Bruce & Terrie, Thankyou. My family have been coming to Merimbula for many years to visit grandparents. As my family has grown we have out-grown the grandparents home, & as a result we have had to find more suitable accommodation elsewhere. We will definitely be back to stay at the Pelican Inn Motel. Room - Spotless, Comfortable, everything we needed.... More

Arrived in Merimbula with no prior booking. The friendly manager welcomed us and he upgraded the room that we had agreed to, so we had a view. That was impressive along with the information and maps he provided along with recommendations of good places to eat. Our room was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities that one comes...

Stayed here for one night, rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Bruce the owner was very accommodating and a great guide to the area. Very well located near shops, supermarket, restaurants and cinema. Would stay again next time we visit.

Immaculately clean, very comfortable beds, beautiful clean fresh linen. I love the triple sheeting idea. Super soft towels etc all in immaculate condition. Air conditioners are very quiet. Warm friendly service once again provided by Bruce, Terrie, Brayden & Jacob, Noting is to much trouble. The swimming pool is crystal clear, Bar B Que area is spotless, there is a... More

Such friendly and welcoming service! The owner went out of her way to help us find the rural location we were heading to and was exceptionally lovely! The hotel was modern, simple and clean! Will be staying there again!

Good wheelchair accessible bathroom, very clean room, reasonably priced. Close to supermarket and club. Very friendly and helpful owners. Swimming pool looked good, but the weather was a bit cool. I would gladly stay again and would recommend for wheelchair and for anyone.

This Motel looks like it has had a heap of renovations done, the rooms are freshly painted and have new carpet. The beds were super comfy, the kitchen area was well equipped. The owners and staff are really friendly and very helpful. Easy walking distance to restaurant, picture theatre and shopping precinct.

Stayed here for one night coming through for business - like 90% of the motels here it's located on a main road and like several other motels it's a bit old and tired from the outside. The room as other reviewers have noted the room is very clean and the owners are very very helpful and pleasant. But travelling for... More

Great location - handy to the main shops, movie theatre and Club - everything was within walking distance. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are nicely renovated and clean. Stayed in one of the motel's front rooms and didn't have any problem with noise. We had a balcony at the back which was great for leaving the sliding door... More
