I can't speak highly enough of my stay! The staff were really friendly and helpful, which was great as it was our first stay in Merimbula. Neat and clean room with great facilities. I'd recommend this Motor Inn to anyone. Thanks for making our short get away so comfortable!

We had a great stay at this motel. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable and excellent value for the price. The owners were very obliging and delivered a sewing repair kit to us at short notice at a very busy time - and with a friendly smile! The breakfast was perhaps the best motel cooked breakfast we have had.

We stayed at this motel while travelling from Sydney to Melbourne. What a little Gem! The Receptionist we met on arrival was extremely helpful with suggesting places to eat out & the owners cooked a delicious hot breakfast in the morning, delivered to our door. The rooms were spacious & clean with a well stocked mini bar. We will make a point of making this our regular stop over point :)

We would highly recommend this motel. The room we had was large, airy, lovely and clean. The owners, Peta & Steve were so helpful in suggesting places of interest and restaurants in town, which was just a short stroll from the motel.
The home cooked breakfast was fantastic and the mini bar was well stocked.
We would strongly recommend Sapphire Waters Motel to anyone and we can't wait to visit and stay again.
Fantastic ....

My partner and I stayed overnight at Sapphire Waters Motor Inn whilst traveling south. The owners were very friendly and provided fast and efficient service. We enjoyed the room - it was clean and well-presented. We were pointed in the direction of the best pub in town and had a great meal and a few drinks there.
It is a well-positioned establishment with good parking and well-kept amenities. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have good views of the lake.

Went for the long weekend package with my partner, needed a break!! The staff were really nice and helpful and they told us about the area and what we could see around the beaches! The facilities were really clean and tidy which is important to us ladies, we asked for extra towel and were given it within 5 minutes! We had a what looked like a brand new TV in our room, and the bed was super comfortable, I would recommend anyone to come here to get away and relax in a lovely setting.

Wanting to escape Sydney for the weekend we made our way down to Merimbula for 2 nights. Our friends had recommended Sapphire Waters Motor Inn to us so I thought it would be worth a look. I'm glad we did as well as the owners (I can't remember their names) took the time to give us all the local info and told us the best places to eat.

Whilst we only stayed for 2 nights I would consider coming here for longer holidays as there's just so much to do around Merimbula and the beaches in that area really are second to none. For anyone looking to get away from Sydney for a break you won't regret the short drive down.
