Made some last minute bookings for the Merimbula Jazz Festival and found the ocean view one of only 2 available for the full period. Very glad I picked this property. The rooms are of a very generous size and the facilities are very fresh for a property of this age. The property was well located and we ended up leaving... More

Had a family room on the upper level near the pool - nice view. No kitchenette but microwave, toaster, crockery, cutlery, etc. were provided and had to wash everything in the bathroom sink which is tricky because it's tiny and there's nowhere to put anything. The motel is old, and looks it, but this didn't bother me. Pro's: Cheap motel... More

Stayed here after booking through wotif - $105 pn for the queen room. Website said "You will love the panoramic views of Merimbula, the beautiful lake views and the magnificent ocean views. Choose one of our modern, spacious, tastefully decorated air-conditioned motel rooms" so was a little miffed to be plonked right under the stairs with no view. No view?... More

Great basic room, with a double and two singles. We didn't have a kitchenette as such, just a microwave and kettle with accompanying crockery - so had to do our washing up in the bathroom sink. Unfortunately it was a little noisy being on a main road into/out of Merimbula and on a hill - where trucks use their brakes!... More

No pampering but clean spacious rooms with a king size bed and two singles, perfect to accommodate a family with kids. Located very close to shops and restaurants, 3 minutes drive to the main beach. Priced 120$ on 23rd December, found it fair.

We stayed here for a short notice, one night, visit over the Easter weekend. We arrived unexpectedly an hour prior to check in which was no problem, the staff were friendly and courteous. Room was as you would expect for this grade of motel with basic amenities and extras. Room was clean and tidy and the shower was good high... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our visit to Merimbula. The motel was easy to find and good value for the money. Our room was a decent size with a good kitchenette which had a sink, kettle, toaster, grill, microwave all packed in to a small space. The room was clean and pleasant enough. We also had views out...

Owners were trying to give there advise on best spots to visit which was very helpful. To room had everything you really need for 2-3 nights and then you may need something a little bigger for a longer period. But, why would you come away to beautiful Merimbula and stay in your room anyway. There is so many beautiful places... More

Room service very poor, cleanliness very basic, just a superficial clean attended each day we were here. Spiders and webs all through room. Only supplied one small bath towel each every three days. One day they refused to clean the room because we hadn't vacated at the time they were ready to clean and yet at some stage during the... More

Owner/manager was extremely rude towards us for no reason, she was very unaccomodating. She refused to service our room because we were not out when she was ready. Earlier we had vacated the room at 10am (as requested in the guest information) but had returned for lunch and the room had not been attended too. At this stage she decided... More
