5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed several nights with my husband, brother and aunt. The owner Douglas and his family couldn't have been more friendly and were extremely helpful in arranging rooms close together at short notice. The rooms were spotless, quiet and bed very comfy with nice bedding. The pool and sauna were a big relief after a long drive. We requested dinner... More

Very friendly owner for whom nothing was too much trouble. Bed very comfortable. Bonus was the fully equipped kitchen which would make the resort a good base for a longer term stay. Helpful advice about places to visit. Did not try pool or gym, but they looked very inviting. Very good value, will be even more so when the new... More

We spent two nights in Eden in our road trip along the coast line. We received maps and lots of tips and recommendation for Eden and... More

The bed itself was very comfortable and like the bathroom was spotlessly clean . There was generous amounts of coffee and... More

Me and my friend stayed here for one night on our way to Sydney. The owner is quite nice and showed us immediately the things to do in Eden. Pretty nice! :) We enjoyed the night and would have stayed at this motel for longer, if we are here for a longer time. Thank you :-) !!

The Blue Marlin was a fantastic motel to stay at. The owner was very friendly and a really nice person to speak to. The motel room was comfortable and very clean, the most important thing you need whilst traveling. We will definitely stay and recommend the Blue Marlin as a great place to stay

We stayed 3 nights and couldn't complain at all. The room was clean and comfortable and the manager went out of his way to make us feel welcome and he gave us great local advice as to where to eat etc. We will definitely stay there again.
