The best service in a country motel I have experienced. A complimentary snack pack and drinks were received on our arrival. The rooms were very spacious, modern and well-appointed. Cooked breakfasts tasty, hot and VERY reasonably priced. Delivered by the hard-working and ever-smiling lady in reception, for whom nothing was a problem. One of the reasons we opted for this...

Whilst not in the centre of Merimbula there is lots to like about this motel, particularly when considering what is on offer in other towns up and down the far south coast of NSW. The rooms are huge and have a kitchenette for anyone who wants to set up for longer than a night. The beds are big and comfy... More

This is an excellent motel with every facility you could want. The room was spacious with a small kitchenette and good sized bathroom, with an actual bath ! As we are on a travelling trip having the laundry facility was really useful. As the motel is a distance outside the town being able to order a full cooked breakfast was... More

Stayed here one night, and as an overnight stop it is okay. The internet is now free but it is only for a limited usage, okay if you want to access your e mails but for anything else you soon run out of allowance and then charges apply which I refuse to pay for what I consider to be a... More

Simple acommodations, but very clean. The city of Merimbula is very small, but a nice place to sleep when driving from Sydney to the south. Very close to the Inn there is a golf course where we were able to see kangoroos just after sunset. Very quiet place, comfortable beds. A little over priced, but it seemed to be the... More

Room was nice and big. Cleanliness pretty good. The hotel grounds were untidy and pool dirty. Reception staff not very well presented. Hotel lacked pride in its presentation. Was expecting higher standards for nearly $200 per night. Was ok.
