A Boutique Gold Coast Motel In the Heart of Mermaid Beach

Voted number 4 in November 2022 as one of the coolest motels in Australia by WOTIF.  Come check it out and see why!

Welcome to the Blue Heron Motel, a family-owned and operated Gold Coast Boutique Motel that’s recently undergone a fantastic makeover. Nestled in the heart of Mermaid Beach, we’re just a stone’s throw away from the beach, restaurants, and supermarkets, offering you the perfect location for your holiday.

At the Blue Heron Motel, your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities. Our rooms, thoughtfully designed for solo travellers, business guests, couples, and groups, exude a relaxed beachside vibe reminiscent of days gone by. We take cleanliness seriously, ensuring your stay is a refreshing one. Our comfortable beds guarantee a great night’s sleep, and our easy check-in process makes your arrival a breeze. Plus, if you’re arriving late, no worries – we offer the convenience of late check-in.

When you’re not out exploring the Gold Coast, you can often find our guests lounging by the pool or unwinding in our cosy gazebo and BBQ area. And when hunger strikes, you’re spoiled for choice with the numerous fantastic cafés and restaurants right at your doorstep.

We’re incredibly proud to share that we hold the esteemed title of #1 in Mermaid Beach on TripAdvisor and have been recognised as one of the Top 5 coolest Motels in all of Australia. Our friendly service is the icing on the cake, ensuring your stay with us is truly memorable.

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.

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.
