Recently stayed here overnight in one of the ‘motel style’ rooms. The room was modern, clean and comfortable and came with a small kitchenette and a balcony. In terms of location, it is only a short walk to the beach and right next to a little group of shops including a bakery and couple of cafes. Would definitely consider staying here again if visiting the region.

Hi noleave-nolife (what a great name)
Thank you for your feedback. Our motel style units are a great option for 1 person or a couple for an overnight stay. We recommend guests staying a little longer stay in one of our self contained apartment options. Like you, a number of our guests appreciate the proximity to the bakery, cafes, club & restaurants. The cafe restaurant on the beach next the the surf club has just reopened after a winter break, so that is another option too.
Thanks again, hope you do get back to Tathra soon.
Regards
Rob White

We stayed for one night in the 3 bedroom villa (No. 22). My only complaint is that I wished I could stay a few more nights in there! My short stay didn't give me much time to enjoy the luxuries and facilities of the place. Very cozy and comfortable, if you don't mind the sharing it's a home away from home. Beachfront location. Very clean, free wi-fi.

The villa I stayed in is located at the top of the hill and you can see the beach from there. The master bedroom has a great view. Flip open the blinds, you will see the ocean in front of you! There is a tv and a walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom too so if you're going to fight for rooms, make sure you shotgun the master room!

Wooden floorboards means more noise when people are walking around in the house. Light-sleepers might want to go for the rooms upstairs (master room in this villa is on the 'mezzanine' level).

The photos say it all. Will definitely return if I was planning to set up camp somewhere down the south coast nearby.

Hi Jee_Yg
Thank you for feed back and comment, we appreciate you kind words. It seems you group relay enjoyed your stay in our large villa property. Our 4 bedroom Villa property has just been refurbished, painted, new carpets and just yesterday a new King leather lounge went in. It is a great property for a larger group or for the family that appreciates the quality finishes.
We do hope that you do get an opportunity to return to Tathra and hopefully stay a little longer next time.
Regards
Rob White

My family and I had another wonderful stay at Tathra Beach Houses over the weekend of the 10-12 November.
Close to all of Tathra's ameneties and directly acrosss from the beach - the apartments are a great place to base yourself for your long or short stay.
Our apartment was in the older part however it was very clean and offered all of the things of those offered in the newer style apartments.
My only complaint is that vertical blinds are horrible and if you want to have a sleep in this may not happen - I was awake both mornings at around 5am :( with sun coming through.
The beds and bedding were very comfortable and clean as was that bathroom.
We loved the outside courtyard and made use of the BBQ.
The laundry facilities are brilliant and most likely to be bigger than the average home laundry!
In the older part we also had a pool and hot tub to make our stay even better.
Would I stay here again - YES (I hope the vertical blinds are gone)

Room Tip: See if you can get a room with curtains to block out morning sun

Hi Annie
Thank you for comments. We are very pleased your enjoyed your stay at Tathra Beach House, many of our gusts tell us that really enjoyed being so close to the beach.
Towards the end of last year the Town House Apartment you stayed in was refurbished, the new beds and new bathroom were part of the extensive refurbishment,we get quite a few compliments regarding the quality of our beds!
In some apartments where the bedroom windows face due east we have installed a roller blind to reduce the amount of sunlight in the morning. We will certainly look at doing similar in other apartments now that you have drawn it to our attention.
The court yard and private BBQ are a feature unique to the Town House Apartments, we are pleased you enjoyed this facility.
Thank you once again, we hope you and your family have an opportunity to return to Tathra soon.
Regards
Rob White

The staff are a pleasure to deal with and the location is fantastic. I have used the family and single accommodation - both a good value.

The Beach House is opposite the beach and near coffee shops and restaurants.

Hi Michael,
Thank you for taking time to comment on your stays at Tathra Beach House, we appreciate feed back and comment from our guests. We are very pleased you enjoyed your short stay in a motel style unit. We believe our motel style units are a great option for one person or a couple requiring accommodation for just one or two nights. For longer stays we recommend our self contained options.
We are pleased you appreciated the great food & dining options close by. Our guests have just a short walk to the bakery, two takeaways with great fresh local fish & chips, as well as 3 coffee shops and two restaurants, a little further away you have Asian food options in the Tathra Beach Country Club, great coffee on Tathra Wharf, and Fat Tony's Bar and restaurant, always excellent!
Thanks again Michael we hope you can get back to Tathra soon!

I stayed in one of the motel style rooms, which I found to be functional and clean. It's certainly nothing fancy, and had the cheap and cheerful feel of a renovated university dormintory room.

I can't imagine wanting to stay more than one night here. There is no hot breakfast available, and no rooms service breakfast - you can buy a basic provision pack from reception. You would need to visit one of the cafes in town to get a proper breakfast.

The worst thing was not having parking near the rooms. I had to park in a carpark on the mid level, and haul my luggage up several sets of staircases to get to my room - I had to make 2 trips to do this. What made it more annoying was there were open empty garages under the rooms that no one used all night. Parking up there would have at least saved one set of stairs.

If I was to visit Tathra again I've certainly try somewhere else.

Room Tip: Apartments at from have less stairs.

Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay at Tathra Beach House Apartments. Feed back and comment from our guests is always appreciated.

Our motel style units are promoted as an excellent low cost over night option for guests not requiring the full kitchen facilities available in our self contained apartment and villa options.

We do not operate a commercial kitchen within the property as the majority of our accommodation options are self contained. However we do offer at a very reasonable cost a breakfast pack containing two packs of cereal, fresh milk, orange juice, a fruit pack and a muesli bar. The bakery just 20 meters from our reception offers hot cooked breakfast options. As you suggested other cafes offer hot cooked breakfast options in beach front, wharf and cliff top locations.

Our property is on a steep, fairly dramatic site, the advantage is that it affords some fantastic ocean views and interesting architecture, the down side is that all of our options have stair access in some form. The usual motel access would be to park in front of the unit to unload luggage and walk up one flight of stairs to the unit. In most cases, if an apartment garage is available it would be offered, I apologies if this did not occur in this situation.

On our web site we suggest guests should contact our reception to discuss any special requirements we then recommend accommodation options that best suit their requirements.

Thank you once again for your comments, we do hope you return to Tathra in the future.
