very disappointed and glad we are only here for one night. Booked this in August for January travel but still could not get two rooms next to each other - not suitable when travelling with kids! Our room absolute stank with a very strong chemical odour which meant a thumping headache within minutes and night of no sleep. When I... More

Unfortunately many people book in or before August for our very busy peak season here in Merimbula. We were unable to get your rooms side by side but had just one room in-between instead. I note that there was no mention of children in your request and indeed your booking through a booking site listed just 2 Adults in each... More

Central location, supermarket across the road and short walk to numerous places to eat. Lisa (owner)was very welcoming and helpful. Nice size room (we booked queen room) and very comfy bed. Would definitely stay there again when we next visit Merimbula. Thanks Lisa ! If you come off season for more than a couple of nights ask Lisa for a... More

Older motel - Lisa and her team make you feel welcome - a budget priced motel. Have stayed here numerous times - always neat- tidy and clean. Willing to take on buses - we fund raise for the Royal Children's Hospital - Victoria each year and stay here for three days at a time. Now branching into having families stay... More

The South Seas is well located in the middle of Merimbula. It doesn't have an ocean view but it does have clean, well maintained and budget rooms. It also has a large BBQ area and heated pool. Worth a visit for a night or two.

Here now. We booked 3 nights our first stay and loving every minute. Staff are just lovely and so central to everything would make this our choice every time we visit this beautiful place. It's an older hotel but very comfortable, a friend recommended to us and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend also.

Travel a lot for business and leisure and for the price of the budget room considering how clean, neat, well presented, location and great bed, fantastic value. Reception staff very professional and passionate, will stay again and not hesitate to recommend. Fact that it has a microwave and basics like a toaster is a bonus.

I stayed one night on my way through to Canberra with a group of friends. The reception was friendly and courteous and had my room key waiting on my arrival. The room was adequate but had certainly seen better days with paint peeling and a very worn bench top. The blinds were broken so that let in a fair bit... More

Hi Mark, Thanks for your feedback and I am sorry your stay was marred. I was unaware that the blind was broken and have already ordered a new blind to replace said blind :). The bench top in this does have a funny painted finish however on inspection of the room I could find no flaking paint. We are renovating... More
