My boyfriend and I spend a relaxed weekend here in late November 2016. Right off the bat, the owners were some of the nicest people I've ever met- friendly, helpful, and check-in was quick and easy after our 4 hour car trip. When I enquired when the pool would be open again (it was closed for maintenance), Antoinette tested the... More

We stayed one night and had a standard room which was roomy, spotless clean and had a nice backyard patio. No views but a wonderful lush green garden. The hosts are welcoming and nice people. Toni will show you how to hand-feed the many Rainbow Lorikeet birds if you like. Our room had a fridge and the usual essentials but... More

Really pleasing Motel to stay at, a very clean and well fitted out room and excellent gardens. What a genuine welcome we received from the lady at reception and when we met during our stay.

hello Robert, I am pleased you enjoyed our hospitality, thank you for the nice comments. There is occasional light local traffic along Merimbula Drive at night, heavy transport uses the Pambul/Merimbula Bypass, if you live in a rural area then any noise would be disturbing. We always sleep better in our own environment where sounds are familiar. Ssfe travels, Antoinette More

The lady running the hotel was absolutely lovely. My partner and I were running late and she organised everything for us. The room was very clean and tidy and the birds there were beautiful! Next time I'm in Merimbula I will definitely be back here!
