My better half and I stayed here over the New Year period for 4 nights. We were greeted by the lovely Malcolm who was continuously helpful throughout our stay. Our room was lovely, clean and very cosy/comfortable. The room did not have air conditioning but there was a ceiling fan that was just as good. The bed was nice, you... More

Well, it's not the newest Motel, the room aren't very big. No A/C, no free Wifi. Except for that, you have everything you need (fridge, microwave, toaster, TV), it's clean and kinda cosy. Bed was very comfy. Location is ok, still in walking distance to the shops/restaurants/beach.The owners are very friendly and helpful. For one person and one night it's... More

The room has all the basics, which is what we needed. The host is friendly and we were greeted by a warm welcome. It meets all the expectation I would expect from a motel. It would have been much nicer if the room came with a fan.

The owner is very friendly, room was clean and comfortable for two. In a great location, only a short walk down to town centre. Shower was average, it was either too hot or too cold. Overall it was good value for money!

Friendly service. Clean and comfortable room. Quiet location. Nothing too flash but good value for the price. Water pressure from the shower head needs improving. Otherwise was a satisfactory stay. Would recommend for travellers needing a quick stopover on their journey.

This motel was a very cosy place. It had clean sheets, towels and the bathroom was clean. It has only a fan, I wonder what the ambience will be in mid summer, as there is no A/C. They also have microwave, small fridge, hot water jug and tea coffee . Surprisingly in these days they only have a small TV.... More

Merimbula Gardens Motel is a budget motel but I found everything I needed for a week long stay. It was clean, comfortable and, as an aside, has better shower pressure than 5-star hotels I have stayed in making a great start to your morning. Above all the proprietor, Malcolm, will genuinely make you feel very welcome and will help you... More

Stayed for one night with my partner. Room was clean, average, all the things you need for a good night stay except no shampoo or conditioner. Downer was their wasn't a main light in our room so you either had to open up curtains or if you're a woman and use make up, bring some form of extra lighting at... More

Budget Motel usually means 1970s or 1980s building with various attempts to "modernise". That appears to be the case with this Motel,unfortunately they have not achieved modern means of heating or cooling. The Electric Strip Heater above the bed might be effective but the Ceiling Fan although cooling was too noisy for a person to sleep. Proprietors of these old... More
