I spent the night here last night as I am with my husband on his business trip around the South Coast. We also have our 2 children with us. On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Antoinette and then her husband showed us the gorgeous lorikeets before helping us bring the suitcases upstairs. We booked a room that had split... More

Thank you both for staying with us and for your very kind review. We have recently replaced most of our furniture and the new pillow-top mattresses make a huge difference to guest comfort. The Lorikeets can be a bit noisy however, it is such a joy to watch their antics and provides a great photo opportunity for local and overseas... More

The kitchenette consists of a sink, kettle, microwave and toaster. So we cooked our eggs and bacon downstairs on the BBQ, which was very clean.... More

Thank you for your remarks on your stay with us. Yes, Merimbula is a great place for walks and there is always something going on. Sorry about the boat taking up so much space at least they were quiet and considerate of other guests. Wi-Fi was working well last weekend so don't know what the issue was. Our Wi-Fi is... More

I travel through Merimbula about once a year and have stayed at this motel several times in the past.

This is a decent motel and good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff, nice and clean facitilties and rooms. Overall not an extraordinary experience compared to some of the best places we stayed during our Australia trip, but quite good as a stopover place for us.

I was in the region for work and this motel was booked for me so I didn't know what I was going to get. It spacious, clean and the service was great. The lady at the front desk was cheerful and helpful. I recommend this as an affordable motel.

A very nice motel for a one night stopover in Merimbula. The owners were friendly and welcoming, the room clean and comfortable, and we especially enjoyed feeling the rainbow lorikeets in the morning. We would definitely stay again if ever back in town.

A beautiful queen bedroom with a spa and convenient to everything. The room was good but a few small issues that require some maintenance were brought to the attention. The owner thanked us and will be remedied. The plantings around the hotel is commendable. A fruit bowl in reception was thoughtful.

Hello Sue, Thank you for completing the Trip Advisor review. It was very courteous of you to bring these minor points to my attention personally. Speaking directly to the owner about an issue is always the best method of getting your message across, and often there maybe extenuating circumstance.
