Ok, so this hotel is pretty tired but in a great location !! We paid an extra $28 to have a water view room which was lovely . Good sized bathroom and rooms that was spotless ! Little things such as an old hall stand that had no top on it ( obviously broken ) still in the hall way... More

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
