We have been to Merimbula many times and have driven past the Robyn's Nest sign but never stayed there. After a glowing report from good friends we gave the place a go for a couple of nights and we were certainly impressed. Clean, very hospitable hosts, great quiet location....yes we liked it sipping a bottle of St Hugo on the... More

We stayed in one of the B & B rooms in the main house. The room was huge. The decor was federation style - quite garish but grew on us. The bed was comfortable. The ensuite bathroom and separate toilet fantastic. TV reception/sound was a bit dodgy but watching TV was not a priority - if it is there are... More

We stayed a night in a Spa villa. Very peaceful. Had a wonderful massage and the chocolates were much appreciated. Breakfast including my G/F breakfast was nothing short of awesome. Thank you. Wish we had more time as we would have loved to have stayed for a few days... Hosts were absolutely wonderful. We will be back.

Lovely and peaceful location by the lake. A main building surrounded by numerous cottages. The superior room is in fact located on the inferior level of the main building, exposed to car park and thoroughfare traffic and may not be appropriate for couples. The manager was not entirely honest and tried to oversell the upgrade to the two bedroom cottage... More

Hello and thank you for your review. Unfortunately as you booked one of our entry level rooms through a third party site it makes it very difficult for us to provide an upgrade at a reduced cost especially seeing as we were almost 100% occupied on the night. If my memory serves me correctly you only paid a $20 upgrade... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful night here, the setting was so peaceful, the Federation style rooms were very comfortable with a wonderful lounge, open fireplace and large old style chairs, great for relaxing in. The breakfast was excellent and the chef was an extremely friendly and cheerful gentleman. The setting was so calm and a photographers delight, with... More

If you like city night life this is not the place for you. If you like the quiet and independant life this is the ideal place to stay. Be prepared to wait a few minutes after you ring the door bell for reception as the notice on the door says enjoy the view while you wait. The view over the... More

en route from Melbourne to Sydney we were made very welcome. Beautiful location and upgraded to a very well equipped cottage. Helpful and friendly staff with superb breakfasts. The walk into town was great along the boardwalk and everything was brilliant - can't understand any negative review about the hosts - not our experience at all! Ability to use the... More

This was our first stay and we will be back!! The staff were friendly - thank you Greg and Jeremy. We were upgraded to a cottage and we did not want to leave. The cottage was clean and the whole resort was awesome - pool, spa, walk from the resort along the river edge - everything was perfect!!!!! Thank you

Our second visit here and its the perfect getaway, its quiet, take a walk through the garden and around the grounds, take a longer stroll along the boardwalk to town. You wont need anything here, by far the best self contained accommodation we have stayed in.

I have stayed at this property on a few occasions and it really is like a home away from home. The host's are lovely people and I really enjoyed sitting by the fire in the main house, the beautiful and perfectly cooked breakfast,the pool and outdoor spa area, tennis court and walking around the property and down by the lake...
