We stayed here on 27-28 December 2016 for 2 nights and was welcomed by Troy, he was very friendly and helpful, it was a good price too for around Christmas break. Troy suggested we go to Bermagui pools and it was the best rock pool I have ever seen. The rooms are very basic but I did not expect much... More

Extremely friendly host, well kept and clean, great value for money. Free parking and good location for beach and sights. Came in late, didnt book in advance and the host was so kind to come and open up the place for us. Called the number and had a room two minutes later. Surprised to see they even had a pool.

We were greeted at the Top of the Town by a very friendly proprietor. What a terrific start to our stay which included a lovely clean, well appointed room with lovely views of the inlet from the balcony. Nothing was too much trouble for our host which made for a lovely experience. We will definitely be back.

I stay in Narooma every 8weeks for work and have been staying in another local motel for the past 12months.

My partner and I stayed here overnight for a spontaneous beach weekend getaway. The service at the beginning was slow; we had to wait around for about 10 minutes before anyone even showed up at the front desk! But the man apologised, and it was clear he had been doing other things as it was peak cleaning time. We had... More

Hi Drew Thank you for taking time for your nice review. We try to offer value for money, and sounds like you were happy. I know what you mean about that hill, it never seems to get an easier. Maybe thats why they have two pubs on the way up that hill. Thanks Drew Regards Troy. More

I booked a room here for a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children. The new owner has updated this place quite a bit. The rooms are cosy, but big enough for a nights stay. All amenties were nice and clean. The owner was very welcoming. This is a great budget place to stay.

Best place in Narooma. Comfy beds, clean nice big room. Great value! Troy is the best, most friendly manager/owner you can find. Flexible on late minute bookings and changes. Gave great tips on where to go and what to do. If you go to Narooma, stay here!!

We stayed overnight on our way back to Melbourne. Arrived at 7pm and was given a room on the upper floor but requested a change since we didn't fancy dragging cases up stairs and also knee problems. No worries,we were given a bigger room on the ground floor which met our needs. Comfortable room,good sleep and shower.

A nice family business with clean and comfortable rooms. A bit out of the town centre but not much happening in Narooma to be honest so no big deal. Narooma is not a place you go to for the night life but if you want spectacular scenery this ids the place

Thank you for your nice review. That is right Narooma is not known for its night life, but more its beautiful water,beaches,fishing,golfing and relaxing, which we are walking distance to all of. We hope you enjoyed it here in Narooma even though we couldn't offer you much after dark, besides a comfortable room. Thanks again for staying with us.Regards Troy More
