Sapphire Waters Motor Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 23, 2014

I stayed there a couple of nights for business. The rooms are tidy, comfortable and quiet, with a glimpse of the water. I had a table to work at that is actually near a powerpoint which is nice. The bathrooms could do with an update & car park is a little bit of a squeeze.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. We do get a lot of business travellers staying with us because we offer special rates with cooked breakfasts and also include a mini bar token. The Free Wifi is also an attraction and the fact that we are walking distance to town and the clubs so getting dinner is usually easy. As for the parking, we have not had any one mention our packing space being and issue before, maybe we where very full that night. Thanks again!

This Motor Inn was a wonderful surprise from the start and end of our stay. The receptionist was warm, friendly and helpful. Loved the fact that the free wifi password was on the key to the room for ease of access. Our room was bright, clean and very comfortable with two TVs and a kitchenette. The motel is in easy walking distance to clubs, shops and attractions .

Very nice Motor Inn, the room was just lovely with great views of Merimbula and the water. Loved how the lounge area was away from the bedroom. Balcony was just perfect, Sunday morning
having a cuppa overlooking the bay with the sun shining, what a way to start the day. The room was clean and nicely presented and the shower was great as was the spa. An easy walk to town centre with heaps of retail therapy less than five minutes away.

Room Tip: I think nearly all there rooms overlook the town and water, it just has a nice feel about it.

Spacious accommodation. Very easy to find. We could walk to nearby restaurant for an evening meal. We had a problem with a document which needed signing, scanning and re-emailing to the UK. Carol and her staff helped us big time with this. Lots of shops and facilities at Merimbula unlike most of the surrounding places, Would stay there again.

It was really nice to stay here for 4 nights at the Sapphire Waters Motor Inn - we had a spacious and comfortable room, upstairs with private balcony and a good view across the trees to the lake and ocean in the distance. The staff were very helpful and pleasant - special thankyou to Carol for her expert local knowledge, especially of the restaurants and take-away fish and chips places! It's an easy 5 minute walk to the main street and clubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. Within easy reach if you're up for a good walk is the lake or the boardwalk - you passed by the oyster farms and plenty of bird life. We'd stay here again.

Room Tip: We had room 21 up one easy flight of steps. It's on the end - very quiet.

My husband and I stayed here and it was great. After a short taxi ride from the airport to the Sapphire Waters, we were so relieved that we chose to forgo a rental car ($200+ for 2 nights) as the Inn is a short walk away from everything great about Merimbula. The hosts were lovely. There is also a good collection of DVDs to borrow for free from reception. They have 2 kayaks available for hire. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. We would stay again.
