Just had to write and say what a wonderful time I had at the Whale Motor Inn. I was hungry and tired when seated for my dinner. The service was outstanding as was the food. Probably the best Bloody Marys I've ever had - and I would know! The chicken terrine was perfect and the Angus steak was awesome. I... More

My friend and l spent a week here in an executive suite and the best thing was our view. OMG it was lovely to wake up to, and to have afternoon nibbles and dinner on our deck. Very nice to swim in the pool and read our books by the pool. The two girls that made up our room every... More

I stayed here recently and my work colleague and I booked an executive suite which from the outset was very reasonably priced especially due to the fact it was smack right in the middle of the summer holidays. The suite had a seperate bathroom and large bedroom and a wonderful sized living area with cooking facilities. The decore, leather lounges... More

We had not been to Narooma before so this was a bit of an unknown. However, the hotel was in a brilliant location with the beaches, bars and restaurants all within an easy walk. The views from our room were beautiful and the room itself was a good size. The only downside was that the restaurant was closed on Sunday... More

Stayed here for one night on our way from Melbourne to Sydney , with our 9 year old daughter and our friends . We booked a two bedroom unit, it was big enough, but only just with one bathroom between the bedrooms. That said it was our choice but with 5 people two units would have been better for us.... More

This was our first night's stop on our road trip across to Adelaide. Great room with lovely inlet views. Very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. We had dinner at O'Briens Pub but breakfast here at Whale Inn. Lovely views and good breakfast. Had a nice balcony too.

Really enjoyed our 1yr anniversary at the Whale Motor Inn, it's funny it doesn't strike me as a "Motor Inn" we loved the view and closeness to the restaurants beach and bars. Definitely go back one day soon.

I stayed in a family suite for five days with my 3yo. The room was exceptionally clean and tidied each day. My son loved having the pool right outside out door. The bed was so comfy, the views are great and it's just a short walk to shops across the road and the bowling club. The suites aren't huge however... More

We drove up the hill into the car park and it looked much the same as any other motel,certainly nothing to get excited about.We were amazed when we entered our suite which was huge. The bedroom with queen size bed was the first room we entered and this was separated from the sitting room by a beautifully appointed bathroom. The... More

Photos make it look better than it really is. Rooms have been renovated with paint and new furniture, but all taps, sinks, kitchen and bathroom need to be replaced. We have stayed here often in executive rooms but this time, we stayed two nights in the upstairs executive spa suite. This was not worth the $210 charged. Views fantastic but... More
