The hotel is good priced however average. The basics is there, comfortable bed, clean toilets however decor feels a bit outdated- nothing special. The lady at the reception is very friendly and easy to deal with. However, just one issue is when my Partner asked a gentleman in the reception the best place to eat, he recommended that we can...

We spent 3 nights at OVMI , Di and Brian were very friendly and informative hosts. The room we had we couldn't fault, from comfy bed to good shower pressure, kitchenette was all we needed for our stay. Would definitely recommend the Ocean View Motor Inn at Merimbula..=)

We stayed one night on business and found the accommodation to be very comfortable. Check in was easy and friendly. The one outstanding feature of this motel for us was the bed. We don't need a firm bed and were pleasantly surprised to find the bed was soft but supportive. Location is good we walked down to the town centre... More

It is particularly rewarding when guests take time in their busy schedules to enlighten us as to what made their stay enjoyable. We feel that we have a select position as we are not far from the CBD we are able to see the town,lake and ocean, surrounded by beautiful birds and it is a very quiet area. Thank you... More

Nice room, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. A good pool...water temperature was ideal. Much more affordable than some of the other motels. Suggest phoning direct as this can be cheaper than advertised rates on comparison websites.

Firstly, out of all the places I have ever stayed it has the best water pressure in the shower that I have ever experienced. Its like having a spa bath standing up! Apart from that there is nothing to fault. The place is clean, comfortable. Good sized rooms. I stayed 5 nights. Not really suitable for self catering as there... More

Hi Viiking, Thank you for your review we are pleased that your stay was pleasant and comfortable. It is also that we are greatful to you for pointing out that the pool area was not obvious and it shows that we must add signage for the pool location, which is favoured by my many guests because of its secluded area....

We stayed for one night on our way up the coast towards Sydney. We had a room on the ground floor with a partial view of the ocean. It must be the smallest 'premium queen room' (as described by our travel agent) that we've ever stopped in. The interior bare bricks gave it an unwelcoming, gloomy and dated feel. The... More
