I have stayed at this motel for the last 7 years as part of the Wall to Wall Police Memorial Ride for Remembrance and the place is like staying with old friends. You are always really warmly welcomed and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Looking forward to staying there next year again.

Clean room, plenty of space, good service, friendly staff. Good access to the local town. Only down side was the shower over the bath which only applies to us oldies who have trouble raising a leg. Worth putting up with.

At check in the lady was lovely, but upon opening my room I was a little disappointed. The room was clean, but the decor was seriously dated and needs an update. The bath was terrible w/ multiple repairs and...

This motel came highly recommended to me by a fellow work college. I have to say I was not disappointed. The room was wonderful spotlessly clean, despite it being on a main road, it was lovely and quiet, and the staff were extremely helpful and kind. I can't wait to stay again.

The Sapphire Waters Motor Inn is in a good location and walking distance to many of the great restaurants in Merimbula. I had a very large, 2 room unit with kitchenette, lounge, desk and table. The bathroom was very old fashioned with a shower over the bath and a shower curtain, but it was clean and functional. There was a...
