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...

Wonderful friendly motel. Exceptionally clean and comfortable, very reasonable price, accommodating staff, modern and spacious rooms. I will most definitely stay here again next time on business in Merimbula. Highly recommended to all travelers.

I was passing through Merimbula and stayed for one night. My boyfriend and I were so happy we chose here. The service was delightful! The reception lady gave us restaurant recommendations, told us about discounts we could get and was so very welcoming we didn't want to leave! The accommodation was average but worth the money you paid for. Plus,... More

We chose a superior suite ($165) which had a KS bed, a 2-seater couch, table & chairs, and breakfast utensils. This was a lovely ground floor room with an excellent bed, free Wi-Fi and easy parking outside the unit. The reception staff were helpful and suggested places to dine and sights to see. The motel is within easy walk of... More

Easy access to a quiet motel high on the high with great views over the river. Lots of space in well provisioned rooms. Very friendly staff, especially Peta, and an easy walk to the shops. We'll ve back again next month.

Pretty good accomodation in a good location, about 10 mins walk from the main street / restaurants etc. We stayed in the 'family units' on the ground floor facing the pool; not actually 2 bedrooms, just a large room with the bathroom in the middle forming 2 sleeping areas. Clean and functional, beds good, but water pressure in the showers... More

Thank you for your review. We have looked into the water issue and cleaned the filters and shower head to see if that was the problem. We have had no other issue since then, and we thank you for bringing it to our attention. More

Upon entering our queen room with private balcony I was delighted to see the bed was beautifully made with crisp white bed linen. It was dark when we arrived but the next morning revealed a view from the balcony of the waterways all-be-it partially blocked by trees, we did see the water and boats. The proprietors were wonderful. Both friendly... More
