Just had the most wonderful time staying at the Zorba motel the last few days. My husband and I stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment upstairs on the waterfront with our daughter. The cleanliness of this motel and attention to detail is to be commended. Both management and staff are hands on and always there to lend a helping hand...

Good afternoon. In defence to your review it should also be noted that we explained to you our lounge suite which is only 2 years old was recalled from the manufacturer and we were awaiting a replacement. Which actually arrived 2 days post your departure. While the material was wearing away, it was still clean and covered with clean throws....

This traditional motel has been modernised with bright furnishings. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Being right on the waterfront it doesn't have the road noise of most of the other motels in town. With fantastic views and a convenient location the Zorba is great value for money.

Centrally located in the town centre walk to all the shops. Very clean and comfortable. Get the waterview rooms it is nice to sit outside and look over the bay. Perfect for two or three night stay to look around the area. Staff very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Zorba Motel during a driving holiday. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The room was clean, the bed was lovely and the view of the water was wonderful. The Hotel is in a great location for shopping, eating and having a lazy beverage or two. Absolutely recommend this place if you're staying in Batemans Bay!

Friendly and helpful staff. Great location right next to the esplanade. We stayed with our toddler and found the room to be very comfortable and clean. The car park was good and is secured at night. We will be back!

You need to get past a rather tacky exterior and into beautiful seafront views. Helpful staff and good parking. The downside is this is a 40year old motel and noise from adjacent rooms can be a bother. Best is the quick access to the Esplinade and the visiting parrots.

Highly recommend the waterside rooms. Great view over the river and out to the heads. Rooms are clean and plenty of space. The location is easy walking distance to restaurants and there's walking paths right outside.

We stayed here for one night and after a 520 km motorbike day the welcome of Debbie felt like a warm bath. Room was good and decent size and modernly decorated, and the view over the water was nice. Nice central location.
