What a delightful motel and it was such a pleasure to stay here, if we did not have forward plans we would have stayed a few more nights. We were offered a choice of rooms on arrival which was great, we had a lovely little courtyard and garden. So clean, great amenties, a wonderful mini bar selection catering for everyone.... More

All usual amenities in the room like toaster, jug, t/coffee etc and ironing board. Room was large and well appointed. Bathroom was very clean and the shower pressure was terrific, heaven in fact!...

The room was as big as some apartments we have stayed in, very clean and tidy. The highlight was the electric blanket on the bed. Very friendly owners who know the area very well. The kitchenette is handy if you get takeaway from Merimbula.

This property and the service provided by the staff gave excellent value and made for a very pleasant stay. I had a huge room with all conveniences; spacious, clean and quiet. The staff were very friendly and genuine and most helpful. I would definitely stay here again and am happy to recommend this venue. Woody H. Canberra

A nice quiet location over the bridge opposite the Pambula/Merimbula Golf Club. My room was up the back in a really large room with a fully stocked bar fridge and full kitchenette.

I was really Surprised how luxurious the fit out was on these rooms. They are huge and have a private small patio. No walking out and into the neighbour. Stepped into the slope with Pambula 2 mins one way and Merimbula- -5 mins the other. You are 2 doors down from Wheelers restaurant which is fine dining. Across the road... More

Very spacious room with the ability to transfer either side onto the queen size bed. Most appliances easily accessible, one power point too deep to reach from wheelchair.
