Can't rate this place highly enough. Owners very helpful, sorted out our trip to Fraser Island and good advice about where to eat / walks. Room lovely with homely touches, everything you need. Quiet and peaceful with the beach across the road. Really good value for money and would recommend.

This was a great little motel. We were made to feel very welcome on checking in. The rooms are quiet, clean and very comfortable with a few little touches to make them feel homely. A good location with a beach just across the road.

We were looking for a cheap and cheerful room to overnight on our trip from Cairns to Caloundra. We certainly found it at Shelley Beach Motel; so accomodating, friendly, and it felt like we were staying at grandma's. The rooms were exceptionally clean and there was room out the front or back for kids to kick a ball around -...

Older building with renovated rooms. Room was large with queen and single bed as well as 2 seater lounge for 2 people. Bathroom had enough space although odd design with curtain rather than door. Kitchenette with microwave and fridge with crockery and cutlery provided. Well kept and clean. We arrived about 7.00pm and latish arrival no problem to staff who...

We spent 3 nights at the Shelly Beach Motel in a first floor room that had a small balcony with views out across Hervey Bay. The room was very clean and well equipped, with a recently refurbished bathroom and toilet. This is an older style motel, but obviously well cared for with some nice family touches in the room. Walking...
