Beautifully renovated, the rooms are great. Bed was the other let down, a bit hard and pillows were very soft. Close to the beach and easy to get to.

My partner and I rolled up at the Blue Heron on a Friday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised with the neat and tidy queen room we had for the night. Our host Karl and staff were extremely helpful and great to deal with, with Karl going above and beyond to help me with some of my requests. I get the impression the Blue Heron is a family owned and run motel, and it is reflected in the fantastic level of service extended. In short - clean, neat and well priced accomodation on the Gold Coast......thank you Karl.

The room was clean and tidy. Modern and updated. Perhaps a little small for our liking. Possibly just a little (but not too much) overpriced for the size of the room and motel, although this was during the school holiday period so probably ok. But overall, a nice little spot to stay. Great location, close to the beach, right on the highway and also within walking distance of a few shops and a Japanese restaurant.

The rooms and grounds are immaculate - everything works! There are thoughtful touches in the rooms eg basic crockery & cutlery, toaster, microwave. We thought it was good value for money.

Interior design of the room was lovely. Very clean & great bathroom. The motel felt like a little community with the pool at the centre of the complex. Nicely landscaped and a great outdoor eating area. My kids loved it as much as me!

Friendliness of the staff. They've accomodated our request with ease and the place just make you feel you're on holidays. Walking distance to some cafes, restaurant and convenience store. There is no cooking facility in the room but there is a public barbeque on site and croquery is provided
