WINE, dine and stay in the heart of a popular precinct with pristine harbour views in affordable accommodation at the Manly Marina Cove Motel.

Manly Marina Cove Motel resident manager Sue Petersen said besides a Four Star AAA rating guests will reside where famous athletes once stayed.  

"We hosted the Scottish and Wales cycling teams during the Commonwealth Games and they chose to stay with us as well as the commentators and film crew while they celebrated within the local community," she said.

"The Scottish team had the chef from the Edinburgh Hilton fly over and cooked for them while they stayed at our short-term accommodation.  

"We have hosted a lot of athletes from cycling, swimming, shooting and yachting too." 

Ms Petersen said the motel resides within the unique grounds of the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) and it boasts a waterfront licence bar, cafe, coffee shop and also a function facility.

"People love the quiet and secure location and it's within walking distance of the cafes," she said. 

"A lot of people have commented on the cleanliness which received a 99.6 per cent for cleanliness in AAA rating review recently.

"There has been a recent refurbishment of first level rooms which are light and airy set in a quiet secure location. 

"We will continue improving our facilities, maintaining our rating and excelling in customer service.

"In addition, work with RQYS in promoting our unique combined  facilities as one of the best function, conference venues in the area and nationally.

"We are close to the port in Brisbane and people can enjoy a quiet ride to Hemnant." 

The boutique accommodation offers corporate, leisure, conference and sporting opportunities to visitors in Brisbane’s bayside region.
