We had a very pleasant 3 night Golf Break and stayed at the Summerhill Motor Inn. Clean, comfortable, serviceable and the kitchenette is very useful for Breakfast and Sundowner snacks. Alan, the Owner, was more than accommodating and made us very, very welcome indeed. Lovely, friendly staff (you don't get that everywhere, do you?) and as I say - VERY... More

I have stayed at a number of motels in Merimbula but I have always come back to Summerhill Motor Inn. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the service at reception is warm and friendly. We recently stayed in the double room with the spa and loved it, very roomy with a nice comfortable bed. Also love that it... More

We stayed in the spa room. Was a really large room with a really nice outside area. A good location, nice and close to allot of restaurants and a nice 20-30 minute walk to the beach. The room was nice and clean. The bed was terrible, it was really hard.

The motel is located close to the centre of town so most spots are within walking distance. Kitchenette is an added bonus and is well equipped with utensils etc. Great table and chairs outside my...

We stayed in the Executive Spa Room on the 2nd floor in the corner for 2 nights. It was a huge room with lounge area, dining area, kitchenette, big bathroom and a large balcony. The motor inn is in a great location with easy walking distance to restaurants, cafes and shops. Can't complain about anything except perhaps that I wasn't... More

Fantastic place that is run by a very friendly couple. The welcome is very warm and extremely professional but with that great feel of familiarity that makes you feel as though you are visiting old friends. The service was great with a great breakfast delivered hot and on time to a very neat and comfortable room. The place is very... More
