We showed up without a booking, but that wasn't a problem, and were promptly shown to room 6 which was very clean and had a really nice view. The shower in our spotless bathroom had good water pressure and sustained hot water. If visiting Mallacoota in the next month, you could do a lot worse than stay here. After a...

Turned up at 4:30pm to check into my room. Lights off. No one home.... Rang the office number and the hotelier had taken some time off as he thought no one was staying because he had forgotten to write in my booking. Luckily it's quiet round here and I found alternative accomodation... disappointed.

Travelling up the coast from Paynesville with my brother and his wife who were down from Europe I booked two rooms three days in advance. We arrived mid-afternoon only to be told that the rooms were not ready. We went down to town to rustle up some grub at Café 54 and tried again at about 16:00, rooms ready this...

The location of the lodge isn't far from the town centre. It was really close to some of the trails that were recommended. Having the fireplace made it more memorable for us as we don't usually experience such things in our country. Do look out for the wild life at the back yard! It is lovely to see them roaming...

The Blue Wren is situated set back from ‘the main road’ running into Mallacoota so noise is no problem. Our room was on the first floor and an excellent choice make sure you book the first floor for $95. The view was great, overlooking the Inlet from the balcony and then breakfast inside looking out at the view what more...

I had such a warm welcome from Joe, the owner, I immediately felt at home. He described everything I needed to know about the town, from places to eat to sites I could visit. The room was wonderful. There was a double bed, a single bed, a separate seating area with table, a sofa, TV and a little kitchen area....

Room was spotless. Large room with space for four chairs around the dining table. Owner was a hoot and most helpful. The location is great and only 500m into town. Easy walk. (Be wary of the Chinese takeaway in town - we didn't try the pizzas - but the spring rolls were not a good story). In mid winter the...

I've been in this hotel with my family during a trip around South-Eastern Australia, and this has been one of the best. The owner is quite happy to tell you everything about the surroundings and better for you to listen to him. It has been thanks to his advice that we discovered (on of) the best beaches in the world:...

Stayed here on a quick stopover and glad we did - a weekday in winter will give you a lot of options in Mallacoota but remember you get what you pay for and there is probably a good reason why the Blue Wren was almost full in a town of empty hotels. Firstly the hosts Joe and Cathy - lovely...

“Rooms on the top floor at the rear have nice distant views of the water. All rooms face north and come with a little patio table and chairs for two so you can enjoy your breakfast in the sun looking at the view.”
