“Very quiet & quick walk to the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2009

I really liked the stay at this hotel. The place was very comfortable. The internet was the only let down, being so incredibly slow we couldn't get our work done.

Stayed with a colleague in the 2 bed loft apartment, which was made for a young family, not 2 adult colleagues. However, saying that, I still enjoyed the quiet of Tathra & would go back with my family.

, Manager at Tathra Beach House, responded to this review, May 6, 2010
Unfortunately we did have problems with our free guest wireless internet, we believe these issues have now been resolved, we naturally apologize that the guest had the problem. We do have a computer for internet access available for guest use in our reception.
Our loft apartments are great for a family, not ideal for 2 adult colleagues sharing, we do have options that are much more suitable. We are always happy to, and encourage guests to discuss their requirements so we can recommend a style of accommodation that best suits their requirements.

My family and I have just returned from our first stay at Tathra Beach House, and we'll definitely be back.

The location is excellent - just across the road from Tathra beach, and close to a range of shops (including cafes, restaurants, grocery stores and a pharmacy). There are several spas and heated pools onsite, and the accommodation is very comfortable.

I have been reluctant to write a review about the Tathra beachhouse apartments, simply because I didn't want to let the secret out how great they are.
It doesn't matter which unit (Treetop, Oceanview, Loft etc) you stay in, they are all great. Very clean, towels changed every 2nd day, washing powder provided to last at least a week. Lots of little things that make your stay special. Owner are terrific!

We stayed here only 1 night but found the apartment was in a good location. We had an ocean view apartment. Both bedrooms were a good size and the bathroom was clean and nicely presented. The living area and kitchen we didn't actually have time to use but they were well furnished with a casual feel.

We have stayed in a 2 bedroom beach view spa apartment for around a week on two occasions.
We found the unit to be very clean and well equiped if a little sterile.
The furniture was a little uncomfortable and the walls are without any pictures etc. The main bedroom could do with a TV and internet access could be added to improve the experience.
The grounds and pool/spa are beautifully kept and are well maintained.
The town of Tathra is very relaxing with great beach but not much else. Restaurants are thin on the ground but thankfully the units are well equiped for cooking and Merimbula isn't too far.

I stay in the town houses every year. They are not as modern as the other apartments but offer a huge space and balcony. Perfect location just walk out and across teh road is the beach. And you're right next to a cafe then pizza shop then pharmacy then the hang out of the fish adn chip shop but you have to walk down a drive way to get to your house so its not noisy. I know the managers and they are very friendly and I have family coming up and different times and its very easy to organise as they are felxible.
The only thing that needs changing are the blinds and the annoying tv makes a huge sound when you turn it off hehe but other than that its perfect. Even has a little garden out the back to cook all the fish you caught that day and you have the two options of an older warmer pool or a colder modern pool. Excellent. Will always come back

We booked our 10 nights at Tathra purely from the website, and were unsure exactly what to expect, knowing from experience that often the reality does not live up to the glossy photos. The premises did not disappoint on any level! We stayed in a 2 bedroom Ocean View Spa Apartment, and could not fault anything. Every night was spent falling asleep listening to the waves breaking on the beach, after a relaxing spa on our decking whist watching the stars. Bliss! The apartment was clean and spacious, and management were happy to change our linen halfway thru our stay upon request. The pool and bbq area were brilliant : cleaned and maintained daily to the highest standard. Walking distance to the bowling club for dinner (very nice meals), and a free courtesy bus to pub (ordinary) or chinese at the golf club (excellent). We enjoyed it so much, we are going back this December for another 10 nights. Considering what you pay these days for a 2 bedroom cabin in a caravan park, we think this is fantastic value for money. We have 2 teenage girls and they love it here. If you like the beach/pool and balmy weather, this is the place to be. Just be aware there is no hustle and bustle and things are on the quieter side, and you wont find an action packed holiday. The limited number of places to eat out is worth mentioning (this didnt concern us, as we did a lot of bbq's) and there is no mobile phone reception - but each apartment has its own direct dial phone number. Loved the fully equipped kitchen, and the 'in room' laundry is great, but no clothes line (everything had to be dried either in the dryer or on the clothes horse on the balcony). Still better than going to a laundromat or doing the communal thing! The layout of the complex is great, and it is extremely well run and maintained. However, if you don't like stairs or have trouble with them, be warned......its quite a trek from the car to the Ocean View apartments with all your luggage/groceries.. No lifts or easy way to lug things!! My husband loves fishing and he is in his element here. For a quiet, relaxing family holiday, this is it. I can see us coming back in years to come.
