Guest Reviews

On a recent visit to the Gold Coast, we discovered the Blue Heron Motel – and what a find! This motel is walking distance to beautiful beach, cafes and easily accessible to all that the Gold Coast has to offer. There have been recent renovations and I was very impressed – so clean and tidy. It really feels brand new. Lovely little touches in the room like plants and nice wall art. The pool was sparkling with huge sun lounges and BBQ area looked very inviting. Sadly as soon as we arrived our daughter fell ill and we had to return home immediately – The Blue Heron will be our next stop on the Gold Coast for sure.

My boyfriend and I referred to this property as our “home away from home”. When we arrived at the property we were greeted with nothing but smiles and treated like family. The room looked just like the photos, crisp and clean. There is a beautiful pool area in the centre of the motel equipped with a grill and beautiful lounge chairs. The staff are extremely friendly and are helpful in offering which beaches are worth it (from a locals perspective) and give you an inside scoop of where the best local spots to eat are; they even provide an abundance of coupons for things to do and places to eat in the reception. The location of the motel was perfect- 200m from a beautiful beach, close to delicious restaurants and only a short drive to broadbeach or surfers paradise. ALSO: If you’re worried about hearing any noise from the highway, don’t be. It is unexpectedly quiet. My boyfriend and I were only able to hear louder vehicles at the one off times they drove by, and even then the noise that we heard was slight.

We had a lovely stay from the moment we checked in, to checking out. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we even got to choose our room as a few were vacant that night. Pool was a lovely touch, nice and warm and salt water. Had a great sleep, despite being on a busy road you cannot hear a thing at night. In the morning we took the short walk down to the beach which was beautiful. Would love to stay again.


Well the owner Madam Andrea and his family, that includes her daughther Ms Alexandra, her cute little son Peter and her husband that we called him sir or boss…they are such a nice people, very warm and honest people. honestly we have no trouble with our stay in this beautiful Motel during our 3 days holiday in Gold Coast, Australia. We even received a mug with THE BLUE HERON MOTEL stated in it as a gift on our last day. Madam Andrea recommended a few restaurant which is 5 minutes walk away from her motel and frankly speaking the restaurant provides good tasty food. Madam Andrea is such a sweet person that she took her time to guide us as to where the city best view and best places we can go for the evening and also warned us to stay away from the Red Water during the day time. Basically everything is beautiful in Mermaid Beach. The people the place the beaches and of course our warm clean cosy motel…THE BLUE HERON MOTEL. Thank you to Madam Andrea and her lovely family for providing us with a sweet adorable awesome memory in Gold Coast Australia.


Wow, what a place! Definitely a few cuts above most of the other offerings along the GCH!

 We’ll be back!

My wife and I took a drive down the coast last weekend for an overnight break. Spotted a freshly refurbished motel with the vacancy sign on so pulled in and booked in for 2 nights. Very stylish and tasteful, comfy beds, all the amenities you could ever want, and close to everything. We were going to Burleigh but glad we didn’t. We will be back in the new year. Thank you Andrea and Karl.

This is a well run small hotel run by a charming family. They go out of their way to make guests welcome. The pool & garden area are very attractive and well maintained. I particularly appreciated the free bicicycles, as this allowed me to explore local beaches etc without a car. Rooms are spacious and well equipped, very comfortable and clean bright decor.

Rose from Scotland

Absolutely loved our stay here. The free bikes and beach towels were an amazing bonus. Also great to have free parking. The room was clean and spacious. Facilities were new and great. Will most definitely stay here next time we’re in Gold Coast. Great location with beach and restaurants very close.


One of the best (if not the best) motels I’ve ever stayed at. Spotlessly clean, everything seems to be very new, and the staff is very friendly and likeable.


We stayed here a week ago and it is beautiful. I will definitely come back here again. If you are looking for accommodation that is family friendly, close to the shops and absolutely spotlessly clean this is where you need to stay. Andrea was so friendly and could not do enough for us. Thank you for our lovely stay.

Rooms we stayed in were very well presented and very clean. Service from staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Five minutes walking distance to small shopping area with Night Owl, basic eateries and liquor outlet. Surfside buses bus stop close by on both sides of Gold Coast Highway. Beach a leisurely 5 min walk with no main roads to cross. Drinking water in the reception area a bonus upon arrival on a very warm afternoon !

Damian Roache

The best motel I have ever stayed. Great location, very lovely and welcoming host couple.

The rooms are modern, spacious and very clean. Bed is very comfortable. I’m pleasantly surprised by the various high-quality amenities provided in the room. 

There’s pool, BBQ, free WiFi, free parking. Absolutely enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend to others.
