The room was clean, with stunning views of the Bay. Comfortable bed. Had delicious dinner at the Soldiers' Club over the road. Reception was efficient and helpful. I didn't find that the rooms were very dated at all - main thing for me is location and cleanliness and, for me, it was delivered.

We stayed a couple of nights in a spa suite. I had high expectations, as we had paid a rate which would get you a 5 star room in a capital city. In the end it all came down to the view. While the room was immaculately clean, it was very dated. But the view was incredible. Any time of... More

Stayed here recently for work. Attempted to stay next door at Bay Breeze boutique place. Yes much more my style, however they were booked out. I did go and have a look for future reference and whilst these places share the same view over the water they could not have been more different. The Bay Breeze has been extensively and... More

We had a room one the first floor overlooking the road, while it was a little noisy during the day at night there was nearly no cars on the road and we found there was minimal noise even when we had the door open. The rooms were a little older I suppose maybe 80's. None the Less they were clean... More

I stayed here last weekend with my partner in the water view spa suite. The view was lovely, we slept with the blinds open so we could see the view all night! Lovely big spa in the room and perfect location! Will be back next time we visit batemans bay

We booked a "Deluxe" room, and their web photos all showed lovely views across the river and harbour. However, on arrival we were given a room overlooking a busy road. We had to pay an extra $40 a night to get the room on their web site (with a view). The Hotel really shows its' age (1980's I guess) and... More

We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the water. The room was basic but very comfortable. Although the motor inn is looking a little tired, it is in a great location, staff are friendly and price was OK.

We stayed at The Esplanade Motel for a weekend break. We booked this through Wotif.com and had a suite with a spa overlooking the beautiful Clyde River. The room was clean and tidy on arrival. The furnishings in the lounge room were clean with a sofa bed and a table and chairs. The bedroom was separate with a very comfortable... More

Unfortunately we were given room 209 which faces the highway instead of the bay. We could put up with the traffic noise until about 2am when the neighbours came home and decided to have a bath. Once the bath was full we then got to enjoy the sound of their spa right next to our bed. When they finally went... More

This motel looked the pick of accommodation along the esplanade and we knew it would be an enjoyable stay because of the very friendly and helpful people in reception. The deal-maker for us was its affiliation with the Services Club across the road where we could enjoy good value dining, live music and dancing. Like all the other motels in... More
