Antoinette and Tony once again looked after us.This motel is the most picturesque with magnificent gardens and colour on display on both sides upon entry.The rainbow lorikeets proved to be a hit once again and feeding time is always an entertaining frenzy to watch with plenty...

The motel is in a lovely location in the seaside town of Merimbula. Easy to find, decent sized rooms with fridge and tea/coffee facilities. Bathroom with large shower but could do with a bit of a freshen up. Had a private garden patio area which would have been nice to sit in but weather wasn't on our side. There are...

Hello Neepy, Yes, the Rainbow Lorikeets are a great source of entertainment for everyone, for wild birds they are extremely inquisitive and trusting. 2016 was a huge year for us, we refurbished every bathroom, removed the old spa baths, installed lovely glass shower screens, new ceramic toilets/chrome accessories, replaced the tiles, painted the walls and ceiling etc. Some bathrooms now...

We stayed here two years ago and were impressed by this motel. It is located on a hill which overlooks Merimbula and is just a five minute walk from the centre. The accommodation is spotless with much thought having been applied to the appointments in the room. The best shower I have had for some time on this trip, with...

it was a last minute booking and the staff is very friendly. The room was spacious but lacked some of the basic facilities like a microwave & cutlery. The hotel provides breakfast (additional cost) and the options are good from a full English breakfast to cereal & yogurt. The biggest issue was the wifi was almost unusable.

Hello Christopher, We offer 5 different room types, 3 room types have kitchenettes and the other two are straight motel rooms with only tea and coffee making facilities. Perhaps you chose the wrong room type when making your last minute reservation? As per the notice on your coffee table and in the guest directory the Wi-Fi is provided by LIVEPORT,...

Our duplex room -bedroom upstairs, living room, kitchen and bathroom downstairs- was light, comfy and perfectly cleaned. Every morning and evening, colorful budgies make their show in the small garden. You can give them pieces of apple and they will come eat them in your hand. Cherry on top, the balcony is a perfect spot to watch the sunrise. Anton...

Our accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The gardens are a delight - full of colour; the pretty Rainbow Lorikeets are in abundance. The manager and his wife obviously take great pride in the establishment; they are very pleasant and informative as to local facilities. The motel is within walking distance of the town and the lakeside boardwalk.

Our stay at the BW Sea Spray hotel was very pleasant. The hotel does not cater for children, so we found the hotel very quiet and noise free. The facilities were very good and the free internet facilities really helped us stay in contact with friends and family during our stay. The hotel is very well maintained and includes a...

Good afternoon Kevin, Your detailed review is very much appreciated. The South Coast of NSW has so much to offer yet is often only thought of as a 2nd cousin to the North and Central Coasts. People who venture this far south are usually astounded with the variety of native features and and magnificent coastline that we are blessed with....

Hubby and I spent a week in an Executive room and we could not be any happier with everything about our stay. The room was spacious and well-appointed. The bath was the perfect way to finish each day. It's only a short stroll to all the shops, restaurants and waterside of Merimbula. This is a great motel, which we are...

Good evening Sam, You are very kind with your remarks, thank you. You certainly looked relaxed when you left yesterday. The 5 minute walk into town is just an easy stroll, perhaps the 7 minute walk home might be a bit of a challenge after a good night out!!

Lovely place with friendly people. Has a pool, BBQ & DVDs you can borrow. Bed & pillows were a bit hard but had all the things we needed for our stay & overall not a bad place to stay. Lots of nearby things to do. Close to small airport & beaches.
