This is a run down place with little to redeem it. The only good point is the bed and linen are clean. The aircon is noisy, the curtains old and tattered. I stayed on the first floor and the steps up were steep and narrow, easy to fall down I think. I wouldn't stay here again.

Was just passing through Bateman's Bay when I decided to make a pit stop, saw the Reef as the first motel off the highway & we pulled in. Payed a reasonable tariff of $140 for a renovated room which also had a courtyard. The motel also offered room service which was quite surprising quality, not what you would expect from... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night of a long weekend. The hotel was full, but the receptionist informed us that breakfast will not be provided on Sunday morning. What a waste of a prefect opportunity to make some money.??? No explanation was offered. At reception we were told the room is a renovated room and it is 4 star.... More

Stayed over the June long weekend & had great time. Our room was clean, comfortable & the property is only a stones throw away from the town center & waterfront. We also dined in the Seafood restaurant which was delicious. Service was also very attentive & the reception staff help us with getting around the area & pointing out local... More

Have to agree that the bathroom in our room was very small and it was difficult to use the toilet as it's stuck between the shower and the sink! In saying that though it's very clean and the shower works well with plenty of hot water and is roomy. The bed is thankfully comfortable and not like a concrete slab... More

Service was good, stayed in an upgraded room however you could not use the toilet without standing sideways. The air conditioner is from the early seveties with nob controls and sounds like a train also not effective, could not sleep with it turned on so had a very warm night. Over all very disappointed with quality and is way over... More

We chose the Reef Motel in Batemans Bay as the first stop on a seven day road trip of Southern NSW. After checking the menu of the adjoining Reef Restaurant which is part of the complex we decided to have dinner there. The menu looked good with a wide choice of seafood and meat dishes. What followed was nothing less... More

The room was reasonably clean. Hard to find any staff at checkin or during the evening. Seems like their staffing model needs some modification. Our room faced a channel but not a great view. Okay place to stay but not top rate. Bed was pretty hard. Mini bar wine was good price!
