Coming from some one that's fussy. This place is excellent. Warm friendly welcome. Spotless clean room, comfortable, and central. Nice power shower, great view. Can't fault this place. Excellent value for money. If coming to Batemans bay, stay here!

Zorba is a gem we found passing through Batemans Bay. Renovated in the last 6-12 months, this motel is well above average. We had a big room on the ground floor that we could walk out, about 20 metres to the water's edge and along the jetty. The sunrise was worth the price of admission. Very clean and well kept,... More

We had a ground floor room with a view over the water. The room had everything we needed, the bed was comfortable and it the owner was very friendly and helpful. The motel was situated in the centre of the town and we walked to a restaurant just up the road for dinner and had breakfast outdoors at a cafe... More

This place is gorgeous. Our waterfront room was everything we needed. Bathroom was clearly newly renovated and very modern. The views from our room were gorgeous and our room and amenities all clean and in impeccable condition. Highly recommend to anyone and will visit again myself

Very central location, friendly staff and nice room. Fresh milk at checkin was a nice touch. Room had nice view over river and was very comfortable. Only negative was the shower where the clear screen walls had some damp problems.

We stayed here for 1 night while driving to Melbourne during Easter long weekend. No other property were willing to accommodate for 1 night. I would give this motel 4 star because of 2 things, the service from the host Andrew and the location. Rooms and particularly bathroom needs upgrade but we could overlook all those because of Andrew's hospitality.

It's a nice motel, stayed at the second floor and left the windows open overnight, which was nice. My only complain is the price is somewhat expensive given the area. I would stay again but might check the other options. There's a nice walk on front.

A modest, family-owned motel right on the water at Bateman's Bay. Some rooms recently fully refurbished, others still need a bathroom update. We stayed in a ground floor Waterfront room for $130/night. It hadn't had the bathroom update yet but was still fine for us. It was great value for money, with comfy new bed, sofa and dining setting.

This is a great budget option. The rooms are spotlessly clean and roomy. The beds are comfortable. You get complimentary tea and coffee in your room, with fresh milk. The staff are friendly and helpful, giving you some great tips on what to see and do in the area. The location is great, right in the middle of the town.... More
