We stayed at this motel on our way to a wedding on the south coast and were very impressed, and sad to be in and out so quickly! The room was spacious and comfortable, and the balcony had a great view down to Merimbula. Enjoyed watching the birds over a cup of coffee in the morning and will definitely go... More

Owners at this small but comfortable motel are wonderful, I've strayed a couple of times over the past 11 years but prefer to stay here for the great service, spectacular views, great breakfasts made with eggs collected that morning usually, make sure to book as it gets busy

We were very pleased with this motel it was clean and bright and the views were beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised as the place was of the old style but the rooms were comfortable and had everything we needed. The lovely big sliding door onto the balcony gave the whole place a spacious and open feel to it. A great... More

What a magnificent experience to gaze out over the view below, and soar with the flocks of birds. The owners of this motel are wildlife lovers and volunteer for WIRES. So if you like birdlife, this is the place for you! Every room has a balcony so you sit out and enjoy the vista.

I used The Kingfisher to break up a journey from Sydney to Melbourne and return. This proved to be a great decision. Room 14 was spacious and well equipped and fitted my purposes exactly. The breakfast is served in the room and there is a good choice. The view from the balcony of the rooms is superb as it overlooks... More

Arrived in the dark and must admit to being a bit apprehensive. Gt keys and proceeded to Room 14 which seemed a bit dark,dingy and old. However, first impressions belied the reality of what was a very good find. Yes, the room is very tired but it ahd all we could have wished for. Indeed we could have taken a... More

After travelling on the road all day, we were delighted to discover this motel. The rooms were very clean, accommodating in relation to all needs for cooking etc., big windows with a magnificent view. The owners are very friendly and suggested we check the room before buying - nothing to worry about though. The breakfast was reasonably priced, arrived on... More

Stayed here for one night. The motel is not new but the room was large and clean with Queen sized bed. All the normal inclusions Air Conditioning large TV, tea and coffee making facilities. Bonus was the fantastic views from the Balcony (and the room with the curtains open) to the town the inlet and out to sea. Lovely touch... More

Recently stayed here three nights and it was a great decision. The rooms were spotless, spacious and airy - thanks to a lovely balcony with a fantastic view both day and night of Merimbula itself and of the inlet to the right, sea straight ahead. It certainly isn't uber-stylish or recently built, however it had everything we could need or... More
