Meet the Managers

Meet the Managers

Nick and Sharon have been living in Narrabri and working at the Adelong Motel for over 18 months and love the fast pace of the property, its exceptional reputation and the opportunity to meet and bond with travellers from all walks of life.

Nick and Sharon have been working in the motel management industry for over 6 and a half years now but originally come from backgrounds as a beauty therapist and cabinet maker, respectively. They have a 12-year-old son named Mitch and enjoy going camping as a family on their breaks (recently, they spent an amazing week camping on Moreton Island!).

While reasonably new to Narrabri their favourite parts of the region are its perfect mix of stunning natural scenery and charming boutique-lined streets. Personally, they aprreciate the wonderful bushwalking trails through the national parks and the stunning scenery of Sawn Rocks and Mount Kaputar.

Next time you’re staying at Adelong Motel or enjoying a drink and bite to eat at Café Cotton make sure to say hello!

One Year at Sugar Country Motor Inn

One Year at Sugar Country Motor Inn

This June we have celebrated Geoff and Sharlene’s 12-month anniversary as the Property Managers at Sugar Country Motor Inn. Both Geoff and Sharlene are dedicated to providing friendly and quality service for all guests and aim to make Sugar Country a welcoming home-away-from-home whether you are a local, travelling family or busy corporate.

Proud locals themselves, Geoff and Sharlene have been living in Bundaberg since the early 2000s and have recently adopted Harry Houdini, a Pineapple Conure (small South American parrot). They love their Queensland town for its temperate climate, vibrant food culture and exceptional attractions – from the beaches and art galleries, to the Bundaberg Rum Factory and the Mon Repos Turtles there’s always something new they want to experience!

Canecutters Kitchen – our contemporary restaurant – has been a significant addition to Sugar Country Motor Inn. Geoff and Sharlene love the fresh and fun restaurant interior and innovative menu. Being able to provide both comfortable accommodation and exciting dining and function solutions for the Bundaberg region is what ultimately enticed them to join Southern Cross Motel Group.

Next time you’re in Bundaberg, or just happen to be in our area of town, make sure to drop in for a coffee, a meal or a cold beer and say hello!
