Old but maintained very well and always spotless. Rooms are cheery, comfy and practical with lots of bench space and a deck overlooking truly spectacular views. Always a warm, friendly check-in. Highly recommend.

The break at the Kingfisher Motel was great. We have stayed here quite a few times before. The motel is clean and very quite. The views are to die for. The owners Jannine and Baron are friendly and helpful and can not do enough for you.

We were tired and checked into the first motel going into Merimbula and it was a lovely surprise. Our hostess very welcoming and the room quite spacious and comfortable with toaster, microwave fridge. Bed and bathroom good. Also has a verandah with table and chairs to enjoy the outlook, but visible by other guests.

A very clean, basic motel room, decided to give it a go based on the view and the bird show. it didn't disappoint, feed time around 5/5.30, after a while you couldn't count them. An onsite resident cockatoo, George, is very interactive and fun, no patting, likes fingers for supper!! The room is compact, clean and everything you need is... More

And the big views that blew my mind! I read other reviews of this motel and was ready for lovely outlooks but not prepared for the reality of it. Opening the room door I was shocked to look straight through to glass sliding door to a semi private verandah with views to the sea! Stunning. The room was really pleasant-... More

Welcoming owners, clean, a short distance from the township, great views of the sea and surrounds, very nice and reasonably priced breakfast. All this for a very good price. We have stayed there on a previous trip and that's why we wanted to go back.

We stayed one night at the Kingfisher Motel and we picked it because of the reviews of others who enjoyed the views and the wildlife. We were glad we did. The views are great and watching all the birds (and the sheep) being fed night and morning was great. The room was basic but clean and comfortable and had everything... More

Doesn't pretend to be a 5 star property but the rooms are spacious the beds are comfortable and the views from the balcony you can watch forever. Awakening to the dawn chorus of cockatoos and parrots is a special treat. Too far to walk to town, but it's only 5 mins from town by car We will be back.

Fantastic location with the best views of Merimbula and a menagerie of local wildlife to enjoy.. Room was spotless and the hosts Janine and Baron are a couple of characters and nothing seems too much trouble. Already planning our next visit :) Mark & Cassie

A basic motel set on top of one of the hills overlooking Merimbula, probably not an easy walk into town so a car would be recommended. Rooms are basic but come with a decent fridge, coffee / tea, kettle etc
