“Good location with great views of the water”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

We only stayed one night in Batemans Bay, but the Zorba motel was a great place to stay. We paid the extra $5 a night to have a room that overlooks the water (which is < 50 yards from the motel). Well worth it. The rooms themselves are pretty basic, though it was nice having the balcony for most of the time. For the 5 minutes the guy in the next room was smoking on his balcony, no so nice.

While we did receive access for free wireless internet...the connection was so bad, it wasn't usable. No big deal to us, but if it's important to you, may be a problem.

Overall, nice location, good views and a good value.

Quick tip...eat at "The Little Restaurant and Bar" a block up the street, Great food.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $5 a night for a room with water views!

Reviewed October 25, 2011

We have just had 2 nights staying at the Zorba Motel, our room was a waterview room with private balcony, although the rooms are rather "dated" they are exceptionally clean and well equiped and comfortable, plenty of parking outside and friendly staff, breakfast is available at the cafe at the end of the carpark which we both enjoyed each day, food was very good and good value for money, there is a microwave and toaster in the room along with the normal tea and coffee making facilities and air conditioning, flat screen tv, electric blankets, we will be back again for sure, well done to a family run motel since the 1970's,

Room Tip: most rooms have waterviews and private balcony
