Nice motel right in town

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 12 Sept 2020via mobile
Had a lovely stay for three nights in this motel which we were able to walk into town each day/night. Would stay here again. Beautiful pool and bbq area and whilst a basic room, for the price it is definite value.
Date of stay: September 2020
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

We booked in for one night & felt so comefortable that we stayed for a week. The room was clean comefortable neat & had everything that we needed. The motel is right in the middle of the town very easy walking distance from everything. Being so close to town it was surprisingly quiet for sleeping. Jodie & Darren made us feel very welcome & could not do enough to help us. When we left we left something behind & without asking they returned the article back to us by mail. Overall our stay was very pleasant & we look forward to returning again. We can recommend the motel to anyone. Joy & Ron

We stayed one night and weren't expecting much and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean, it had several thoughtful touches, it's in a great location, has comfortable beds & nice bedding & a handy kitchenette.
The owners had taken over the hotel mid December - so just prior to the fires - and as they were so welcoming and keen to please, they deserve support.
I would definitely return for a value for money stay that is near shops, the water, has a great swimming pool and even water views. Bargain.

Room tip: Upstairs has nice water views.

Merimbula is an idyllic town with a perfect beach (Bar Beach) and an enchanting vibe. The South Seas Inn is close to the town centre, so eating places and pubs are close by on foot - and an excellent surf shop. The room was scrupulously clean with air con. Parking was in front and the check in was seamless. I loved jogging along the boardwalk along the lagoon. If you like the Macritchie reservoir in Singapore, you will love Merimbula's boardwalk.

The internet was erratic, however, and I would encourage the management to make it more reliable. The motel has a pool with a childproof fence.

Positives: Comfortable bed, clean room, good size room, lovely surrounds, beautiful pool, close to everything and great views. Clean neat and tidy. TV good, shower good. Comfy chair/couch and plenty of light.

Negative: Air conditioning is only in some rooms and the supplied misting fan doesn't do anything. No ventilation as window only opens on one side of the room. We ended up leaving the door chocked open with the chain across it to get some airflow. Bed a bit hard on the edge and someone had played with the fridge settings so despite there being ice in freezer, our ice cream melted.

Overall, good value but definitely budget end. For only a couple of nights we didn't have a problem but you wouldn't want to be here for an extended period without AC in the height of summer. We would stay again though.

I could not fault our room, comfortable bed, tv clear and sharp, WiFi excellent, very clean, gardens exceptional, pool area, bbq area and function room very inviting. Found both Jodie and Darren to be very friendly and helpful, even though the town was quiet due to the bushfires we still enjoyed our stay and will come back
