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.

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.

We had a very large room with a lovely balcony in the guesthouse with a huge closet and mini-refrigerator. Room included lounge chair, small table and chairs, king bed. However, there were no luggage racks, so we had to use the floor or bed. The bedspread had a worn, greasy sheen, perhaps from luggage. It didn't look very clean, and... More

This wonderful lakeside location just on the edge of town is let down by the suburban character of this motel's the decor and service. It's probably amongst the better of the disappointing range of motels in Merimbula, except without the convenience of actually being centrally located. The lake front walk is beautiful, but don't attempt it at night as the... More
