“Outstanding Customer Service”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

We were in Bowen for work and needed some shelter from the impending cyclone when Chris & Tara helped us out at very short notice. Our circumstances meant we needed to be flexible and they fixed every issue.

In between town and beaches so perfect location to explore Bowen or just as a stopover.

Had 1 night in a twin room. Extremely clean and the linen was fresh, clean and crisp. Would recommend a stay here. The single bed was on wheels which we like as we had a 2 yr old do we put all the beds together to prevent falling out. When we moved the single we where shocked to see how clean it all was behind it. Thankyou for the quality stay.

A clean and neat motel. All you need after a long days drive. The motel is centrally located and within a couple of minutes drive to restruants and major shopping centres. Staff were friendly and helpful and keen to answer any questions.

My father and I stayed at the Pearly She'll Motel last year and had a great nights sleep. The owners are very friendly and took care of us even when we needed to check in later in the afternoon. Would definitely stay again.

The Pearly Shell is a great little motel and the owners/manager always give friendly service. The rooms are nice and the location is handy to Bowen and the highway. PayTV is a nice bonus given the low cost of the room. I am a repeat customer and will be back again.

After many years travelling Australia and parts of the World for work the one thing that greatly diminished over the years is good old fashioed service values. I can't remember that last time I stayed somewhere as friendly as The Pearly Shell. It was fantastic value for money and incredibly clean. The managers Chris and Tara were so down to Earth and nothing was a problem for them, and despite the down turn in tourist numbers on the East Coast they were positive and made us feel at home. So well done guys and we will definately be back.
