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.

Lovely retro motel. Vicky, the owner, is lovely. She couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful; suggested a wonderful place for drinks last night - Dulcie's Cottage - and an equally good breakfast place on the beach. The room rates are amazingly low. The view out back is spectacular. Only cost us about $10 to Uber into town.

Literally my first ever stay in the south coast and I have already fallen in love with this place. It is absolutely fantastic. Bill is very humorous and a great guide to the town. Rooms were spotlessly cleaned and has the best view.

I intended to stay 3 days, 15-18 June 2020. I loved Merimbula and Norfolk Pine so much I stayed 2 weeks and departed 29 June 2020. I had 2 big overseas trips booked this year and of course I was heartbroken I could not go BUT the South Coast of NSW is spectacular. It has to be one of the best kept secrets in Oz. Bill's motel is on top of the hill overlooking the whole district. Sunrise on one side. Sunset on the other. Glorious views over the whole of Top Lake. The squad of kangaroos comes into the garden every afternoon around 4pm in winter. I was just in heaven. I can imagine having a sunset BBQ in summer would be superb. The rooms are really neat and well kept. Everything worked just fine. Plenty of hot water. Nice cosy electric blanket. I am definitely coming back when it gets warmer. FYI - best and fastest walk from town to motel is up Monaro Street - less steep and a few minutes faster than Merimbula Drive - takes 20 mins from bus terminal to motel but it is still steep - I would pre-book taxi if you have luggage. Thank you Bill and Robyn for your wonderful hospitality. Tips - Cranky Cafe on Main Beach has BEST egg and bacon roll I have ever eaten. BEST coffee and raspberry/white chocolate muffin I have ever eaten at Mitchies Jetty Cafe. McDonalds Merimbula has one of the best lunch views in town but you have to fight the kids for a window table or get there early. If you are are a nature lover, the walking track from Spencer Park to Bar Beach and The Wharf Restaurant has just gob-smacking views of the area. Make sure you go to Pambula River Mouth for the most beautiful crystal clear water and spectacular natural scenery. You can actually walk approx 7km along the beach from Pambula back to Mitchies Jetty. You can take the bus to Pambula at 8.25 or 9.43am and walk all the way back. It was great! And FYI - I thought Merimbula was BEST town to stay at as it was larger and had more offerings. From there you can do day trips to Eden, Bermagui and Narooma - all doable by bus if you need to - see Premier Motor Service. Bus departs around 6.30am and you can come back around 5pm. It works out well. Eden and Bermagui were great and beautiful, but small towns and personally, I wouldn't stay there - I don't think there are enough entertainment options albeit Bermagui Pub for sunset drinks on the terrace is amazing - and I mean AMAZING SUNSET views. Narooma was also fantastic. I saw at least 12 fur seals less than 20m from me on the rockwall near Australia Rock (Wagonga Head) and then if you walk around the perimeter of the Golf Course you will see the most jaw-dropping scenery you could imagine including a huge grotto with aquamarine blue blue water. Amazing. Lunch at Quarterdeck was also an amazing highlight - a quirky, cool, Hawaiian/Blues venue on a wharf on the lake in Narooma. I went twice!

My second stay and the room was once again immaculate. Clean, fresh and very comfortable bed, bedding and plenty of hot water. It is a two minute drive or 15-20 minute walk for shopping, restaurants and clubs. Friendly staff and a gorgeous view out over the lake, will stay again.

Thankyou to Bill and his staff! We had to evacuate our town due to fires! Booked two nights, rang for an early check in, Bill told us to check in and stay for free for as long as we needed! Outstanding service and with a touch of humanity thrown in! Cheers and we will be back have a great 2020! Heath and Trudy, Bermagui!

We were offered a very reasonable walk in rate by the friendly host and were pleasantly surprised at the standard of accommodation. Decor was dated but rooms were very clean and well equipped. The units offer super views over the river and is an easy drive back into town. The fact that we could photograph numerous kangaroos on the back lawn was just a bonus!

You couldn't find a better Motel in Merimbula, where kindness, consideration, and friendliness is the policy. Very comfortable beds, good bathrooms, and a generous shower. TV, kettle, tea and coffee, fridge. Views over the top lake and airport. Watch the seaegals sore above the lake, and kangaroos on the back lawn. This motel is your 'Go To' accommodation in Merimbula.

Stayed at this motel last minute and was like a step back in time to the 70s. The decor was all old school but in immaculate condition. To the point I took video to send my wife. Loved it! Very well looked after and super comfortable bed. Great views out over the river from the elevated position. I was curious after seeing some initial photos of the older motel and the high number of positive reviews. Would definitely recommend this motel.

Brilliant host. Brilliant room. Brilliant and clean. Brilliant setting. Cannot recommend this place enough. When we arrived we were given a map of the best places to dine. We got lovely fish and chips and ate them out the back of motel watching the kangaroos that come up every night. Also a couple of kookaburras that were not concerned that we were sitting there. Bill the owner could not help us enough. I phoned to book, he was busy with people so phoned me back five minutes later.
