Stayed for one night when travelling from Sydney to Melbourne. Very friendly and efficient reception staff. Motel is a very short walk from the main town centre. Rooms are a little bit dated but we found them comfortable, clean and great value for the area. Happy to recommend.

I have stayed at this motel a couple of times when travelling for business in Merimbula. I have always found the rooms to be comfortable and clean during my stays. The staff are very welcoming and can assist with any request - including late evening check-in if necessary. Will definitely return here if staying in Merimbula.

This motel which has some water views is great value and provides all the amenities you require for a very pleasant stay. The room is very comfortable with plenty of room, which also included a single bed which would be handy for children or a parent. Queen bed was very comfortable, and the room had a view over the inground... More

I happily recommend this motel. I love the separate sitting and sleeping areas together with some cooking facilities which make for a very relaxed stay. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and very conveniently situated for all the town amenities and clubs.

Thank you for your feedback. We acknowledge there has been an issue with mould in some shower basins in a number of rooms. Unfortunately this is not surface mould and can't be simply removed with spray. It is actually embedded in the grout and silicon and is due to an issue with damp in some of the walls. We have...

We recently stayed at Sapphire Waters en route to Sydney from Melbourne with our children aged 9 and 6. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms spacious and clean, the beds comfy. The hotel is quiet but well located, a short walk to everything. We would happily stay here again if passing through Merimbula.

I highly recommend this motor inn to any Travellers. It offers big rooms with separate sleeping and lounging areas, and also a fully equipped kitchen area. Small balcony also in the room which is an added benefit. Well located motor inn and very reasonably priced. Thank you for helping make my stay enjoyable.

The owner of this motel is friendly and helpful. I stayed here after it being recommended by a friend and I wasn't disappointed. It is very clean and comfortable, the room is configured virtually into two separate areas which provides good privacy if sharing or you have kids. The shower was a ripper with fantastic coverage. Bed was clean and... More

We only stayed one night at Sapphire Waters but wished we stayed longer as its a great little place. Finding the Motor Inn was easy and as we were staying on the ground floor you simply park your car right in front of your room as there was plenty of parks. The Motor Inn is also close to the main...
