“Thank you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I am writing this to say Thankyou to the Sapphire Waters Motor Inn, I had booked into stay in September however due to change in circumstances I had to cancel but was met with the most polite person on the other end of the phone. I will highly recommend you to everyone from this call alone! Hope to stay soon however :)

Sapphire Waters was a great find. The feel was homely and our king room was just what we needed after a long drive. The bed was very comfortable and the room was a good size. Excellent value and very clean and tidy. Carol, on the front desk, is a real asset with a good knowledge of the local dining options. Will most certainly recommend the Motor Inn to family and friends.

Extremely happy with the after hours service. Carol went above and beyond anything I could have expected. Very welcoming and informative of services provided and very helpfull personally.
During my stay I was treated extremely well. Room was big and very clean. Mini bar prices were unexpectedly cheap.
Breakfast choice was fantastic and delicious.
Room is supplied with all comforts of home. Spacious and a grand view of beautiful Merimbula.

Room Tip: Overall this is the perfect place to stay and relax.

We stayed at the Motor Inn on our way down from Sydney to Melbourne. The room was very clean and really good value. The Hotel receptionist was incedibly helpful and full of good honest advice about local facilities as well as great advice on where we were going next.

Room was a decent size and had everything you could need from an overnight stay...2 TV's in the room too...all in all good value compared to what I have paid for other rooms and would recommend staying there

I won a romance and relaxation package and was very pleased with our accommodation room was very clean and smelt wonderful the spa was my favourite and the furniture was definitely not outdated and everything in the room worked location was great close to everything but still nice and peaceful staff were very friendly and even helped us choose some videos as it was raining during our stay. We plan to go back with the whole family and would not hesitate to recommend to family and froends

My girlfriend and I stopped in Merimbula on the way from Sydney to Melbourne earlier this month and we found Sapphire Waters Motor Inn from other Trip Advisor reviews. We stayed on the Friday night which seemed like a fairly busy night for them as there were a fair number of cars in the carpark.

As we had never been to Merimbula before the girl at the front desk gave us a great explanation of the things to do and sights to see. Actually she recommended Potoroo Palace where we went the next day and it worth a few hours in the afternoon.

The room was clean and tidy with a nice sized TV. For the price we paid I thought it was good value as I have paid much more elsewhere for less. Overall the atmosphere is very friendly and I would recommend others to stay there.

Friendly and efficient reception on arrival and the lady who was very helpful.
Good sized rooms with most of the mod cons including outdoor pool and Barb Q area.
Easy strolling distance to the main shopping precinct and clubs.

Room Tip: Some upstairs rooms on the south side have a view of the Lake.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review.
We can not explain the airconditioner not working after the first night, had we of known there was an issue the next night we have attended to it immediately.
Our upstairs room that you were in do not have a kitchenette, you would have been advised on booking that our downstairs room s have kitchenettes and upstairs have bath spas and a better view. The tape on the spa bath is on the push start button for the spa jets, to be taken off by the guest when using the spa. A bit like a strip on the toilet to let guests know it is clean.
If you ever plan to come back to Merimbula from New Zealand for another visit we would be happy to offer you a free upgrade.
