New owners for Motel Quirindi
Marilyn and Barry Kearney have been in the hotel business since 1994 when they purchased their first management rights ‘off the plan’.
Over the years they purchased two more management rights; the famous Coolum Caprice in Coolum Beach and then “The Point” at Bargara Beach, that they managed with partners for the next eight years.
When they retired, they moved to Umbria Italy where they enjoyed the ‘good life’ for 14 years, during which time they kept theirr ‘hand in’ by managing holiday properties in Italy for friends. Time passed, they returned to Australia and even though they had been retired for some time, they decided last year to go back into business.
Searching specifically for a motel that needed some energy and TLC to bring it back to its former glory, they contacted David Head of Tourism Brokers who introduced us to the Quirindi Motel in Quirindi (65 kms south of Tamworth).
The motel was under management and in desperate need of some attention. The Kearneys are now settling in and thank David for his tenacity, negotiating skills and perseverance for bringing about what was a difficult and somewhat frustrating settlement.
