Value
South Seas Motel is located in Merimbula just a quick walk from the main street, which makes it the best motel location in town! You can walk to pretty much everything.. There is a range of motel rooms all with air conditioning. Our deluxe rooms offer are more spacious, are located on the ground floor and have their own private balcony overlooking our awesome pool and expansive gardens. Our deluxe rooms come in queen, Twin (single and queen bed) and a family room (queen bed, 3 x singles beds). A kitchenette is provided in these rooms that have a cook top, microwave, sink and fridge. Our standard motel rooms offer a variety of queen and twin rooms, some are ground level and some have a common balcony. All have their own outdoor patio setting. A small kitchenette is also available with a microwave, fridge and sink. What our guests love the most is the location, the pool and sun deck area and the gardens, and the welcoming and friendly vibe.

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.

Fantastic accommodation, fantastic pool, fantastic host & fantastic time. Will definitely be back. This is my 3rd visit in the last 12 months and will be back again. The room was spotless and very comfortable and the grounds and pool were beautiful. We were also lucky enough to be there for cocktails around the pool which was amazing. I would definitely recommend South Seas Merimbula

This was a pleasant surprise and good value for the price. Very good for an overnight stay. The layout of the room was good and the bed was comfortable. Parking is easy and good size spaces. We have re-booked already for our next overnight stay in Merimbula.

South Seas Motel has a fantastic reputation and it certainly lived up to expectations. We arrived late in the evening and check in was a breeze, Sally had even put the lights and heating on in our room for our arrival. The rooms were sparking clean with everything you need (we were travelling with kids so the well equipped kitchen amenities and Netflix were a blessing). The outlook over the pool area from our room was lovely to wake up to, and everything that Merimbula has to offer was within walking distance from the motel. It’s little gems like these that you find along the way that make holidays so refreshing and fun, all the little extra details make a huge difference, and this is why South Seas is by far the best Motel in town. We will definitely be visiting again.

Very basic but good for the money, very clean and presentable, plenty of off street parking, we had very noisy people at 1am carrying on for a while, we messaged the owner in the wee hours and they quickly put an end to it. Nice they provide a contact number at anytime.

Really nice pool area, and close to the shops and shore, friendly welcome. Booking.com asked me to review this motel and I included a few minor things that needed attention in our room. To my pleasant surprise I received a very positive reply telling me that they would look into my comments. All good.

Nothing was a problem, early check in, late check out, and even gave me a lift to the airport. Great pool area, which would be great for a young family. The motel is central to everything, breakfast restaurants, easy walk to the RSL & the Bowling Club. Just a great motel

It happened to be freezing when we visited Merimbula this summer. Sally got us extra blankets and got the heating going. It was cozy and comfy for our family of 5. Good price and good location. No complaints. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Thank you.

The motel was in a good location, parking easy and there was a slight water view. Everything looked nice and up to date but the bed was atrocious. As soon as my partner moved, the whole bed moved making sleep difficult. The water pressure was good and amenities fine for an overnight stay
