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

This motel does everything it says it can. Close to the town, (big hill so not a walk) clean and plenty of beautiful bird life. We also got to see some lovely wombats. We only spent one night here on our journey through but it was more than adequate for what we needed. If you are a pillow person, I... More

We have stayed here a number of times over the past 6 years. Always spotlessly clean and well maintained. Janine and Baron are great hosts. Highly recommended for those wanting a quiet stay with great views.

Best stop of the month away. Birds were amazing, right outside your window. Beautiful colours and so many types. Great hosts. Very helpful with the smallest things. Comfortable beds. Great shower. Clean and tidy. Will go back for sure.

Firstly, if you are looking for the latest design in motels, this one is not for you. If you want a spotlessly clean motel with spectacular views, close to beach, shops and restaurants, very fair rates, and to top it of, friendly and helpful owners, then this motel is the one for you. Usually I will only stay in accommodation... More

For a budget motel this was amazingly good. Rooms are bright and light and a pleasure to relax in and all have a semi-private balcony overlooking the bush and the sea. The motel grounds come complete with great birdlife and the occasional sheep. The room itself is well fitted out with a comfortable bed, sofa and table and chairs as... More

I married an Aussie 40+ years ago and we have traveled to Australia over a dozen times, normally for three months at a time. We try to tour different sections of the country each time we travel. We have stayed in expensive places, cheap places and average places. But we found the Kingfisher one of our most enjoyable stays of... More
