I was looking forward to our little trip to Bermagui but that excitement soon famished when i was welcomed by Carol. I immediately felt unwelcome and intimidated. Mixed signals and miscommunication made me believe they didn't want us to stay at the motel in the first place and said whatever they could to get us out.. Overall, a very uncomfortable... More

It is always difficult to respond to a negative review when only one side of an issue is stated & our 4 star Motel standards are threatened. In this instance, when first enquiry by telephone was made about bedding for 4, the person was advised that our rooms do not have beds for 4 people. Booking was still made for... More

My wife and I stayed here recently and we were very glad we did. The room we were in (16) was very clean with quality fittings. There was a frigde, micowave and Tea and Coffee. The room was very comfortable and was in a very convenient location. We enjoyed a very nice breakfast each morning over looking the water at... More

We have previously stayed at this motel several years ago, and always wanted to return. This trip we were delighted to find the same owner/managers and the same immaculately kept motel. These days it is only to often you return to a venue and find it changed, generally for the worst. Harbourview goes against this trend andthis has to be... More

It is always a pleasure to receive such a kind review from return guests and happy ones.

This is our 2nd time here. Location, service and rooms are close to perfect for a small south coast town. Close to beach, clubs and eateries. Just across the road. Once again highly recommended and thank you again.

We're regular visitors to Bermagui and have stayed at the Harbourview a few times over the past few years. It's in a lovely setting close to the harbour, across the road from Fisherman's Wharf, next to the country club, a 3 minute walk to town and it backs onto the golf course. Surrounded by beautiful gardens (the roses were in... More

Your appreciation of the effort that is put into providing a good quality accommodation is greatly appreciated & made obvious by your return visits to us. Our cleaners are our most precious commodity and deserve lots of credit for the praise we have received over the many years. Good training & constant daily inspection of work done by our employees,... More

Approximately 3 years ago there were 2 of us (males) in separate rooms on a 3 day business trip. I am a Maori Samoan with visible tribal tattoos on my arms. We arrived at the motel. At first, the manager (lady) looked at us and asked that we not mess the rooms up and assumed we were there to "party".... More

False accusations are difficult to prove on social media. Files are kept on any unusual happenings with guests that stay at our motel. Hiding behind a trip advisor comment is cowardly especially 3 years after the proposed event. I believe you have the wrong motel as I am not racial in any shape or form. My husband has Koori blood...

Must admit was a bit worried when I read previous review about people who ride bikes, but the management couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly, the room itself was quite large and well set out and spotlessly clean, highly recommend this motel

Thank you very much for your positive review. It is not easy in the accommodation industry to please everyone but we do try to make all our guests feel welcomed and comfortable during their stay. It also goes to show that some written comments are not necessarily justified. We hope that on your return visit your stay is just as... More

Overall, this was one of the cleanest and tidiest places I have stayed in Australia. Although I have a tripadvisor account, I seldom feel inspired to post a review, but this motel is deserving of one. The lady at the front desk was friendly and also gave me some helpful instructions to get around town. They have taken great care... More

We were fortunate enough to buy the land and start building the Motel from the beginning, giving us the advantage of designing the Motel to suite our budget initially & continuing improvements as was necessary. Keeping up to AAA 4 star standard is not an easy feat when dealing with guests who do not have the same appreciation as people... More

Sometimes things are not always as they appear.

The rooms are large - almost cavernous - and reached via stairs, so that a view of the harbor - at a distance - is in fact possible. The reception was friendly, and we were guided around the room's features at some length. A small kitchenette, with refrigerator and sink but minus cooking range, was appreciated. A small back balcony... More
