I stayed here for 3 days and although the accommodation wasn't absolutely pristine (there are signs of a recession in Eden with many of the motels out of business) it was comfortable and the manager was incredibly helpful with the accommodation and with local information. It makes a difference to have a welcoming and helpful owner/manager - I can't help... More

A friendly welcome on arrival and a much appreciated cool drink was a great way to start our 2 night stay. Our lovely hosts gave us a run down on the town and the best places to visit and stop for a bite to eat. Our family room was relatively cheap but it was clean, spacious and basically had everything... More

Marie warmly welcomed us on arrival, and was happy to chat. Thè units are well appointed, and the complimentary continental breakfast was good and plentiful. Thè only criticism is the bed was uncomfortable, and the curtains need some sort of blackout to stop the morning sun. When the restaurant is reopened this will be a great place to stay, and... More

We stopped by and grabbed a room last minute direct. What a lovely friendly welcome we received. The room was basic but was very clean and included everything you might need including a fridge microwave kettle stove . We were pleasantly surprised to enjoy a home prepared continental breakfast included in the tariff. Definitely a good place to stay. Bed... More

We stayed here on our way from Sydney to Melbourne. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. Although the room was basic, it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The continental breakfast was a nice bonus as we didn't realise it was included. The cost was very reasonable. The only comment I would make is that the bed... More

Staff were really welcoming and friendly. The room was very basic and I'm not sure that it was great value for money compared to another place we stayed in town but it certainly was fine for a night. The bed was a bit firm for my liking and the pillows could do with an update. Free breakfast is a great... More

Clean, free breakfast was good of toast and cereal. Hot plates and microwave handy. Now for the bad stuff curtains did not close properly had to get owner to fix them, also curtains that thin your woken up early because of the amount of light coming in. Advertising pool and spa but neither operational and probably will not be for... More

We stayed two nights and were very satisfied with the value of the motel. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend for that budget trip away. We were very surprised to learn that breakfast was also included.

Stayed at Blue Marlin en route to Batemans Bay from Melbourne. Very comfortable beds and room was really clean. The motel is in a really convenient spot, being close to highway yet there was no highway traffic noise. Enjoyed a morning stroll along the Curalo Lake boardwalk that is just across the road from the motel. Many thanks to the... More

New owners who are very keen to refurbish rooms. Even without this they are comfortable budget rooms with plenty of equipment for those who choose to self cater. Owner is eager to please and went out of her way to assist. Pool currently not operating but a great gym for those so inclined. The restaurant may be operational later in... More
