The owners were very friendly, incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home! They had great advice for places to see/eat around the area and were more than happy to have that conversation. The hotel was well kept and looked after by the owners and their workers, with beautiful gardens and facilities that we enjoyed. The room was modern,... More

Owners were very welcoming from arrival, showed us to our rooms which was nice. Rooms were spacious, clean, modern and well furnished etc. The location and view was also fantastic, with views over the ocean/bay from the upstairs rooms, and only a 5 minute walk to the buzzing town. Would stay again.

Antoinette was so friendly when checking in. The room is clean and bright and the bed is incredibly comfortable. Had the best sleep of our holiday here. Walking distance to the main restaurant strip and waterfront, a bit of an uphill walk back which was good after big dinner!

A tidy motel unit within an easy walk of town. Hosts very welcoming. Had a two story unit with bedroom upstairs. Very roomy and very clean. Decor a little dated but comfortable nevertheless. Great pool area and BBQ area also.

An excellent spot to stay with lots of things to see. There are plenty of nice places to eat - our favourite is the Wharf Restaurant, but there are lots more to find. A walk along the Boardwalk was recommended and was very pleasant.

We hope that you enjoyed your New Year celebrations. Thank you for your kind review. Yes, the Wharf Restaurant offer excellent food with a nice setting. With so many good eateries the choices are endless! The Boardwalk is definitely my favourite, flat, easy going and with the attraction of a coffee/ice cream at the end. Take care and safe travels....

The owners (he is from Austria) take care of everything and ensure that the guests feel more than comfortable. We had an executive-suite (in fact a duplex-apartment) ón the second floor, which we can recommend absolutely. Breakfast is available, which is nice if you do not want to spend time to look for a cafe. Lots of colourful parrots "enter"... More

Our exec room and double room were very good. The owners are extremely welcoming and helpful, which really makes a difference. The location is very close to town and shops. There was a cold snap during our stay but the room heating coped no worries. They have free DVDs. Latest titles too.

Hello, the executive suites are great if you want to spread out a bit and have a bit of 'me' space. The larger balcony and upstairs bathroom are ideal for an extended stay. Sounds as though you had a great weekend. Thank you for staying with us and I am pleased you enjoyed your Merimbula experience. See you next time.... More

Very satisfied with our stay, management were so welcoming and very knowledgable of the area. We were given great advice and were quickly familiar with the area, after a run down of the town map.

Stayed here for the 3rd time recently and I wonder why I don't come here more often. The owners are incredibly friendly and understanding. They cannot do enough for their guests which is why this will not be the last time we stay here. An excellent place for as many nights as you wish
