We were a family of four looking for last minute accommodation in Merimbula in the January school break. From our first phone enquiry to Sapphire waters, Peta (The owner) was most helpful and friendly in arranging a room that would be suitable for our stay. As our travelling dates were a bit up in the air, Peta was flexible in...

We arrived here after a hot day as a last minute booking. This place had aircon, quiet and clean. The room was very spacious and well set up to put your feet up after a busy day. It is walking distance to restaurants and town.

Not good value for money for the price when compared to the many other similar properties we stayed in during a 5 week tour of Australia. No fresh milk provided, only small plastic UHT pots. Crack in...

Airy, spacious rooms. Good location, on top of the hill up from the main street, so you can catch a glimpse of the water. Overall, loved Merimbula and Sapphire Waters made it a comfy stay. The motel had a small mini bar where the snacks were - for a change - priced reasonably. The only drawback would probably be not...

We only stayed a night in a family room. Though decor is a little dated it was clean and tidy. Room provided a small kitchenette to service breakfast/lunch needs. Though our room was positioned right next to a roundabout on the main road into town it was relatively quiet during the night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Motel is in...

I have stayed at this motel for the last 7 years as part of the Wall to Wall Police Memorial Ride for Remembrance and the place is like staying with old friends. You are always really warmly welcomed and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Looking forward to staying there next year again.

We stayed a few nights ago for a short break. This motel exceeded our expectations in every way. Firstly we were greeted by a lovely lady (Peta) who was very helpful & happy to tell us about what was happening around town whilst we were there, including good places to eat & sight see. The room we stayed in was...
