My husband and I along with our 2 year old daughter stayed at Penguin Mews over the New Years Eve holiday break and we had the most amazing time. Firstly the location is great. We barely used our car all week. We had restaurants, playgrounds, beach, supermarket and shops all a stones throw away. Secondly, the cleanliness of our apartment... More

Let us start by clarifying Penguin Mews has great location on its side. As great as a central Merimbula location can be, actually. You're literally meters from restaurants, shops and the waterfront. And with a parking spot to call your own! The place is also run by people who seem to do a good job and care about their job.... More

Great views of Merimbula Lake. Well laid out with good facilities. Access to top floor was by a steep spiral staircase, difficult, but manger helped with bags. Very friendly staff. Close to the centre of town and next door to the Merimbula RSL Club.

Very comfortable unit but the ones with the best views are up 2 sets of spiral stairs. They should probably let you know this before you check in. Fantastic views however over the Lake and very conveniently situated in town.

You can not beat the location of Penguin Mews! On the lake, meters from main street, shops and restaurants but still in a quiet spot. We spent a long weekend there in a spacious two bedroom apartment, ideal for short and long stays. Upstairs there was a large open kitchen, dinning, lounge area with a balcony and slightly obstructed views... More

Have stayed here twice now and will stay again next year. Last time we stayed in the top one bedroom apartment with the million dollar views. Loved it but the 2 flights of spiral staircase were the compromise for the view. But the manager did carry our suitcases up for us! This year we have stayed in apartment one with... More

My husband & I stayed here last year for one night and were so impressed that this year we chose to stay for 8 nights. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with a brand new kitchen. The kitchen is so well equipped, saucepans, crockery, utensils, dishwasher, microwave etc etc etc. the balcony is huge with views over the lake... More

We stayed for several nights. Initially booked one bedroom apartment but changed after arrival as the one bedroom is way too small, has no privacy as it adjoins the manager's residence and has a shared balcony. View was probably spectacular but I would not felt comfortable using the balcony. Two flights of stairs were external, steep, steel spiral staircase, not... More

We stayed here overnight recently. It is in a fabulous location on Beach Street, with fabulous views over Merimbula Lake. Only about 200 m from the town centre. We were given a large apartment with a huge balcony. The apartment was spotless and even though it was close to the town centre it was very quiet. The apartment managers were... More

Superbly located to the shops/clubs of Merimbula. We had a front townhouse with clear view of the waterfront from the upper floor (living area), clean, well equipped kitchen and flatscreen TV with USB port, handy for those that take their own media to watch. R/C aircon very efficient in heating the upper living area. General furnishing quite basic - the... More
