Very nice Motor Inn, the room was just lovely with great views of Merimbula and the water. Loved how the lounge area was away from the bedroom. Balcony was just perfect, Sunday morning having a cuppa overlooking the bay with the sun shining, what a way to start the day. The room was clean and nicely presented and the shower... More

Spacious accommodation. Very easy to find. We could walk to nearby restaurant for an evening meal. We had a problem with a document which needed signing, scanning and re-emailing to the UK. Carol and her staff helped us big time with this. Lots of shops and facilities at Merimbula unlike most of the surrounding places, Would stay there again.

It was really nice to stay here for 4 nights at the Sapphire Waters Motor Inn - we had a spacious and comfortable room, upstairs with private balcony and a good view across the trees to the lake and ocean in the distance. The staff were very helpful and pleasant - special thankyou to Carol for her expert local knowledge,... More

Great accomodation, very large and clean rooms, great bed, big tv and bathroom with rain-shower. We had a great time at one of the best accomodations we have been visited in Australia. Good location too. The people behind the desk were also very nice and helpfull! Thanks for the lovely stay!

My husband and I stayed here and it was great. After a short taxi ride from the airport to the Sapphire Waters, we were so relieved that we chose to forgo a rental car ($200+ for 2 nights) as the Inn is a short walk away from everything great about Merimbula. The hosts were lovely. There is also a good... More

After the long day driving through the coast we arrived to Merimbula around 9pm - and realized that our planned accommodation was closed. After driving some more blocks around the town, we noticed this one pretty place that happened to be open when most were closed. And there was Carol telling us that we have just what you need :)...

We stumbled across this place when our planned motel was booked out. Very happy we stayed here for a couple of nights. Generous sized apartment with everything you could want. The management here obliviously focus on providing good guest service. Our unit had a lovely balcony at the rear overlooking the pool area, elevated with views of the bay. Fabulous... More

Love staying here. The staff are so friendly and helpful. My whole extended family spent Australia Day 2014 in Merimbula. We had a wonderful day at the beach, then back to the motel where the kids enjoyed the pool. We have a son with special needs and they went out of their way to help us and make sure we... More
