In a beautiful spot. Level of appointment is high. You could pay the same money in a dozen Hotel/Motels within walking distance and get much less for your money than this gem. Not close to the beach - you would have a 10 min drive. But for business travel, or a fantastic couples getaway this is great value.

Nice to find a purpose built B&B in Merimbula, a town dominated by motels & apartments. Large main house with seperate family cabins. Pool & tennis court available.

Robyn's Nest sits on the shores of a lake and the outlook is beautiful. The rooms in the main house are very large and comfortable, although the styling is a bit "twee" by today's standards. The property and rooms are impeccably clean though. The breakfast room is pleasant & adjoins a large lounge area & verandah overlooking the lake.

Management were very accomodating & pleasant. I asked to have breakfast earlier than normal and Robyn was happy to provide this.

Overall an enjoyable, albeit only one night stay. I hope to return one dayn

Thankyou for your review. It was my pleasure to be able to make sure you had a good (early) start to your day. Its what Hospitality & Hosted accommodation is all about & as you say sets us above our competition. Hope the golf went well. We would welcome you again in the future. Regards Robyn

Hi Robyn,
We would just like to thank you for a wonderful stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort, warmth and relaxation of our little cottage. We also enjoyed a nice big walk around the Lake and your property.
It was awesome that we were able to bring up our own food and be able to use all the utensils to make mini pizzas for dinner in the kitchen of our cottage.
The spa bath was a real treat as well.

Our experience here was very positive, having stayed for a couple of night while driving up the Sapphire Coast. The grounds are large and well kept. We were there in May so it was too cold to use the pool but it looked clean and well kept. The facilities in our apartment/house were spacious and clean. I might prefer a less institutional looking decor (curtains and carpeting definitely from another era in design, although clean and in good condition). Kitchen was very well appointed and there was an excellent outdoor grille. You can easily buy provisions in town or shop at a larger store such as the BuyLo in Eden to stock up for your stay here). Robyn clued us in on where to find good seafood in town and the grill got good use. The walk into town on the wood promenade, which follows the rim of the lagoon, is very pleasant and there is a wide variety of wild fowl to view on the way. This is a great place to stay and very well located.. I'd suggest that Robyn's Nest consider providing WiFi free of charge in keeping with the trend. This lovely place isn't a five star large hotel where such charges are imposed and having to pay for it reminds one of having to pay to bring a suitcase on an airplane. Otherwise, Robyn' Nest gets a big "A" in my book.

Thankyou for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your time here at Robyns Nest. As our property is so large In order to provide a reliable wifi connection we have had to outsource this task to a local provider. In the past we did have a free wifi setup but found this to be unreliable and unrealistic especially in the busy seasons. However we do endeavour to constantly better the way we provide services and accommodation to our guests and will try to work out a more favourable scenario for the future. If you are ever back down this way we hope you will consider us for a second stay.

Regards Robyn and Greg

This place is the perfect location if you want to be away from the crowds, without being too far away to pop into town for groceries, a meal etc. You get half-way down the access road and feel the relaxing environment creep up on you!

The staff were also fantastic - we had booked way more accommodation than we needed through another website and they were quick to adjust so we got a room that was actually suited to us (the initial booking would have been great for a larger family, but was un-necessary for a couple with a toddler sleeping in his own travel cot).

I very much hope to go back for longer one day!

We stayed here for a few days on our way from Sydney to Melbourne, our first time on the Sapphire Coast. Robyns Nest was a fantastic find, as was the delightful village of Merrimbula. We enjoyed all aspects of the property including the pool, the bush, the bell birds and the great accomodations. We stayed in a beautifully presented cottage which had everything we needed including a very comfortable king size bed. Robyn and Greg could not have been more helpful or welcoming. Would recommend to anyone and we will definitely return.

Room Tip: probably need a car as the location is beautifully isolated, otherwise its perfect.

Our stay at Robyns Nest in March 2012 was planned because our stay in 2009 had been only for one night.Our impression then was that it deserved a longer experience, and we were right. The resort offers either traditional rooms in the main guest house, or self-catering cottages - both are very tastefully decorated and well appointed. The cottages are fully equiped and the accommodation is very comfortable, as well as being beautifully situated on the shores of the lake. The grounds are attractive and the bird life, particularly the Bell Miners, is much in evidence. The service we found excellent and very friendly, and we were sad to leave.
