Located off the Main Street in Batemans Bay the entrance looked a bit industrial, the units were located around a court yard. We had a ground floor apartment and parked outside. The small terrace out back had a fantastic view over the river with all the activity and this was great to sit out having breakfast and enjoying the scenery.... More

Zorba is a 1970's type of motel but has had a bit of a recent 'facelift' to bring it up to scratch. If you get a room with a balcony, you will have a great view over the river/bay. If you end up with a ground floor room, you can walk out to the backyard and onto the river walk.... More

We stayed here for a two night stopover on the way to Melbourne [3rooms] Hosts very nice. Rooms were top class, Two upstairs one down. Only problem was humping large suitcases up the stairs. Rooms are clean and bright and lovely view of the river. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby although the shops close early and open... More

We enjoyed our stay at Zorba Motel very much, for the second time. Our room number 8, was upstairs, it was clean, comfortable and quiet, with a balcony and views of the river, yachts, birds and much more. The location is perfect with restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful. We highly recommend... More

Stayed overnight on the way down to Melbourne, found the motel to be very clean quiet and comfortable so booked again for the trip home a week later. Loved the view from the balcony and room overlooking the water. Despite being full there was no noise whatsoever so we had two very restful nights sleep.

We only stayed one night but would have liked to stay longer. Our room was spotless and full of light, a decent and clean bathroom, a little outside seating area looking out to the river and very nice and helpfull hosts. It is in the middle of the main shopping area and restaurants that are on the riverside walk. Great... More

Stayed here on a Saturday night and were very pleased with our choice. This clean quiet and comfortable family run motel is the oldest in Batemans Bay but has been recently renovated. The view over the Clyde River is wonderful and it is very centrally located. The bathroom was very nice and the kitchenette was fine too. We asked for... More

We stayed overnight at Batemans Bay a few months ago, and chose Zorba Motel based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Our room looked over the back grassed area straight out to the water. The rooms are clean and ours, room number 6, was quite big as it was at the end of the corridor and had the width... More

The view alone is worth coming for. There is absolutely nothing to criticise about this family run motel. Batemans Bay is well worth a visit and the Zorba is right in the middle. We appreciated the large comfortable room, the parking in front of the room and the tranquil setting.
