The Pink Hotel in Coolangatta is an insta-famous beach side hotel situated right on the border between Queensland and New South Wales (on the Queensland side).

Previously known as the Coolangatta Ocean View Motel, this property was rebranded (and refurbished) a few years ago to stand as it does today as one of the cutest, quirkiest and hip hotels in all of the Gold Coast (or all of Queensland, or all of Australia).

I stayed at The Pink Hotel Coolangatta in September 2020 on a mid-week work trip. I stayed in the King Room; however, there are are 17 rooms on offer including suites.

Each room comes with their own flamingo robes.

The owners have done a terrific job in ensuring that every inch of this hotel is an attraction and photo opportunity in its own right.

This extends from the cotton candy pink and white theme across the hotel…

And quirky extras sprinkled throughout…

Not to mention, you can head on up to the Santeria Rooftop to enjoy a beverage on the day beds overlooking the ocean…

Or sneak on through to The Pink Hotel’s hidden piano bar – also known as The Janitor’s Closet. Perhaps one of the coolest and quirkiest things about this hotel (intrigued? Click here for more information).

The QLD/NSW border is literally just THERE by the way. Which was very interesting when I visited in 2020 during the QLD border closure (hence the blocked road next to the border).

When you’ve finished taking in every square inch of The Pink Hotel, its location is another bonus. Located oceanside, just a quick jump across the road you’ll find yourself at Coolangatta Beach and well within walking distance of Greenmount Beach, Snapper Rocks and where you can enjoy a peaceful beach side stroll to Point Danger Lookout to view across into NSW.

In addition, you’re also close to a range of eating out options along the Coolangatta esplanade or next door at Eddie’s Grub House who are the same owners as The Pink Hotel.
