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.

Summerhill motor inn is fantastic. Clean, spacious, comfortable and centrally located. Staff were excellent and very friendly. We were pointed in the right direction for all the best eateries. Bathrooms are newly renovated and large. Comfortable beds and rooms had everything you need for a great stay.

Great motel, best we’ve stayed in since we left home a week ago. Very modern, our host was great and upgraded us to a just renovated room with a great bathroom, he also pointed out all the restaurants and supermarkets which are all walking distance. Bed was super comfortable. I would highly recommend and would stay again if in Merimbula.

This motel had all I needed for a quiet and comfortable two night stay in Merimbula. I could park outside my room and the room itself appeared to be quite recently renovated with a full range of facilities. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked well when the outside temperature dipped to about five degrees and the shower had decent pressure. Everything was spotlessly clean. I never met the owners or staff as my checking in was contactless. The motel is close to a variety of restaurants and cafes.

Room 6 ground floor. Seems to be recently renovated. Nice well lit bathroom and bedroom. Quite spacious room. Air conditioning (on heat) worked well. Basic tea and instant coffee. Plates and cutlery suppled. Short walk to restaurants in town. Never met the operators as everything was ‘contactless’ We’d stay here again.

I've stayed here many times (6). Rooms have been refurbished and are excellent. Enquire excellent shower head and lighting. Bed comfy, free Netflix and great kitchenette. Check in was contact-less with a text received on the day advising room number. Key was inside and transaction was taken care of remotely. Excellent service and facilities as always.

We loved our stay at Summerhill, stayed for two nights during our camping trip when the bad weather hit. The room was not what we were expecting, it looked brand new having been recently renovated. Heaps of space, a beautiful little kitchenette including toaster. The bathroom had a large bench space with storage and hair-dryer. Netflix and Googleplay on the smart TV so I could log into my home account. And the bed and pillows were lovely - firm but soft. All the things that made luxury after roadtripping with the basics. We were able to walk to everything we had planned - boardwalk on the water, tapas bar, got pizza delivery, massages, Woolworth and shopping. We also had morning dips in the pool. Oh and a silly thing but often terrible in motels- great lighting so you can actually see in the room! Plus ceiling fans and reverse cycle that aren't noisy. Highly recommend.
