    We stayed at Blue Pelican in April 2013. Matt & Linda, who took over the motel in September 2012, gave us a very warm welcome, making us feel comfortable and at home immediately.
    The rooms were spotless.
    A good place to stay; handy to everything in Tweed

    • Gwen & Mike Deare

      Even though we only stayed two nights at the Blue Pelican Motel we found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. They obviously take pride in their establishment as it is exceptionally clean and tidy in all areas. It was good to have free access to WiFi as we were in the area to attend a family function. We were also close to all the facilities for local shopping, restaurants and cafes, and near to Coolangata Airport. We would have no hesitation to stay there again.

    We stayed at the Blue Pelican in April 2013.. We cannot recommend this place enough. It is quite and comfortable with everything you would require including small kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, coffee/tea and toast making facilities. The location is very central with everything a short walk away. There are some great restaurants nearby and a laundromat next door! The Tweed Hospital, Civic centre, river and beach are all close by and within walking distance. The hosts were second to none, Matt and Linda went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and we were very friendlly. Thanks for making our stay wonderful and we hope to stay again! The Simmons family

    • Linda

      Thanks for your kind recommendation. We’d be happy to have you stay anytime.

    Linda and Matt went out of their way to be the best of hosts. Linda picked us up late at night from the Countrylink bus trip from Casino on 9/07/13.
    The room was spotless and in the morning we were given a hearty breakfast. Some people have a commitment to service and provide warmth and genuine help, which we found evident from our first phone contact with Linda.
    Location is great!
    I absolutely recommend the Blue Pelican Motel to anyone coming to this area

  4. I stayed at the Blue Pelican for 3 weeks after coming out of hospital. I was still recovering and the help,graciousness and kindness that Linda and Matthew offered me went beyond my expectations of motel owners. Both my husband and I were out of our usual environment and had no family support. Friends were nearby. Linda and Matthew treated us as if we were their family.

  5. Unexpected Stay

    I would highly recommend this motel for anyone recovering from surgery as it is very close to Tweed Heads Hospital and other amenities. I stayed at the Blue Pelican whilst recovering from unexpected surgery while on holiday in Australia. Matt and Linda were exceptionally kind, gracious and helpful to me and my husband. The assistance we received went beyond the usual scope of motel owners. The motel was quiet, secure and clean. Many thanks Linda and Matthew.

  6. Very kind welcome and comfortable and peaceful stay. When in your region we will choose to stay at the Blue Pelican Motel again.


  7. Emmalee

    The Blue Pelican Motel was exceptionally clean and well presented. During my stay, I was warmly welcomed by Matt & Linda (the owners) and it was a safe and friendly place to stay. Location is central and prices are well priced and extremely fair. Fantastic motel to stay.

    I stayed at the Blue Pelican motel for two weeks whilst working nearby. It was very convenient, clean and comfortable. The owners, Matt and Linda, are really lovely. The motel is very close to the bowling club, hospital and several restaurants, and easy walking distance to the supermarket complex and beach. I really enjoyed my two weeks there and would definitely stay again.

  11. Rodger & Jenny Argent

    We stayed at the Blue Pelican for a week from 20th May, 2014.
    Matt and Linda were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable, very clean, all the facilities you want in room were there.
    The location was excellent, opposite Tweed Head Bowls Club (which was also excellent with good food and plenty of activity), within walking distance of other eating places and very close to bus routes. Room rates were competitive and we are considering returning with a group next year.

  12. Rodger & Jenny Argent

    See above. Also the free Wi Fi was very much appreciated and useful for researching bus routes.

  13. Hi
    We have stayed at the blue pelican in tweed heads 4 times all up and twice since Matt and Linda took over. The rooms are spotless and a majorly important thing to us is the bathrooms which are kept beautifully clean. Matt and Linda are very obliging they are so helpful even though they are busy they will always help you with directions inquiries about local restaurants or anything. I even had to ring them because I had left an important book in our room and they were out for the evening. They were willing to post it to us. No problem at all.
    Room service for brekky spot on time and I was thrilled to find you can get mince on toast the old fashioned kind. Needless to say we ordered it and it was yummy.
    So if you want to stay at a friendly, clean motel close to amenities Stay there you won’t be sorry!

