Was here during our roadtrip from Sydney to Melbourne. Convenient enough for overnight stay. Room was slightly damp, but clean and has beautiful window view. Great open layout, meaning no fences around the premises.

Clean tidy rooms - can't fault them. We stayed in a deluxe. Serviced daily. Staff were always friendly and ready to help. Yes the property's on the main road but traffic wasn't a bother - we were in one of the closest rooms. Planes weren't that much of a hindrance. Good deal for 2 nights, breakfast included daily.

I would not stay here again unless I had to. Room wasn't serviced, no a/c, dark inside, expensive for what you get. Good location, poor service could have been a lot friendlier and personable, felt like it was a get in get out affair.

We had a "deluxe suite" - first class - spotlessly clean unit with comfortable bed, quality TV and a well lit kitchenette with all basic crockery & cutlery. Excellent (stand-alone) shower - with instant hot water! The floors are an attractive mix of carpet & tiles. Lovely private courtyard outside unit overlooking the gardens and across to the lake. Quiet,... More

Just dropped in for the night en route to Sydney,a convenient motel ,reasonably priced and the room allocated excellent! All very comfortable,no complaints!Away from the noisy centre of Merimbula but still close by though. Staff very helpful,recommend this motel anytime as a convenient 'hop in ' en route.

Booked a last minute 3 night deal for the standard motel room at a bargain price. Although the room itself was quite old it has recently been refurbished so was clean and styled very tastefully to make for a very pleasant stay. On check in we were greeted with a friendly warm welcome and when I requested some extra linen... More

Merimbula is definitely worth a visit if you are visiting Australia, and this Motel was very comfortable, with an extremely helpful and attentive staff. We had forgotten our cell phone at the previous motel (Lake Entrance, the Heyfield Motel definitely worth visiting too!) and the gentleman at the reception called, verified that it was indeed in the hotel and had...

Admittedly we booked that day in peak season, not the point. When we got the key & went to walk up the stairs to the second floor the state of the stairs was disgusting. I opened our door & the smell that hit us was like walking into a smelly old pub. It was hot & my wife & I... More
