Checked in this afternoon. Nice chat with the manager. Very friendly and approachable. The room is large and clean. Nice decor. There was even space to park the car undercover which is great with the rain up here!! Bed is comfy. Shower is hot. What more do you need. I’m sure l will stay again.


Having stayed at this motel four or five times, I am always impressed by the excellent standard of both the accommodation and service that I find here every time I stay! Thank you Blue Shades! I travel a lot for work all over Queensland and this motel is a stand out for all the right reasons.

We have been staying at the Blue Shades monthly for a year on our visits from Mackay to Brisbane for medical treatment. It is a great country motel, friendly staff, clean and most comfortable rooms and the meals including a great breakfast cant be faulted. We look forward to our monthly visit to Blue Shades.


Very clean and comfortable motel,beds were very comfortable, staff provided a very good breakfast at short notice to our troop train passengers.Very quiet rooms even though on main road,short walk to town.
