Will Definitely Be Back

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Jan 2024
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.
