My wife & I are frequent visitor & were pleasantly surprised by the improvements made to the rooms and b/room facilities

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 May 2017
We have stayed at this establishment frequently; under the old and new management. Were always made welcome.

Previously; this motel was dated and as stated by cathalice123 in her review, but it was quite retro and comfortable but; the current owners Julie and her hubby have improved it out of sight. The rooms have been refurbished in a tasteful manner. The bed spreads and pillows are brand new and most importantly spotless. The bathrooms have been refurbished; the toilet pans & seats are new. Each room is now fitted with a reverse cycle air conditioner/heater. The inefficient old panel heaters are gone.

This motel also has periodic Seniors Specials. At the time I booked our room, we were offered a three night special for under $300.00 which also included a continental breakfast, a bottle of wine and a Seafood Platter dinner that included 10 cold prawns, a dozen oysters salads, fruit, deep fried fish, prawns, scollops and chips.

The breakfast menu was a Continental Breakfast, with your choice of cereal or toast, Compote of fruit which was more than a generous serve, and your choice plunger coffee, tea or instant coffee.

In all, my wife and I had an extremely pleasant and wonderful holiday which weas highlighted by our stay at this motel.

Many thanks Julie and hubby. BRILLIANT SERVICE and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

    She went out of her way to assist filthy hikers with very dirty laundry! Room was immaculate, quiet and there was plenty of very hot water. Had dinner at Wheelers oysters. Excellent night in Pambula. Recommend.

    Dated (1970s) motel but kinda retro and cool
    Good value and not far from Merimbula
    Friendly informative staff
    And absolutely spotlessly clean
    The cleaning staff singing as they went about their business-delightful

    The room was clean and neat. There was a little kitchenette which was handy. It was nice to sit outside on the veranda with the breeze. Note that there can be a bit of traffic noise because it's on a main highway.

    This place had everything you wanted. Peaceful area, close to cafe's and shops. Rooms were clean and simple but what we needed. Staff were very friendly and welcomed us on arrival. Overall a great experience and pool was good too. Definitely recommend Wild Ryes Cafe. Amazing coffee and yummy sweet and savoury treats as well

    The room was well equipped with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, free WiFi, kettle, fridge, toaster, hair dryer. The water pressure in the shower was excellent. There is an indoor pool on-site. Its walking distance to the wet land, oaklands brewery, the main street. We will be returning to stay here next time we are in the area.
