*Only reviewing the restaurant* A great location, at the waterfront, also very close to the cinema and to the shops. A nice place, clean and good food with reasonable prices. Check for the day Specials but im sure all there is yummy. I would be back.

Read a lot of reviews saying this place was smelly & dirty & noisy. That was not our experience & it was a Friday night. Room was clean with great views, suggest people ask for room 40 if they want great views. Location is great right in the middle of town.

Mariners offers good value accommodation in the centre of Batemans Bay, connected to the main pub in town. Recent renovations offer modern, clean furnishings, general facilities (hair dryer, kettle, tea/coffee etc.) and TV, and many rooms offer bay views. The bistro offers continental and a la carte breakfast, as well as standard pub fare dinners. Be prepared for hearty food!... More

I was suggested to try the Mariner Hotel Restaurant and Bar. I was not disappointed. Great views over the harbour, an interesting bar keep named Ian, and good conversation with some locals – specifically a gentleman named Bruce. We compared notes on cultures, had a question and answer session on things, and talked a great deal about China. I was... More

We stayed 1 night while on a motorcycling tour of the South Coast. Secure undercover parking. Our room (30) was very private with a fantastic view of the bay. Spacious, quiet and clean room. New linen. Would definitely stay there again.

The room was clean, had a great view of the bay but completely stunk. When we spoke to the reception about this we were told that they were aware of the problem and didn't usually like to put guests in that room. I wasn't very impressed as we were paying guests and they didn't mind charging us the same as... More

Stayed two nights in waterfront room. Room was basic motel standard but clean and tidy, good air con and bathroom. Good beds. Balcony overlooking water is great. Good outside deck of main bar to view the bay is also great. It's a motel, but the views, good size of upper priced rooms and the convenient in town location make it... More

Stayed here overnight in January 2014. Nice and clean motel with a great view. Being joined to a pub we thought it would be noisy but it wasn't too bad. A little expensive for what it is but we did stay in holiday season so only to be expected really. The bistro attached to the motel has nice food and... More

Basic hotel with a great view, a bit of a sleepy town not much open when we got there. Bar in the hotel seemed to be a local haunt does sell food. Ok for an overnight stay room had a smell when you went in but looks like a refurb is going on at the moment.

Thank you for your feedback on Mariners Waterfront Hotel & Motel. Batemans Bay is a small piece of untouched paradise on the quiet South Coast of New South Wales. We renovated 50% of the accommodation rooms recently and will be looking into doing the rest in the coming future. Both tourist and local enjoy the comfort of the Bistro/Bar and... More
