Movie hotel for sale

A GOLD Coast hotel featured in cult movie Muriel's Wedding is on the market.

Favoured by Instagrammers for its pink, retro furnishings and flavour and rock 'n' roll bar. 

ResortBrokers Gold Coast broker Greg James is inviting expressions of interest for The Pink Hotel and Eddies Grub House in Coolangatta.

Eddie's Grub House was formerly a Chinese restaurant that featured in the 1994 film Muriel's Wedding, while The Pink Hotel has attracted guests such as director Baz Luhrmann and musican Davey Lane of Aussie band You Am I.

James says properties of this calibre and historical value - The Pink Hotel opened in 1963 as The Ocean View Motel and was restored to its retro glory in 208 - are incredibly rare. While no official records of this property exist before the 1960s, it is believed it opened as early as the 40s.

"This iconic business, along Coolangattas main streets, boasts 17 individually decorated rooms in a mix of Scandinavian and mid-century style," James says.
