Highly recommend the waterside rooms. Great view over the river and out to the heads. Rooms are clean and plenty of space. The location is easy walking distance to restaurants and there's walking paths right outside.

We stayed here for one night and after a 520 km motorbike day the welcome of Debbie felt like a warm bath. Room was good and decent size and modernly decorated, and the view over the water was nice. Nice central location.

Stayed overnight. Lovely location. Had an upstairs room with views over the bay. Enjoyed the balcony in the afternoon and morning. Rooms was very good, bathroom clean and modern. Easy walk to many restaurant options for dinner and breakfast. Only negative is that there were no wine glasses in the cupboard. In many motels I wouldn't miss this, but with... More

Almost did not stay. Weather was terrible, anyway saw the vacancy sign and drove in. Helpful staff. Good advice provided on where one good eat and opening hours. Room while not large was comfortable and all one needed to freshen up and start the day anew. Next morning was fortunately sunny with the room having great views across the Bay.... More

The location of this family owned motel is fantastic, right on the Bateman's Bay Esplanade and overlooking the bay. The service was excellent, the staff were very pleasant. The rooms are very small but make up for it due to being very clean, and have comfortable beds and nice renovated bathroom. The downside was that the night we were there... More

We selected Zorba Motel after a long drive from Sydney hoping to enjoy a good night's rest. We were woken up the first time approximately 4am by a garbage truck beeping as reversed next door at the pub. After finally getting back to sleep, we were woken up again at 7am with extremely loud music from one of the guests... More

Our room was very big and accommodated four sleepers. It had a nice bathroom and fridge. It was close to pubs. Overall a great experience. When we arrived, the lady at the front desk gave us a bottle of milk for tea, which I thought was very charming and hospitable. It's also nice to sit out on the dock of... More

Great location clean comfortable room with balcony looking over Clyde river. Comfortable bed. Good bathroom. Friendly staff. Towels could have been a bit thicker and would have liked a shower cap close to local cafes. Local cafe recommended by motel for breakfast. We drive on to Milton for breakfast.

A very nice place. We each had our own room. Each was very nice and very clean. Everything worked as it should. Good location, central to all one could need. Very helpful staff. Quiet night with a great view of the water. I would stay there again, without hesitation. David

This was our first stay at the Zorba for 15 years. The rooms have been given a freshen up, but not a complete overhaul in that time and are clean and quiet. Our first floor room had a balcony looking out over the water. The bathroom was clean with a good shower, and the queen sized bed was comfortable. Free... More
