“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

We spent 3 very relaxed nights at this lovely B&B over the Australia Day long weekend. It's private, romantic, quiet and the breakfasts are fabulous! Judy and John have done a fantastic job here with nicely appointed rooms and that gorgeous walled garden/courtyard, immaculate gardens and a fabulous view from the deck which is used when the delicous breakfasts are served. Sitting on the deck in the evening with nibbles and a glass of wine watching the tide go out and the colours change was great too.

Judy's advice about where to go (or not) and restuarant ideas was very helpful and you can leave the car securely parked off the street in the evenings and walk to most restaurants.

Room Tip: Whilst the "middle" room has a limited view down the side of the building to the deck and...

A perfect 2 day B&B experience on the south coast at Merimbula. Judy and John have created a gorgeous touch of Italy behind a private front garden that is relaxing, stylish and classy. Located on the lagoon it is within walking distance to all amenities and restaurants and a short drive to anything you might need. Judi served a lovely breakfast and great local info as well as doing anything to make our stay comfortable. Perfect....

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully appointed but the front room has lake views.

Should have written this review earlier, we travelled from Melbourne to Sydney by car last March and one of our stopovers was at the Bella Vista in Merimbula. If you are planning a simular trip this is a"must do " stop. John and Judy are fantastic hosts and Merimbula when the sun is shining is fabulous--I didn't want to leave. Our other stops were Lakes Entrance-quite good and Ulladulla--dont bother

Visited Bella Vista B&B on a spur of the moment thing, which had been highly recommended by friends. Well, we were very impressed, right from John welcoming us, showing us the wonderful room - very large, light & airy, and tastefully decorated. The courtyard is beautiful - think camellias, azaleas, water feature & more.
Judy's breakfasts are an absolute delight. These two really know how to make a special getaway. If you like the idea of the water lapping at your feet, do yourself a favour and visit Bella Vista B&B Merimbula.

My husband and I have just returned from a week's touring holiday along the Southerm NSW coast.
Our first and last nights were spent at a wonderful B and B called Bella Vista in Merimbula run by two charmimg hosts, John and Judy Hori.
Bella Vista is convenient to the town, situated on Main St and within a stroll to the shops and restaurants but nestled behind a garden and parking area to give the property enclosed within privacy and tranquility.
Once through the security door you enter a beautiful courtyard with the modern, immaculate and beautifully decorated rooms to the left.
The main house opens onto the lake with views across the water and to mountain ranges beyond making a perfect place to enjoy and linger over Judy's fresh, healthy and delicious beakfasts, cooked to order and to personal preferences [my husband is vegetarian].
The rooms are impeccably clean and after spending almost twice the amount in a resort hotel later in the trip for less than half the quality or ambience, a stay at BV is also amazingly good value as well as a charming and restful experience.
We were so happy to be returning there on our homeward journey, it was like a homecoming.

  • Liked — Beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms. Charming hosts, great location.
  • Disliked — We have no criticisms.
