Absolutely perfect getaway. A bit out of town, however there is a very enjoyable 40 minute walk along the boardwalk into the town centre. Accommodation has all the luxuries of home in a very peaceful surrounding. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and our stay coincided with the race day, which was a great day out, excellent racecourse for viewing... More

Robyns Nest is located in a spectacular bush setting with lake views and wonderfully manicured gardens around the cottages. It looks like the owners have spared no expense making this a very special place. On arrival we were greeted by Greg, whom we found to be extremely friendly and helpful and obliging. He upgraded us to a 1 bedroom cottage... More

This is a superior guesthouse in every way -- comfortable and "welcoming" rooms, spectacular setting, amenities such as communal living rooms, kitchen, library. Lovely patio off the main building with chairs and swimming pool Marvelous breakfast area (indoors or outdoors). Proprietors/owners are terrifically pleasant (and the chef does a very fine breakfast). Even a herd of wild kangaroos live on... More

Very well equipped and spotlessly clean units set in delightful grounds provide a great base for exploring in and around Merimbula. The secluded veranda - complete with large gas BBQ - provided a great place to relax. The owner's family were extremely friendly and helpful.

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
