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

The Blue Marlin offers all the amenity you'd expect from a motel and somewhat more. An indoor pool and gym are extras, and although we didn't use them we did check them out. They looked in quite fair condition and very useable. The tariff for our double room was excellent value. It is close to the Highway, but this wasn't... More

CLEAN? Yes. CONVENIENT? Yes. SAFE? Yes. FRIENDLY and HELPFUL? Yes. AFFORDABLE? Yes. ROAD NOISE? No. I chose this motel as a stopover from Melbourne to Sydney. I chose it because of the indoor heated pool and the fact I was travelling with three young children. The pool was excellent and made the stay very relaxing. There were a block of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and was more than happy with the hotel and location for the price we paid. The staff were very friendly and helpful and when I go back to Eden I will stay here again. There is a small indoor pool if you feel like a dip but the beach is not far away. There is... More

We stopped here for one night during a drive from Sydney to Melbourne. We just wanted a clean and comfortable bed and found this motel provided that at a reasonable price. The room and fittings are quite dated and would not qualify as luxurious by any measure but they were adequate, and they staff were very pleasant and helpful .... More

We stayed one night in a family room and was disappointed as the room was musty and tired looking. The carpet was filthy and a health hazard I am sure. The owner was pleasant and helpful. We booked the motor inn because of the indoor heated pool but when we arrived it was empty and out of order. I feel... More
