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

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

The room was clean and great shower. We enjoyed our short stay at the motel. Peta at reception was fantastic and understanding. Only thing is a noisy air con/heater at night that was annoying but hubby informed reception of this and it will be investigated. It did exceed our expectation considering it is a motel and not a five star... More

Stayed 1 night while visiting Merimbula, found the room to be clean, but the decor needs an update, also the shams ( pillow cases ) on the main bed need to be washed every time, as they smelled musty. And just another small gripe, it states that if you do not wash up your cups etc after use, that you... More

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
