We booked via a regular on line booking agency, but on arrival we were told there was no info re this. However the duty manager ensured we were well looked after and made us most welcome. I must admit that when i first saw the complex from the road i was a little unsure that my selection was good, as... More

We have to admit, we are regular visitors to the "Mariner's", as it called locally. We regularly do lunch Mondays, as it is our day off. We cruise up, grab a (complimentary) paper, order any one of the Specials (around 8 options) off the wide ranging menu, decide whether to sit inside, or outside, both covering the excellent, and sensational...

This hotel was clean and comfortable with the most stunning view from our balcony and from the deck by the bar area, looking out to the bay and the river across a green lawn. Stairs up to the 3rd level could be difficult for the elderly. The Mariners is right in town with restaurants/shopping just out the door.

This motel is located right on the waterfront in the centre of Bateman's Bay. I had a very comfortable room with a large balcony overlooking the bay. Unfortunately there was a problem with the Air Con and this was fixed on my last day of 3. The hotel did actually offer another room but it is always a nuisance already... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 1 night in a Superior queen room. The room was immaculate and we could not fault the cleanliness. We had a lovely water View. My daughter is a house maid for a 5 star motel in Canberra and she said she found Mariners immaculate. The grounds are well kept and the location is... More

We stayed here for 1 night. We liked it. Spacious room with good beds. The best time here is early morning were you can enjoy breakfast (with good coffee) and enjoy the view. (Free) parking in front if the hotel.

Good location is not everything. This motel needs a lot of work. Dirty and worn off room. Terrible smell of some chemicals inside the room. See view combined with children play area and noise. Open pool a bit biger than a bathtub with mould signs below water level clearly visible. Defenitly not something to recomend even for one night.

During a work assignment in October we spent one night at Mariners Waterfront Hotel & Motel. We arrived late and left early, but from the early start we saw a beautiful sunrise over the water. Good location, the room was ok, simple and clean.

Maybe not your first choice when in Batemans Bay but definitely worth a stop. We visited the hotel for lunch on a weekend. They have a large dining area (enter to the right of the motel reception) with great views of the river mouth. It's a bistro, with some good pub food. They have the usual steaks, chicken & fish...

We stayed two nights and comparing to may other motels (i.e. cooma, jinadbyne, newcastle, fosters) I found the price of the room is quiet higher than the quality of the room. FIrstly the room size is very small including bathroom and spcially the shower corner. The water stream from the shower corner is very slow. The balcony feels nice to... More
