A hotel that is in a good position for you to wander in to town. The rooms are clean, neatly finished and bright. What makes it though is the friendliness of the staff, the receptionist was very, very helpfull.

I stayed there a couple of nights for business. The rooms are tidy, comfortable and quiet, with a glimpse of the water. I had a table to work at that is actually near a powerpoint which is nice. The bathrooms could do with an update & car park is a little bit of a squeeze.

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. We do get a lot of business travellers staying with us because we offer special rates with cooked breakfasts and also include a mini bar token. The Free Wifi is also an attraction and the fact that we are walking distance to town and the clubs so getting dinner is... More

This Motor Inn was a wonderful surprise from the start and end of our stay. The receptionist was warm, friendly and helpful. Loved the fact that the free wifi password was on the key to the room for ease of access. Our room was bright, clean and very comfortable with two TVs and a kitchenette. The motel is in easy... More

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

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
