From first phone call to book, through to check in, during stay, to check out everything was handled in a friendly and efficient manner. Stayed three nights in a very comfortable room with lake views from shared verandah. Makings for a very ample continental breakfast delivered to room night before was included in package.

We had 3 nights last week at this motel and it was fantastic. Thankyou Lisa for being friendly and welcoming. The location is great, it was a first time visit for 2 of us but the 3rd person goes to Merimbula a lot and always stays here. What's wrong with besser brick?? Again Lisa thankyou and we will be back.

Having paid a tariff well above it's worth because of Easter rates, I would rate this as an average at best motel. Appears to be the most outdated motel in Merimbula. Location is very good however and our room whilst very small was very clean. Would probably prefer to stay elsewhere next time.

Centrally located just a short walk to shops. A clean Motel, but with dated decor, mostly of Besser brick construction, quite common in seaside buildings of the late 1970s era. Subject to traffic noise & unlucky timing (noisy party goers) which disturbed our sleep through some thin walls. This Motel is a 'get what you pay for' type, nothing special... More

Stayed at this motel recently with a bunch of friends whilst on a short motorbike trip down the South Coast. This is an older style pretty standard motel layout, the rooms aren't big but reasonable in size, we found them to be well maintained as is the whole motel - give the age; they were clean with usual facilities you...

We chose the deluxe twin room for our I night stay after having checked out of a nearby motel which we considered to be below the standard with regard to value for money.The South Seas would be great for a longer stay because of kitchen facilities.

We are on our 2nd stay at this motel within a month! We love it here, especially for the price! Great location, lovely little room, clean and comfortable. Extremely friendly and helpful manager. Great barb-b-que and pool area. We hope to return over and over. We can't fault it! Did I mention the great rates?

I stayed here over the Australia Day long weekend and it was still very nice and quiet. Great location right across the road from the service station and woolworths. Nice pool aswell. The room was nice and clean and had heaps of space. Nice balcony with views of the water. Kitchen was a little out dated and the oven was... More

A good price, a good location if you want to be close to town (walking distance of restaurants), however just an average stay. The most disappointing thing was the lack of hot water in the morning. It was good at night, but barely warm in the morning. This downgraded our stay to just average.