  14. Krys & Eugene

    We stayed at the Blue Pelican in June 2014 for a Bowls Tournament which was very convenient as the Bowling Club was directly across the road. Matt and Linda made our stay very enjoyable, they are both very happy and friendly couple. Our room was quiet, very clean and comfortable. Location is excellent, close to supermarket, shops, restaurants, bus routes and lovely walks to the beach.
    I recommend the Blue Pelican Motel to anyone coming to this area, and we will definitely stay there again when we return to Tweed Head.
    Thank you Matt and Linda.


    We stayed at Blue Pelican Motel for 2 weeks during a stressful time with our son in ICU in TWEED Hospital. The locality, the cleanliness and the helpful friendliness is something we will never forget in this time of stress. Laundromat next door, meals over the road, & hospital within easy walking distance – doctors, chemist and shopping centre all there – no car needed.
    Nothing was a problem to our hosts.
    Thanks again Matt & Linda

  16. Bob and Lindsey Myles

    My wife and I have stayed at the Blue Pelican on three occasions now and can highly recommend the Motel. Linda and Matt are the best of hosts and provide a real personal commitment to their guests. The room are clean and comfortable, the seating is comfortable, a microwave and toaster are supplied together with tea and coffee facilities and the Bowls Club is just across the road. What more could one ask for?

  17. Dwayne & Keri Jeffries

    Our little family of 5 stayed at the Blue Pelican this past weekend for one night. The rooms were small but we had enough room for all of us to sleep comfortably, (with our 3 children in a bunk and single bed.)
    We had no table in our room but one quick mention to Matt and he was only too happy to find us one right away.
    Over all I thought it was a lovely place and look forward to going back for a night away with just the hubby sometime!

  18. Christie

  19. We have stayed at Blue Pelican several times and always find it to be a warm and friendly experience. Linda and Matt provide great service and the rooms are comfortable and spotless. Good location. Very pleasant experience and would recommend you check it out on your next visit. Rates very reasonable.

    We enjoyed our stay in Blue Pelican Motel here in Tweed Heads. The Motel is spotless, very quiet with swimming pool and free Wi-Fi and the Owner: Matt and Linda are very helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for what I like as, very closed to all amenities such as; beaches, Shopping Centres, Tweed Clubs, restaurants and Hungry Jack.
    I would like to stay again when I have time for a break.
    I highly recommend Blue Pelican Motel for Real Excellent Service and Cleanliness!!!!!!

We would recommend this motel to any one lookong for a pleasent place to stay. Thank you
    Matt & Linda and we hope to visit your motel again.

  24. John & Vicki Wright

    We recently stayed for a couple of nights. Matt & Linda are extremely accommodating hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Being confined to a wheelchair, I found the wheelchair accessible room very comfortable. The room was spotlessly clean, the rates are very reasonable. We will stay at the Blue Pelican again the next time we are in Tweed Heads. Thanks Matt & Linda.

  27. Tamara

    Hi! I have to write a comment- I have never felt so welcome- Lee and the staff were just sympathetic and caring as My mum is in the hospital which is just so close-they made me feel so at home. The rooms are spotless and so well appointed- air con, fox tv and wifi and the bed so very comfortable. It is so close to everything at half the price- beautiful pool as well. Don’t stay anywhere else!! The beach is at the end of the street! Highly recommend!

    Perfect place to stay if you’re learning how to dive with your friends as it is conveniently located a very short walk away from the diving school. Its also a walking distance away from Coolangatta where all the good food was! Was really satisfied with the extremely friendly and helpful staff, my friends and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

  31. We received a very warm welcome on arrival, and more importantly the rooms were very clean and tidy. Fantastic location, walking distance to the cafe’s and shops at Coolangatta (10 mins) and even closer to Tweed Heads Mall. Excellant value for money. Would absolutely stay her again, and recommend The Blue Pelican to anyone!!!
