience to remember for all the right reasons. It is an excellent motel for those on a budget.
