EDUCATE: Yourself on Australia’s coolest converted motels.

The word ‘motel’ has long been synonymous with the daggier things in life – from downtrodden brown brick buildings to ‘80s polyester bead spreads. This last year, however, has seen a huge surge in the ‘motel makeover’ trend, with some of Australia’s most unlikely roadside motor inns being transformed into slick and sustainable boutique stays. We’re all for it. Infused with just the right amount of nostalgia, here’s a list our favourites on the east coast for your next mid summer escape.

1. Sun Seeker, Byron Bay
Last year, Jess and Dave Frid reimagined one of Byron’s oldest motels into contemporary boutique accomodation imbued with the spirit of holiday nostalgia. Complete with thoughtfully crafted rooms, California-style bungalows and a peaceful poolside lounge area, this beachside oasis is sustainably designed at every touchpoint – from recycled materials to solar power, composting and beyond. The perfect blend of retro charm and designer sophistication, Sun Seeker is Byron Bay accomodation at its most considered.

2. Mysa Motel, Palm Beach
Bringing a dose of Palm Springs to the heart of the Gold Coast, this destination motel transports its guests back to another era through pastel tones, breeze block walls, neon signs and towering palms. Each of the seven rooms has its own theme (we love ‘The Merillo’) and features beautifully restored vintage furniture and all the necessary luxuries. After a lazy day at the beach, enjoy martinis by the magnesium mineral pool in true Slim Aarons style.

3. KYAH, The Blue Mountains
Nestled amongst the world heritage-listed Blue Mountains, Kyah Boutique Hotel is an 80s motel-turned-elegant retreat designed to connect guests to the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Split across the three wings, the stylish rooms feature plush beds, minimalist finishes and minibars stocked with sustainable goodies. Idyllic grounds reveal tennis courts, a produce garden and a Japanese cherry Blossom tree, while the in-house restaurant, Blaq, offers locally sourced dishes create by award-winning chef Mate Herceg.

4. Astor, Albury
For many of us, Albury brings to mind dreary overnight pitstops on the drive up to Sydney. But who says layover can’t be a little bit luxe? Formerly a stock standard 1960s motor inn, Astor Albury has been lovingly restored into a Palm Springs-inspired destination offering everything you could ever need on your travels. As much a hospitality hot spot as it is a motel, The Astor has its own vibrant, 28-beer-tap bar with a menu of gourmet pub meals, chic interiors and zesty cocktails.

5. Motel Molly
Set in the charming surf town of Mollymook on NSW’s breathtaking Shoalhaven region, Motel Molly is another recently converted beauty. Stylish and serene with a decidedly playful spirit, this generously restored accomodation balances a relaxed coastal feel with a hint of high design. Underpinned by a genuine sense of craftsmanship, here, the beauty is in the finer details – whether it’s the handmade imported ceramics found in every room or the gorgeous Mediterranean tiling detailing the ensuite vanities. Offering sweeping views of the coastline and a sun-soaked pool area, Motel Molly is the stuff of Australian road trip dreams.

6. Berry View Hotel, Berry
A mid-century marvel in one of NSW’s most beloved country towns, Berry View Hotel is something of a must-visit – especially if you’re road tripping up the coast. Offering mesmerising views of the hinterland and lush garden outlooks, each of the rooms are individually styled with charming little details – providing a personal and quirky accomodation experience. A palette of warm ochre tones ties together the interiors, decor and external design while leaning into the retro vibes.
