Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The balconies sit almost on top of the Clyde River. Rooms are large and furnished with the guest in mind – large desk, king-sized beds, comfortable seating and heaps of space for bags. A common area on the first floor has lots of seating designed, I guess, for kids and those days when the sun doesn’t shine. Pretty good for adults too. Well located, a restaurant, a club over the road, 50 metres from the main street. What’s not to love about this place? If you are booking, it’s worthwhile holding out for a room on the river side rather than the front, which overlooks a busy road. I was lucky enough to get the river and the wave's lullaby. I recommend the Esplanade.

One of the best, nicest and largest rooms we have stayed in. The room decor was modern and new, with great balcony views across the river and out to the ocean. Quiet and easy walking along the river bank and town centre. Loads of restaurants nearby and dont need a car.

Beautiful room with views on to the water. We stayed one night on our way to Melbourne. The decor is spot on and room has such a nice ambience. Close to town , just a short walk away but amazingly quiet considering it is on a main road. The one problem is finding the place, by the time you see the sign there is nowhere to stop. So you need to drive further up the road and do a u turn then another u turn to get into the driveway. I think it could be better signposted well before the hotel as it is not an easy road to navigate u turns on. All in all the place makes up for the inconvenience.

My wife & I stayed at The Esplanade, Batemans Bay, NSW for four nights in November 2023. The staff that we encountered were very helpful and friendly which always makes for a great experience. The room we stayed in (108) was large, comfortable and very well maintained and had magnificent views out to the river and beyond. The Esplanade is located just across the road from The Batemans Bay Soldiers Club which is very convenient, and an easy stroll to all of the main shopping areas of Batemans Bay. If passing through Batemans Bay overnight or staying for a few days - I would recommend that you consider this motel for your stopover. (the attached pic was taken from the balcony of our room)

Rated 5 star in customer service, rooms and offering. I have stayed at the Esplanade for over 20 years and it only gets better. The receptionist today was outstanding and an asset to the hotel. Thank you so much and the next generation of loyal customers are coming through. I can’t thank you enough. Saarah

We decided to pay the extra for a higher floor water view room and were rewarded with a late afternoon glass of wine with some local seafood snacks on the balcony overlooking the bay. The room was fresh, clean and very comfortable. It also addressed one of my pet peeves in that the bathroom was large and has a basin set into a generous vanity unit with shelving which means that you have somewhere to put your clothes or pyjamas without them getting wet. The lovely club facilities across the road are a bonus.

We always have 1 night here prior to an overseas Trip . We booked the Deluxe Ocean View Suite as it has the an all around Balcony and is very Spacious . We were last in this Suite just before last Christmas and the shortcomings I pointed out in that review are still outstanding . The Room was still as comfortable as ever and we had a very enjoyable stay . We had Breakfast in our Room the next Morning . Mostly the Breakfast was fine except for the Tomato on my Wife's Plate was "off" and was Horrible . We let Reception know about it on Checking out . Despite this , we will definitely be back

Customer service lacking. Peter at front desk was unwelcoming..it all seemed too hard!! He was quite intrusive the following morning and intent on cleaning balconies above despite the fact they had not been occupied .. it was also before check out time so clearly could have waited! Note … Balconies and views are nice but not at all private - we were celebrating a special occasion and so when we were joined by Peter cleaning balconies it was not ideal Furthermore if staying throughout a busy period on level 1 you would also not have any privacy from balconies above .. if staying in an executive suite you maybe disappointed. The rooms are nice but have minimal lighting. The coffee /tea are not as advertised - standard tea bags and only 2 coffee sachets !! The water view is the hero - the rest is subpar!

Nice, conveniently located motel. Service was personal, helpful and friendly. Definitely not a four star accommodation and if road noise bothers you, you'll need to upgrade to the water side of the facility. But we were on the road side and had no difficulty sleeping. Wouldn't hesitate to return.
