“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This well located motel in Merimbula is just what I needed for my teenage son and I on a fishing trip to merimbula. Derek and Tanya took care of our every need. Rooms are simple, but clean and spacious, we had one overlooking town, great views. Food was well priced and very tasty and the refurbed restaurant has great atmosphere. See you again.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs overlooking town.

I stayed at the Comfort Inn Merimbula from 22/4/14 to 26/4/14 and the managers went out of their way to ensure your stay was pleasant. The rooms were so clean and roomy. The location is perfect, walking distance to the main street, the beach and clubs, cinema. You just park your car and walk everywhere. The owners can advise you of all tourist attractions available. The restaurant is excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms have a view of the ocean Balcony rooms upstairs have a table and chairs to sit out in the sun...

The accommodations were nice, but since we drove up from Melbourne and as it had been a long day, we arrived quite late..... And found the front lobby closed. When we rang the bell for assistance (we had a reservation), we were scolded for not being their 'on time'.
So advance warning to Americans . . .
In Hotels in America the front lobby is open 24/7 and there is a hotel employee manning the front desk for your convenience 24/7. Apparently it is somewhat common for hotels in Australia to close at 6:00 pm. You need to arrive before that, as the front desk will be closed. We, unfortunately had met with 3 such situations by the end of our trip.You may want to get a copy of their policies ahead of time, they are a bit unique. . . . be prepared.

I sincerely apologise if you found my advice Rude, As I saw that you were international travellers I thought it was best to advise that if you planned to arrive after 10pm for the rest of your visit, you may find that many hotels will be shut (which looks like you found this out after staying here). We do have very different hours of operation in Australia and it is always best to ring ahead if arriving late. I hope you enjoyed Australia ! Thanks for taking time to write a review on our motel.

Lovely, comfortable rooms with everything you need. Pretty decor with elegant timber panelling - not hard and modern, more cosy and homely, which is what I prefer. Quiet position, close to everything you need in town. Friendly and obliging staff. Great food in the restaurant. I was very happy with my stay here and will happily return next time I need to stay in Merimbula.

Recently stayed here for 3 nights - on the positive side it is very close to the main street and all the local attractions. However, rooms are very small and cramped, furniture very dated, beds are uncomfortable, A/c didn't really work and you can hear what's happening next door (what they are watching on TV and yes, even what they are doing in the bathroom). Overall - okay for an overnight stay - but not if you are planning on staying longer.

We arrived in Merimbula after a 9 hour drive and when we arrived at the hotel we were expecting if not 4 star quality then at least a modern and comfortable room.
The check in was efficient and we found our room on the first floor,on entering we saw two single beds but then we realised there was another bedroom adjoining with a double bed and another bathrooms.
The first problem was the bed,the mattress was noisy and quite frankly well past is use by date.
The decor was very dated and the bathroom fixtures were quite ancient.
There was a rattan chair in the bedroom that was falling apart with a dingy seat cushion.
Some towels felt more like a nappy (thin) than a towel and should have been replaced.
There was a large basket of laundry by the stairs up to our room and all in all the standard was far below what we would expect in this day and age from even a small town hotel.
We both had a terrible nights sleep and could not wait to check out and move on to our next stop in Australia.

Thank you for your feedback, If I can kindly respond to your review though, We are not a 4 star motel and have never claimed to be, if that was what you were looking for I may suggest you do a little more research before checking youreslf into motels in future. We are fully aware that the motel needs updating, we have been here as new owners only a short time and "Rome wasn't built in a day", we are trying to work through everything that needs doing, in good time. We use a linen service that supply quality linen to us twice a week and our laundry is sent away (hence the big laundry bin). Although we cannot please everybody, I do appreciate you taking the time to advise us of some tips we can move forward with.

Fine for a nights stay, but I found it quite noisy due to music at night from other rooms and quite thin walls. So overall not the best nights sleep of our holiday.

Overall it was basic but well kept - clean rooms and tidy grounds.
