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

The view from balcony is nice. If you are thinking of a nice sea view it is not. You will see the Clyde river and the bridge over that which means the view is opposite to the sea. The room was small for a family with kid. We really struggled to arrange our staffs at the room. The shower was... More

We stopped here as a base for enjoying some of the local scenery. The hotel is well positioned on the bay, with views of both the bay and, in select rooms, the ocean. The rooms are of average size, equipped with coffee and tea making supplies, but lack an elevator to getting to the second and third floors. Not an... More

Just reviewing the Restaurant. Note that this hotel/motel is a pub and has pub style food. The photo's provided on the web site dramatically overstate the reality. The photographed food is not available and the restaurant/bistro is old with stained carpets and tables. Having said that, the staff were incredibly incredibly helpful in trying to make our visit pleasant offering... More

*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
