“Always to place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Due to work I spend a lot of time down the far south coast. This place is a must if I ever have to stay in the Merimbula area. Rooms are huge and you can't go past the power of the showers, not to mention the location in relation to Wheelers Restaurant. Staff have always been friendly and helpful would definately recommend to everyone. They have rooms that can fit the whole family so no one misses out

Room Tip: The spa suites at the front of the motel offer huge rooms and a nice little enclave where the bed is...

Stayed 1 night on the way back from Canberra. Booked the spa suite. Beautiful very large clean room with king bed and kitchenette. Very comfortable bed. Extremely quiet and well maintained property. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The first thing we noticed was the exceptional size to our room. Great shower and bathroom. Quite setting opposite the golf course with plenty of nature around. Good optus 3G wireless coverage - didn't need the inhouse wireless. We ate accross the road at the golf club and had the meal booked to our room. Great beds and quite location. Saw heaps of kangaroos on the course. A little bit out of town but that's was the only poor point. We will definately come back.

I have stayed here on a few occasions for work. Basically I like it because it satisfies all my needs and then some. I especially like the fact that it is right next to Wheelers and does charge back which means I get a quality seafood meal, even have a couple of glasses of wine and wander back to a quiet and clean room. The staff are also very nice and accommodating and they do an ok breakfast. I travel a lot for work and there are much worse options out there then this believe you me I've stayed in some pretty awful places and this is not one of them.

After booking for 2 nights and then reading the reviews on here I began to wonder what I had gotten me and my boyfriend into. On arrival I was really surprised and shocked as to all the bad reviews. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious and beds really comfortable. Everything was clean and tidy. There was a note warning guests that they were refurbishing and so far theyre doing a good job. It may not be ideal for families holidaying in merimbula but for me and my partner who are travelling the south coast from merimbula to Wollongong, it was great. Merimbula is literally a 2 minute drive down the road. Recommended for people like us!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010

We stayed at the Best Western Fairway Motor Inn over the Easter break. As a special through their own website we stayed for 3 nights for $300 ($50 for the first 2 nights, then $100 for the 3rd night). I thought this was a pretty good deal. Having said that, my expectation of the rooms were low. I was very suprised on first inspection of the room.
It was very roomy, clean and comfortable. It had a bath sized spa which was an added bonus as we were not aware of this!
The kitchenette was large in size, but dissapointed that there was no cooking facility, although there was a microwave.
The location of the hotel is undesirable: make sure you have your own transport! It is basically in between Merimbula and Pambula, and my guess is it would be a long walk to either township.
Overall my stay was well enjoyed and would more then likely stay again.
