Arrived in town latish and were concerned about accommodation, mainly as the 'Web indicated most of the places in town were fully booked. Found the Sapphire Waters (said to be booked but not) and we were offered a unit either on the first or second floors. Bottom floor had a small kitchenette whereas top did not. The reasonable cost $125... More

Whilst the staff seem very helpful and friendly, and on a whole the bedding and room surrounding were very clean and well kept, the bathroom does need a revamp. It would really lift the whole appeal of the Motor Inn if the bathrooms were updated. Whilst it seemed fairly clean, I had a peeling bathtub which doesn't seem very appealing... More

I recently stayed here for one night, and had a room on the top floor. The suite was clean and well looked after, but is starting to show it's age. The bathroom tub porcelain was cracking and caulking was discoloured and cracked as well. The large toilet paper holder extended partway over the toilet seat. One has to slide in... More

Good location and pleasant managers. Had units down back ground floor and nice and quiet. Short walk to locations for dinner and continental breakfast ok. Good overnight accommodation at reasonable prices. For overnights i would recommend.

Recently travelled to Merimbula on business, looked up reviews on Trip Advisor and this establishment came up at or near the top, so booked 3 nights stay, arrived later (11:15pm) keys were left out in box as promised, room was plenty big enough for one person and was clean. Breakfast was delivered as promised at 7am by a friendly gentleman.... More

Thank you for posting your review. The toilet holders are cumbersome, and we hope to be renovating the upstairs bathrooms soon. When this happens the toilet roll holders will be the first to go!! We hope to see you again on your next trip to Merimbula. More

Located a short walk from town and all the restaurants, the rooms were clean, comfortable, had a mini bar and 2 televisions but unfortunately when i looked out my back window or sat out on the balcony i was looking into all the neighbours backyards. Not really the most attractive thing. As for the town, well it may have had... More

Comfortable room, friendly and helpful staff who knew the area very well and were able to answer questions on fishing spots, beaches, boat hire and scenic drives. A lovely place to stay. Everything we needed was provided in the room.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. The car parking can be an issue sometimes when some rooms bring 2 cars or boats etc. And we don't know about it until their arrival. As there is a space for all rooms. We hope to see you again on your next visit. More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the internet, as we have upgraded our system to give a faster service. Unfortunately the whole town suffered from poor phone and internet service over the Christmas period. As for the Foxtel all our rooms have 5 sports channels with Sky news and Fox 8. Our executive rooms have movie... More
