Large, clean room, good shower. All amenities. Simple breakfast, prompt delivery. Efficient, helpful staff. Do appreciate that it is some way out of town so you have to drive everywhere,e g for a beer or an evening meal. Golf course over the road has a restaurant but the food was very "school dinner". Go to Vicolos in town instead.

Had a weekend here recently as nearly all the motels in Merimbula were booked out & the other ones that were left looked dumpy. It's a bit out of the way & closer to Pambula than Merimbula. We got there late, around 9pm as we were driving down from Canberra in the late afternoon, I informed the motel of this...

Hi Rachel, thank you for taking the time to let us know you enjoyed your stay. The fact we are not in the heart of Merimbula is a blessing for some to keep out of the noise and yet not be far from the centre to still walk in if required. Sorry you felt the bed a little hard. We...

A lovely clean, spacious and modern room. Handy mini bar with snacks. A little out of the way from in town but a beautiful location and setting. Golf course/club over the road and a lovely seafood restaurant next door. Would have been nice if it was warm enough to use the pool!

Our room was a queen and single with a sofa bed as well. Bed very comfy, plenty of extra blankets and the air con worked very well. 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.
