Quiet room with amazing views of pool and Merimbula. King size bed so comfortable. Easy parking even though we were on the lower level. Bathroom modernised but shower was a disaster with and held and above shower on one tap water everywhere and not a good drainage system. Towel rail fell off. No shelves to put toiletries. I would stay there again. Pat Burns

Room tip: Request a king bed and room with a view.

Thank you for your lovely review Pat. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your room and the views of the pool and Merimbula. We will follow up with our housekeeping and maintenance teams to investigate the shower further. We hope you will choose to stay with us again when next travelling to Merimbula.

Everything you need at this motel. Excellent reception staff explained all room options. Booking and payment easy. Good size room with balcony and view. Comfortable bed and pillows, two TV's as well. Nice clean bathroom with good shower. Nice to also have a mini bar as well. Room nicely serviced each day as well. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. The rooms are clean, beds and pillows are comfortable, good pressure hot water. Wifi is good enough to work. They offer a free pick up from the airport which is very helpful because there aren't many taxis. Great value for money.

Great location close to shops, restaurants and the walkway across to the entrance walk. Very friendly and helpful owner. Room was large and extremely clean. Highly recommended. A great find in Lakes Entrance.
