Very good value accommodation with good location

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Jan 2020via mobile
Stayed here with family and friends for one night following long drive from Canberra and trips along the coast to some of the most beautiful beach resorts anywhere in New South Wales. This small but very well maintained hotel/Inn was a joy to stay in and the manager whose name I think was Craig was extremely courteous and friendly. The rooms we stayed in were clean and the shower and toilet were also well kept and functional. The bed was also very comfortable and fairly large so no worries about falling off during the night if you are somewhat tall. The room also had tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. We were also able to purchase beer and wine from the small selection Craig had in the fridge inside the small reception room which saved us a lot of trouble finding it outside as it was Xmas day and most of not all shops were closed. Would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling to or through Merimbula and it’s very good value for money too.

Hi Guys
Appreciate the great review, very happy you enjoyed our facilities and area.
The Far South Coast has so many untouched and pristine beaches and surrounds that guests don't realize the beauty until they explore the area. The area will bounce back from even the current bush fires.
Hope to see you guys again in the future
Cheers Craig

Craig and his staff looked after us and many others during the recent fire emergency. The rooms and the whole site is kept immaculately . Very understanding of us as locals needing to leave our home and get into
Town. Highly recommend the hospitality the clean rooms and proximity to everything In town. Great value. When this is over Merimbula will need you back tourists! Come stay here.

Comfortable room with great staff.
You could walk into town to the shops and eateries.
We didn’t use the pool put other families staying enjoyed it.
The seaview would have been lovely if we hadn’t had the smoke from the nearby fires, which was a shame.

Craig even helped us find a way out of the fires to make our way back to Melbourne, with so many fires and road closures it was a difficult time to enjoy our holiday. Hopefully we can return to Merimbula in the future.

Booked here for a 4 night stay.
Hosts Janice and Craig were very obliging and friendly. We were there mainly to relax and it fitted our needs perfectly. The room was spotless and tidy. It's a few minutes walk to town or the club and coming back to the motel is uphill, but worth the value.
We will make sure it's our accomodation when we revisit in a couple of months time

Room tip: Upstairs rooms have a better view

We stayed here for five nights and found the location to be ideal, reasonably priced and spotless. The rooms are the brick wall style which was a little dated but understandable at $90 a night. The swimming pool was lovely as we stayed during a humid spell. Air conditioner struggled a little in the humidity but overall great value with friendly hosts.

Exceptionally clean. A small kitchenette with microwave. Comfortable bed and pillows. Bathroom was super clean and had a generous bench space. Less sure about the view but would recommend and I would stay again and for longer.
